Still Here

Hello- it's been awhile! We are all alive and well, I've just been lazy about blogging lately. I've even gotten behind on my daily reads which rarely happens. Let's see...what have we been up to?

Poppy started ballet lessons. I've been looking forward to putting her in ballet lessons since she was born (really before). Ballet and ice skating. She wants nothing to do with ice skating, but so far she seems very excited about ballet. She is the smallest, shortest one in her class. You can barely see her holding the teacher's right hand:

After I took this picture I had to go inside the studio and sit with her because, as usual, it took her some time to warm up to the idea. She eventually had fun and inquires about her next class every day. I will keep working on the ice skating- maybe next year!

Poppy has been home sick with a cough and fever for the past three days:

Poor thing. She's feeling better today. She might have even been okay at school today, but it's such a hard call to make at 7am. Yesterday we were on the way to school in the morning and she had a little coughing spell so I decided to turn around and keep her home. She was a good sport about it- she loves school and I could tell she was disappointed. She'll be very excited to see all of her friends next week.

Little Miss Chloe is finally eating. She has been for about a month or so. We're still waiting for teeth. She is starting to feel heavier in my arms (she's 15 pounds). Until now she's always seemed like such a little pip-squeak, but she feels much more substantial now. Especially in her carseat/carrier. She's reached the point of being heavy. After this trip out of town, we're giving her carseat to a friend. Chloe will start using Poppy's and we will get Poppy a new high back booster.

She is also on the verge of crawling. She gets around, but she can only go backward and I often find her in spots like this:

Cue R.E.M.:

It's the end of the world as we know it...

And we feel fine:)

We are taking our first flight as a family of four tomorrow. We're going to see my brother and his family in North Carolina. He's home from Afghanistan for R&R. Poppy is looking forward to playing with her cousins and it will be nice to experience some milder temperatures, if only for a few days. I'll be back next week:)
