We survived to her first birthday! 🙂
So much has been happening, it’s hard to keep up. Eden is saying key words — like mommy, daddy, and bubba (which is baby-talk for bottle, it’s not what she calls me). She’s walking and crawling up stairs (if we open the gate at the bottom).
And she’s a firecracker. She hates having her diaper changed; if she’s not adequately distracted, she’ll squirm everywhere and cry/scream. If she wants to get up (or down), she’ll let you know — usually loudly, sometimes by arching and thrashing. She screams at Serena if she can’t get something she wants, and she’s been known to pull Serena’s hair. She tends to get away with it (we’ll try to get her to stop, but I don’t think she gets it). When Serena pushes her down (and makes her cry) Serena usually gets in trouble (and understands that she’s in trouble). It’s hard to be fair, because Serena should know better (at least I think she should — we’ve told her so many times), but she gets whiny when Eden is in her face and she can’t do anything to stop her.
I would write more, but it’s time for bed. I’ve realized I’m not enough of a writer to keep this blog up to date. When I get to the end of a long day, and the girls are in bed, I don’t have the energy or the concentration to sit down and write. I’d rather surf the internet or play with tech toys (web sites or programming new languages like Ruby). I’ll try to write more, but I’m not making any promises…
