The Weekly Peanut, Issue 93

D was DEFINITELY better this week than last.  We're still dealing with a lot of "I can't"s, but we've learned to just barrel through them.  Mostly. Sometimes. Ugh.

Daphne came home from school with HOMEWORK last week O_O.  More accurately it was a ziplock baggie filled with uncooked colored pasta noodles, sequins, rhinestones, a toilet paper roll, and instructions to "decorate a turkey with your little one while singing this song and bring it in Friday."  Uhm... Uhh... 

The Weekly Peanut, Issue 81

There are times when I sit back and watch my kid in action, and on occasion I am struck by a terrifying thought:

Dear lord, I am raising a sociopath.

Then I remind myself that she is a toddler, and that all toddlers believe themselves to be Gods of their own tiny universes.  I'm going to hold off on the diagnosis for a few more years yet.

  Daphne ended last week with her 18 month check up at the doctor.  Due to a work overlap, I had to reschedule and ended up seeing a new doctor, Dr. Gellert.  Dr. Gellert was nice enough, but she was running SO. FAR. BEHIND. We were in the exam room for almost 45 minutes while my sweet angelic (cough) toddler gradually devolved into a turd.   Either way, I was too proud of my growing peanut to be too put out by it.  D is firmly on the 75th percentile for length! She grew almost 3 inches these past 3 months (most kids slow down this second year).  She only gained about 1.5 lbs though (wouldn't we all like to be 3 inches taller and only gain 1.5 lbs... *sigh*).  "Tall and thin, we should all have this problem!" said Dr. Gellert.  I lifted my eyebrows and said she definitely didn't get it from my side of the family.
