What is this? I've lost two cups of coffee this morning. I keep putting them down someplace and forgetting where they are.
Anja must be watching us constantly and taking in everything we do. She figures out things that I never would have expected her to even notice. For instance: keys. We used to have a working key fob on our keychain and last winter when we were driving more, I would hold up the keys by the window to start the car. Since then, whenever she finds a set of keys, she holds them up in the air. Then the other day she found my keys and immediately went to the filing cabinet and tried to put the keys into the lock. She spent SO MUCH TIME doing this. And I'm not sure how she figured out the connection between keys and the filing cabinet lock that doesn't even really look like a lock. Yesterday she was showing the same interest, so I fished out the real key to the filing cabinet and put it on my keychain. She's been working and working since yesterday and she often gets the key in and is so proud of herself! Then she'll pull it out and do it again. It's so funny!
The other morning Martin was doing push-ups on the kitchen floor and Anja got down on her belly and started doing them too! Later in the day I asked her if she could do pushups like daddy, and she did it! It was so cute.
Yesterday she was singing, and for the first time I recognized it as really singing. We got out my guitar and she sang with me, then later she wanted something and I told her I'd get it for her if she sang me a song. She grinned and sang a little song for me, then immediately went back for what she'd asked for.
She also is good to tell me when she needs a new diaper.
Meanwhile, Greta reeeaaallly wants to roll over. She isn't that close, but she tries constantly. Today it's finally not raining so I think we'll take a really long walk. And maybe we'll bump into the cousins someplace along the way!
Speaking of cousins, I was on a walk with the girls sometime last week and I randomly bumped into my cousin who lives in San Francisco. I didn't know she was in town, and she was the absolute last person I expected to see in the middle of the day over by pottery painting store. Weird!
