Sorry for the dead time between posts--- I've had several projects I've been working on for friends and a big one of my own that I've undertaken, so I've really had to squeeze out the spare time from each day. This is compounded, of course, by the fact that Lucy is talking a blue streak, from the moment she wakes up to the time she finally falls asleep. It's exhausting, but also amazing--- the funniest parts are when she quotes movies she's watched in the right context. The other day, I asked her, "How are you?" And she replied, word for word, "She froze my heart, and the only thing that can save me is an act of true love." Another time, we were out walking, and we were going down an unfamiliar road, and she said, "Oh, Pongo, Pongo, I'm afraid we're lost."
The fun thing is that she helps to occupy Amelia, who loves to listen to her and watch her. There will be whole stretches of time where they'll sit facing each other, just giggling nonstop. Hopefully this bodes well for the future.
