Ciao Mama

Magda really enjoys getting dropped off at Stepan's office at the end of the day. This is something we started a couple of months ago when I took my knitting class and did a triathlon pre-season prep training class. Today, I dropped her off so I could go swimming. The outer doors were locked and as we were waiting for Stepan to let us in, she would try to peer into the tinted glass doors and loudly call out, "Tata!". Once we were inside, she gave me a hasty hug and a kiss, ran for the elevator and called out, "Ciao Mama", with a little giggle and a wave.

She just gets cuter and more interesting every day. She's walking wonderfully well now, but still isn't as steady on her feet as her older cousin (at this age, 4 months makes a huge difference!). What that really means is that she is full of scrapes and bruises. Usually it's her knees that take the brunt of a fall, but today she fell off of the swing at school and has a pretty impressive scrape on her elbow. Poor little muffin. She didn't think much of falling off the swing.

Tomorrow I'll have to be extra vigilent with her or maybe wrap her from head to toe is padded cotton - else Stepan may want to fire me!

No kidding! When I took Magda up to my office, I noticed that she looked like a (well fed) street urchin. Spots on her shirt, spots on her shorts, scabs on her knees and a freshly skinned elbow.
