Only 2 more days...

Nora will be 2 years old on Thursday. Wow. Time flies when you are at doctor's appointments, early intervention classes, speech therapy, doctor's appointments..... She is such a big girl. I am so thankful that she is where she is today. If I look back a year ago, she wasn't walking, making eye contact, or smiling that much. Now she is climbing on everything, falling a lot too, getting into every door, cabinet, drawer and crevice she can find. She copies sounds, can clap, likes to giggle, CRIES WHEN I LEAVE. That is HUGE. She has never ever ever had any seperation anxiety or stranger fears. I was so happy when she acutally cried when I left. I kept waving at her and she cried even more. I was jumping for joy. It means she actually knows who I am and gives a shit that I am leaving her. I am bawling as I write this because it is such a big deal to me.

I have been very emotional lately. It must be that time of the month. I also have been trying to figure out where Emma will go to school next year for kindergarten. Sounds easy huh? well it's not. The Seattle school district let's parents choose the schools you want to go to. We can tour the schools, meet the teachers, and then decide 1st choice, 2nd etc. This is torture for me. Having actually been a kindergarten teacher myself, you would think it would be a piece of cake but it is not at all. The Seattle school district does not have the best track record and I am panicking on picking out the school best for Emma. And she will only have turned 5 in Aug. so she'll be the youngest kid in the class.... Alex is traveling this week so I am going to have to make the decision for us. Grrr... I am not good with decisions.

My mom was supposed to fly in yesterday but her flight go cancelled and now she won't be here until tonight. That means 2 days from her trip were wasted. Emma was so excited and I had to burst her bubble twice. So hopefully she'll get out of Chicago today and be here when Emma wakes up tomorrow.

Thanks for checking in
