Hugging May May

Last night on the couch:
“Are you excited for your baby sister Vera?”
“Can you point to your baby Sister?”
She points to Mom’s belly.
“Do you want to give her a hug?”

Hugs Mom’s belly.


Vera is a great share-er. When she and Griff have snacks, she gets out two bowls from the kids-dishes-drawer (the lowest one) in the kitchen – one for her, one for him.  Yesterday I was sitting on the couch and she offered me some of her Pirate’s Booty in exchange for some of my pita chips. 


I got a FitBit as part of a walking challenge at work.  It’s a wristband that lights up some of its five lights when you tap it twice so you can tell how far you’ve progressed towards your daily goal.  

Guess who loves to tap the FitBit?  Yup, both of our kids.

And when she wants to tap it, Vera says “BipBipBipBipBip…” until I give in.  Sometimes I ask her to say please.  Sometimes I forget and just let her tap away cause its so freakin’ cute.

I Love You

Vera says this now.  Usually not with the “I” – but she has said the three word phrase:  “Love you Gug-guh” (Guh-guh is what she calls Griffin, also Chinese for “older brother”).  She did it the other night and it was just ridiculously cute.  Usually its just two words:  "Luv - ooo".
