Friday And September

We had HE stay the night last night. She is a quiet little thing. The Boogie is delighted to have her here though she dislikes having to share her balloons. Last night we put them both to bed and the Boogie talked them both to sleep. They slept until 7:15 this morning ... which is a great improvement over 5:45, the time the Boogie woke up yesterday morning.

My Man has been back to work all week which is good. We both get three days off for the holiday weekend, which is also good!

August ended and it was as if a switched was flipped -- the weather turned gorgeous. Days are clear and sunny and comfortably warm; nights are cool enough for open windows and light blankets. I love love love summer and am always a little bit sad to see it end. This year especially it seemed to go by more quickly than ever before. However, I can live with this weather for a while.

The Boogie has been saying "smells like birf" a lot. We have no idea what this means. It's the only context in which she uses the word "birf." We ask her similar-sounding words and she says yes to all of them. I've also asked her to show it to me but she doesn't seem to know what I mean. Maybe "birf" isn't a physical thing? It's very puzzling.

She likes to sing "Let's Go Fly a Kite" from Mary Poppins. She doesn't know all the words or get the tune exactly right, so it goes something like this: "Let's go fly a kite, up to the atmosphere, up to the atmosphere we'll send it soaring," and repeat. And repeat. And repeat. It's like "The Song That Never Ends" only with different words. I am impressed with her ability to say "atmosphere" though.

Y'all have a happy holiday weekend! Maybe something exciting (in a good way) will happen for me to blog about next week. You never know what a weekend might contain, right?
