1,2,3,4,5,6,7...lift off

Button, button, what do you see?
You have two eyes more than me.

Zipper, zipper, why do you run?
Going back and forth does not seem fun.

Shoelace, shoelace why so lazy?
Dragging and slithering on the floor is crazy.

                                ~By Mommy, 
                                       Inspired by August

August is seven months old now and busy discovering the world around her.
Fascination is found in the smallest of things, like buttons.
Textures are thrilling, leather sofas, shaggy dogs.
Trees moving about above her command wide eyed attention.

She has met all my friends, been to all my favorite Austin spots,
and will be joining me this Saturday to attend the opening of the
Blue Genie Art Bazaar, lighting of the downtown tree and singing
Christmas carols with everyone.
It feels like month seven is lift off.

I remember I felt like that at roughly the same time - though I was still breastfeeding, the babies were just a bit more involved in their surroundings, not too open, not too closed, just the door a tiny bit open. Ya know?

Happy Carol singing!
