I think she grew 3 inches before I hit record.

Did I say everything is a phone?

Gale sure loves talking on her pretend phones. Her favorite being remote controls. In fact, she lost the entire 3rd quarter of a NBA finals game paused in tivo while we were at a game get-together because she needed to make that long distance call. She chose the remote on the coffee table over the iphones sitting next to it. Tv remotes do look like nice phones, I'll agree....maybe in the eighties Gale!! Anyway, here is her curl brush phone in full effect.

Maybe I should have used that brush to comb her hair. Her cloudy hair tufts are certainly baffling, my mother is instructing me to curl them around my finger. I will try this.

Father's Day and Besos

What a weekend full of parties. Gale spent monday sleeping in! I also got my first puckered up kiss from little Ms, it was so sweet it just about brought a tear to my eye. She had sneaked a peak of her parents kissing much earlier that day and thought she would kiss her mommy right before she went to sleep and right after mommy had finished changing a terrible stinky diaper. My goodness mommy deserved a kiss for dealing with that! Anyhow, I thought the day she would give me besos would never come.

Zooming around the zoo

Over the memorial day weekend we took the opportunity to bring Gale on her premiere visit to the L.A. zoo.
There was some of this:
And some of this:

But mostly there was a lot of this:

At this stage exotic animals are not quite as exciting as wide open spaces to run in.

Trying to decide if flamingos can be trusted.

San Francisco Nightingale

One little cat in a fish tunnel!

Can I make another long distance call on your tv remote aunt Molly?

Hmmm, shoes my you see they are my size?

Just a week shy of walking independently...
