Pocket Reference

A new word from Teagan: "Pah! Pah!" Yes, she has found her pockets. Now every family walk includes Teagan's discoveries of cool rocks, prickly seedpods, too-long pinecones and other random bits and pieces that fit nicely into pockets. When she is occasionally wearing a dress without pockets she pokes about from right & left looking and expecting, then finally calling out, "Pah! Pah!!" I discovered a silly solution--tuck her discovered token between the elastic of her bloomers and her diaper, beneath--it's our makeshift pocket. Works for the little things, anyway. Funny to undress her and have a stone fall to the ground. Development. Growth. Discovery. What amazing little people my children are!
