I love having a toddler!

I have spent most of the month at home with Lily. She is advancing and learning new things everyday, but since she has hit the big milestones I forget to report on her progress.

Anyway, this stage is so much fun! We have started to get more bumps and bruises though, which is to be expected with a toddler exploring her world. September brought us her first bloody nose. I honestly have no idea how to stop a bloody nose for a toddler. They don't hold still, they just cry and want to cuddle. So we cuddled and we both ended up covered, but she recovered quickly.
Lily loves her puppy as much as ever. I honestly wish that this dog behaved half so well for me as he does for her. She has taken to examining his teeth, pulling at his gums, and using him as a soft chair a he just lets her.
And of course, she is getting more independent and is trying to make more decisions for herself. This is her way of telling me that bath time is over.
She still isn't talking much. She has a few words that she says regularly, but for the most part she just points and squeals. I'm not worried though, her comprehension is fantastic! And she is so obedient, I say bed time and she grabs her baby and walks into her room for story time.

As far as the current pregnancy goes, it is going to sound crazy, but I honestly keep forgetting that I am pregnant. If my jeans still fit I think that I might forget entirely. We have scheduled our anatomy scan though and I am getting very excited about that! So watch for an update on the 15th.


  1. I totally know how it feels forgetting you're pregnant. As much as I loved it the second time, you're so active being a mommy already, it's hard to slow down and take it all in the second time through! But do try. Especially at night when it's calm and you have a moment to yourself. Get to know your baby. It goes by even faster this time through. =)

  2. Oh my goodness, that bloody nose would've scared the heck out of me lol Lily is getting so big! I am so excited for your gender update, it's so close!! Oh & Gabby lets us know she is done in the bath the same way, it's so awesome to see her becoming so independent.

  3. I never thought about how quickly it must go by the second time. Chasing a busy little body around all day probably makes the time go fast! Enjoy this time because before you know it you'll be chasing TWO!!! 3 MORE DAYS!!! woo-hoo!
