talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

All she wants for Valentine's Day is...

We have been reading and listening to Roald Dahl to get ready for a theater presentation we'll attend in February. We'll see James and the Giant Peach. Tonight, our family snuggled in to enjoy the first installment of Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory, our first feature film together as a family.

Somewhere during our thirty-or-so minutes of viewing, Fiona was resettling herself in the chair with Nora when she bopped her knee into her mouth, further loosening that tooth that has been working its way out since Christmastime. I missed some of the action because our neighbors had called, but Ian, Fiona, and Nora went upstairs to see if it was ready to come out. The general verdict was 'No.'

Fifteen minutes or so past lights out, Fiona reappeared on the stairs stating that her tongue absolutely could not leave the tooth alone, so the two of us retreated to the bathroom to assess matters. Five minutes later, voila! Her face met mine with a big, gummy smile as she held her tooth in her hand.
