I was having dinner with an old friend and her husband last night and she proceeded to lecture me on the need to update my blog more frequently. She also commented on just how cute Li Li was, so I’ll forgive her. In my previous entry I talked about the picture that Catherine printed out with her and Li Li, so here it is.
I am afraid we have a future gymnast or daredevil on our hands. Li Li absolutely loves fresh air rushing on her face – whether it’s swinging on a swing or being tossed in the air. We’ll see what happens but given my past proclivities for thrill seeking and the resulting emergency room visits I’m probably due for some of the heartaches I caused my mom.
I was in the ER so often the nurses knew my mother by name and my first visit to the ER was sometime around Li Li’s age. I’m told I decided I wanted to get off the bicycle my mom was riding – so I unbuckled the safety belt on my child seat and jumped — oblivious to the fact that my mom was going about 15 miles an hour. My mom turned around to see a very bloody face, a bleeding tongue and lots of road rash. She also found out they didn’t typically stitch tongues back then. Hopefully I won’t find out what they do for cut tongues now adays.
Anyway, as much as our daughter is thrill seeker she can also play quietly. Here she is enjoying the charms of filling a bucket with sand.
That’s all for now. -t
