July 23 – 1944

David’s 22nd month – 27 lbs – 34 3/4″ tall

David is learning the words we spell – know when we spell “car.” Has finally learned to drink orange juice. Also likes to sip Coke when we drink one. Says, “Coke” very plainly. We now have a piano for John to practice on and he likes to play on it. John is trying to teach him (David) a beginner’s piece. While I take a sun bath he likes to get a handful of sand and pour on my back.

    “John is trying to teach him (David) a beginner’s piece.” I did end up taking piano lessons, but I was never very good at it. John got all the music genes.

    “Lost a finger nail – got it mashed and after two weeks it started coming loose.” That was the middle finger of my left hand; fingernail still has a strange shape. Scarred for life.

    That’s such a great photo of the four of us. 🙂
