I am almost positive that any day now Meg is going to stand up, smile, and run at top speed down the street. She is all about movement right now. Whether she is bouncing in her bouncer, or rolling around on the floor, or sitting up and throwing herself back, she is always on the move. She is always moving towards something, and it is usually something being kept out of reach for a reason. Yesterday? She broke my Dad's glasses. He says before he knew what was happening she had taken them off his face and snapped them in two. Luckily he's smitten with her, so he didn't mind wearing the old pair that practically render him blind.
Meg is a big talker too, with an ever growing repertoire or words. She can say dog, and mama, and hi, so far; and Ryan swears that one day she said her own name. She is also a big fan or clicking her tongue and sticking out her tongue, which crack her up to no end. I really worry that some day soon I will no longer be the funniest in the family. Well, at least I will still be the most sarcastic.
We are spending more time outside now as the weather warms, and Meg really seems to be a fan. She loves watching birds, and taking walks, wrinkles her nose when the wind blows on her, and is mesmerized by flowers. She has always been a very observant child, but there is something about nature that really seems to draw her in. Watching her I find myself believing in reincarnation, because he isn't just seeing the world, she's drinking it in, savoring it like a connoisseur. I just watch her in awe, feeling so lucky to have her in my life.
What a wonderful girl. Oh, how I love her.
