Today was another remarkable day with the girls -- particularly Maggie. I don't know what's gotten into her (other than a little bit of Benadryl for a rash), but I'm loving it! I can't get over how loving and sweet she's being. We went out to play for a little while this morning, so I just let them both run wild on the playground since we had it to ourselves. Maggie would play on the swings for a few minutes, then run back to me for a big hug and a kiss.
Ryn, on the other hand, is getting less and less excited about the whole idea of Mommy. She loves her caregivers and her friends, and they truly love her. It was all well and good when she thought we were just pleasant short-term visitors, but this is getting a little out of hand for her. Now that she has to see us every day she's getting more than a little disgusted. Compared to a room full of her best friends I can see how quiet time with Mommy would be a little dull. She's still my silly little mouse though, and when she laughs (which she does often) I fall in love.
After our visit to the baby house today Azel and I came back by to pick up Dave for lunch. (We let him sleep late today -- all that wrath of Khan stuff gets a little exhausting.) We went to a little Turkish restaurant around the corner from the Tsum store that's named, curiously enough, Fast Food. Dave's been desperately craving a cheeseburger for at least two weeks now. In fact, he even said a couple of days ago he had dreamed about Burger King. I think that's a little sad, but... Anyway, today he got his cheeseburger and fries. It might not have been Burger King (the fries were LOTS better), but the fact that he could have cheese pizza for a second course and baklava and Turkish coffee for dessert might have been enough to make him overlook that fact. I know I say nearly every day that we've found a new favorite place to eat, but this one definitely made it into the top five. I'm going to have to diet for six months to recover from this trip!
