Update on the daughter and the garden…

Update on little m. Still under 20 lbs, a wild little ball of energy, m is getting very talkative. Her longest sentence so far: “m– love watch ELMO!” She loves Sesame Street, and can name many of the characters. My mom taped some episodes for her, which she watches over and over – allowing her to really pick up certain songs and words. She now counts: one, two, six, se-nen, eight, nine, TEN, ‘leven, fourteen, sixteen, eighteen!
I sometimes take her downstairs to visit her great grandma. Last time, my Pau-Pau asked her, “You want apple?” Mia said, “Ba-nana!” and went over to the bananas to point to the one she wanted.
She loves stringed instruments, so we purchased her a cheap ukulele. She drags it around the house, and will often sing while strumming it. She invites me to join her little band, saying, “Mommy, drum-a?” I am amazed that she will soon be two. What a sweet, sweet season. She is growing so quickly…
Speaking of growing so quickly, here is some news of the garden. Went down today for a little weeding, and saw that there is actually broccoli is growing! I could not believe it! Check it out:
So THAT’S what broccoli looks like connected to a plant! Amazing that what started as a tiny seed is now thriving! Makes me think about what it means to sow seeds in every aspect of my life.
