Though spring is stubbornly refusing to get sprung here in Iowa (it was 25 degrees when I got in my car for work this morning) I’ve decided the blog needed a little spring cleaning and freshening up. A new theme, some updated tabs, a dim hope to start posting more…
The baby turns one in two weeks. This is always more of a milestone for the parents than the kid, I think. We’ve survived, basically, the first year. I think we’re hitting our stride as a family of four (six, really, but four under this roof) though I suspect the baby will be a more challenging toddler than her brother was. She is more physically curious I think (we really didn’t have to baby proof for Miles. Evelyn, on the other hand, is currently sporting a goose egg from falling into a table and recently discover that she enjoys pushing the furniture around on the hardwood floors) and more mobile. We have to watch her more but she isn’t a needy, floppy infant anymore…sometimes this makes me sad (no more babies for us) but mostly look forward to the toddler stage.
The next stage of the life of our family is starting, I think.
A new stage is starting for me too. I’ll start grad school in a few months. I’m getting back into training for tris. Miles will start kindergarten in the fall. Mr. Monkey is plotting his next career move.
Good things, all.
