jordyn and the birdies

so lately birds have been on jordy's mind...

the other day, we were taking a walk and Jordyn stops, points to the electrical wires and asks me, "Mommy, what are those?"
"well, sweetie, those bring electricity to our houses so we can use our lights and tvs, and..."
"oh, I thought we'd just put them up so the birds would have someplace to sit."

then yesterday we were driving down harbor blvd past the fox theater. we'd passed it a few days ago and I had told her it had been an old theater. I told her that they used to have movies and popcorn inside and that there were people working to get it all fixed up so it could be used again.... well, yesterday as we drive past it she says, "look, there's that bird feeder."
"The, what?"
"The bird feeder, mommy. where they have all the popcorn and movies for the birds at the feeder. that's what you told me."

lastly, a story for those of you who know what a princess lover jordy is...
My parents often have jordyn spend the night once a week or so, and did so a few weeks back. She is just the most delightful little creature in the morning, full of observations and ponderings and snuggles and laughter.
Well, this particular sleepover, they had read a Cinderella book the night before. You know, cinderella, her little mice friends and the glass slipper... here is an excerpt of her favorite part...

The next morning, Jordyn wakes up, turns to my mom and says, " do you hear that?"
"what's that, sweetie?"
"those birdies! do you hear them tweeting?"
"i do!"
"I bet they are out there making ME a dress, just like they did with the mice in CInderella!!"

i love this little girl and her imagination... birds making her dresses, going to the movies and living in a city that puts up power lines so birds have a place to sit... :) She sure makes each day an adventure...

to close, here's jordyn pretending to be cinderella last christmas...
