We let Teagan watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer last week, and she loved it. Asked LaLa to sing the song to her at bedtime, asked us to join in with her as she did a pretty good job, after only hearing it a few times. Well, over this past week, she’s gotten much better! So glad I was able to talk her into singing a version that we could tape.
She’s been surprising me again and again with how much music she knows, how many lyrics she remembers. Or thinks she remembers. Walking through Target over the weekend, I told my mom that something was crazy! Teagan replied, “call me baby!” I had no idea she had heard the song, we try so hard to shield her from the horrors of the world. What’s more, a female shopper heard her, and laughed. So Teagan sang the whole thing again. It was fun ;D
She got to go swimming Sunday, and she totally rocked the pool. According to Stu, I haven’t seen her swim yet (sniff), she jumped right in, and was off. She refused to have Stu hold her or anything, she wanted to go on her own. If you didn’t say anything, she was breathing through her nose, naturally. Stu said that when he mentioned how good that was, she breathed in a big bit of water. Still. So proud of her. Next week, I’m going to figure out how to get to the pool to see her.
She’s getting so big.
PS. I finally found the yarn I ran out of, so can finish the last Christmas present.
PPS. Ashlin has slept through the alarm for three days. We’ve only needed to wake her once, she’s gotten up herself the other two times, but it’s something! It’s better than last week!
