We cleaned out closets today.
Tim dropped off a bunch of stuff earlier this afternoon that we donated and now, sitting in the kitchen and living room, are several ‘baby’ things that are out the door. Tomorrow.
Of course it’s bittersweet to load up these things, including bouncy seats, play mats and boxes (2 huge diaper boxes full) of clothes that already do not fit my daughter.
You know, the one that was born like…uh… yesterday?
Yeah, that one.
I’ve purchased the materials to hand make invitations for her first birthday party which is only about 5 weeks away.
This is crazy talk people.
She’s attempting to stand on her own and seems to believe that every drawer, cabinet, shelf, container and toilet is HERS to open, dismantle and put her hands in.
Just gotta love the whole toilet thing. I’m thinking either plumbing or physics may be in her future. It’s a tad too early to tell really…
Anyway, while my MIL was here this past week she got to see first-hand how ‘toddler-fied’ Baby K really is these days. And by my lack of baby-proofing, it’s possible that I am in denial.
She’s also quite demanding and although she’s only speaking just a few actual words right now, we can usually tell what she’s “saying” when she hollers and bellows at us. And for some reason we’ll let her go on for a bit before we meet her needs. We kinda think it’s amusing. Her? Not so much.
All this to say, I feel like life is moving at warp speed right now.
Baby K’s first birthday soon. (oh and all that other stuff I just said up there)
Little G starts back to his pre-school in 2 weeks.
The B Man starts week 3 of First grade tomorrow.
And? There is Halloween candy in my grocery store.
It’s all too fast.
Next thing you know she’ll be ready to give up the pacifier…
