It’s been far too long since I’ve been here, and there’s too much to tell.
Besides the 20+ inches of snow we received on Friday/Saturday, Little Miss Tater has FINALLY moved from a laying-on-tummy-position to sitting upright all by herself! Yes. Okay – I was informed that she’s been doing that for awhile, but
A) she hadn’t done that on the floor (only on soft surfaces), and
B) I hadn’t seen it for myself (so it wasn’t official since I, in fact, am the official recorder of Tater’s life).
Miss Curly has been a handful – sweet & cuddly one minute, like a hurricane the next. Please tell me this is normal for a 2 1/2 year old… She has spilled every cup of coffee (“Mmmm – I like Kop-pee”) that wasn’t put far enough back on the counter; she filled the toilet with hand towels (apparently they needed to be washed); and she bit Tater and left a bruise on her hand – just to name a few incidents over the course of the weekend…
And then there’s the locking Nana & Papa into the house so they couldn’t leave (after their brief visit on their return home from South Carolina celebrating their 40th Anniversary together); saying after her prayers “I lub you sooooooo much” when she is settled into bed and honking our noses “honk-honk” after her bedtime prayer; and the way she spontaneously reaches over and rubs my cheek, looks me in the eye and says, “I lub you mommy…”
Roy & I are facing some major life changes and decisions, and anyone who reads this that feels led to pray for us – we would sincerely appreciate it. We have a lot on our plates – a lot on our hearts & minds – and we’re praying for a lot of direction and guidance before making any impetuous decisions.
