I have spent the last few days in Atlanta. With Bella. Can you tell?!! Although she was the highlight of the trip, it was also great to see her parents. Always great to see them. To sit down and talk face to face with the folks that (at least in adulthood) have known me the longest and best. There’s something really comforting about that. Other things may change and shift, but these guys have been with me for the long haul. Through the really nitty gritty. I can count on Z to wear black or tie-dye and call it like he sees it and I can count on T to cook me my favorite things (pesto, yum!) and somehow always get the wild places I’m occasionally coming from. Those are hardly small things.
As Bella enters month three, I’ve picked up on a few changes. The most obvious, is that she’s a tad smellier than she used to be. Her Dad doesn’t call her “smelly belly” for nothing. 😉 She is also looking more like a person and less like an infant. Her face is really expressive and you can already start to see a bit of her personality in it. It is also true that the girl has some big feet. Long and narrow. If she were a puppy, that would indicate that she will be a big dog. Not sure what big feet means for a baby, although I would imagine it’s similar. She also likes to keep the feet moving. Lots of kicking around and pretty strong kicking from a person that weighs less than Gadget. Toad has got an eye on the running potential of those little legs. Watch out Bella….
