New Hobbies

Rocky and I spend a whole lot of time hanging out during the day and although I take all kinds of pictures of her, she has never even taken one of me.
At first I thought it was because photography didn't interest her, but now I know it is because I haven't started any new hobbies. Really, if she tried to document my growth and development all she would probably get would be a bunch of pictures of me taking pictures of her. She is my new hobby and because she is always changing I never get bored.
Here are a few of her newest tricks.

The yoga ball has lived in our front room basically unnoticed for the last several months, but since she discovered it, she can't get enough. She still isn't even showing the slightest interest in crawling and the ball is quite elusive which perplexes her quite a bit. She has found that working with the ball is the most effective way to strengthen her core muscles.

She's also taken up reading thanks to our baby time group at the library. It's not as fun at home because I don't play the ukulele like the guy there, but it is kind of reassuring that all the teeth marks on the books here come from her nub instead of someone else's. She usually spends a few minutes on the light reading that you see here with the Little People then moves on to the classics which include Dr. Suess and Tolstoy.

In her spare time she works on her acting skills. This is her Hester Prynne in the one-woman production of The Scarlet Letter. I've been impressed by the depth of emotion which she portrays. She prefers to perform in her crib because it physically represents the emotional entrapment that binds her character.

After all her practice and study is finished sometimes she has time for relaxation and some laughs with her old lady.

Marci, I absolutely love this post. You are such a talented writer. I love your quick wit. I miss you guys; let Rocky gnaw on your cheek with her nubbin for me. =)

Your posts make me so happy. And I have to agree with Becky about the writing. I wish I was that clever.

Oh, and I thought this was funny. My word verification to post this comment is "ovens"
