Children wearing long sleeves and cooped up inside watching TV. It has been nonstop rainy and gloomy. And, frankly, I am sick of it. When I told myself all winter it was okay for Becca to watch TV, I rationalized it with the fact that she'd be outside! All summer! She had swim lessons yesterday in the rain and a temperature of 60 degrees. Her lips were blue and she was shivering. And, being clueless about summers where you need long sleeves, I only had a short sleeve cover up to dress her in afterwards. So I ran the blow drier over her entire self in the locker room before we left.
In other news, Andrew is cruising for multiple bruisings. He climbed up the entire staircase yesterday (I was right behind him). He pulls up on everything (he loves the dishwasher) and was pushing his toy piano across the floor this morning, walking behind it. But, he still isn't babbling, which has me kind of stressed out. Becca had two words by the time she was 10 months old. This kid hasn't so much as said mama or dada or gaga yet. I have heard a couple consonants, but they are very rare. He says "aaah" and "ehhh" and "mmmm" but that's about it. Right now he's saying "WWWWWWWWWWWWWAH!" Guess it is nap time.
