Toddler Adventures ~ 29 1/2 months

The toddler adventures have been running full steam around here, even if I am still sick. (I just cannot seem to kick this sinus infection!) Monday was great with the Enginerd home (in and out of the garage working on projects) and we got to see several foxes traipsing through the yard. Tuesday was especially eventful as in the morning AppleBlossom and I discovered that a brilliantly red Cardinal is building a nest in the Crape Myrtle right outside the nursery window. (I’ll try to get a photo). This is very exciting to me, and I hope that it will stay and be a successful nest and maybe we’ll get to see baby birds a while later.

Then later in the morning, while in the kitchen through the dining area widow into the backyard we saw deer! Tons of deer, an entire herd of deer. There were like twelve. AppleBlossom was so excited and was able to count them over and again as they’d disappear behind trees and reappear. I tried to take some photos, but they did not turn out very well because the camera kept wanting to focus on the screen of the porch instead of the deer beyond.

Naptime seems to be getting a little more regular when we have school and a movie in the morning. At least for AppleBlossom. I know that OrangeBlossom would be so much happier if she’d just fall asleep in the crib, and then be able to wake up and play. Yet right now she refuses. Either has to nurse to sleep, or be in the swing. Then she’ll sleep solidly, but wake up and then after being changed to a dry diaper will want to play in the crib. Alas.

Recently I’ve been doing a good bit of organizing. Even if it is only electronically. I now am on Pinterest and I’ve been working pretty hard on getting some good boards together. Then also, I’ve not got a Goodreads shelf with Online Story Time books. Each one has a link to wherever the story time is located and I’m pretty excited to be able to find so many, often read by the author themselves!
