Whew. Our house no longer looks like this.
Most of our rooms and closets are fixed up. Now just our "new" study needs some decorative assistance. That's probably not going to happen anytime soon. I'm not getting the visions or inspirations right now. I've been home all day every day. Walking around, bouncing the baby and playing playmobil with Keely. Soooo, there isn't much to report. I did get the cord for the camera so let's take a look at miss 20 year old Keely.
What the ? Poor girl is getting bored around here. She's taken to dancing on the back of the couch cushions for fun and turning most things we say into questions. EX: Keely, it's cold outside so I'm going to bring that plant in. "How come it's cold outside so you're going to bring the plant in?" She can go an hour asking only these kinds of questions that she knows the answers to. oy. My eyes are bugging out here.
Yesterday she asked if we could make lemonade. It was about 35 degrees and I didn't have those ingredients on hand, so we had hot tea instead.
Later, I did dig into my stash of kiddie goods and find a handful of wooden lemons. I also gave her wood cubes that I had painted white for her ice cubes. I thought this was super groovy. It only entertained her for oooooh about 15 minutes.
Yeah. So is it spring yet?
Other things Keely is doing: Writing the whole alphabet, uppercase and lower, repeatedly. Writing a bunch of sentences too. "I like toys." "I see a dog." using punctuation and everything. Her smart brain may burst from the dullness of her days soon. I'm trying to find some energy to step up my game for her, but yeesh, I'm beat. Milo is up by 4am most mornings grunting so loudly and he goes until about 8am. I try to sneak out of bed with him, but that usually doesn't work. Once I do get up with him he usually gives me happy faces and is all mr. sunshine hey-what's-the-problem-why-do-you-look-so-sleepy? OR he falls quietly to sleep in my arms. Stinker. But by that time we are all up and starting our day off tired. hmmm. So please accept my apologies for not blogging much or commenting or responding. I still read you all when I can.
