Last night, Kyle and I drove to Ontario (California, not Canada) see our friends Melissa and Tristan. They were visiting from New York City to see Melissa’s family. The happy couple is expecting their first baby in January. Totally exciting. Babies open a whole new world of things to talk about.
And when your baby starts talking, that is a whole other world, too. (Did you like that segue?) Laidey has been picking up all sorts of words lately. One of her latest words is “jerky,” which has become a favorite food—right up there with cashews, sandwiches, and plain multigrain bread that she steals out of the bag when I’m not paying attention. Not that I mind—at least she leaves the cookies alone (or she feeds them to Bristow).
I love hearing Laidey put words into sentences. For instance, if I ask her, “Do you like this?” She’ll say, “I like it!” (She picked that up from Go, Dog. Go!) Tonight she told me that the frog was putting on lotion. It sounded like, “FROK? lightle lightle HANS. un LUSHON,” but I got the message.
Today was Monday, and it felt like it. Getting back into the swing of things after a few days off was tough. And it was no fun to say goodbye to Kyle as soon as I got home. But this girl makes Mondays (and every other day) worth it.
Now it’s off to bed so we can do it again tomorrow…
