So I get this call on my pocket phone from a friend of mine. She tells me that she tried calling on the house phone and she thinks KAtie picked it up. She heard Katie babbling and me in the background. After trying to get Katie's attention she hung up and called my cell. This is all very plausible except we were in the car when the call came in and had been out shopping for the last hour and a half.
Turns out, Katie figured out how to record an new outgoing message for the answering machine. Sigh!
