So after a hiatus from blogging, I am back. But there is so much to catch up on that I will just start somewhere and work my way around. This is, incidentally, the way I do housework and also how I paint a wall or draw a picture. Thea Belle is now 19 months old. She is talking more every week. She is sweet and silly and mostly calm. Unfazed by most anything. Affectionate, cuddly, loving. She has a temper and opinions about what she likes. She loves shoes and animals and drawing and reading books (only the specific ones she likes, though). She adores being outside.
(She doesn't have a rash on her face -- it was right after dinner and clean up wasn't so great -- whoops!)
