37.125 inches
COMPLETELY DIAPER FREE! Gave up the largely useless nighttime diapers - were always dry so what's the point? Now to consider when to move to a big girl (twin) bed!

Teresa has made the transition from an digital world to an analog one quite well..
At naptime today, Teresa came out at 3:45 and announced to mama that naptime was over....

Teresa: The short hand is on the 4...
Mama: and where is the big hand? Is it on the 12?

(Teresa pads down the hall...)

(15 minutes later Teresa pads up the hall...)

Teresa: The long hand is on the 12!
Mama and where is the little hand?
Teresa: It's on the 4!!!!

Mama got a box of clothes via UPS today. When I put on a skirt to see how it fit, Teresa says, " you look like a lady." keeper. Skirt and daughter.

Speaking of alarm clocks - Teresa reports to me some afternoons that, "there's a 4 on my clock, quiet time is over." She says Daddy told her she could get up when there was a 4.

Now there are a few problems with this -
First, she does not concern herself with which position on the clock the 4 is in - thus it could read 2:14 and she professes it has a 4 and quiet time is over.
Second, she knows how to change the numbers displayed on the clock so at any given moment she can change the clock to have a 4 in the readout and thus make it "end of quiet time."
Third, as an artifact of the second problem listed above, the displayed time on the clock has no basis in reality!

Fortunately GramMary got her an analog clock for Christmas which we need to install and learn to read.
Sound sleeper

Teresa's little digital alarm clock just went off. In the LR it was insanely loud. Daddy darted off to turn it off and comes back to report Teresa will never awaken for a smoke alarm... she never stirred with the alarm clock bleeping a yard away.
