Hi friends. Before I forget to tell you, we have a new trick these days. Caroline has learned to wave. And feed herself puffs. Sometimes with more success than others (with the puffs I mean. She's already become a waving pro).
The past week+, Caroline and I have had a nasty chest/head cold. Luckily, this time, Hubby was spared. I was sick for over a week and Caroline is, just today, starting to seem "normal" once again. I love her little baby coos, but boy - how I wish she could tell me how she was feeling and what was wrong.
Okay, but back tracking...where to start and what have you missed? Hubby got me some lovely flowers for Valentine's Day, which over a week later, were still looking great.
In addition to waving and puffs, Caroline has been quite the little monkey.
two weekends ago, little did I know that it would be short lived.
...which brings me to another thought. Another milestone will likely pass soon enough, that will undoubtedly make me shed a tear.
But you know what regularly reminds me that I still have a young baby that needs my constant love and care - and not some pre-teen on the verge of dating?
This little girl was also spoiled a bit lately. Her mommy and daddy bought her not one, but two new pairs of shoes.
What else? Oh, how about the terrarium that I received for Christmas? I promised I would post photos of my very cool gift.
And for those who might be wondering, Riley is not dead. She is alive and well and has been loving her little sister. Each day, she gets better and more tolerant of Caroline's attempt to strangle her and pull her ears. Riley just sits there like a champ, and tries to sneak in a smooch when Caroline's not looking. It's such pure love and acceptance on both of their parts. I love to watch the two of them "hang out".
So that's all for now. Sorry to give you the silent treatment lately. But I will be back tomorrow, as well. Promise.
