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.

This morning Nora and I were looking at the back of the Raisin Bran cereal box. There are people walking in a field in one picture, and a man running along the beach. I said, "Looks like the people at Raisin Bran want us to think that cereal helps us be active."

Nora focused on the back of the box for a moment, then said, "Is that how that guy can walk on top of the water? Can people really do that?" I looked. He was running on the beach where the water lapped up over his feet.

I tried explaining how the water comes in over the beach a couple different ways. She clearly was NOT getting it. The last time Ian and I were at a beach, it was in Galveston where we were visiting with toddler Fiona. Clearly, our Nora needs to see a beach in person. Below is the last time Fiona saw the beach.

Finding our stride

It's not that we've forgotten about blogging. Really! But with Fiona in traditional school, it just feels weird. A huge chunk of our time with Fiona has been given over to the school system. We miss her, and Nora and I are still figuring out what our rhythm is. I have a couple of back-posts yet to do, but I don't want this to turn into Nora's blog, which it easily could because she says more and more things that come straight from Nora and less from her best friend Fiona's influence.

We'll figure it out. Until then, we're working on finding our stride.
