I think we finally have gotten the hang of the new routine. Taylor started school the same week that Parker started a new babysitter. We had been with our old babysitter for 3 1/2 years (since Taylor was 8 weeks) and it was a little sad to leave, but it was so time. Things have happened lately that just had me questioning what they were doing all day and with Taylor starting school I really didn't want Parker going alone. Our new sitter is great. She talks a lot is my only complaint, but she plays with the kids, they do art projects everyday (even the little ones) and she makes very healthy food for them too. Today is the first time ever that I have put my arms out to Parker and she shook her head "no" at me! Ugh! I couldn't believe it!
Typically one of us takes Parker to the babysitter and one takes Taylor to school. It works out well unless I have to work early or Jason is out of town. Taylor seems to be really liking school. I really like her teachers and it seems she's doing lots of fun activities. I feel like she's in her teen years already though because every day I ask her how school was and she says, "fine", then I ask what she did today and she says "I don't know?" Okay....? Such a girl!
Parker is trotting all around the house! Jason and I immitate her walking....we're kind of mean, cuz its really like we're making fun of her! She walks with her belly sticking out and waddles. When she has her little shoes on she sounds like a tap dancer! We laugh, but its really becuase its just so cute! She still doesn't want to say too many things, but she does some cute stuff....like babbling on the phone (or remotes..lol), clapping, playing peek a boo, giving kisses, its such a fun age! Tonight she built blocks and had them about 10 high! I was proud of that!
I can't believe it is October in a coulple days! This weekend is the Lewis and Clark Half-Marathon. Mommy hasn't trained so well this time! I was lucky to get a 6, 8, and 10 mile run in, but not much more than that! I did 6 this morning and I think thats my last one before sunday. The other big event of the weekend is Trailhead's opening day of Pumpkin beer! We're going for Happy Hour Friday and we may be back Sunday since the marathon ends right there on the riverfront. We'll see how it goes! Taylor loves coming to mommy's races and seeing me get a medal. You know I win every race! haha! Thats what she thinks! Fine with me....we won't burst her bubble just yet!
