I can honestly say that this month has been like none other, and one that I will never forget.
You came back from your amazing vacation with your grandparents speaking yet another language. You picked up Romanian as if it was the only language you had ever spoken. The only problem was that I could never understand what you were saying. Luckily, you daddy was never too far away to translate for us. In the few weeks that you've been home, you've started adjusting back to English and French, although every once in a while you like to throw in a Romanian word just to keep me on my toes.
Lately, you have become obsessed with all things Pirate. You love to dress up like them and are fascinated by every ship you see. We took you on a special trip down to the beach just so that you could see the Pirates at your new favorite restaurant. I love seeing the magic in your eye when you dive into this new imaginary and magical world. This has also started expanding into Castles (chateaux) and Princesses. My favorite, of course, was when you called me a princess on the day I was wearing a skirt. Remember that you did in fact think "mommy was a princess" at least one day in your life. I know I will.
This month, you gave me the first, of what I expect to be many, mini-heart attacks. While being your usual rambunctious self, you fell - in the bathroom. It was almost in slow motion. You began crying, and when we lifted you up to see if you were okay, we saw all of the blood coming from your eye. I have to admit to you, that I panicked and didn't handle the sight of all of that blood very well. Luckily, everyone got it together shortly after and you had your second big trip to the ER.
You handled it like a champ and were very calm throughout the entire thing. It must have been the laughing gas they gave you. Three stitches later, you were as good as new. It hurt me to see you with stitches, but you were as proud as can be. You love to point it out to people, and milk it for sympathy when you get in trouble for jumping around yet again.
You certainly keep us on our toes, but life with you is nothing if not fun. We love you!
