|She likes books and gets read to pretty much every day, but often she is just "read to" by virtue of sitting on my lap while I read to Mr. Lo. I have a goal to read to her individually as well, but those sessions usually turn into book EATING rather than READING.|
Poor neglected non-firstborn child. Miss Ro had her entire 6 month post get left out! But at least I took her to the doctor on schedule for her 6 month well-baby visit last month. Now don't ask me where I put those stats. All I recall is that she was something like 16-17 lbs. and in high percentiles for height/weight but she seems to have only moderate amounts of chub. Nothing excessive. :)
But I worry about this poor little Miss Ro. Her naps are often "on the run," in her carseat or stroller while I go places for her older sibling's benefit. She acts tired a lot. If only I could force my personality to match my circumstances. I don't think I was ever cut out to be any variation of a "single mom." It has been a game-changer sometimes when I can stay home with my napping baby while Jerry takes Mr. Lo to preschool. Those are great days. But they don't happen often. Anyway, here's a tribute to Ro Ro, the darling of the Tams. She gets doted on by all the neighborhood. They are Spanish-speaking people, and call her, "Bonita (Bonito?) and Gordita (isn't that a taco bell menu item?)...I know next-to-nothing in Spanish. But I love that these people love my baby. They all want to cuddle her and kiss her all day long. The kids knock on the door asking to play with Mr. Lo, but really they just want an excuse to get to see the baby.
