Here is R with the earthworm that she found in the backyard earlier this week. She named him Sally, and played with it for a loonnng time. She’s afraid of so many things, but when it comes to animals and bugs, she just loves them. She picks up bugs and plays with them all the time. She would probably even put them in her mouth if I didn’t stop her!
Last week, she and her sister were running around catching lightning bugs at dusk. R would catch one in her hand and start yelling, “Mommy, I got one!” while shaking all over with excitement. She’s so cute.
Anyway, here is a little video clip of her with her earthworm. In the beginning of the video, she is talking about how she and her Papa found an earthworm over in another part of the yard on a different day, and now she has one in her hand.
“Wasn’t he pretty?” she says. “He likes me.”
