Update on The Girls – 2012 – #7: Purple Flags and Sugar Cereals

Some more cute antics from our adorable little tykes…

C – is starting to eat more solid foods. She loves cheese and Kix cereal. Yesterday, we bought a box of Kix for her at Wal-Mart; it was the first box of cereal that we had ever bought with her in mind.

We have started to hear the development of her speech and it’s very exciting. She imitates us with a lot of grunts & says “oh-oh” when things go wrong. But she is saying more words all of the time. She was on our front porch with her mom, while Mom adjusted our purple Mardi Gras flag. Mom told C that the flag is purple and C said “purple.”

One final note is that C is going through the “fighting sleep” phase in a big way. She never goes down for a nap or for the night without a major struggle.

E – is in a phase of hanging on to things. She loves to hang on to the table, our easy chair, and C’s crib. Of course, Mom and I are concerned that she will hurt herself.

Just like her sister, she loves to mention colors. E thumbs through her Mom’s exercise magazines and looks at the models’ fingernails and clothes. Then, she’ll say “pink fingernails,” “black fingernails,” “red top,” “blue pants,” etc. I suppose she is “all girl.”

E really notices other kids now, especially other girls. There was a girl in Wal-Mart yesterday, about four, and E just kept staring at her. The little girl looked back at E, but both were too shy to say anything. E also notices kids and toys; there are two little girls who ride scooters around our neighborhood and that is fascinating. Also, there are some pink “vehicles” in a neighbor’s yard and those always catch her eye, too.

For a limited time, the Captain Crunch people (better known as PepsiCo) are making their cereal with only crunchberries. We made the mistake of buying some and E is completely obsessed with it. We’re dreading the day when it’s no longer available. It will be a sad (loud) day at our house.

We saw a woman in Wal-Mart yesterday. She had three kids with her, but not other adults. The oldest kid was about four and the youngest was an infant. Oh, I feel for her!

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
