It's midnight and you're awake wearing a tutu

I'm laughing and think you are adorable, trying to forget about how annoyed I was at you just minutes ago. I tried for 2 1/2 hours to get you to sleep with no success! I even let you cry for about 15 minutes in your crib (okay 10- I'm not ready people). The only thing I can think of is that your almost 4 hour nap today has thrown off your schedule. We went picking strawberries (which, thanks to the experience you will finally eat now!) and you were dead tired. If this means you are sleeping in tomorrow, I'm okay with it, but I highly doubt it...

You walk in full force these days (beginning about 2 weeks ago). I had envisioned in my mind my blog post entitled "Caught in the Act"- because this is exactly how the whole thing happened. You were taking a few steps here and there at the time, when all of the sudden one day Dad looked in Luthien's room where you were playing and noticed you practicing your walking all over the place. Now, you want to walk ALL the time, except at the most inopportune times, where you cling at my legs and whine for me to hold you (when I'm cooking, cleaning, trying to get anything accomplished of course)!

Back to the title of my aforementioned [missing] blog post....as the first steps are one of every mother's favorite milestones, I was excited to write to you about the event. Our camera, however, has decided not to cooperate with my plan, because it broke right at that time and we cannot get anything new right now :(

Words: up, that, this, open, out, off, apple, doggy, daddy, mama, uh-oh, no (your favorite, which you constantly say with an extreme nasal resonance), ball (okay maybe this one is your favorite), uh-huh, nana, banana (similar pronunciations), cat (still working on that velar sound but it's sort of there)...a few more that I can't think of right now.

Okay, gotta go try to sleep again. More soon-

  1. I love these posts. I love hearing about your darling children and your parental experiences. We will miss you this week at the Swensen reunion. It was at a Swensen reunion where I first met you -- many years ago. You and Rome are wonderful and I love you.
