We are almost to real time, almost. At least this post is finally about stuff that is going on in the same month that we are in and not a few months back.
First things first. For the last 2 1/2 weeks we have had a fourth member in our family. I can’t really share any information about her except to tell you that she is 2 years old and she is living with us temporarily. It doesn’t look like she’ll be with us much longer than a few weeks more but even in this short time it has been quite an interesting experience. Along with having to adjust to less of mom and dad’s attention I have also had to adjust to someone else wanting to play with my toys (even the ones I am currently playing with). I guess the good thing about that is that she has a pretty short attention span so it is usually only a minute or two before she moves on to the next thing and I can get my toy back. Gotta look for the positives in everything, right? She seems to have adjusted to our family fairly easily. There have been some pretty big changes for her, like having a scheduled bedtime, sleeping in a crib, being weaned off the pacifier, going to the dentist for the first time, and things like that so I am sometimes amazed at how happy she is (you know considering all that she has been through). Kids, we sure are resilient.
Are you wondering why I am holding a slice of cheesecake with a candle in it? Oh, you weren’t. But I thought for sure you were just dying to know. I’ll tell you anyway. We don’t usually celebrate half birthdays at our house but mom and dad thought it would be fun to do something special for me since I have done such a great job welcoming someone new into our house. Also, it’s really the first year that I realize that now I can say I am 4 1/2 and understand what the half means. And if you can believe it, I love cheesecake. This was the first one of mom’s that I had so I was pretty excited to get a slice. I wanted more but they cut me off after one.
Until next time . . .
