21 Months

21 Months Old

Noah, I have not written directly to you since you were 5-months old. A lot has changed since then. You are beginning to string two and three word sentences together. “Mama, come ‘ere!” “I ‘no know!” “Thank you, Daddy.” Your teacher says you have the best manners of all the children in your class. You regularly say, “please,” “thank you,” and “you’re welcome!” You’re beginning to use your imagination. You love stuffed animals. You will feed your animals, and give {Read More}

What I’ve Been Up To: In Pictures

Cutest Thing You've Ever Seen

Things are humming along in the Bluegrass Blogger house. Noah is having a word explosion. This morning, as I was loading him into the car, he said, “Bye bye, Dada,” to Robbie.

(And yes, I know I’ll visit again.) One night I had to heed some age-old advice: put him in his crib and let him scream. Meanwhile I retreated to a dark room, curled up, and cried. We were lucky to have gone {Read More}

Oh look, a blog post where I actually talk about what’s going on in my life!

Me and my sick kid

Noah was sick all of last week. We got a call from daycare on Monday that he had a fever of 101. He’s cutting several teeth, so the daycare director and I assumed the fever was due to that and decided to give him Tylenol and wait it out. Several hours later the daycare called and said his fever had gone up to 103. Robbie picked him up and I left work, then took him to the doctor. Noah’s had {Read More}
