Bring it on, Spring!

Every year, the time change surprises and annoys me. I'm ready for it to be done with already. Surely we could function just fine without changing our clocks twice a year. Would it really make that big a difference to people to just keep 7am where it is? Cows and such wouldn't know the difference, I'd bet you a dollar. That said, if changing the clocks makes Spring hurry up and get here, I'm willing to give this whole time-change thing another try. I've got the planting itch.

Speaking of trying things... I have some "Oikos" in front of me. Greek yogurt is WAY thicker than the yogurt I'm used to. Very odd. It tastes a little goat-y. Did I buy goat yogurt?? wth... it doesn't SAY it's made with goat milk but there's a distinctive upper-rear palate zest... Oh well. I'll live. At least it has blueberries in it. :)

Lily is 10 months old today. TEN! What happened to my tiny baby?? (Yes, I said it again. I will probably continue to say it, like every other mother, every 6 months for the rest of my natural days.) She's in what I call the perfect baby zone. Still roly-poly and cuddly but also learning how to snatch food, clap her hands and cackle at everything. 2 months till the big 1 and I'm getting excited. Also, starting to miss being pregnant but I'm sure that'll pass. All I need is a good session of both girls crying and maybe a muddy disobedient dog and I'll be SO glad to be done having babies.

Ugh... I have blueberry seed or skin stuck in my teeth and it's not coming out. How are we even aware of something that small being stuck in the crevice of a molar, anyway? It seems impossible... get a tiny seed stuck in your teeth and you'll know it but if your glasses are on your head, you'll continue to scour the house for 'em.

Soggy Mondays aren't so bad.

This morning, Izzy woke up at 7 like normal but after a bath and some snuggling, she went back to sleep. This NEVER happens. I was going to wake her up at 9:15 but she didn't respond to me stroking her hair so I let her lay there a while longer. I think Pullo must have thought I'd given up too soon because he went to check on her while I tried to get Lily to lay down and I heard cackling and 'Oh, Pullo, you so silly!' coming from our room.

The verbal skills of a 2.5 year old are always changing and impressive. This morning's fun sentence was "I did wake up and I want to get down and find and put on my tutu!"

Watching "Sid the Science Kid" with Izzy and the dog on the show isn't even a little bit anatomically correct. And they call this educational television. At least "Dinosaur Train" had an episode segment that was all about poop. Izzy thought that was pretty fascinating.

Lily is pulling up on everything these days. I'm not ready for her to be walking but it's exciting to see her reaching all these fun milestones.

Yesterday, Chad said something about having lots more kids. Izzy didn't take too kindly to that and told him "No, just two kids. 1 kid, 2 kids." I guess she figures she's sharing the spot light plenty these days.

No Gold for Team USA. :( Stinking Canada... I knew it would probably work out this way but it's still disappointing. Oh well. At least Brenden Morrow brings a shiny medal back to Dallas. Partial bragging rights are better than none at all! :)
