Aunt Power

Last week, Talvi had major auntie time. Besides her normal doses of Tia Loli and Aunt Jenny (plus extra for Jenny’s birthday) she met her Great Aunt Bird. Bird came out from Seattle to spend a week in Brooklyn with the Tiny T and her cousin-to-be. Also, their parents. A little. We skipped the normal tourist stuff and did things Talvi likes, such as activity mat time and bath time and rolling over. Talvi was very taken with Bird, especially when Bird would shake her hair all around Talvi’s face. I have been trying to recreate the move, and the happy reaction, but my short do is somewhat limiting. We took a trip to Anthropologie to visit Tia Loli, and Auntie Bird entertained Tiny T by traipsing her about the dressing room and introducing her to many adoring fans in the store so I could actually try on some clothes. I bought pants, so it was a big day for me! After the big rollover, Bird bestowed a new nickname on the baby, and a theme song: Roly Poly! (If you, like me, are the wrong generation, it’s a Doris Day song from Pillow Talk.) On Friday night, Bird, along with Dalen and Kevin, watched Talvi so Daniel and I could go out to a grown-up dinner. It was such a treat, though we were home by 9:30. The underlying tiredness was mightier than the excitement of uninterrupted conversation. It was a great week of auntie love for my chubby, mobile little Roly Poly!

    That is one adorable baby! Rollover made me smile. Still smiling, in fact. Lucky girl to have such attentive parents.
