Night-Night Soon For Mermer

We're all sort of tired here tonight. The men because they worked on the roof all day and the mama and the MerMer because we just are.
I still don't know how I spell MerMer. Is it that way or Mermer or Mer Mer or what?
I think I like Mermer. Henceforth, this is how I shall spell it.
Until I forget and spell it differently.

Jessie and I ended up going into Tallahassee because the men needed a drill battery at their house. So we dropped by there and then we met Hank and Taylor for lunch. Yeah. We're lunch crazy. But it was such a nice day and we ate outside on the deck of a Mexican restaurant and even Taylor held August.
I say "even" because Taylor is wary of babies. She says she doesn't like them but look at this.

And August just relaxed on her shoulder and held on to her and drooled on her jacket and was as happy as he could be. I'm pretty sure I even saw her kiss the boy. Once. Or twice. 

So it was a good time and now we're home and supper is cooking and everyone's relaxing. August learned to make raspberry sounds with his mouth today and he is enchanted with his trick. He also learned to play the caterpillar. 

As you can see. He is one busy guy, that August.

Hopefully, he'll sleep good for his mama and daddy tonight. I know that I will sleep well, not having one ear awake to listen for Gibson, looking for his Mermer in the night.

You do too, dear friends. You sleep well too.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Doesn't like babies? I see a baby whisperer there.

    You sleep a deep and dreamless sleep, dear Mary.

  2. I am loving all the baby pictures, especially Gus because my grandson is just a bit older, and I see your little guy doing all the things ours does, just a few weeks behind. He is growing so fast!

  3. I didn't sleep so well because I had orange juice after the magical cut off point of seven o'clock.

  4. I wish I could be happy just playing the caterpillar. Babies are so Zen, aren't they? In the moment.

  5. Birdie- I slept very well, although there was that dream about having to hike with a little baby boy into the freezing tundra...
    Taylor is a funny and dear woman. She refuses to give babies gender pronouns until they are old enough to decide for themselves. "Is it happy?" she kept asking about August. And then she'd kiss his soft head again.

    A- He's fast and he's funny. And sometimes, but only rarely, he's furious.

    Mwa- What? Oh my. I guess OJ is supposed to be a breakfast beverage in your house.

    Steve Reed- Yes, they are, but they can also quickly become bored and want to move on to something else. But when they're in that moment, they are IN IT!

  6. No, anything I drink after seven (eight tops) makes me get up in the night. I should train my bladder. :-)


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
