A chronicle for E (AKA Belly, Bean, or Adventure Girl) as she heads toward toddlerhood and beyond!

January 21- We brought a tired little girl home from daycare today. E skipped her afternoon nap, and fell asleep in the car on the way home. She stayed asleep when I took her out of her car seat. A and I were talking this evening once E was sleeping. She's managed to put herself to sleep (with no tears) every day this week. We are so glad she has learned to do this, and so happy that bedtime is no longer the struggle it once was. But, we both miss the little girl who would curl up on our chests and go to sleep, and the rocking and cuddling. We know we still have plenty of this in the future, but we are amazed at how fast she grows and changes. We've called her a big girl for months, and now parts of her daily routine are starting to be a little more like a big girl's.
We don't get a lot of snuggles around here, E is usually too busy moving around, so we treasure the ones we get.
January 20-This toy is probably about 8 inches away from the wall, and, there is nothing on the other side of it. Nothing at all. E however, has to get around it, and does she choose to go to the right, where there is plenty of space? No, she goes between the toy and the wall. Good thing she's skinny! She shuffles her way around this toy three or four times a night. She is good at shuffling, since she still hasn't figured out how to lift her legs up to go over things, she simply finds a space, turns sideways and shuffles around them.
