Wow. A lot has happened in 2 months! Ami has started school (two days a week, 9-1, at an Mother’s Day Out program, that is). Her first few weeks went really well, but then we were gone for a couple of weeks, and ever since we got back dropoff has been a nightmare for the […]

Let’s see here. What’s changed since the last time I wrote? We had a great, prolonged visit from my inlaws, Granna and Pa (Ami calls them Geeka and Pa, or often her own portmanteau GeekaPa). Ami has had TWO stomach bugs, one of which poor Geeka caught while they were in town. We created a […]

You sit and spin around on your butt, using your legs to trace wide circles. You squat, unsupported, playing. Today, you bear-crawled […]

Dudes and lady-dudes, Babaloo DESTROYED this whole tray of food last night. I was shocked—I’d really thought Dada was over-serving her when he set the tray on the table. We’ve offered chicken a number of times, but this was the first time that she really ate a good bit of it, shredding and gnawing with […]

Well, baby girl. When you were seven weeks old, back in January, I went to my first breastfeeding support group (no, I have no idea why I waited so long. I should have started going IMMEDIATELY). There was a woman there with a baby who was 8 months old. I looked at this baby, then […]
