On Wednesday Suzi and I met Beth, Elaina and friends at the park in Clemson. They have Picnic in the Park there every Wednesday in September and April. I am ashamed to say I didn't take a single picture, but Beth did. There's even one of Suzi in there (with her hair flying wild, as usual).
I do have a cute story to tell, though. As it neared 2:00 and parents and kids began to pack up and go home, Suzi spotted a little boy who looked between three and four years old. She smiled and began following him around. As he stood looking at her, she walked up within a yard of him and said "boo." I don't think she was trying to scare him; she was just making conversation. But he ran away. He came back later and while they were both standing by the climbing wall, she suddenly threw her arms around him and gave him a big hug! He looked shocked, so I assured him that it meant she liked him. He smiled and said "She's my friend. She's almost my girlfriend, but I hate to say it, but I already have a girlfriend I'm gonna marry." Not even potty trained yet and she's already flirting with the boys!
Another cute thing she does now is pretending to cook food for us. The other night we were sitting on my mom's couch watching Hairspray and Suzi grabbed the DVD case. She wiggled her little fingers inside the case and then plucked out imaginary food. She stuck her whole hand in my mouth to feed me and then drew it back, eagerly looking for my reaction. ("Mmm! So good!") Then she fed Daddy some, and even Grandma got a taste of Suzi's yummy cooking. We have to get to work on her kitchen (it's on my list for September) and then she can make us even more yummy meals!
Being Suzi's mommy just gets better and better.
