Murpherelli

I bought Murphy a pirate ship today. I was worried if I could get him to notice it, let alone play with it. He came home from school and, as usual, tried to hop the fence to the backyard. I made him come in and tried to get him to look at it. No dice.

He went outside and played and played and messed around in the backyard as usual for hours, even after it was getting dark. Alason was with him, so don't think I let him out by himself all day long. Anyway after awhile he came in and ate a some cereal and a banana (instead of homemade mac n cheese with broccoli). I'm messing around doing stuff and then notice, not only does he realize it exists, he is looking in it's little nooks and crannies and pushing on parts and seeing how things work on it. I am super excited. I hope he keeps it up.

We had some friends over and they were all crowded in the kitchen and dining room. Murphy came walking through and we told him to say hi. He stops and says, plain as day, "Hello friends." I can't believe the strides he's making! I want to use more than one exclamation mark, I might even be thinking of using one of these :). I want the world to break out in song like in a musical. We may have all never met and rehearsed, but we just make up the song on the spot, and we all know the words and the moves of the choreography.

You should pull a Jenny McCarthy and announce on US Weekly that he is CURED.

p.s. that was supposed to mean towards Jenny McCarthy being an idiot, and not take away from how excited I am about Murphy's progress too.

p.s.s. your musical sounds fun. I'm there, on the side, spinning around in a skirt.

It's so cute he said "hello friends" instead of just hello. I am so glad he is talking more and taking interest in things besides water and sand and stuff
