Photos from yesterday’s session.

My busy little baby has decided she really does not need any sleep to survive. It’s ridiculous!  She’s started napping for about an hour every day around noon.  Then she goes to sleep at night at 7 pm, and at 9 pm she wakes up, wide awake.  She stays awake until around midnight.  She still nurses all night long, between midnight and 7 when she gets up ready to party.  Sometimes it’s earlier than 7, depending on if Rosie gets up...

Ada meets the snow. 1

Ada meets the snow.

Ada met the snow for the first time yesterday.  It went like this: Rosie loves the snow. Ada started saying, “What’s that?” today.  She says it like, “Hut dat?” It might not be discernible to anyone who hasn’t been listening closely to her babble for the past few months, but I made a video of it anyway. At the end she repeats me saying “bless you”.  She repeats scrambled versions of a lot of stuff we say!  I think she’s going to be...

Christmas Day. 1

Christmas Day.

Christmas morning at home…Rosie hoped Santa would bring her a doctor kit and he did! Christmas was fun this year.  Rosie was incredibly excited and Ada frantically tried to eat wrapping paper and tape and tags. Then we went to my parents’ house for lunch… We had a great Christmas. It was Ada’s first Christmas, and it was a white Christmas. My house is a disaster and we are all exhausted!

Christmas Eve. 0

Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve at my in-laws’ house… And then he threw up, right in the seat belt hole in the bottom of the seat…apparently he’d snacked on cat food prior to getting in the car. (Tyler’s brother.)

8 Months. 2

8 Months.

It’s been 8 months since the most amazing day ever. I gave birth to my sweet squishy Ada in our bed, in the same spot we’re snuggling in right now as I write this. I caught her with my own two hands while the midwife stood back and made the video. I did it!  I grew her in my womb, felt the top of her head inside of me as I dilated, and I was the first person to hold her. The other day...

Co-sleeping and Child Led Weaning at Age Four. 4

Co-sleeping and Child Led Weaning at Age Four.

Another day of being alone.  Thankfully Tyler will be off this weekend, because I’m not sure how much more I can take.  He came home from work at 4 in the morning, then slept until 1.  At 1 he got up and we ran to the store to arrange for the appraiser to come tomorrow to price tile floors for the kitchen and bathroom.  (That’s what the in-laws are getting us for Christmas!)  It’s estimated at $2,800 including the tiles and installation. ...

Bangers a la BANG! 3

Bangers a la BANG!

Rosie had her first ever dentist visit this morning.  It was shockingly uneventful.  I don’t know what I was so nervous about. I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was three years old.  The dentist was excited that I was bringing in my kid, said it made him feel old.  He took a picture on his camera of Rosie and him together.  I’m waiting for him to email it to me.  He’s a nice guy. Rosie was thrilled to get to go...

Rosie’s Dance Recital.  <3 0

Rosie’s Dance Recital. <3

Rosie’s first dance recital last night went well.  She had such a great time! Despite any reservations I might have had about her outfit, they all looked SO CUTE together.  The other age groups did a wonderful job too.  Ada loved watching them dance.  She kept putting her arms over her head in an arch and then clapping her hands, and dancing by bending her knees.  I think maybe she will want to do dance when she turns four too… Look how...
