toddler activites, food, photos, and other orbital occurrences

Last week a friend of ours gave Amber the Dr. Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham" and it has become and ongoing dialog in our house. It of course started with Amber asking to have the book read again and again. Then she started reading it, (or turning the pages and saying "sam I am", "i am sam", etc.) Then one morning I made her some eggs and put some pepper in them (b/c i was having some too) and told her we were having green eggs. She ate most of them and then got a bite that had too much pepper and started saying "i do not like green eggs and ham" and meant it! Poor kid, I took advantage of her imagination by adding the pepper. Today she sat down with another book and started reading it, only she was reciting the words to "green eggs and ham" not the book she was pretending to read :-) She did this about 5 times, reading to me and to daddy and sometimes the end would have things from the book she was holding and not green eggs and ham. I got a couple of cute videos that I will probably never get around to posting, but they do exist. We have also been reciting parts of the book as we walk down the street, see someone eating eggs, meet someone named sam, when it turns dark, when we ride on the train, when we see a house, when we are in the car, or in the rain, or on a boat, or pass a tree,....
