As you probably have heard by now, we have some change to our weather lately. My sister in Portland has some beautiful snow that shut down the city and we have had temps in the mid 50’s and flooding. I’ll take the early spring any day! It renews my spirit. We have been very on the go this week and it feels like I’ve been putting away laundry everyday, anyone else feel like everything is just piling up? I surely need some time away from the house. Although I can only imagine the laundry pileup when we get back…
Maggie: Potty training is going so well! We transitioned from the floor seat to a toilet topper. She has taken more initiative and has been very consistent as long as she doesn’t have pants on. That’s our next step! I obviously chose to potty train at the perfect time…hopefully we don’t fall backwards over our trip.
She now sings the entire song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – she knows most of the words, but she makes up the ones she doesn’t and I love it. She started saying “uh oh…oh no!” in the cutest way recently and it’s become a joke. She actually starts laughing about it, so it may be her first joke?
She has been very cuddly and loving to me lately. I keep looking back at her baby pictures and it breaks my heart how quickly she has grown. This is a precious time and I’m determined to soak in every bit of the details. I like to write them down (like in this blog), so that I forever remember how she fake cries with her face scrunched up or how she sings in a deep voice for the doctor part in 5 Little Monkeys. I just love how wild and lovely she is right now.
One last tidbit I don’t want to forget: she constantly plays with her dollhouse people and has names for them all. She has a mama, a daddy, and Baby Jesus. Who is actually Princess Aurora. Kids are just so funny.
Juliet: This champ has popped two teeth in the last two weeks. She is having trouble with sleeping as a result and also with transitioning from a swaddle. But we survive! She is very confident now at sitting up and has just started to play with toys alongside Maggie. It is SO cute!!! All I dreamed of coming true in front of me. I cannot wait for the interactive play! She is a total mama’s girl and I’m not touched out yet. She loves to be strapped on and hang out wherever I am. She loves music and has the sweetest laugh. She had her first late night giggle fit yesterday…she couldn’t stop laughing!
