Insert creative title here...or maybe not

Well, hi there.

 I know it's been awhile since we've really chatted.  It's just that, there's not too much going on.  (Or maybe there's too much?)

It's another long, cold winter.  I think we all are starting to feel the cabin fever.  We bake a lot of cookies (and eat them too.  We are going to regret that.) 

 E spends a lot of time at school.  And A spends a lot of time missing her.  

But he does like the time hanging with daddy.  And even some odd lunch dates with mommy.  But he sure can't wait to go to school himself.  (Slow down there buddy.)

A's language suddenly came in with a bang.  Overnight he started speaking in sentences and showing understanding of the relationship.  Last week, he saw a picture of a little boy on tv and said "Look, a boy like me!"

I think I about fell off the bed.

We also had to spend some more time sleep training...since mister thinks early mornings are appropriate.  And mommy and daddy just don't.  But like the smart boy he is, it only took a week and we are settling back into a better time to wake up.

A also has moved away from being as MUCH of a momma's boy as he was.  He does like his time with daddy just as much now.  I will admit to being a little sad of that.  As much as the clinginess bothered me when he was smaller, I sure did grow to love it as he got older.  Loved that he got so much comfort from me.  He has, however, decided that a kiss makes a booboo all better so regularly comes crying to me with some owie just for a kiss.  And sometimes he even makes up an owie just so he can give a kiss.

E is continuing to show her stubbornness and tenacity.  We seem to like to be in our room for time outs from our disinterest in listening.  In fact, just this morning, we had 3 time outs before 830.  I know we are going to be thankful for that stubbornness in a few years...but for now, it kills us.

Both kids are sick at the moment...and that means for some cranky, crabby moments.  For mommy and daddy as well who are exhausted from spring cleaning and possible upcoming renovations.

So we will leave you for now...Enjoy the rest of your winter and hopefully I'll be better at updating here again.

Take a bow....
