That Vera, she’s a mover and a shaker. She’s forever doing something new, awing us all with her changes and discoveries. There is no lack of love in this house for this girl. This weekend for example:
The time when Jack rocked her to sleep and he was beside himself with joy. The little sister he prayed for and finally got, he rocked her to sleep all by himself for the very first time; swayed back and forth till she couldn’t hang on any longer. Even though his arms were shaking they were so tired, he didn’t care and wouldn’t set her down till he was sure she was out. And when he was, he laid her down, covered her snuggly, tiptoed out the door and nearly did flips around the living room he was so proud.
No lack of love, folks.
I love parades. Especially holiday sorts of parades. Sister experienced her first one on Saturday. We snuggled her with blankets when we realized she didn’t have a proper coat. #badparents We caught candy, clapped, and whistled. Then promptly went to Old Navy for a new snuggly coat.
I don’t think she ever got too cold though.
We put her in a diaper box. When you have babies, you just do things like that. You put them in ridiculous outfits, you put hats on them, and you put them in things…like boxes. I have to say, she fit this box perfectly and loved sitting in there, being pushed around. She’s kinda wild like that. Her hand slaps against the side and little quick kicks were her seal of box approval. It was fun. She is fun.
She also turned seven months this weekend. She’s eating like a trooper and getting up on her knees like she thinks she can crawl or something. I’m telling her no.
