It has always been funny thinking about New Years Resolutions. To make a list of all of the things you wish/want to do better in the upcoming year that it seems many folks don't stick to for very long. Many diets are started, many exercise plans, many promises to be a better person, a better wife or husband. I'm starting to wonder if these things shouldn't be started on a daily basis: you know, make a deal with yourself that for TODAY, you'll eat better, you'll exercise, you'll be the person your heart wants you to be. I think that this year, i'm going to try that approach! :)
You are playing in your bouncy chair and i have so much to do. The house is messy and we having your Uncle Don and the girls coming in three days. I have to re-do the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms and clean up the den, the sunroom and the kitchen. And your Daddy doesn't feel good so he's taking a half and hour nap. I have never known your Daddy to take a half an hour nap....but maybe he will surprise me! We also need a screw for your stroller; i think that once i get you down for your nap, i'm going to run to Lowes and find one myself. I have to get these things done......
It is a sunny but very cold day today. I don't even see too many birds out. Of course, the bird feeder being empty may have something to do with that! The wind is whipping around, too, so i'm sure that it's even colder than it looks. A nice day to stay in and stay warm!
Well, off to find your ba-ba and get you settled!
It has been a wonderous and joyous holiday for us!
Love you to the Moon and back....
later in the day update: You can now "walk" from one side of your crib to the other!!! Huge accomplishment, little one!! You and your Daddy are so very excited....you desperately wanted the Kermit the Frog that we put on one side of your crib; and you got it! You have also taken to saying "wow", lol.....such a big day for you and for us. To see you take that first step by yourself was such a big moment for me-i had to call your Daddy to get you do to do it again. I had tears in my eyes...you have grown up so much since you've been home with us. I took many photos yesterday and will post them on tomorrow's update of you!
love you, love you, love you....
