I've been really swamped with work, so I haven't been able to read or post in a while. But, i see that we have some mommies expecting! That's awesome. I am stil not trying/not preventing, but will hoepfully really TRY in February when she turns 2.
We're doing fine. Isabelle is still nursing, but sleeping well otherwise. She is trying to transition to only one nap a day which is a work in progress, and sometimes not so fun.... She is having fun running around all day and asserting her newly found attitude. She says "no" a lot..... But she's still quite loving and sweet most of the time. She's learning to be gentle with the pets, and they appreciate her effort a great deal
We're going to the beach in August with extended family. I'm really exicted to get away, but also to see her at the ocean. We went in May, but it was still quite chilly in the water. She liked it anyway, but this time will be better I think. I really really really need a break from work right now, and I'm looking forward to the down time.
One upside to work is that I got a new office as someone else left. I have a huge beautiful window now. Seiously, the sunlight has improved my working conditions tremendously. I have plants that make me happy, too. It's a little thing, but feels really big when there's been no pay raises in the past 4 years! Funny, cost of living seems to continue to rise......
We have a new babysitter that is awesome. She's young and sweet, and Isabelle loves her. They play outside and they go on "fieldtrips" to the local park/pool, Dollar Tree, and walking around the neighborhood. This siter loves our pets, which I cannot say for the previous sitter.
I guess that's all my updates. I should be around a little more. Hope you all haven't forgotten me
