Tryouts

AMP is totally practicing for his Rockettes tryouts. He's got a high-kick that will blow your mind.

It's funny how fast the stages pass. For the first 6 weeks, he did this uncanny baby goat imitation, bleating away when he was hungry or upset. He also did a mean Joe Cocker but that's being replaced by a pretty decent Buddy Hackett. I remember the Joe Cocker stage with Perp but not Buddy, at least I don't think so.

Perp is in a weird place where we'll put her down for her nap or bedtime, and she'll be perfectly happy, saying bye-bye or night-night, then as soon as our asses hit the couch, she goes ballistic. I'm giving her one go-back to see if she's dropped one of her toys (detailed list to follow) or needs a hug. It's generally enough but I wish she'd just get her shit together when we're in the room at the start of bedtime.

I figure it's a phase; pretty big shakeup with AMP's arrival, occasional night at the ILs', etc. They seem to have a lot of phases, these kids.

One (1) woven cotton blanket
One (1) fleece blanket with flowers
