My smart and sweet girl, this week:
-- You discovered that your new favorite word is "gusto."
-- You made a plethora of Valentines with a deft hand and a storm of red glitter. You continue to impress me with your creativity and focus while completing projects.
-- Your favorite story (redux) was Stuart Little. Favorite song, Suzanne by Leonard Cohen.
-- You insisted on tasting sriracha. You were not a fan. But you do love sweet potato kale tacos.
-- You danced with your little cousin Penelope. It was the sweetest thing ever.
This week, Noodlebug:
-- Your new-found independence retracted slightly and you wanted to be held, rocked, snuggled, worn by either mama or daddy a lot. The push-me-pull-you of toddlerhood.
-- Your favorite story (by far) lately is We're Going on a Bear Hunt. You almost have it memorized, clever baby. Favorite song, The North Wind Doth Blow.
-- You got a "boo boo" by clunking into the table but you wore your shiner with pride. You are a tough bug.
-- You continue to smoosh food in your hair at almost every meal, so your new hairstyle is a "top knot" and your head tends to smell like sunflower butter or tomato sauce or banana or cheese. I will probably tease you about this someday.
-- You climb onto the stool in the bathroom to "washa hands" several times a day. It's really cute.
