The next movie line up for consideration is:
"I'll make you famous."
Good luck to all.
Sproutie has become quite mobile these days. He isn't actually crawling yet, he moves more like the kind of thing you see on military obstacle courses where they have to maneuver on their tummies under the low wires. And boy is he fast! He is a very very busy boy. I know that this one is going to give me a run for my money. Just look at that twinkle in his eyes: Notice he is buckled in to the papasan chair. If he wasn't, he'd be all over the place. I never had to buckle Girlie or ZimDee down. They would just sit there and play and the thought of escape never even crossed their minds. But not my Sproutie. He's a busy one. As he gets older, I have the feeling that there will never be a dull moment here in this house.
Zim has been talking, talking, talking, saying funny new things every day. His new thing is to come up to me and put his hand on my face and say, "Mom, you be all right." He keeps up a running commentary when he plays his preschool games on the computer. I'm not sure whether he's looking for a response or not. It's like: "oh yook mom, dat cool, oh wuvitoo mom, zimmy wuvs mommy so much, hi mom, you ok, zimmy wuv mommy" and I'm like "oh, yes, zim, that is cool, I love you too, oh yes, mommy loves zimmy" and that's our day. All day.
Girlie has started indoor soccer and it looks like she's going to have a pretty good season. It's fun to watch her play, or rather try to, as the Count and I shuffle wiggly boys back and forth between us. I remember the days when I used to be able to knit at her soccer games. Not anymore. Maybe someday in the future I will again. I will bring my knitting to the games and look at the parents of small children being used as human jungle gyms by their toddlers and giggle inside remembering the days when that was me. As in today.
You know I love (almost) every minute of it too.
