Two years!

Two years ago today, our sweet LeahBug was born, two months early, via crash c-section on account of the toes she tried to dip into the world before jumping out. She was a miracle then and she is a miracle now – the strongest person I know, and the happiest and most genuine. This child amazes us every day and I look forward to every lesson she teaches us. Happy birthday, Leah!

Teeth and twos!

Hey, so guess who is turning TWO YEARS OLD on Friday?

What? How did that happen??

Yep. Ms. Bug will be two years old in just a few days. I can’t believe it – the hospital days feel like they were ages ago but somehow also feel like they were just yesterday. Not sure how that makes sense, but it is what it is!

So, where did we leave off? Leah LOVES school but has also been out sick for a week. She still has the cough from the respiratory infection she had in March, and it is sounding worse and worse. Poor kid! She will be getting tubes placed in her ears in June; she has fluid in both ears. We hope this will improve her progress in language development as she should be able to hear better. We hope.

Leah is learning all sorts of new things, and is starting to develop preferences. For example, when she bangs blocks together she wants them to be the same color (in the next few days I will post a video demonstrating this), and she has a favorite book (“The Very Hungry Caterpillar”), which she can listen to as many consecutive times as we can tolerate reading it, plus one. And, AND, she has SIX teeth! Two front teeth and four molars! The front teeth came in last, because Leah operates on her own timetable. And let me just tell you – if you thought Leah couldn’t get any cuter, you didn’t envision her with teeth.
