Can I copy your most recent post into my blog? I''m not sure I even know how, but I want your permission before I try. You created such an eye-opening analogy and I wish I could speak so eloquently about equality! Very well done!!
Sadly, the first winter in daycare is pretty harsh, sickness wise. In the long run, she won''t get as sick as some of her classmates when she enters preschool or kindergarten, building up her immune system now - but that doesn''t help you feel any better when you have a sad, little bundle you''re trying to comfort :O( Glad she''s doing better!
Well it''s time Nonno signed in and left a few words about my "Batchaglup". Both Grandma and I feel blessed not only at having Arden in our lives but the added joy she brings to each day we see her at our chocolate factory. Despite the all the sweet treats we make, nothing can compare to the sweetness she brings to us each time she smiles and giggles. We marvel at her intellegence and good nature. She makes each trying day a little easier to endure by just being Arden. So my "little bum" as you grow and eventually read these little notes from all the people who visit your site, just know that your Grandma and Nonno think the world of you and love you with all our hearts.
I''ve been reading for a while now - just can''t get enough of little Arden! You three make a beautiful family!
With Daycare- the ''sad dropoff'' is rough. Somehow I was always better with it than my hubby - he''d stay for an hour (all day if they didn''t kick him out). But even now, I have a hard time when my little guy suddenly decides it''s a sad morning - and he''ll be 4 (years) next month. As hard as it is though, often they stop almost right after you leave - I know this because they had windows I could peek in ;o) and I did. If you don''t have windows, can you call from your car to check in?
Hi Dora and Erin, I loved the Christmas card of Arden. AShe looks beautiful in the dress. She is a very lucky little girl to have two Moms that love her so much. I know her grandmothe Mary is having fun with her. Thank you for bring her into this world. Enjoy everyday. May your New Year be a very happy one. Love, Joy
I love the website! I really liked your notes about Christmas day... that was our rule too: "NEVER wake the baby!". :) Even now, we try not to wake Alina, although sometimes we have to wake her up in the morning...
HI Dora and Erin,
Arden is just beautiful. It is hard to believe that she has grown so much since the second day that I meet her. Before you know it she will be walking and talking. Enjoy this time before she has an opinion. I am really happy for you both. You truely have been blessed. I love the web site. I am going to tell Mandy and Nick so they can have one too. I know you will have a wonderful holiday. Keep the pictures coming. I love looking at them. Love, Joy
Just remember that the techniques they use to measure the babies are not always accurate. They kept telling me that Eliza would be a big baby, close to 9 pounds and convinced me we couldnt go more than a week past due. Eliza was born at a whopping 6lbs7oz.
Dora love all the gifts! Most of all I love the Furniture!! Very beautiful! Your baby room looks just like my spare room that will be the baby room. :) Love the chocolates, bet they were yummy as well as cute! ;)
