seimi (in robotic monotone): here. you. go. mommy.
hobbit wife: thank you so much! are you pretending to be a robot now?
(a few seconds of absolute silence, then)
seimi (with hurt feelings): i. AM. a. robot.
seimi: here. is. my. arc. reactor...
(pulls up shirt, points to belly button)
... it's. kind. of. sweaty.

Ela has begun assembling her superhero suit. After all, a girl never knows when she might need to save the world. The tank top and pants are the "underneath" part of the outfit.

The Mayor sewed a cape yesterday for Seimi to go along with Boookie's and Ela's cloaks. Seimi picked out the fabric with absolute conviction,
This fabric. Definitely this fabric. Because it's Dangerous!
When the Mayor added a picture of Thor below for comparison, Seimi did "Apple, Peach, Pear, Plum" and announced that he wanted to be the picture above, not the one below. We agree - who would choose to be Thor when you could be Seimi?

The Mayor left work a little bit early and took the hobbitlings somewhere to celebrate Ela's birthday. That place turned out to be Golden Gardens and it was a lovely afternoon of fun in the sun at the beach.
Here are some pictures of our beautiful princess at the beach.

We played at a stream that comes down across the beach, including "Poo Sticks" (a game that Winnie the Pooh invented).
