Thank you Abuela and Abuelo.
JJ called out to me this morning, and said I needed to take a picture of SS sleeping. If free style sleeping was an Olympic sport, our daughter would be a gold medalist. SS had a difficult day, because JJ was not home when she woke up. She cried a lot, asking JJ to come back. We are really looking forward to having JJ home for six days. That will be the longest time SS has spent with her big brother. We know that she is going to love every minute of their time together. It would be a good idea for JJ to spend the next 12 days working of his sensitivity to strong odors. He is going to be doing a lot of diaper duty, and throwing up on SS is not acceptable. :)
I was taking off JJ's bed linens to launder, when SS left me speechless. She was upset that I removed his pillow case and clearly said, "Don't take it off Mama." It is obvious that SS speech is delayed, and that she is difficult to understand, even to us. She pronounced this so well that I just stood there staring at her. And as uptight as we can be, were are not worried about her language skills. We know that SS will probably not hit her speech stride until she is 5 and we are OK with that. It's the price we pay for doing things different.
