With March sucessfully checked off my to-do list I'm reflecting on the last month, and year.
We bid farewell to the crib, started potty training and generally experimented with greater independence. We finally agreed on big brother's extracurriculars and they seem to be helping behavior in general. We made our own splash pad and some cute shirts. We went to the zoo and Mommy and Daddy even made it out on a date. So, yay March!
The power struggles have truly begun. Teething kicked into high gear again. Teething is the song that never ends. My pain got worse, fear intensified and doctors visits became a weekly event again. So, boo March!
Spring is in well...full swing. That means summer is almost here. Summer means science camp for big brother and more events to attend in general. It also means saying goodbye to Isaac's beloved second grade teacher (boo!) and this house (yay!)
Last March Riley's biggest accomplishment to date was sitting up and yesterday she pointed to my huge tub of gummy bears (stressful times) and said "get gummy bears!" She's definitely my daughter. In a few weeks she'll actually be hunting the eggs. Strange and exciting this, growing up stuff.
Last March I still had a flexible spine and hardware in my hip. Last March...that sounds like another century or even another planet. Riley was a tiny baby and now she plays with babies. She loves her babies so much they get fed, rocked, bathed and even read to. Actually we're pretty sure she thinks that "baby" is a verb meaning to take care of or help and "Baby" is the noun that refers to her and sometimes her dolls.
Adios, March 2011.
