Everyone wants to know what the Goober's been doing. Mostly, growing. And eating. And eating some more. This is her combining the two, having lunch a week or so ago:
Last week, we went to the children's museum down town. It was pretty cool. She made paper:
She enjoyed it so much I got a book (of course I got a book) on paper making, and we will get wild and crazy once we're in the house and have room to really make a mess. The laundry room has a drain in the floor. Very handy.
And did a virtual puppet show thing that was neat. Computer controlled marionettes, basically:
And stuck her face into this wall of pegs that left her impression:
This was a huge hit with everyone. Parents all around cheered and laughed and agreed that the glasses made the whole thing super-hilarious. (Which it did.)
The favorite of the day was a sort of do-it-yourself music box:
You'd place wooden balls in the little colored holes, then crank it. The balls would fall onto tuned bars and play a song. You can see that the Goober is blurry; she was busy playing and wouldn't hold still.
This is my artsy-fartsy photo of the rotunda.
Not bad for a cell phone picture.
Other than the trip to the museum, it's been pretty slow. We got her a fast-food meal a while back and it had an Iron Man necklace in it that lights up.
She immediately turned it on (she loves little switches and levers) and wore it, and we declared her Iron Baby.
Aaaand, when things are slow, she tries her hand at a little architectural engineering:
So, as you see, the Goober is alive and well. She's very excited about moving into the new house and starting school. (There is some issue about her age and starting Kindergarten. If it becomes a Big Issue, there will be rantings around here like you've not seen in quite a while.)
That's about it. The Goober's best statement lately was "Sekhmet doesn't act right because she has a cuckoo kitty brain." Followed up by "Sekhmet doesn't have any manners." Right you are, kid.
