photos for may!

Hello! The last couple of weeks have been rough around with toddler A getting a terrible cough, fever, and ear infection that left her home from day care for three days, and then sharing that bug with baby S and me. Could it be that we are finally getting over our consistent sicknesses for these first few months of day care? I hope so! Other than sicknesses, she’s been doing well, talking up a storm, mastering stubbornness, and staying active. She now regularly says two word phrases, and loves the word “mine” when referring to the inability to share with others. She loves Minnie Mouse, Tayo the Little Bus, Finding Nemo, and Cars. At day care, she loves hanging with the big kids and occasionally attempting to boss them around.

Baby S started day care last week and seems to be adjusting well. She’s starting to try some baby food so she can make it at day care without nursing, and seems to like sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas, apples, but not squash! She’s sitting up now, which means better photos. A and S seem to get along great.
