...When I have my own room! On Saturday, Mommy and Daddy took me to Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop's house so they could babysit me while they went and met the home inspector to look at our (potentially) new house! Daddy says that we have to remain cautiously optimistic that everything will work out, but we're all getting really excited! Our offer was accepted and now there are inspections and appraisals and paperwork and things like that which don't really concern me. What does concern me is that I will get my own room! I am so excited!
Mommy also said that sometime we will get swings for the backyard - we have a nice big backyard that Daddy will have to mow so I can play in.
All my loyal readers: please think good thoughts for the paperwork and all that stuff. We can't get too excited until everything goes through because Daddy said we will jinx ourselves. (But, when Daddy isn't looking, Mommy does little happy dances. Hee hee hee.)
PS. I am starting to wave at people. I practice when I'm playing with my toys so that I can start trying to do it "in context." At least, that's what Mommy says.

Let's all stay cautiously optimistic that things continue well from here... but Chloe just might be on her way to her own room!

I didn't mind, because I am a very social baby.
The next day, we played with Daddy for awhile and then Mommy and I went to see everyone at the pool. I am quite the bathing beauty. I'm not afraid of the big pool like some babies. I was kicking and splashing and even put my face in the water to test it out. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but at least I didn't cry. I saw another baby - an OLDER baby - and she was crying. Not me! Chloe: 3, Other Babies: 0.
So, to recap: with a score of Chloe: 3, Mommy: 2, Dogs: 0, Other Babies: 0, I think we know who is the most clever, bravest, coolest baby on the block, don't we?

It's incredible to me just how fast she is growing. All of a sudden, the child has begun moving at the speed of sound... I'm not sure how that is possible since she can't even crawl yet. She has perfected the inchworm, though, and I can tell you one thing: Daddy and I are SCREWED. The days of putting her on her playmat and leaving her there while I go do the dishes are OVER. Over, I tell you.
She's also starting to have her own personality. The other day, I smelled something vile coming from the direction of her pants and when I looked to confirm, I swear the kid smirked at me. On Tuesday, when I took her to school after having been gone for several days, the only other baby there was going to sleep. I sat Chloe down on the carpet with all the toys and she looked around, confirmed that she was the only one down there, and a look of sheer ecstasy came over her face. I am confident she was thinking, "it's mine - it's all mine!" Then on Thursday, she and Zavier chased their teacher around the room because she had the audacity to have Chinese food for lunch and not share.
She is simply incredible, but it has become abundantly clear: Chloe is in charge and woe to the Mommy or Daddy who forgets that.
PS. from Chloe: Mommy speaks the truth. And there better not be any more peas. You wouldn't like me when I'm confronted with peas.

This weekend, Mommy and I went to Norfolk, VA for the Phi Sigma Sigma convention. Mommy is a Phi Sigma Sigma and I am a legacy. The Phi Sigs all said that I was very sweet and pretty and I had lots of fun meeting them, too. Some of them had babies for me to talk with and I really liked that. I am becoming very sociable.
I also had a great time hanging out with Grams and Grandpa! They drove all the way from Lake Lure to baby sit me while Mommy was in lots of meetings. We had such a good time! They brought me some presents and took me on lots of walks around Norfolk. We also went swimming in the pool. I am becoming quite the little fishy. I am trying to learn how to kick my legs and I didn't even cry when my face went under the water. I am getting so big and brave!
I also liked meeting Connor. He is Phi Sig Joanne's little boy. We made friends. I really like chewing on my fingers, so I thought he might like them, too. Mommy says that I am very thoughtful.
It was a really fun weekend and I enjoyed seeing my Aunt Diane (see my post about her below - she was late to convention because she was busy testifying in Washington), spending time with the Phi Sigs I met at the Golf tournament, and meeting lots of new people - like Mommy's friend Amy. Here's a picture of her and Mommy from Saturday night. Don't they look pretty?
At the Sphinx Banquet, I even got to help Mommy and Aunt Diane pick up an award for the Philly girls. The Grand Archon held me and I had my picture taken and everything. It was lots of fun!
My only disaster occurred while Mommy was packing and I fell off the bed! Mommy should have been more careful - I scoot around quite quickly now and off I went! I face planted on the carpet and got rug burn on my nose... but I am now so glad to be back and out of the car finally, that I forgave Mommy. She's still my friend.
"Dr. Spatz was asked by AWHONN to give testimony for the Call to Breastfeeding Action providing recommendations to the on breastfeeding policy to government agencies."

I am so proud of Aunt Diane! She is a good godmother and very smart!
