We woke up to another snow day today. Amelia has only had 3 so far but it seems like it’s been a long, cold, snowy winter none the less. Maggie slept pretty poorly last night, waking up every hour or two. I was taking her temperature this morning, really just double checking the obvious reasons for the long night, when Will came in and said “Oh, is she feeling over the weather?” I love when they have their own colorful sayings. Will also asks me to “un-stain” his clothes while doing laundry and starts every sentence with “Mom, I have something to tell you.” I just laugh in response now, that is instead of weep at hearing this statement for the 413th time in one day.
Maggie is 18+ months old. She often reminds me of an ant picking things up I wouldn’t think she’d even attempt to move, and a monkey climbing up on just about anything. She is going to be a daredevil on the playground when the weather warms up. She is becoming more and more adamant about walking places on her own, saying “walK” with lots of inflection on the “K”, and insists on sitting at the table in a regular chair for all meals. Yes, the messes are impressive. (And Will is concerned about me “un-staining” his clothes!)
Off to check on the sledding across the street. Thank goodness for wonderful neighbors and a great sledding hill!
