Has it really been 2 weeks since I last blogged?
I have a confession to make. I’ve been watching Season 7 and 8 of Law & Order SVU every night until very late. Don’t worry, I only have 4 more episodes left, then I’m all done…until Cliff downloads Season 9 for me.
So since I last blogged, Savanna has started crawling. I almost cried when she first started crawling last week. All I could think of is that she’s growing too fast. I know, I know. I’m totally hormonal. I have the I-don’t-want-my-baby-to-grow-too-fast syndrome. Savanna is also sprouting a third tooth. She’s also eating pieces of cooked carrots, chicken, pork, and plums.
Joshua’s growth doesn’t seem as obvious on the physical front, but his language development constantly amazes me. He’s now properly using the word “instead”. He also said to me the other day, “Don’t be such a bitch.” Yup, you read that right. He said that. I have no idea where he learned it from. I knew this day would come that he would say something that is not acceptable. To his credit, he used in the right context (after I told him “no” to something he really wanted). I kept my voice calm and gentle, and nonchalantly asked him where he heard that from. He didn’t tell me. He looked a little guilty. I think he knew I didn’t like it. I didn’t tell him not to use the B word again. I don’t want to make a big deal of it, since I doubt he knows what the word even means. We’ll see if he uses it again.
It’s a long weekend here in BC. Happy long weekend, everyone! I do have a couple of exciting things to blog about after the weekend.
