February: Lydia turned 2! Ella started eating solids food! Grace has moved beyond dressing up her dolls and just dresses Ella. Read more.
March: Ella started rolling over. Grace spends quality time learning to cook. We spent a weekend a waterpark with Grandma & Grandpa Borneman. Lydia got her first black eye. (Definitely not her only of the year). Paul ran his first 1/2 marathon. I was warned that Lydia doesn't like to go to bed at night. Here was a conversation from 9 months ago.
Lydia's awake as I am writing this after 10 pm following countless failed attempts to put her to bed. Seriously, it can't be normal for a 2 year old to need so little sleep.
Just tonight after both Ella and Grace were soundly sleeping in their beds, Lydia comes strutting downstairs.
Mom: "It's time for bed."
Lydia: ""But I'm happy."
Mom: "You need to go to bed now, so that you can be happy tomorrow."
Lydia: "But I'm happy NOW."
The victory goes to Lydia...again.
April: I took a month long break from blogging (sorry). We spent a ton of time outside enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. We decorated Easter eggs outside with our friends, We had many Easter egg hunts, Diesel turned 5 (is that 35 in dog years)? Paul and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary!
I'll have more tomorrow.
(I meant to have pictures to go with the posts, but I switched computers and the pictures are on the old computer - and I am too lazy to go download them).
