Long Time No Chat
Wow, I think this has been the longest stretch I’ve gone without blogging since I started blogging. I blame the stellar Wasatch ski season, my gargantuan home construction and being the mom of a one year old. Does that buy me a hall pass? I still have 60 hours of programming to watch on my DVR! On the bright side, I’ve painted the new spaces and have moved onto purchasing a office desk and appliances for the downstairs mom-in-law space and Sage has said her first word beyond Mama and Daddy. She can say “MORE”. Yup; her very first word; ironic isn’t it? A true Adler. She also loves bagels, takes huge spills without a tear shed, and laughs and babbles up a storm. She’s walking fast but not running yet. Signing more words- ball, baby, bath, socks, shoes, diaper- but more importantly she ‘gets it.’ When we wake in the morning, she picks up her toys before we leave her room, I ask her where her binky is and she looks for it and finds it, she tells me what she would like to eat, she grabs her ankles and lifts up her butt for the diaper change, stops fussing before I count to ‘5’ (9 times out of 10 :)). Our baby is growing up! She’ll be 21 months on the 12th so I suppose it’s to be expected. Hoping the “terrible twos” will pass us like Elijah.
