Guess that video was determined to have its own post.
After thirty minutes she fell asleep, even though we were seating by the speakers. P had stated earlier that she would not doze off because she would be too much into the lights and music. When he noticed that she was asleep he quipped that we should not have made her so comfortable. Baby S woke up thirty minutes later when a fire engine siren disrupted her slumber. She must have fully recharged her batteries because upon awakening she waved at everything that was in front of her. P kept asking me if it was normal for a child her age to be so calm for such a long time. Beats me, but I’m not complaining.
The parade lasted ninety minutes and we did not hear a sound from Baby S. By that time it was 47 degrees and we were glad that she was bundled up. We were able to make a quick getaway, since P is very familiar with the area. It was not until we were in the van that Baby S finally said something. A very loud “YEAH,” her favorite word lately (not a clue where that comes from). We picked up dinner, came home and Baby S released all her pent up energy. She was all over the place, even walking in that awfully restricting outfit.
Once we liberated her from the pram she did her impersonation of Tigger on crack. We arrived home before 8:00 p.m. and Baby S did not fall asleep until 10:30 p.m. She was nonstop the entire time, practicing for her debut as a hockey player. Lately, she’s been getting a kick out of body slamming. Baby S just runs full force into whatever, my knee, P’s leg, her rocking chair, the chaise… P says that she is perfecting her body checking because she is going to be an enforcer. We are worried that she is going to end up hurting herself. Thankfully 48 Hours Mystery bored the daylights out of her.
Tomorrow we steam clean the upstairs carpet, get the tree, decorate the tree and the house and do some shopping. More important, tomorrow is Family Day, five months since Baby S joined our family. Weird, because it seems like she has been with us forever.
