Azita has the purest little heart of anyone I’ve ever met.
Today as we drove home from a very full day at a La Leche League playdate and lunch with my husband (bah bah to Azita), Azi sat in her carseat on the way home nearly breaking down from tiredness.
I told her we were going to take a nap when we got home, and she inevitably began crying (you have to give her lots of warning so that she can accept the terrible fact of naptime).
She looked at me and said “I want to snuggle couch. I don’t want to snuggle bed because Bah Bah’s not home to hold baby Aaaaaaaaaaaaddddddddddaaaaaaaaaaaaa.”
It just sounded so sweet, not whiny like one might imagine.
Yesterday she asked me if we could leave baby Ada in the swing at home while we went to story time at the library.
She never liked when Payman went to work before baby Ada but now she hates it. She begs him to stay home and again, it seems more sweet than whiny.
It seems sweet because she is handling the whole new baby process so well. She waits and waits for Payman to get home and then when he is, she doesn’t know who she wants to hang out with more, me or him. He holds Ada so I can play with her, and then she wants to sit with him. Its kind of funny.
Other funny things she has said since Ada’s birth:
One morning, playing on the floor: “Let’s get all wrapped up in the blanket with me, coffee, and baby Ada.”
“You have to be careful. If you drop baby Ada we have to get a new one.”
“She’s so pretty. She’s so cute. She’s so soft.”
“I just love her.”
Payman asks, “hey, Azita, did momma have a baby in her tummy?”
“Yeah, she’s right there,” and points, with a look on her face, as if to say, “Didn’t you figure that out yet, Bah Bah?”
Ada often cries when we put her in the carseat: “Ada doesn’t like her carseat. She wants a different color. She wants a new one.”
“My favorite color is glitter,” Azita said.
I was doing Azita’s hair and I said, “You know one day you are gonna be big like Mama. What are you gonna do then?” And she said, “Get a haircut.”
The next day I put pigtails in her hair and she said she wanted a pony tail and took them out. “It’s a little too different for me, Mama.”
