Well, Then

It's been a while. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the holidays are all up in our faces. The year has blown by. I think that, just like the pregnancy made last year go so quickly, school-wise, having a baby around to mark the passage of time is doing the same this year. Just a few updates:

  • Ike is... crawling, pulling up, and (as of a few days ago) flushing the toilet. Cause and effect... "I push this shiny silver thing down, and it makes a noise!"
  • Loki has taken well to his new human torturer. He'll allow himself to be crawled upon, grabbed at, and bitten, and when he's had enough, he just gets up and walks away.
  • My classroom looks like twenty different construction paper art projects exploded in it, and it's not far from the literal truth. This time of year, it's best to stick to things that keep students' little hands busy.
  • I'm trying to lose the pregnancy weight, and making modest progress. Slow and steady wins the race, eh?
  • Isaac is eating food. He refuses anything offered to him on a spoon, so we're just giving him baby-sized portions (read: tiiiiiiiiiny and non-choke-able) and letting him self-feed. Not sure what I'm going to do with my ziploc bags full of homemade purees, though.

And with that, I leave you. Don't let the holidays stress you out.

Yes, Sara, you are definitely slimming off the baby weight. Slow & steady Is best, right.

Ike is adorable & I feel very lucky to be seeing him grow up. Although, I haven't been able to kiss his little cheeks for a while. I need to come over to visit soon.

If he is flushing the toilet aleady, does that mean he will be potty trained by the time he is a year old? Cannot wait to see all of you! Mommac
