singing to her, kissing and hugging her, and helping them take care of her. She weighed 9lbs 2oz and was 21inches long when I first met her at the hospital. She has really tiny hands and feet and blue eyes. She’s nearly 6 weeks old already and has already gotten bigger. I think it’s because she eats and sleeps so much.
I’m back in swim lessons now. I can swim really good but have forgotten how to float; the PUs tell me I can have more fun at the pool if I get my float back but I love the pool so much already that it’s hard to imagine having even more fun there.
We’ve had a lot of visitors, too. Nona, Grandpa Mike, and Aunty Niki all came for Daddy’s graduation. Everyone sure seemed to think it was a big deal – Daddy even had to wear a special green nightgown with a funny hat. Everyone else was wearing them, too, though so he was hard to find in the crowd. Anyway, now Daddy is officially a historian. Or something like that. Nona and Grandpa Mike stayed till after Naelahl was born so that they could keep me company while Mommy and Daddy were in the hospital.
I’ve learned to count and I can nearly sing the entire ABCs by myself – though I prefer Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I sing both to Naelahl when she’s being changed; she seems to like them.
I met a new PU called Aunty Martha. She lives with Gramma Grace and I love going to her house. She has a fish that hides and we catch geckos, feed birds, count stairs, and have a great time. I can’t wait to go back.
I also got to spend a lot of time with my friends and neighbors. They are a great bunch; we had a big birthday party for one of my friends and then there was a block party and then my birthday party.Nona, Mommy, Daddy, Naelahl and I went to the Bishop Museum and we saw lots of big dinosaurs that moved their heads, tails, mouths, and teeth. They were really scary; fortunately, I clung to Daddy and Mommy to keep them from biting me. After a while though, I realized they hadn’t bitten anyone, so then I took Nona back so that I could show them all to her. I liked them when I left and still talk about them a lot. Mommy, Daddy, Naelahl and I just went back the other day and I was still scared at first but after a while I was pulling Mommy around wanting to see the "big dinosaur" (T-rex,) the "mommy dinosaur" (apotosaurus/brontosaurus -like sizemasaurus.) Mommy even taught me to say triceratops.
