Silly, new boots, restful

July 30, 2017

1. Rachel pulled the boppy pillow out of her closet and has been lounging in it when she’s playing in her room. Diaper changes and dressing are often a bit of a challenge, so I asked her if she wanted to use the pillow while I changed her. She nodded yes, and I told her that she was being all fancy lounging in her pillow getting changed. Now every time I change her, she wants to lay in the pillow, and she giggles and says ‘fancy!’

2. Around and around Rachel and I went through the living room and kitchen, again and again. We bought her some rubber boots for wet days and she’s having trouble walking in them, so she clung to my hand and did laps until I got bored, when we switched to practicing taking them off and putting them on.

3. Going out in the cool of the evening and putting hawksweed from the front yard. It is satisfying to pull up.


Toothy grins

  1. Sticking my finger into Baby’s mouth this afternoon to do a check for teeth. She always giggles when I rub her gums. Today though, there was actually the start of a tooth poking through! It probably explains why she’s been a little more fussy lately and putting her hands in her mouth a lot.
  2. A beautiful walk this evening when S got home from work. It was around 80 out, but there was such a nice breeze blowing the whole time.
  3. Baby shredding leaves outside, then looking at me and giggling.

All about Baby

August 9, 2016

1. Baby giggling at her own burp.

2. Baby licking so many things: her books, my kindle, the floor, her high chair tray.

3. Baby’s new sounds and her little ‘huh, huh, huh’ breaths she makes when she’s especially happy and looking for something to get into.


Scrub, scrub

  1. Listening to a new Bastille cd while running errands today.
  2. Carrying Baby to a yard sale up the street and having her giggle all the way home.
  3. A clean kitchen floor. One of my favorite things.
