Life Lately

  • Calder loves preschool. I always knew he would. It just took him a month (or two) to warm up to it.  Now he is sad on days when he doesn't have school. He has made some really amazing friends. They innocently run around pretneding to be squirrels and skunks. They dig holes and explore nature. I love it. He loves it. 
  • We moved. Like 5 months ago. We are renting this adorable house. I absolutely love it. I'll show you pictures. I promise. Right now I'm enjoying decorating the porch. It is going to be our outdoor eating and lounging place. Stay tuned for that. 
  • Jason is really enjoying work. Through a stroke of luck for me instead of being gone for a month he had a month off. We went to London. It was awesome. 
  • Colette is so close to walking. I love that too. It is interesting to see how two kids from the same parents can be so different. Colette loves to practice. She has bruises on her legs from all her stair climbing but she is determined to go up and down all by herself.  Thankfully she hasn't ever fallen. Calder at this stage didn't want to try anything unless he was sure he could do it. He would think about a skill for a while before trying it. He was often successful at it because he practiced it so much in his mind. He still does that. 
  • Colette is a tease and loves to laugh and have a good time. 
  • I've started sewing again. I don't know why it takes me so long to get back into the groove after having a kid. It seems to be so overwhelming for the first year or so. Now Colette is pretty content to play alone for a few minutes here and there throughout the day. And she sleeps better at night, so I can start projects without worrying if they will wake her up.
