Buba, we have found out you can’t see very well, near or far. It saddens Mommy that you have gone this long and we didn’t know. What started out with a squint and a lazy eye turned into needed full time thick glasses so you could see. All those times we have yelled at you to get back from the tv or for stepping on your sister when you walked by her like you didn’t see her well you couldn’t and we are so sorry. We were worried how this might affect you now and in the future. After an hour of convincing you to put them on you instantly realized you could see and haven’t taken them off since. This new transition was great for us as we fully prepared ourselves that we might have to fight a bit with you to wear them. You have quickly fallen into a routine of setting them on your dresser when it’s bedtime and putting them on straight when you wake up in the morning. We are so proud of you. May this only help you in the future and not hinder you in anyway. I have already noticed how much more confident you are in public now that you can see. This makes mommy happy.
Missy Moo you have become my shy koala bear over night. When someone is talking to you, you now nuzzle under my chin and your thumb immediately goes in your mouth while you peak out over those long eyelashes at them. Your thumb was always something you did when you were tired but more frequently it is becoming a daily habit too. You have become rather dependent on mommy these days, I hope that you will settle in to nursery in a few months ok and that it will help you be more independent. Not that I don’t absolutely love your cuddles and love all the time. I do, and I soak it up every chance I get but I also know nursery will be good for you as it was for your brother. Along with your new shyness you also have little spouts of diva coming out when you don’t get your way. You wave your arms franticly in the air and growl at us if you see something you want. Your screeches are getting louder and more powerful. I fear disciplining you won’t be easy, especially as you laugh when I tell you “no, don’t touch.”
The pestering has only just begun but already driving mommy bonkers. Buba you just want to antagonize your sister to the breaking point these days. But in between your pushing and shoving, there is a sweet boy that still loves his sister very much. You lay in her lap and let her bash the bowl you like to wear on your head! The two of you think it was the funniest thing. You like to think your sister is the same size as you and play. I know half the time you aren’t trying to be mean to her but only want to wrestle her like you do daddy. One day she will be big enough but you find it hard at the moment to understand this. So I continue to play referee between you two. Missy Moo you want to follow your brother everywhere, and have him be at your beck and call but lately you get testy if he even touches you at all. I am not sure if you are doing it to see what mommy will do. Either way I think it’s funny how you want to be able to pull, push and follow your brother but do not prefer him to do it to you. You are a diva in the making, I can see it now.
