Well its here... our summer that is. A little later than normal, but the sun is shining and it feels so damn good. The sounds of kids out of school chasing sprinklers, setting up lemonade stands and riding bikes into the sunset makes me real happy. My lil lady is in her skimpies now for most of the day and her rolly polly soft white baby skin is getting a healthy dose of vitamin d.
Lucie is now 19 months old now. She's learning new words daily and and wakes up with the craziest burst of energy known to man. Our world has shifted alot in the last few weeks. She is into everything imaginable and has learned the delicate art of TANTRUMS. Of all the things that don't come with a hand book! I keep trying to remind myself that she is just asserting her boundaries and that this is all just part of growin up. O is about ten times more patient, which is both a blessing and a curse. It makes me so reassured that one of us can remain calm, but on the flip side, so inadequate as a mom. Any other mama's out there find the onset of the terrible twos a challenge? I welcome your advice and thoughts. In the meantime I try to focus on my dad's wise words: "She is exploring her world as it is bursting at the seams around her." Oh what fun it would be to be a kid again! Happy Summer everyone.
