RolyPoly is an outside baby. If you are not holding him IN YOUR ARMS, then he has to be outside. It is the only place he will sit in his swing and be content. I guess there is just so much to look at, he forgets he isn’t being held.
Unfortunately, yesterday (and apparently again today WOO HOO) we have had unseasonably warm weather for here. AND HUMID. I don’t tolerate heat well, but I despise humidity. (Why yes I do melt, just like the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. In fact, I have a bumper sticker that says “don’t make me get my flying monkeys” that the family gave me).
Too hot to be outside means we have to figure out not only what to do with ourselves inside all day, but RolyPoly too! Yesterday afternoon though, we had a little thunder/lightening/rain storm roll through. It was muggy and warm, but we haven’t seen one of those since we lived in Utah (pre-1998). So we sat out in the garden to try and enjoy it. RolyPoly got warm right away so we had to remove his onesie. He was sitting the swing looking at the lemon tree when he just started smiling. I have no idea what was so funny about the lemon tree at that moment, but his smile was unbelieveably radiant! And I caught the second one on camera!
This makes it not so frustrating at all. It is, in fact, contagious. Enjoy your weekend! And smile!
