Things that are not overrated, however, tutus 24/7:
New kitchens c/o old friends and their generous hand-me-downs:
Revi, in the window:
And under my skin:
...but my favorite moment of the week came when Bo, after spending the last six months watching Revi wave bye-bye and say hi-hi, finally figured out how to do it herself. And it happened to be at the exact moment I was filming a little video, which I seldom do. I take a hundred thousand million photos (as you know) but video, at least with Bo and Rev has been something I've stayed mostly away from.
Mainly because I've found that video is far too upsetting to watch. I feel sick when I watch videos of Archer as a baby. I feel sad and sick and not in a sweet, nostalgic way like I do with photos. It's almost macabre. Like I'm eavesdropping on something that has died.
Which sounds incredibly dramatic but there you go. There you go!
Anyway. Here I am posting video when I hate video but OH MY GOD, she discovered her wave. Ms. Bo Sha-lo discovered her wave. And I had to share because the look on her face... the shock and awe of "holy shit, this is my HAND and it is moving back and forth in a wave like fashion and I am doing it. I am DOING THIS THING!" moved me pretty much to tears and sobs and wails. Discovery is an intense thing, you guys. Especially when it's happening to someone you love.
ED: Remind me to delete this post in a year because it will break me in 472 pieces to watch this again. It's already breaking me to watch it right now. Because last week Bo didn't wave and this week she does and on Friday she walked across two small rooms to land in my lap and Revi has a thousand new teeth and can say "mama" and "dada" and Bo kisses her dolls now and and and.
