The upside to lots of snow is, lots of cuddle time with Sunshine. ( Forgive the crappy cell phone pics)
I have these moments where I think maybe I’m teaching her all of the right things. Maybe just maybe she is learning how to love from me.
I teach her by doing, by showing, by letting her figure it all out on her own. What she’s learning is starting to show itself in some unexpected ways. ( Check out her Billy Crystal hair in the pic below)
We have these long lazy days where we’re listening to music, playing with baby dolls, and driving around in her car. She tells me Mama! Gooooo! And we’re off!
I show her projects I’m working on, I watch her eyes watch my edits, and I think to myself I hope you’re learning how important it is to be a smart woman. Then I think, this is too deep a thought for a 13 month old and we turn up our music and DANCE with these fine people….
Yesterday we found this recipe for yummy egg rolls- today we will be trying our hand at those! The grocery store is one place we get to often, because its up the street, therefore do-able!
Today was also, go to the doctor for Sunny’s 12 month check up day– YES WE ARE 2 MONTHS LATE!!!!!!!! Believe me I tried, tried, TRIED to get this kid in for a normal 12 month appointment but there are like 8 trillion kids in Park Slope and we had to wait our turn. This makes me think, why don’t I have friends that are doctors? I know some really really smart people- not one of them is an MD….what’s wrong with my friends? Maybe I need some new friends….I tried to befriend our pediatrician but I’m fairly certain he thinks I’m a neurotic and weird.
I’m not sure why but when I ask him questions like “Do you think she’ll ever grow hair on the sides? Because it’s really really bald there, is that weird?”
“I took her for the blood work and she didn’t even cry! Not a peep! Do you think that means she can potentially become a heroin addict because she has no fear of needles?”
“She’s a giant right? Why is she a giant? Does this concern you as much as it does me? OMG does she have a growth hormone disease?” SIDE NOTE: She’s 33INCHES & 22 POUNDS- for those of you who don’t speak baby that’s the height of a TWO YEAR OLD! A TALL TWO YEAR OLD!!!!!!!
I’m not sure but I don’t think other Mothers say or think things like that. Sunny and I we’re in a league of our own 🙂 I love my dancing, baby loving, car driving, semi-walking, giraffe girl!
