I know it has been a long time since a new post went up. It has been crazy busy with a one-year-old girl now. Time has flown by. Eloise has learned so many things since then. She is walking everywhere. She is most consistently saying dada, knows mama, and is working on other words but in general, loves making noise. She understands when you ask her if she is all done after eating or if she wants more. She has been getting her molars and canines. Eloise loves to clap, laugh and explore around the house. Eloise recognizes when the song “If You’re Happy and You Know It” comes on and will clap and stomp along. She also puts her arms up for the rain in “Itsy Bitsy Spider.”
Eloise is always reading. She enjoys picking out books and bringing them to us to read together. Eloise loves to read by herself, along with our bedtime reading.
She is growing too fast!
Since the last update, I have also started a new job. I now work at a chemical company editing pesticide labels. I love it and am happy to be there. Other than all that, things are the same.
So I have been trying to decide how to jump back into all this. I have many ideas for posts because so much has happened. I also want to get back into the book reviews to provide real thoughts for you potential readers. There is also a product review page so that as parents you can have a one-stop shop for any books, toys, kitchen tools, organizational tools, etc. and know that the reviews are true (You can’t always believe those reviews on the Internet!).
Most importantly, this page was began from my perspective as a father. While that is all well and good, I am not the only parent of Eloise. Sarah is just as important (if not more!) as the mom and she will be writing posts as well. This website is about parental perceptions and any wisdom we can share with or receive from others is what we want this site to be about.
For now, that is all but there will be plenty of posts popping up soon!
