continuing on with the playing in the grass rant...i just love sitting in the grass feeling the warm sun on my shoulders and gasping as jane shows me another cool leaf she found. She picks things up and thrusts them high up in the air, as high as her little arms can reach, to show them to me. Even if i am sitting at her level. And then, she must show me everything else around us as well. She points at nothing, and everything.
Sometimes as she is exploring I will wave at her and I can watch the wheels turning in her brain. hmm, she waved at me. that means i should wave back. this includes flailing my hand in her general direction. NOW...where did my hands go again? oh! there! okay...here we go. And eventually, after going through all of that in her mind, she will wave back. Hence, the usual 10 second delay. HA.
Jane loves the pool. She loves the park. She loves dogs- always chasing after any dog she sees. She loves swings, and she loves crawling in the grass. She loves summer. And so do I.
