I’m trying to get out more with you and am signing up for…well, just about everything. I discovered some fun “events” on meetup.com. The first one I went to was at a woman’s house. Honestly, this freaked me out at first. I knowingly entered a stranger’s house. This is not a normal concept. But, all is fair when trying to make new friends…right? So, hold that door open strange lady – i’m coming in! It was a lot of fun. There were 6 other moms and babies. We placed you all on a blanket in a circle. You seemed to enjoy being around all the other babies. AND, you reached/played with a toy for the first time. Oh you have no idea how exciting this was for me to witness. When we got home, I immediately took out all your toys. It was 110 degrees outside but it might as well have been snowing in our house – it was practically the holidays with all the toys spread out all over the room.
Yesterday was our first mommy and me class at Gymboree and I had THE.BEST.TIME.!.!.! You had a great time too! It was so adorable watching your eyes get bigger and bigger with each activity and song. Every once and a while a squeak and a smile would creep out – it took everything in me not to cry. You liked the songs, the bubbles, the parachute, but most of all “Gymbo” the puppet. Needless to say, I bought Gymbo. Also needless to say, Brownie is very fond of Gymbo as well.
