it never ceases to amaze me, how quickly babies grow and change and grow some more;
how different you are from just a few short weeks ago!
you are rounding out and fattening up, and all that dark hair you showed up with a few short months ago is disappearing,
being replaced by that beautiful blond Covey boy hair that your brother has made so famous.
your cheeks are full and tremendously kissable, as are your knees and toes,
your tummy, fingers and nose....
your smiles are bigger, giggles last longer and squeals are much louder these days,
and you interact so much more with the world around you.
you love lying on the bed while your brother bounces up and down around you,
and though i'm scared he's going to land on you, when it does happen it's not like it's going to be the last time anyways...
so bounce away jake, just watch out for your little brother okay? always?
some days we have it all figured out, you and i and jakey.
then there's those days, the other days, when the figurative shit hits the fan, the real shit hits everything,
and everybody (including myself) cries at the same time.
but then you smile your oh-so-sweet smile, your brother returns once again to his sublimely snuggly self,
and i fall in love all over again....
Me: "Hey do you want to go outside or what?"
After Jake lets out a bunch of farts:
Me: "Was that you farting?"
Jake: "Maybe a little bit mommy, a little tiny bit."
Dr. Nails still hung up on the unicorn thing:
"I can't believe people don't believe there were unicorns, what the hell do they think a narwhale is?!
Yeah, there's giant fish with a horn but it's impossible for horses to have them? Come on!"
Jake after soaking his pants, socks and even filling his rain boots with pee:
"I pee outside like Hannah!!"
We were on our way home speeding along at about 80kph
Dr. Nails while driving, both hands on the wheel and wearing sunglasses: "Look at that!"
Me frantically looking left then right then back again: "Where? What?"
Dr: "Man you're bad at that, you should practise."
J: "I need wash my hands"
J: "I hab pee on dem."
of course. why else?
After a day of botched conversations between myself and the dear Dr:
Dr Nails: "communication between us it at an all-time low."
In order to avoid any more confusion I simply nodded my agreement.
Unfortunately he wasn't looking at me....
But hey, here's looking at you : )
