I did not have a very good day today. In fact, it almost downright sucked. I was pulled out of sucktitude when I was re-united with Scarlet and we played a rocking game of peek-a-boo and imitate-everything-mommy-does. She can now say “Mama” and “Dada” and can shake her head when we do, nod her head when we do, squeal and sing in imitation of us, and she’s just starting to wave a little. She also giggles, smiles, tumbles, goes “book shopping” by pulling out all of our magazines and books and eating them, and she plays a mean wooden spoon against a pot. She is so damn enjoyable I can’t handle it. She also spends a great deal whining and crying but no need to discuss that!
My day also got a great deal better when Cassidy brought me my favorite cookies from Greggory’s Pastry Shop in Hadley. Oh, and I got free hot buttered movie popcorn today too.
Scarlet and I spent a nice half hour or so in the sunshine:
