I miss blogging! I don't know who reads this but I miss writing. I'm still oddly sick (today they gave me a cat-scan which I've never heard of for a cold. The doctor thinks I have sinus issues and so I am seeing a specialist in 2 wks and he wanted the test. This is all so weird to me!) Anyhow I am doing substantially better and so I'm looking better at life!
So what has been missed? Well like I mentioned this week I almost missed Harm's birthday but it was still a great day. I will upload the pictures next week. His birthday party is going to go and be on February 5th. I mentioned Dion's Pizza and Chris got overjoyed becuase that is his favorite place and it won't have the distractions like Peter Piper would for him. He is so funny and sweet. He tells me and others "I want to make Mommy sooo happy!" and when he is frustrated he says "Oh bother". Dad's favorite saying is "yeah sure" when you ask him to do something and Gualita's favorite saying is "Oh man" when something goes wrong.
Callum is doing so well. He is soooo close to walking! He still likes to chill but he is getting feistier. He is realizing that he is bigger than Rachel and doesn't let her boss him around any more. He loves stealing Harm's grapes and tearing up Harm's train set. I think he loves our nanny Miriam more than Chris and I sometimes. He gets frustrated with us and he tries to claw our face but for her he just smiles and does whatever she needs him to do. Oh bother! Seriously he is such a sweetie pie and I know he loves us. We love hearing him sing. He can't speak but he sings songs going "ba ba ba ba" coordinated to music. He does complex melodies like Twinkle Twinkle. It really is amazing.
Rachel is such the princess. I could look at her for hours she is just so stinking cute. Her and I play for long spans of time on the couch just tickling and smiling at one another. She is my little buddy and follows me everywhere. This morning I was getting her ready for the day and her hair was still wet so I was waiting to put her bow on. That wasn't cool for her... she went and grabbed it and gave it to me. She hates to be w/o her bows these days. Her favorite Christmas gift was her little baby Cinderella doll. I'm proud! I want a girlie-girl. Rachel loves gymnastics (see above picture). She can already hold her own on a trampoline and is determined to conquer a balanced beam. Pretty amazing in my book if you consider she has hypertonia and was facing surgery. She always beats expectations. She still is pacifier and blankie addicted... just like baby Maggie from the Simpsons!
