Did you ever see the movie Parenthood? Well, our little E is the kid running around with a bucket on his head. She is quirky. Her latest move is a head stand. I don't know if she enjoys it because she can effortlessly fold in half or because she likes checking out her "cankles". She held this pose for a good 10 minutes in bed last night. Baby Yoga- she needs to center herself before she sleeps!
A day in the life of E... well, it all started this morning with a pair of dad's swim goggles and mom's reading flashlight (yes, I know they have invented reading lamps). Who would have known that such a combination would help E channel Elvis. With music blasting, E had the hip swivel and the attitude. She was in the zone. A legend in her own mind. As her personal paparazzi, I snapped a picture of her doing the 'King's' signature sign off "Uh, Thank you very much".
Onto the next activity, sampling toothbrushes. With her new found mobility and elevation, E has discovered bathroom drawers. Her favorite one, the toothbrush & toothpaste drawer. She does not discriminate. She will suck on every toothbrush for a few minutes, take it on a walk around the house, and abandon it in a random location. It adds a little excitement to our bedtime routine.
Feeling freshly groomed, time for a snack. As the benefactor of G-bean's soft food diet, E was introduced to pudding. What better way to eat pudding than in the buff. Armed with spoon and bowl, E attempted to feed herself. A new skill she's hoping to add to her arsenal of tricks. We all know how it ends...pudding everywhere. Well our newly dubbed 'pudding painter' was thorough in her work AND thoroughly entertained (for an hour-woohoo!).
The rest of the day was filled with baths, naps, popsicles, and a lot of other kooky things I can't remember... unless I look at my shirt, because I usually end up wearing my day. A smudge of this, shmear of that... All good clean fun!
