Blog the Sprog

It's a very weird thing, making a person. I honestly never thought I'd do it, but here we are... so I'm gonna tell it like it is. It's a very scary and exciting time. Yikes!

I've been thinking that I really must pick this blog up again. Amy is now 7 years old and it's all starting to feel... fleeting.

Oh dear... I've neglected my blog again

So Amy's now 3 years old and so much has happened since I last wrote anything here that I don't even know where to begin!

She's very entertaining, often frustrating and teaches me life lessons on a daily basis. She also has a great sense of humour and cracks me up all the time.

People keep saying, "Well at least you survived The Terrible Twos." These are people who either don't have kids, or theirs are not yet 3 - as I'm finding 3 MUCH harder than 2 ever was.

At 2, she threw a few tantrums and demanded a lot of attention, but at 3 she's often like a demon with PMS! And so manipulative! It's exhausting. No wonder I don't have time to blog...

Out of the mouths of babes...

Amy said the sweetest and most profound thing the other night!

First, some context:
She LOVES puzzles and when she's doing them often she ends up sitting on one of the pieces, so she reaches a point where the puzzle is almost done but there are no pieces left to add that she can see, and she starts looking around saying, "Missing pieces! Missing pieces!"

Then the other night Justin was out and I was putting her to bed.

As she lay there in the dark she said, "I want daddy."

So I said, "Daddy's out but he'll be home later."

After a few seconds of silence she says, "Missing pieces."

Amy sings Happy Birthday!

This is quite old (from April) but I found it again today and thought it was too cute not to post!
