Chris Playing Mommy

I got a glimpse today at how not exactly feminine I am through Chris. He put on my flip flops, grabbed my blue canvas "purse", put on some chapstick, came over and gave me a kiss, and then walked to the front door and said "bye bye." I wish the camera were working. I think it's our version of the kid wearing mom's high heels, pink bag and lipstick.

I've been busier lately. I would've liked to have more to do a few months ago. Now that I finally have work, I'm exhausted from the end of pregnancy. I guess beggers can't be choosers, right?

My education planning position has started up again. Apparently he had no work for a few months, and now he's busy. I'm enjoying the big projects, but the little stuff gets annoying. I also have a hard time dealing with the nature of how I'm getting assignments to do. My boss is very busy, and a bit scattered. He'll ask me if I have time for 1 task, and when I say yes, he'll give me something way more involved to do (that takes way more time than I necessarily have). I could say no, but I want to make a good impression, and I want to work, just maybe not quite as much. Anyway, my mom and John have been helping out with Chris so I can get some work done. We'll see how long this lasts as I'm now 32 weeks pregnant.

Chris is doing well. He's understanding more and more every day. His words are improving, but he's still not exactly a good talker. He knows what he's saying, we just don't always. But he does have a ton of "words" these days. You just have to apply the word "word" liberally. He's been climbing a lot lately. He'll push a chair up to the counter, climb up and get himself a pear to eat. Resourceful kid. He's also enjoying the spring weather as he wants "more outside" all the time. I think he'd be outside 24/7 if allowed to be. Definitely his father's son.
