Naturally today was the day this baby started talking.
She keeps shouting, “Mama! Mama!” and then laughing at me.
She’s quite the disruption to a fancy meeting, no matter how cute she is, and the days of her being a quiet lap baby are behind us, I think.
I finally put her back in the stroller with all her things, even though everyone was giggling at her, and put a blanket over the top of her car seat and took her for a walk so she would finally sleep.
On our way out, she started shouting, “Bye! Bye! Bye! Mama! Bye! Bye! Bye! Mama! Bye-bye! Bye-bye!” all the way around the corner to the lounge by the restrooms and the bar, where I seriously considered a cocktail (not really, of course) while everyone roared with laughter as we left.
She is finally asleep, but I know the talk is almost over and the applause will wake her.
But she’s pretty cute right now, while she’s sleeping.
