Oliver is now 11 months old and this week started pulling himself up in the crib. His scoot has become really fast and expert and now sometimes involves getting up on his hands and knees to have a good look at something. He is quite hilarious. He still has just the 2 bottom teeth but I can see the top ones are really close now.
Marshall has become very keen on Star Wars since we watched the first one last week. Rick bought the set and we’re watching them in order that they were released, so I guess that means Episode 4 was the first one we watched. He has a yoda hat and had no idea who Yoda was until this minute but has been wearing his Yoda toque whenever possible since we found it on sale at the GAP. This week he made a book about Star Wars with a picture and titles for all the characters that he knows so far. He is now officially a Star Wars fan.
To top that off, I asked if he would like to go see the Sound of Music with me this weekend since Riverview High School is presenting it and it’s only $12 a ticket. He looked at me blankly. So I started doing a couple of the songs we used to sing together… when he was only 2. Doe a Deer…. blank stare. Remember the puppet show? yodelahee yodelayee yoelayhee-hoo! And I got the funniest look. Kind of an embarassed still-don’t-know-what-you’re-talking-about look with an eyeroll followed by an “okaaaaaaaaaay?”
I laughed so hard. It’s happening. At least in that moment: turning into my mother!
