You are 27 months old today. It's been a topsy-turvy month for you. I'm sad to say that I've had a lot of medical turmoil going on for the past 2 weeks and you, my perceptive bunny, know that something is up. You are clingier, more anxious and have been taking your dollies to the doctor because "they are sick". Amazingly, you have garnered all of this information without me directly talking to you about it. What I want you to know is that no matter what happens in the next few weeks, months and years, I LOVE YOU and am doing everything in my power to watch you grow and thrive and live to be an old lady like I hope to be in 40-50 years.
You started out the month lining things up but that seems to have quieted down in the past week or so.
The day before Easter finally arrived and we invited Ms. Jen, Mr. David and Zadie up to help decorate eggs. You happily plopped into Ms. Jen's lap to heat shrink some designs onto our eggs.
You loved looking for eggs in the front yard but were quite disappointed when the egg you bit into turned out to be one of the shrink-wrapped eggs.
Your daddy went back to the store as soon as they opened and Praise Be!, found a replacement and brought it back to much rejoicing by us all. As it turns out, the original Goodnight Gorilla was hiding after all...underneath Daddy's computer bag where someone (KATE) hid him in the first place. So now we have twin gorillas which you have, amazingly, willingly shared with Lucy.
This one episode notwithstanding, your memory usually amazes me. You normally remember where every toy was left, what conversations took place, and events that happened. A recent conversation with Dr. Ettner was about Babar. I had to tell him that we did not have any Babar books yet and that was why he was getting the blank look. Not two weeks later, quite by coincidence as I had not mentioned it to anyone, your Yia Yia and Pappou sent a Babar book to us. When I told you the title of the book, Babar's Book of Color, you said, "Did Dr. Ett'er give me that book?!"
Speaking of Dr. Ettner, you had a well-baby checkup again this month. Here are your stats:
Weight: 26.5lbs in a diaper
Height: 34.5" recumbent length
You are growing up my love. I find it one of the most enjoyable and amazing things I've ever had the good fortune to experience.
