Hanging Out at The Zoo.Right now, Lennon is having Speech Therapy. I am taking a step back and letting them work with her without me in the room. Two reasons, I can still "watch" and I think it's going to be good for her. You must know, this is also a nice "break" for mommy. A much needed one, at that. I did however, warn them about the "Cobra Strike" (Thanks, Andrea! for giving it a proper name). She will have your eyeball in her paws in a matter of seconds. Not an exaggeration.
She is a climber. Girl can climb. She is amazingly determined to scale anything. Including, but not limited to backwards flips on and off the changing table. A monkey she is. Changing clothes, diapers, fixing hair.... all of this has suddenly become a great feat to complete the task at hand. You gotta bow up with her. Like, really work your muscles.
Feeding time is taking a turn for the better! I just cannot thank Him enough. Answered prayers and a lot of hard work. Few texture issues! Like, slim to none, people! However, the Cobra Strike will have the spoon, and all food particles, on all parts of the house, and me. Nothing is exempt. Nothing. Now, if we can just get her to put the food in her mouth on her own :/
The Zoo Is Expanding.
I am an aunt - again! A new little monkey has arrived in the form of Miss Adleigh Jane. Precious isn't she? So perfect and beautiful. I will be keeping this doll in 6 weeks when her mommy, my sister, goes back to school, returning from Maternity Leave. I still cannot believe my baby sister has a baby. CRAZY. Now, she knows... she knows what all the other mommies know... that there is NOTHING like the love you have for your child. She knows what it's like to cry for no reason, other than the fact that you are simply in love. She knows now, what it's like to look at other moms that don't "measure up" and think "Why? Why would you not do everything in your power to protect and nurture this angel?" She knows now, what it means to have your heart walking around outside your body.
The Monkeys Are Loose.
...and wreaking havoc in my brain.
