After lunch, we were off to the Bug's gymnastics class. Since we arrived a bit early, she got out of her car seat and came back to sit by me (buckled in like a big girl, of course) as we waited. Before leaving home, I had wanted to get as many pictures as possible of and with these girls, but this was rendered rather impossible when, a week before I came, my camera died. *moment of silence* Fortunately, Papa brought his, and since he and Grandma hardly use it any more now that they have their o-so-cool iPhones (can you believe that? My grandparents have iPhones), I am able to keep it by me always. All that to say, naturally, the first thing we did was snap a couple pictures. Caleigh always votes to do a goofy one. No surprises there.
|blurry, but real :p|
Then it was time for more serious things, like having Caleigh show and explain to me everything in her purse...
Yeah, we have snow on the ground and a howling, biting wind, and the Caleigh-Bug is hot. Go figure. :)
After shopping and getting home, Caleigh was left in front of a tv show (more on that later) while I went to practice my violin. That didn't last long. Soon, she was in my room, on my bed, playing with my little teaching helpers (Cocoa & friends), bouncy balls, and other random things to be found in my case; there she stayed for nearly an hour, happy as anything. (No pictures of that, since I was...you know...actually doing something).
Dinner came and went, and Caleigh was again on my bed, being amused by pictures on my blog. Once she saw the Three Little Pigs video, though, she was hooked. Patiently, she waited while I finished up a couple things, ("patiently" meaning, "wiggling around, playing with things on my bed, and begging to take a few more pictures") and finally, after getting ready for bed, we snuggled up on the couch and sat giggling up a storm over 3 or 4 Disney "Three Little Pigs" clips until bedtime. As I turned on her CD and called one last goodnight, she called out to me "I love you, cousin Sarah!"
I'm lovin' this time spent with my Caleigh-Bug. :)
