Deah and Tym are out enjoying the pool together at the local rec centre while I am (supposedly) tidying up the place and getting dinner together. Which means all that will happen in the 15 minutes before I *think* they are due back!
Tym has really been in rare form this week - just one fabulous mood after another. She''s been alot of fun for Jayda and for us too. She is now able to fully climb onto the couch by herself, onto the computer chair by herself, and is *this close* to going down the stairs by herself. She''ll still reach out for my hand when doing the stairs though but I am hardly helping her anymore. It''s a little sad and thrilling all at the same time to see her independence come out. She wants to help in the kitchen all the time and has become an expert at bringing things to the table when asked. Though watching her bring my beer to the table was a little weird but hey gotta start ''em young right! Her temper tantrums have abated for the time being which is VERY good. She really understands that lying on the floor and crying is not going to get her what she wants. It''s been hard being so firm with her but nipping it now will certainly make for easier times later (I hope!)
This weekend is a family weekend since Deah is home Friday and Monday. Deah and I had the morning to ourselves today and enjoyed every second of it. I forgot how productive and fun shopping can be when you''re not carrying Tym, telling her no please don''t touch that, no please don''t try to carry the $35 bottle of olive oil, no please don''t put your fingers in that little baby''s mouth, and no please don''t eat whatever you just found on the ground!
