21 Months: A Day in the Life

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…

Today with a Nineteen Month Old

Today’s walk?
