A reader’s question posted as Anonymous reminded me that I didn’t post anything about our dinner with Michelle and her parents!
It had been a few months since I had seen her – time passes quickly for me, but BOY has she grown!
Look at this adorable face!
She’s got the world on a string ---and she’s wrapped herself around everyone’s fingers.
Not only that --- she doesn’t just walk – this girl RUNS!
We could hardly get her to stand still enough to take a photo…I had to catch her mid-motion-blur!
Hold Still, Michelle, smile at me, let me take your picture!
Zoom zoom, NO WAY!!
Not only is Michelle quite the character, but she is Mama’s side-kick, always busy and into everything as most one year olds are.
She loves to dance with her “Ba-Ba” ((Daddy)) too!
((Ya’ll, are you catching that batik skirt fashion statement? She’s got it rockin!))
She wasn’t all too fired up about me holding her – she wanted DOWN and to go play --- NOW!
But the funniest of all --- this is what happens any time DH picks her up:
SHE HOWLS! LOL!!!!
I don’t blame you, Michelle, he scares me sometimes too…LOL!
And for the commenter who asked….I’m happy to say that when Michael and Harriet moved to a new rental house a few months ago – Michelle got her own room, and has slept through the night since! A change of venue, a new routine, a room to herself – and she is out for the count, which makes for some very happy parents. I hope their move to Texas goes smoothly and they settle right in again into their new digs.
We will definitely miss you, our friends, the Gutoh Family!
