In addition to exclaiming, "hi!" to every man, woman, child, and inanimate object in our midst, Frannie has now added an enthusiastic wave to her greeting. Dinner tonight was a constant chorus of "hi!" followed by Sarah and I adding "hi, lamp! hi, pig wall hanging! hi, teapot!", with much vigorous waving, as if all of our long-lost, dear family members were pouring out of the woodwork. Here's hoping the neighbors don't watch our kitchen table.
