It looks like spring finally has its toe in the door. Seventy degree days last week and a spring snowstorm this week. We're still not sure if March is going out like a lamb or is going to be leaving with the roar it came in with. There's nothing you can do about weather so I don't get my feathers in an uproar too much. Thankfully, I'm one of those people who loves to be in my little cottage (sounds much better than "small house," doesn't it?!!?) otherwise I'd be crawling out of my skin like a lot of my friends are at this point. Having a baby certainly helped with the cabin fever thing. You don't feel as guilty sitting on the couch doing nothing when you're bouncing or feeding a baby while you're doing it. I think the reason I don't get as excited about the warmer weather coming is because that means the three H's are coming too ~ hazy, hot and humid. BLAH!!!!!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again), God bless the inventor of central air!!! I just realized I'm getting a little ahead of myself.
Back to March . . .
Here's what's been going on around here.
Megan's been learning how to feed herself AND growing teeth. It's so hard to believe my baby girl is just a month and a half away from being a year old!! We've been working on putting up one finger to show us how old she's going to be but it's not going very smoothly. Although, she's starting to put one finger in her nose. I guess that's kind of making progress. : ) Still no crawling or pulling herself up. The boys were late in doing that. She does, however, lay on her belly and kicks her legs a mile a minute. She's going to be a heck of a swimmer!!
Son #1 has been accepted to several different colleges and it looks like it's going to be Hofstra that wins out. It's not too far from us but far enough that he can get a sense of being away. How we're going to pay for this is a whole other story. I know it will all work out and I try not to worry about it too much. I'm a strong believer that worrying about something is totally useless and does a body much more harm than good. I was a worrier as a child and had a lot of stomach aches. I've seen how God has always come thru for me thus far in my life and I see no reason why now would be any different. Amazing Grace. : )
We're looking forward to baseball with Son #2 and Son #3's spring time production that the third and fourth grade multi-age class puts on every year. He's been walking around the house singing tunes to give us little hints of what's to come. Something about the 1940's and soldiers but I'm sure it's not just about soldiers. I'll definitely take some pictures when the time comes!!
We've also been getting a lot done around the house. Lots of projects going on at the same time and some of them actually getting finished!! Woohoo!! I'm very happy with the progress and will have lots of pics to share soon.
Happy Spring, everybody!!!!! We should all pat ourself on the back for making it thru the last several months of cold, snow, sleet, ice, wind and everything else Mother Nature threw at us this winter!!!! I, for one, shall laugh in the face of Hazy, Hot and Humid in the coming months. And then hide behind the central air. Of course!!!! : )
Many blessings ~ Wendy
