I wasn't sure I was going to do any more lady updates, (and I am a little late with this one that has been sitting in the drafts folder because she's coming up to 16 months). But here it is The Lady : The Toddler Series and a letter for an older Rose, if she's curious, about her foray into toddlerhood.
watching you do pretty much anything is still fascinating to me. the way a human body learns to coordinate itself is amazing. you strut your chubby legs forward in a robot-like motion, your pudgy fingers carefully pry apart a toy, or more often than not, something contraband like the tv remote.
outside, you peer at our pet guinea pigs in their hutch by leaning your body to the side and hardly bending your legs: an inquisitive little teapot.
you bang your crayons on the paper making lines and dots and swooshes.
once, your papa and I were upstairs getting ready for the day and you and your brothers were all downstairs. or so we thought.
we heard a rose-like-squeak nearby. someone had left the baby gate open at the bottom and you had climbed right to the top of the stairs (this was before the table climbing incident).
you wave to everyone, everywhere now, just as your brother used to do at the same age. this is a nice age actually. your cute babyness is still present but your toddler capacity to communicate and play is developing.
I will be absolutely treasuring these next few months before you're off and running for good.
you are determined and feisty and charming and sweet.
you are a joy. x
