It is a sad state of affairs when your cloth diapered child outgrows her pants in length before the butt gets too tight. Sad indeed.
I know it’s been a long time since I updated, I’m sorry. Things have gotten a little crazy, but it’s good, I think. I started a home-based business selling a well-known brand of kitchen tools that I’m not allowed to speak the name of here, and I’m pretty excited about that. I’ve been using them for years and years, and I very much believe in the product that I’m selling, which is most of the battle. Andrew has been in and out more than usual as he started 2 new contracts for the winter in addition to the one he usually has. Nothing major, just a few extra days here & there.
Murphy is doing very well and growing like crazy. He caught his first bird last Friday, now we just have to get him onto the mice. Morgan still hasn’t turned up since December 15th. Bailey is as happy and rambunctious as ever, not enjoying our current cold snap, but it’s not as though she spends a ton of time outside anyways, the spoiled creature. Charlie continues to heal. His wound is now about 2 inches wide and 3-4 inches tall, and almost all the swelling is gone. I’m keeping it wrapped up in this very cold weather and he seems to be pretty pleased with that turn of events.
And speaking of growing like weeds. We know you all only read this blog for one reason, so here she is. BigKid is 19 months old now and getting bigger every day. She learns new words every day, and has become quite the little parrot. (No more speakerphone for Daddy when he’s talking to his friends at work! Some of those guys are worse than sailors.) She now says, in addition to many others, “book”, “bear”, “shoe”, “peekaboo”, and “bless you”. She’s getting very tall, and it seems as though every time I get her dressed I think “this is the last time you’re going to be able to wear this.” Current favorite toys are the legos she got for Christmas.
Here she is drinking out of the big-kid Starbucks cup that Boppa bought for her. She thinks that’s pretty cool.
And here she is in the midst of playing games with Daddy. She loves to play peekaboo under a blanket.
