Everything with you just seems to be getting better and better. You still don't have many words, despite our constant prodding and repeating and telling you to "use your words". It's pretty funny when you stare at us with the most stubborn look as if to say, I will talk when I'm ready people. I communicate just fine. And you do. You have about 5 words that we can decipher, the rest is pointing and grunting and babbling, or taking our hands to show us. I've decided to chill out on my approach and stop constantly trying to make you say a word. It doesn't work anyhow. Besides, you're on your own schedule, baby, and you are doing just great. You sometimes scare your daddy and I with your intelligence. We're already at the point of spelling certain names and words so that you don't hear them and have it completely ruin your moment/day. You don't miss a thing. Today at library class when the teacher passed around a puppet and let each child give it a quick hug, at your turn you grabbed it, turned it over and over until you found the hole that the teacher put her hand in so that you could do it the same way. You know, figure out how it works. You had no interest in hugging it and I had to interrupt you so that we could move on to another kid. You are intense.
This last year and a half has been a blink. I love that you are my baby. Our days consist of the constant privilege of figuring you out. I need to thank you for being such a beautiful and perfect addition to our family. Sammy wouldn't know what to do if you suddenly weren't around to play chase and rub his head and ears. You are so gentle with him, Pookie. And June has started coming around, believe it or not! It was just a matter of time.
I love you Vivi, with all my heart, to the moon and back.
* Vivi is wearing: dress from Mini Rodini. I'm starting a new addition to the blog, if I think Vivi is in something cute that I should share, then I'll post what it is and where to find it (if I can). This may help some of the "Where did you get that?" questions!
