Times are busy friends, harder than ever to stop by and write something, yet I have so much to say. I think I will write a little update for now on how the kiddos are doing.
V just turned 4! Hard to imagine. Interestingly, in the weeks since her birthday she has been processing a lot of heavy stuff and it has made her down and anxious sometimes, it seems. She has had a lot of questions about birth, death and adoption. Not exactly light and airy topics. Even when we do have lighter topics, she pretty much is nonstop talking which has been a bit of a challenge for her introverted mom to handle, ha. She’s such a sweet and sensitive and aware kid whose brain is constantly going.🙂
W is well on her way to turning 1?! 11 months old next week. She is still getting up 3 times a night. She has really really epic separation anxiety. During the day, she is constantly busy, now that she is a walker. She doesn’t know how to sit and play. She loves to go after everything dangerous- trying to climb up on things, reaching for cords, sneaking into the bathroom and throwing things in the toilet. I am pretty worn out, ha, from all the daytime shenanigans and then the nights aren’t exactly restful to boot. But she is a very happy baby and man, she is a tenacious, expert level problem solver.
It’s so true what they say… the days are long and the years are short. My life feels like a total blur since we became a family of four. But a lucky and happy blur.🙂
