Isaac is really learning to swim. This week, we crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore. I couldn’t believe how peaceful and beautiful it was, just like the Chesapeake book kept saying. Regular crabs, hermit crabs, little fish, oyster shells, marsh snails—lots to investigate! Eloise SHRIEKED when the hermit crab emerged on my hand. That was pretty rewarding.
“Ah, oo, ee, or!” Eloise lined up and counted her strawberries at home the other day. She finally says yes and no reliably for what she wants. That’s been huge.
