Rosemary has started babbling “mamamamamamamamamama” in earnest these days. I can’t decide if she knows what that means and is trying to get my attention/express her love or if she just enjoys hearing the sound of her own voice (I wonder where she would get that from?) Still, it is sweet music to a mama’s ears to hear that coming out of her baby’s mouth.
There is a lot of big love going on at the Graysmith house these days. Atticus is enamored of his little sister and enjoys nothing more than giving her the biggest hugs possible. Of course, being three times her weight, and not terribly aware of where his body is or what it is doing with regard to others means a lot of intervention on the part of the parental units. “Not around the head” is a phrase that is used with alarming frequency. Atticus is also very concerned about Rosemary’s teething pain and tries to help her out by letting her use his fingers as a teething ring. This would be is sweet, especially when his hands are actually clean and not caked in dirt/food/who knows what, as they are around 90% of the time.
