It has been awhile. I've been on vacation visiting my lovely mother and before that was ill with a sick baby. Just in case you didn't know, being sick with a sick child is the absolute worst combination ever. Well scratch that, I'm sure having more then one child and being sick with them sick is even worse. But this was still pretty awful. Especially if your husband absolutely has to work and you have no childcare options.
Now we are back and a first birthday is coming up. Which is exciting and strange. I can't believe I have been a mother for almost a year or that Teddy will soon really be a TODDLER.
He recently started shrieking in displeasure when something doesn't go his way just to, ya know, remind me that the second year of life is all about him starting to assert his independence and figure things out for HIMSELF thank you very much. I'm guessing he is going to be quite good at the whole independence thing. Which is cool as long as he keeps laughing all the time and sharing his adorable smile with the world, we will be content to follow in his little path of destruction.
He literally never stops moving. All day. At all. Sometimes he amuses himself so much that he starts to laugh hysterically while spinning himself around on hands and knees. I have no idea who he gets this from.
Since Teddy has now flown internationally three times before his first birthday I thought I would do a travel post next. I'll post lots of tips and warnings, it should be fun. More fun then flying with a baby, that's for sure:)
