Random Update

It's been sooo long since I posted. Excuses? I have a million. But instead, I shall just let ya know what's happened since May.

Kiki now walks in public, though we still have to coax her by holding her hand.

When we say "It's bedtime!", she heads for the stairs, which she insists on climbing herself. If we hold her hands, she'll actually walk 'em (though she sometimes takes two at a time, which she finds endlessly amusing for some reason.)

She rode a pony at the fair.

She now points out where her head, nose, eyes, and mouth are; she kind of knows her shoulders, but she still won't point out her knees and toes. She squeezes her nose and says "Honk!" which I have a video of on my phone, but that format doesn't translate to the computer, so I can't share it. :(

Her newest favorite game is Ring Around the Rosey. I've been trying to teach her the hokey pokey, but everything always turns into Ring Around the Rosey.

This next week, she's going to start daycare twice a week. One of my good friends has re-started her in-house daycare, and she's just wonderful with kids and adores Kiki. It's going to be fantastic: Kiki will get socialization with other kids her age AND get out of the house AND I'll get uninterrupted work time.

And this time next year, Kiki will be in preschool 5x a week. I met the administrator (I think she is), got all the paperwork, etc. I want to do a tour of the school sometime, but we just haven't had the time yet.

And pretty much I think that's the general overview. Hope everything is great out there! I haven't not only been posting, I haven't been keeping up with anyone's blogs either. I need to get out of my hole methinks.

Wow, she's growing up! What work are you doing? The same thing as before?

Yep, same work. Just getting harder to get work done at home as she gets older and more mobile. You know, I get about a sentence into a depo and then I have to run screaming across the room to save something from her curious little hands. It's amazing what she discovers she can get into.

As long as she's making noise, you're fine. When you suddenly hear a lot of silence, then you KNOW she's into something she shouldn't be.

Kate's right. I thought I was having a wonderful 15 minute break to whip up muffins because Dess was so quiet and when I got back to her? She had drawn all over the leather furniture with a ball point pen. Boy, did I feel like an idiot.

Tell Kiki that if she gets any cuter she'll kill me dead. :-)
