note: Please excuse the blurriness of some of the photos. It's hard to take good pics of a toddler on the move!
I love Erin, and she can be so much fun (as well as completely frustrating, but right now I'm focusing on the good stuff!)
Inspired by the day at the Children's museum, I bought some foam stickers and markers to have coloring time with Erin. She enjoys it so much.
She is such a little personality now. I love watching her emerge into the person she's going to be. I think I have finally accepted that she's a little girl now and not a baby. Is it normal to be sad when your baby grows up? I've tried to be excited about this next stage in her life instead of missing "baby Erin," and I think it's going well. Having a new baby helps of course...lol.
She's becoming so opinionated, and while sometimes it's quite aggrivating, most of the time I just enjoy seeing more of her personality.
For instance: she loves doing everything herself. Especially loves eating a whole apple. She doesn't like it as much if I cut it up first (which is my preferred way of eating it), especially not if it's a granny smith. Which is why we ended up with small bits of apple on our floor today.
Quite often I find myself laughing as she does something new or gets excited about something I would consider mundane. I'm so lucky to have her, and I thank the Lord for her every day.
