Rachel has advised me that my recent entries have been depressing, and that some Zoralee footage is in order. Okay then! I needed a break from packing anyway. Not really, but you know.
Fortunately for prego hormonal sister, Zoralee has a lot going on. Why, she is even now standing in the yard with a measuring tape, playing a harmonica. Hey, I'll run out and get a picture. Technology is absurd.
(I got a short video too, but I'll post it later. Blogger is driving me crazy at the moment, what with automatically saving every .6 seconds, arranging pictures randomly and not as I'm placing them, and generally taking forever to get anything done. I seriously feel like I might have an anxiety attack over it.)
Here are some other shots of her recently. I believe the fun parts of having a baby are now outweighing the not-so-fun or sheer work/effort/maintenance parts. Actually, I'm just throwing that out there. I haven't analyzed whether it's true for me or not. But there is some truth to it, at least. Do other moms feel this way, especially with young ones? I'm picking up that the first couple years' experiences of the primary care-giver are quite different from the experiences of the other family and friends associated with a baby (the former being primarily times of enjoyment and bemusement). I remember a friend saying a couple years ago that her kids were just starting to be fun for her to raise. And they were maybe 3 and 6 then. Of course, she was a single mom and didn't have stellar support.
Okay, Zoralee just pulled her pants down and peed in the driveway, only barely wetting one pant leg. How awesome is that?! The first time she did it, about a month ago, I thought my heard would explode of pride. She has slowly been improving the splash and spill factors. That's a whole 'nother post, but I am happy to report that we're potty trained! And I do mean "we;" EC is totally a group effort! I am really excited to blog about my take on EC now that we're about done, but alas, no time more today. Enjoy the pics.
