This has been a week of exploration and cute faces.
I got out Brooklyn's Boppy that she never liked to see if it would go over better with Tobin. He actually enjoys laying on it, attempting to crawl over or skootch out of it - until Brooklyn tries to "rescue" him by pulling him off of it backwards, mistaking his little grunts of effort for a distress signal and causing him to hang on and make genuinely distressed noises.
Brooklyn has been practicing Being a Person by sitting in chairs, counting her way up the stairs (she tends to count "1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11" but we're getting there), and taking good care of her doll, my old panda, and a couple of monkeys by making sure they are spoon-fed and get plenty to "drink".
After having lived here for over a year, I finally got around to putting our main bathroom together (it's been reserved for baths, so I hadn't bothered with a shower curtain) and (more excitingly!) got a library card. The latter was celebrated by hunting down the nearest library, located conveniently close to our favorite park. Brooklyn made a beeline for a display of picture books about bunnies, and we sat in the floor and read them one by one. It will be a good place to go this summer, I think.
So much change - inside our home, and outdoors, as well! I wonder what adventures this week holds?
