Meemaw’s 80th Birthday

We went up to Dallas this weekend for Daddy’s grandmother’s (Meemaw’s) 80th birthday celebration!  We had fun, ate waaaay too much cake, and even had a “mini date” while my parents watched Monkey so Daddy and I could go to the mall and play cards in the food court.  🙂

Monkey is really acting like she’s remembering grandparents and people from time to time when she sees them.  She starts singing every time she sees Papa Joe and laughs every time she sees her Uncle Jerd and I think my brother is starting to scare her.  She was fascinated with my dad’s oxygen machine, though (which we are calling his life support) and kept trying to eat the little cord.  We finally gave her a stethoscope and that seemed to satisfy her.

On Sunday we went to church with Daddy’s parents (which is about 18 hours away by car, or 55 minutes, I never can remember which) and he sang a sort of impromptu (decided to do it the day before) duet with his father.  It was really neat and I’m glad we got to go.  I loved the sermon the preacher gave and will be blogging about it later.  On the other hand, I am never leaving Monkey in that child care ever again.  (Always trust your gut, mamas!)

I think Monkey might be starting to get the concept of waving.  She’ll hold her hand up but she doesn’t quite move it yet so we’ll see if it develops into something or if it’s just a coincidence.  She does move her hands a lot.  🙂

Well, that’s it!  I think we’re all starting to feel a bit better (except for the hacking, uncontrollable, sleep depriving cough) so it looks like it might be business as usual for us from now on! Back to play groups! 🙂
