The weather continues to leave us all breathless in these parts. The afternoons are spent tromping around our yard. And isn't it spectacular when something new and natural and slightly magical appears....
Perspective...keeping it all in perspective. She is still so tiny in the grand scheme of life. Heck, a year ago we didn't know she was going to be a girl!
And yesterday when Charley got home from school we shared our hard work and told him he had to do some jumping...
Miss Sydney is waving lately. Not always when you say hi or bye bye. But she finds great joy in extending those little hands and making you turn and give her our attention. The other day during in class, the teacher said, "Everyone put out your hands." And everyone followed the directions...including Miss Sydney.
And these two, they are becoming great buds. Henry still pushes the envelope with getting too in her face. But I can totally understand because when you are in her midst you do just want to burrow in and snuggle.
Henry went off to preschool without tears...once we were in the car...and so his reward...a footlong hotdog at Charley's school tomorrow. BIG stuff! He is BIG stuff.
Sydney and I got our shopping done and she has napped for an hour and a half so far. I am banking on one more good late afternoon snooze from the little bird. I think when she naps well, she sleeps well through the night.
Which means half the milk needed for my Boston getaway has already been produced, pumped, and stored. I am feeling like Ed and Grandma Charlie should be well stocked! The countdown begins. I need at least 10 more bottles and I have 9 more nights to get 'er done.
