Bunch of Nonsense
JK loves to eat. She also thinks it's great fun to purposely get her arm stuck between her tray and her chair. She'll wedge it in there and calmly keep eating or talking to herself until she decides she wants it out. Then she'll try to get my attention gradually getting louder and more insistent. The second I release her arm, she sticks it back in there again! The look on her face says it all. In the name of honesty and full-disclosure, this is the ugly side of my backyard: I'd really like to build a potting bench thing all along the back of the house under the windows. It would have sections of the top hinged for the garbage can, air conditioner, and wood, and cubbies for my garden tools and pots. It would be beautiful. But it would also cost more money than we are willing to spend. So I tend to ignore that side of the yard. It's even worse right now because I had to take the hose holder off the wall in order for the condo board to paint...which they probably won't get around to this year again. It's thirteen years past due. JK's first experience in a swing: JK's first taste of playground sand: (picture taken by my friend E at mom's group last week) Speaking of JK, she can now clearly say 5 words: tongue, mama, dada, baby, and puppy. She still won't say it on command though. She tries to say "toes" too, but it sounds more like "dis". And she learned how to crawl yesterday! Finally! Now I have to really child-proof the house. Which is difficult in the kitchen because the cabinet locks that go around the handles don't fit, due to that ding-dong of a builder and his ridiculously positioned handles being too far apart. Maybe I'll just pull out the playpen until she gets tired of that. mrs.heidi and baby D are coming over today. I invited a few other moms as well but no one else has gotten back to me. Oh well, maybe next time!
