Peanut butter burnout…

And I’m not talking about me!  It’s finally happened; Linlee is sick of peanut butter.  I guess two years of eating it for every meal has finally take its toll.  She hasn’t eaten any peanut butter in about three weeks now.  This isn’t actually a good thing.  While we can get the occasional grilled cheese …

Home, the potty & swim lessons!

We are back home.  Easy drive across the state.  It was actually snowing when we left Spokane (this is global warming?), but nothing blizzard-like.  Linlee is the best little traveler!  She sang to herself in the back seat most of the way, except for when she took a little nap.  We never even had to …

The Memorial

My dad’s memorial was so very nice.  It was the perfect closure.  We were surrounded by many, many friends and relatives (around 200, I think) who came to remember him.  There were beautiful flowers, good food and some fun speeches.  My throat actually hurts this evening from talking to so many people who attended.  Because …

Quick Post

Busy day…  Here is a picture my aunt took of us last night; my mom, Linlee and I were all cooking: This morning we discovered a problem in my mom’s kitchen ceiling (the paint was peeling away and nothing appeared to be behind it): You probably can’t tell, but it’s an old wasps nest!  No …

Linlee and Mémé

Mom and I tried to take Linlee for a walk this afternoon.  (Yes, that is big pile of leftover snow behind Linlee and my mom.)  Linlee isn’t much of a walker.  (Note to Rob; the next time we go for “a walk,” Linlee will need to actually walk part of the way instead of riding …

Update

Linlee slept through the night last night!  Phew!  She was up at 6:30, but I was well rested, so that wasn’t a problem.  I’ll try to get some pictures of Linlee and Mémé today for another post this evening.

Not again!

Last night did not go as well as our first night here.  I had let Linlee take a late nap yesterday, which was a huge mistake.  It’s so hard not to let her sleep when she is acting tired and unreasonable, but I have to remember that I will pay dearly for it if I …

Tuesday

Our drive across the state yesterday was smooth and easy.  Rob will be joining us on Friday.  I started off the trip by asking Linlee if she wanted an apple.  She responded with, “No, I want chips.”  I am getting such a kick from her increasing ability to communicate.  Even a month ago, she could …

This and That

Fourth day in a row with Linlee going on the potty.  Yahoo!  The only thing is, she is only going when we put her on the potty.  She has yet to tell us that she needs to go, or to wander into the bathroom herself.  But hey, progress is progress!  She just seems to be …

She’s finally ready…

TO BE POTTY TRAINED!!!  The past three days in a row Linlee has peed in the potty each time I’ve put her on it.  Hooray! Unfortunately, she and I are headed to Spokane this week.  I’ll keep working on it with her while we are there, but it will sort of have to be on …
