iiiiiiiiiiits FRIDAY! And it's April 12th. And we built a mini-snowman yesterday and a medium size snowman today. In the second week of April. hooray. (slumped shoulders and dejected look on my face.) I don't mind the snow so much. It's the mud in my driveway I can't handle. Anyhow, it felt nice out there today, dusting off the cobwebs from another week :)
I often worry about Judah's development. He has met all his milestone markers, but since he was born before his lungs were all set, I think I will always worry more about him in that regard. And he isn't as clear of a talker as his siblings, who were/are big talkers. There has never really been a reason for me to fret about Judah, but I guess he's my baby & my reminder that life will happen as it happens, not as I plan :)
Today after lunch he came out to the living room to build a tower. He has been enjoying the blocks for the last few days since we did a little toy sorting (which = we re-discovered their existence . Judah likes to stack the blocks end to end the long way, with a roof shaped piece on top. Every.time. He couldn't find the big roof & asked me if I have seen his triangle.
"Mommy? You see my twiangle?" It made me teary. I guess I don't have to worry so much. He got this.
I gave the kids the smallest/bendy carrot in the fridge to use as a nose. They were quite pleased with their ol' Ma. Some days, it doesn't take much to impress them. I like days like this. With the kindergartener at school, the 5 year old with all the hair, and my 2 years 10 months 21 day old baby. What. At least I stopped calculating how many weeks old he is. (fine. 151.)
Hope to see the yard by Monday!
