Day 271

Life is speeding by. My little go go go girl will be 9 months old in 2 days. She has a tooth; she claps her hands; she does "So Big" almost on command. She loves to wrestle with Maggie and loves even more to watch Maggie giggle and laugh. She really really wants to walk and I think she will be very very soon. She love the dogs and squeals at the site of them. She is such a happy baby. I won't be able to say that much longer. In a short 94 days, we will have a pre-toddler (in daycare terms) on our hands.

Happy Valentine's Day

Nothing says Valentine's like love between sisters! I'm so happy Maggie and Jessie enjoy each other so much. I know there will come a time that Maggie will find her little sister annoying and Jessie may find her big sister, well, whatever it is little sisters find big sisters. But we will always be able to look back on these days and remember the laughter and smiles at the mere sight of the other.

A visit to the Eye Doctor, in Maggie’s words

eyedr01 “Well, they checked my eyes if they are healthy.  Well, I didn’t need any glasses. I had to read something. I had to read, I have to see cake, a motorcycle, what else? Hmmm.  I got it!  Hmm, I got one more!  A hand! And a bird!  I have to cover an eye, but the first one, my mom has to cover my eyes, but just one eye. First this eye then the other eye.  Then, I have to check if they are good or not good in the other room. He put drops in my eye.  It feels a little itchy.  Well, they do help my eyes.  And what else do they help? They help the doctor see behind my eye.  We went to McDonalds after the eye doctor.eyedr02

He did it first.  Cover my eyes.  I get to do it too.  I sit in a big chair. I make how the Es were and they were different.  They were some normal.  They were some upside down!  I mean they were some on the back and also on the threes they kinda look like an E upside down.  Then it was over.”



Maggie did a very good job at the eye doctor!  He said her eyes are very healthy, with a slight astigmatism in each eye, which could indicate a need for glasses in the future.  He said she doesn’t need to come back for a couple years unless we notice she’s having some problems.  She was disappointed the other day when we told her she probably wouldn’t get glasses today, but didn’t even mention it today.

Groundhog Day!

Maggie had homework last night: to find out whether or not the Groundhog saw his shadow this morning. When she got up, Rocky took her downstairs to check on the computer. She happily ran upstairs to tell me the Groundhog didn't see his shadow and "that means spring is just around the corner!" As we were driving to daycare and work, she told us "When the sun comes out, it will melt all the snow to water. drip drip drip."
