March 6, 2016 | Just a few bullet-points of random memories
- E outed her daycare one day, when I pulled out a book of Thomas the Train and she said “Karen! Thomas on TV!” clear as day. We busted out laughing and she stared at us confused…
- One evening I was taking off E’s shirt, and the neckhold was somewhat small. It kinda got stuck on her head, and was pulling her eyes/eyelids up in a HYSTERICAL way. I started laughing each time I tugged it, and she did too…so this continued for at least five solid minutes.
- We have entered the phase of reverse-psychology, and we use it for food-purposes. I’m guessing we only have another few months of success!
- Skipping nap or messing up the schedule is a recipe for DISASTER. I try so hard to be relaxed about her naps, but we met the demon when we returned from skiing (night #1) and she refused to be comforted by either of us. Lots of crying/thrashing/etc in her bed was traumatizing for all of us!
- “I do it!” or “My turn!” are the most common phrases this month. If we have to be anywhere at a particular time, best to add a 15-minute cushion of time so she can put on her socks/shoes, buckle her car seat (top buckle) and walk herself everywhere.
February 22, 2016 | Our BFF E & her baby sister came over for a Monday-morning visit, and E was so excited for it. We talked about it for days, and she was even checking out the window here and there (just in case)! I love seeing these two play, and it is amazing how much little N had changed since I saw her last! Is that some reddish hair I see? 🙂
And who needs baby gates when toddlers enjoy being in the kennel?
After looking at these images on my computer, I had to add my own little captions on what went down.
“E, check out this move I can do…maybe you can try it next?” Our E
“Oh yeah, that DOES look like fun! I can do it too!” Their E
<Our E sneaks over to the baby car-seat to swipe a toy/have full buckle-control>
“Did you see? E? Where did you go?”
I see a lot of fun AND trouble with these two in the future…!
February 20, 2016 | As if hosting a birthday party wasn’t enough, D and I made plans to attend this super-tiny-venue concert by one of my all time favorites, Glen Phillips. WOW. I believe the chapel sat 70? And there was just a single mic, he could see all of us clearly, and there was this ease of conversation that I just loved. We got there a little late so we were in the last row, but I definitely hope we get to see another show there. Date night!
