Are you as exhausted from this week as I am? It seemed like we were busier than ever. I know you are feeling a bit neglected. You are doing your usual freak out everytime I head towards the computer, but you are also acting out in different ways. You will give us a warning, usually a wine or shout, and if we don’t respond right away you let us have it. Tonight you looked right at me while you flicked the magnetic calendar off the fridge. Yesterday you looked right at me and swung open the cupboard door. No reaction Mom? So you move on and start pulling my cookbooks off the shelves one by one. Then you look back at me and raise your eyebrows. Check, your move.
You are over your phobia of bubbles. In fact you downright love them now. You squeal as they appear and start shouting “Hi bubbas, hi bubbas!”. Then you laugh hysterically like they just said the funniest thing you ever heard. Oh bubbas.
It has been hot here finally. I have been taking you for long walks and to reward your good behavior I brought you to Jameson park to play in the fountain. The rest of the city was there. I don’t think I have ever seen it so crowded. You didn’t seem to mind and ran right in the water. Who cares if you weren’t in a swimsuit.
You have been very loud lately. At Target you were shouting for Daddy. “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, DADDDYYYYYY!” over and over again. Then it was “Ella, ella ella ella EEEELLLAAAA!”. You were very sweet and only did it when I was doing something embarrassing like reaching for the tampons, or Gas-X. Thanks Bean. I can’t wait return the favor, like oh say when you are 13 and at the mall with your friends, or at the movies on your first date. “Beaaaan, Bean, Beeeeaaan!”. Ha, I can’t wait!
Daddy came with us to swimming lessons today and boy did you guys have a blast. Today you learned how to go head first underwater and practiced kicking. You seem so at ease in the water. When we had our first ultrasound with you the tech said that you were swimming around like a little fish. She was right. You do swim around like a fish, just like daddy.
