Wow, missed a lot again...
Kari, I'm so sorry about your mom.
Ummmm, what else? I can't remember. Oh - the ILs took us out for an early anniversay brunch yesterday (10 years married on Thurs - wha????!!
) to a nice restaurant (read: no children's menus/crayons), and Ja and I were completely prepared to grab the kids and bolt if they weren't coping well (we didn't go out to eat once from 18 months to just under 2-1/2 with D, it was more trouble than it was worth)...and..... they did. WONDERFULLY. We rarely go out to eat anyway, so maybe it was the newness of the whole thing. K made
: at anyone who looked at her and Donovan was the picture of gentility, so much so that several people stopped by our table on their way out to say how much they enjoyed watching the kids. We were there over an hour. I wondered what kind of twilight zone alternate universe we entered when we walked through the doors.
There was only one small hiccup, I was getting up to get something (it was a buffet) and K started to screech to protest me leaving, so I popped her in the Maya pouch and brought her with me so I was hands free and could grab my blintzes; and 2 people commented on how cool the pouch was while I was in line.
It was an absolutely wonderful morning! I think the novelty plus the fact that they got to sample such a wide variety of food helped. The food was good, too. So, yeah. Nice day, yesterday.
That's all I can think of now. Oh, parent-teacher conference for D's preschool tomorrow
Oh yeah - K is babbling conversationally now...I have a feeling she's really close to a verbal explosion soon. She's got the cadence, intonation, and number of syllables right, she just needs to get the words themselves out. She did say water yesterday a half dozen times...but the funniest was when she finished a snack, handed her cup to DH and said, "all done, here you go" - not crystal clear, but from the way she garbled it, we both turned to each other and said, "she just said all done, here you go!" at the same time and then started cracking up.
