Maddie and Riley had their two-year-old well child appointments today. They passed with flying colors. The pediatrician said, "At this age, I want to see children put together two-word phrases. These two speak in paragraphs." It's true. Maddie is 90th percentile for weight (30 lbs. 10 oz.), height (35.75 inches), and head size. Riley is 75th for all (29 pounds even, 35.5 inches). Go, babies!
Riley has been going to bed with no fuss and sometimes sleeping through/sometimes waking up once and requiring only a moment's soothing to go back to sleep. I'm knocking on lots of wood, but hallelujah.
So You Think You Can Dance is on tonight! It's still no Idol, but I am pretty into it. My favorites: Twitch & Kherington, Joshua & Katee, Courtney & Gev. And Will. Will is hot. Oh, and how could I forget Mark & Chelsie?
The twins are obsessed with the park. Any park will do. They love parks. When I pick them up from daycare, they beg to go to the park. I love watching them explore and learn.
I'm continuing to feel calmer these days since the anger realization. On the flip side, I also feel boring, tired, and slow. I guess that's preferable to strung-out and edgy. My evenings with the twins have had a relaxed ease about them that has really been refreshing. It's not all unicorns and rainbows, for sure, but it's just more mellow and roll-with-the-punches. Want to go to the park after school? Sure! Want to read an extra story tonight? Why not! Want to eat pretzels and frozen fruit bars for dinner? Why the hell not!
It's hot out. Really hot. But I have central air.
