2014 has begun! Ryan is studying Japanese, going in to work early and coming home late. Elliott is fully potty trained, and that means she gets a little lazy/overconfident at times. In the event that she has an accident, she will grab her crotch and yell, “NNnnnnoooOOOOOOOOOO!!!!” while the wet spot spreads down her jeans. I hope these early lessons in procrastination teach her to be more punctual than her mother. Vivian is eating pureed solids and knows two things: Peas are a disgusting abomination. Sweet potatoes are freakin’ awesome. We’ve also begun sleep-training Vivian, and she’s taking to it quite well! Nap time is sweet, sweet bliss. Bedtime is kind of annoying, but I think we just haven’t figured out her schedule yet. We’ll get there. I’m still writing part-time for the Beehive, and working full-time as a mother, my favorite job. There is nothing sweeter than morning, afternoon, and nighttime cuddles. Elliott has been reading me books and making up songs for me. Even though all of the songs she sings about me include me pooping in my “underwears,” I still find it quite endearing!
Big news for our family: we bought a van! It is so so so so wonderful. Minivans 4ever!
