Tonight I cooked dinner while Ko was playing with the baby and then after dinner, I went to Starbucks to “finish” an essay. By the time I came home the baby was already asleep and Ko was still putting the dishes away. We had a few minutes to talk about the last few weeks, which have been both exhilarating and exhausting.
It might be that baby’s ability to communicate has grown so much lately that we are getting a more accurate view of the rate of her development, but it still feels like things are accelerating. Recently she has been playing with her stuffed animals more. Today Ko saw her making her little bear walk and was even making a silly sound to give walking bear a sound track. It leaves me breathless.
