no swimming today
We missed swim class today. I kinda count on Donovan to wake up from his morning nap by about 10am, which gives us enough time to eat a snack and get ready before needing to leave the house by 10:45 to get to class on time. Today he slept late, and I slacked off on keeping track of the time, and before I knew it it was 10:40 and he was still asleep. He woke up a few minutes later, but even then there was no way we'd make it in time, and the class is only 30 minutes long anyway. Boo. Unfortunately they don't offer make-up classes either, but then again as Zach said I doubt this even makes it onto the short list of money spent on him that goes unused (for this one day's class).
In the afternoon we played again with Scarlet, D's new friend down the street. We've gone over there I think every afternoon this week so far, and she and D seem to really enjoy each other. When it got to be the "usual time" to head over I turned to D and asked him, "Do you want to go play with Baby Scarlet?"(what the grandmother calls her) And his eyes got big and he smiled a little, and headed straight to the door. She's about 10 months older than D is, and while it's not quite as big a difference as that between a newborn and a 1 year old, the difference between a 1year old and a 2 year old is still startling. She's so much bigger, and not only is she speaking tons but in both English and Portuguese. It's so incredible what goes on inside those little bodies and minds these first few years.
