It has been a while so let me catch you up on what has been happening in my neck of the woods.
October: My mother feel and broke her knee cap in half (a clean break). She is elderly and gave us a scare! After spending time in the hospital, she was transferred to an "old folk home" for rehab. She lives in Virginia and two of my sisters spent alternating weekends visiting with her.
November: Thanksgiving, Big Daddy's Birthday and the beginning of the end of the semester crazies for those of us in the academic world.
December: Little Man and I went to VA for 2 1/2 weeks to prep my mom's house for her release from the home. LM had a blast visiting the home everyday and seeing all of the people. He was like a breath of fresh air in there! He did great on the two day drive up and two day drive back. He has also discovered the TV and Thomas the Train. Life has suddenly gotten much easier for me!
Christmas was nice this year. LM got into opening the presents and it was cute to see his facial expressions. He is such a sweet and loving child. We are blessed to have a kid with such a big heart!
January: LM embraces the high five and blowing it up. His vocabulary is exploding! He is also peeing on the potty sometimes! We are not officially training but he is doing great! I have started taking an online class for a reading endorsement and that has been fun!
February: Just started today, but already some excitement. LM has his 24 month check up today.
That is it for now, I will try to be a bit better about updating things! Promises, promises!
