two turned three::three going on four
I can hardly believe it when I think over the years. Three seemed to pass so quickly and yet here we are. Alena turned three yesterday and as we went through the day with family celebrating I was struck by just how much she has changed over this past year. She is so eager to explore and try thing on her own. Next week she will be a Goldfish in swimming and is eagerly looking forward to getting into the pool alone with out mom [I am looking forward to not getting into my bathing suit]. She loves riding her bike while we walk to the farmers market and to the park to play.
The stories she has started to tell are entertaining and she can't get enough of her books on record. And on and on... These past few months have been wonderful getting time to really spend time with her. As I realize that September is coming soon and that she will be off at pre-shool part of the day, I want to spend more and more time absorbing everything she does.
By the first of the year the whole dynamic of our family will be changing as we are getting ready to welcome number four to our family.
Yes that's right I am a little over three months along and just out of the tired/nausea all day long feeling. It has been a little different this time around with a Toddler turned Kid who no longer enjoys taking a nap. We are all excited to experience our first Dr. appointment together. Alena loved listening to the baby'sx heart beat and now wants to talk to it daily. I have a feeling the next 5 plus months are going to be a bit long for this little girl.
Now that I have a bit more energy these days I hope to post a bit more often. I was looking back at this year and this is only my 12th post so far. Not quick the best track record for the third year of this blog but who is counting. Since the last post we have taken at least three more photo booth images. Maybe that will be the next post...
