Confused, anniversary day, holding hands

June 22, 2017

1. I’m looking forward to when Rachel can tell me, or I can figure out, what she means when she says ‘pem’. It’s not ‘pen’, and she says it in different parts of the house and different times of day.

2. Yesterday was such a lovely day. S took off work for our anniversary and we trekked up to a bird sanctuary, where we walked one of the paths. It was so peaceful there. We didn’t see many birds, but we heard them. The path was pretty level, so Rachel walked a good portion of the 3/4 mile trail we chose. Afterwards, we had a picnic lunch at one of the gorges, then decided to go ahead and hike it. Rachel had to be a backpack baby for that one. My legs were trembling on the stairs on the way down, but it felt so nice to be out. After we came home, we whipped up an orange parfait dessert for later.

3. ‘Hand, daddy. Daddy, hand’, are some of the sweetest words I heard from Rachel on the walk at the bird sanctuary. She was very independent most of the walk, but sometimes wanted a little extra support.
