How does your garden grow?Continue reading
Hello! I realized I hadn’t hopped on here to share much news lately. Of course, there isn’t much going on lately, anyway. The days are pretty similar with everyone being home.Continue reading
That’s right. Here is the official blog announcement. There is going to be a second Fudgelet in the family. Well, obviously I won’t call that child Fudgelet as well. I will need a second nickname. It is still a bit early to be confident on the gender, so we shall see. I had joked previously about making the name related to salt/chips/etc. in honor of K’s favorite treats. And it could work in a sweet and salty way for their names. Anyway, I am not focusing on the baby today as much as myself. I don’t get too many chances to be selfish these days, and I am taking advantage of it on here today. This is also my moment to remind sensitive souls and eyes to stop reading here. If you don’t enjoy knowing or hearing about female things, then go now and come back next post.
We made our twice-annual visit to Maryland to see family, friends, and celebrate Christmas. Shortly after this post goes live we will be back home and getting ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends and our small family Christmas. We save our gifts for when we get home…lots of pros because you can have everything ready for when we get home and not have to worry about shipping it somewhere else, there is no hassle of bringing presents to and fro, and it spreads out the giving. Here’s hoping my boys like their presents.
This is the last post where I use months to refer to the Fudgelet. Can you believe it? The next post he will be 24 months old, or better known as 2 years old! At that point, I stop using months. I know some people still do them, but let’s be honest…asking people to understand “22 months” is enough math for most. Especially for fellow moms that are tired from 22 month olds running around and not sleeping well, haha!
There were some cool changes between 16 and 18 months, but I think the Fudgelet has been really progressing the last two months. He is starting to become more of his own person. I like to look at him and try to figure out what he will look like when he is older. His facial expressions and emotions are quite varied, and definitely make you think he is in the teenager stage of toddlerhood. Or at least the pre-teen stage. Not only is he more aware of everything around him, he remembers things fairly well (like which room has the fun Legos), and is able to express himself so much more.
