At eight months, Lil' D can win a crawling race, stand up and "cruise" around furniture. He is a pro at feeding himself finger foods and has exponentially increased his palate. He says "ma-ma" and "da-da" and knows which one of us he is talking to. He can wave and give kisses. He has three teeth, loves knocking down towers, cuddling, exploring, searching for hidden objects, reading books, and looking for Mommy in the kitchen.
One of the best things about weddings is all the dancing. I love watching all the cute kids dancing. My cousin's daughter L is 5 years old and a bundle of energy. She was all over the dance floor at the wedding, pulling anyone and everyone that was willing (or not so willing) with her.
L: "Spin me faster!"
Nicholas: "I can't spin you faster. We might run into someone."
L: "I DON'T CARE!!"
Me: "How do you want to dance?"
L: REALLY FAST!!
We spun around until I was about to lose my balance. When we stopped, she barely stumbled.
I like to take pictures. I like to read. I like to write. I like to make people laugh, and I aspire to leave my mark by fully documenting my life through scrapbooks, photo albums, journals, emails, and now this blog.
