This blog is opening its eyes in a cold hospital and wiggling its toes while warmth slowly works through all the parts again. It is coming back to life! (Note: Dramatics only to describe the blog…not myself. I’m fine and definitely not in a hospital!)
I have missed blogging. How are you all? I could blog about a lot right now, but for now, I’m just going to say hi and share these cute photos from the camera my mom lent me that feature our newest obsession. This ADORABLE rocking horse!
I feel like the searching out, finding, and thrifting of this rocking horse was some sort of adult check mark. It makes me feel like I’ve reached adulthood that I was able to score such a deal and now get to reap the benefits with my dear little one! Can you believe I got it for twenty-five dollars? It even has cute little pony noises too and Eliot is just fascinated with the thing.
I always wanted a rocking horse as a child, but now my little one gets to have one!
Eliot is getting BIG, y’all! He babbles with all the inflections, says “Dada” when Daniel comes home, and screeches at me until I pay attention to him. He claps, imitates wolf calls, giggles incessantly about the dog, crawls like a maniac, pulls up on the furniture, rips books out of the bookshelf, deftly picks credit cards out of my buttoned up wallet and hides them, and LOVES to talk to Daddy on facetime while he’s at school. We’re still working on sleep training, and I honestly don’t expect him to be a good sleeper until sometime in the fall. Most of that is my fault for inconsistency (with the health problem I’ve had). We’ve discovered through experimentation that he loves songs with a beat of 120 (which Daniel informs me is 2 beats per second) mainly because he ignores all the music until songs with that kind of beat come on! The songs that fit into that criteria happen to be the credit song to Gilmore Girls, the theme song to Parks and Rec, of course, What Does the Fox Say!
We love nine months around here. It’s a lot of fun, although speaking of which, he’s awake again, so I must away!
