Athena saw an old picture of herself carrying a doll in a little mock snugli carrier today. We no longer have the carrier and she really was upset by that.
Tonight in the bath she said, "Yeah, I think I need another one of those baby carriers. The one like the ergo." I said, "Well, we gave that one away because you already have enough carriers." Then she responded, "I don't really have enough, just one Maya Wrap and one sling. I don't have ANY like the ergo."
It cracked me up because she is just as much of a collector as me. Anyway, I just thought it was cute.
Oh, and Rowan can wave bye bye now, I am a very proud mama. Athena didn't wave goodbye until she was 11 months old. She was too cool for it. I remember being at the park playgroup and saying to the other moms, "yeah, she doesn't wave yet," and she looked right at me with an annoyed look on her face and waved. She was like, "Duh mom, FINE, OK, I'LL WAVE".
