Update: I have completed the Twilight series and must admit that all of you who told me how good they were, are not, after all, crazy. I didn't want it to end but couldn't stop reading! Anyway, I'm on the bandwagon waiting for the next one to come out. I need more good novels in my life- I haven't enjoyed a story like that in a long time and considering the ones that got my attention were teenage vampire stories... well, yes, I need good reading suggestions. I am a few pages into "the host," which I am approaching skeptically, but I'll give it a chance... who knew I'd be into wearwolves?! (oh, and I am. jacob, my jacob...)
Other meandering thoughts... it's cloudy outside right now and I love that. I think the overcast sky is to receive credit for extra-long naps in my house. And it feels cozy. We need a good storm. Everytime I wish for a great rainstorm I think of emily in portland who can't escape the rain and wish that we could combine our climates to make the perfect one, but I suppose mine is perfect for me right now.
Seneca has started taking her first little shakey steps and it is pretty fun. It's fun to encourage her and have her little face beam with pride. It's also fun to have Cooper get so excited for her. While I'm rambling about Senny, her hair, which is gorgeous, don't get me wrong... is totally bugging me. It's in her face all the time and that is a big problem for me. It's uneven in back and shaggy looking and while she's still the prettiest thing I've ever seen, I really really really want to trim it. Well, not me, but it needs some attention. The trouble is that Navajo tradition suggests (strongly, apparantly) that if a baby's hair is cut before they speak their first words then the ability to speak at all is hindered. I know it's just a legend, but these traditions are kind of fun and denten will not have it any other way. So I need a temporary solution. I'm not a fancy, up-in-bows mother of girly girls, so please don't suggest something frilly. Some cute clips to keep it out of her face and some patience as she figures out what those much-anticipated real first words are going to be!
My boys are great, Cooper is loving the pool and looks forward to dad coming home every day for swim time. Beckham gets the pants scared off him every time I dunk him, but recovers so quickly we do it again. He is such a different baby than he was a few months ago. He's very content and smiley and very taken with his siblings. And he's got great kissable cheeks. And he's ticklish.
Alright, I'm rambling. It's been really mellow around here the past few weeks, which is nice I suppose. I feel a little sluggish, but down time has it's perks. This weekend will snap me out of it with tickets to the circus and an airplane trip with one mom and three children... it's gonna be great! for now, over and out.
