Buba, this week you have fallen in love with the grungy look. I bought you sweatpants so it’s easier on swimming days and at nursery and you somewhere between the store and home fell in love. You have insisted on wearing them 24/7 long after they are dirty and gross. I have had to pry them from your death grip just to wash them. It both frustrates and tickles me. I like you to have the clean look of jeans but lately it’s just easier to let you live in them. I am not sure how long this phase will last, hoping not very long, Mommy isn’t a fan of sweatpants. But while you are being comfy I can’t blame you. I stay in my pjs long after I should too. It’s little things like this that you make me sit back and think it’s really not that big of a deal. Maybe Mommy should one day buy some and try them out. It seems like many others rave about those sweaty things too, not just you. We have been taking more family walks lately and you are loving them. Just small strolls together around our neighborhood and up into the woods on the paths that hopefully will dry out soon and the grass we will have picnics on come summer. We have been worrying about your speech lately and your hearing. It doesn’t seem like there is any end to things that keep creeping up on us with you. Your hearing test wasn’t great and I worry about you lots now as you are about to start school in September I thought with your allergies I would have to worry enough. Then we found out about your eye sight and now your hearing and speech. Yes, all these things that can be fixed or aided with but things I didn’t expect. I just want you to have the best start in life and those things other kids can be quite cruel with and that petrifies me. Bullies petrified me growing up and now more than ever for my children.
Missy Moo your smile never fades and that twinkle in your eye is magical. Yes, this photo is blurry but it is you in a nutshell. Your adventurous climbing side in action. I don’t think you stop moving from the moment you wake until your head hits that pillow at night. My photos are constantly being blurred by your rush to do the next thing, see what’s just around the corner. Your laughter is no longer that little baby sound and it’s turning into more of a little girl squeal. You are getting more bossy by the day thinking the world should revolve around you which tickles me because it seems every little girl thinks they are the queen of the castle, myself included. lol We have been having a blast with you lately as your personality really starts to form and shine. You are ever the entertainer for us all on a daily basis. Your favorite things as the moment are to sing and dance around with your baby dolls and stuff animals in tow. They are your dance partners, your audience as much as we are. You love the lime light so I am watching you and I hope you use that as a positive attribute when you are older. As I mentioned we have been taking lots of small family walks together and you are loving it as much as your brother. You both are outdoor babies indeed. You love the park and playgrounds and scream when it’s home time even long after the rain begins to fall and your little fingers are numb. You are my tough little cookie monster.
