Letter to Muffin Man (May 6 2002 - 13 weeks, 3 days)

You slept through the night 4 out of the last 6 nights - three of them were in a row!

Your favorite toy is a "Pentapus" - a 5 legged octopus that hangs on your Gymini. You grab it with both hands - a new skill. You used to flail wildly, then you batted at the pentapus purposefully, then you tried to grab it with one hand while the other flailed wildly. Once you've grabbed a leg or two in each hand, you shove its feet in your mouth. You talk to it, too. I don't know what you're saying, but you do find a lot to talk about. You also talk to the mobile above your crib.

You've really started talking to Daddy and me and we talk back, but it's pretty clear we're not talking about the same things yet.

You're starting to get ticklish and it's getting warm enough now that you are enjoying wearing only your diaper. Yesterday, I left you in just a diaper for about an hour and you wriggled a lot - feeling your play mat under your skin.

Maybe tonight you'll make it 5 out of 7!

Love,

Mommy

Love the idea of writing notes to your kid during a staff meeting.
