"Wucy wants a Tookie"

Max has a hard time with his Ls. And with this Rs... okay, and his Cs and Ks. I have a friend who says she can never deny Max when he asks for a "Tookie." So sometimes it really works for him. And sometimes not.

We were with his friend Collin who stopped him and said "Why do you keep calling me Tollin?" Max gave one of his infamous eye rolls, sighed and explained "I talk different." It makes me laugh, but it also makes me want to hug my baby and tell him he talks just fine.

Hello, I am looking for Claire Ellis that I knew in Oakley, California. We worked together in Relief Society. Can you please ask her to email me at ndrummond@aegonusa.com? I have been looking for her for years and recognized Abram's name.

I couldn't roll my "R's" as a little boy and I remember playing kick ball and telling the pitcher to woll it weally, weally, weally slow and all the kids would make fun of me. Then I would kick that damn ball over the fence for a homer and that would stop them from laughing at me.

That had Ryan and I laughing forever! Collin is one to talk, he still says his name Cawin, and he says Ashwyn, and Shaywee. What were we thinking with "L" names?! We sure miss that Max!! And the rest of the ellis clan...
