We're back!

So sorry for such a blog break!  I have been super exhausted lately and have been napping when bug does.  This means I do not get much done!  The good news is that this is only temporary, because when I get a little further into my second trimester I should get a second wind.  The blog may take a little bit of a turn with a new baby on the way, but I am excited for what's in store! 

Remember the post about turning the spare bedroom into Bug's playroom?  Well, the day after I converted it to a playroom, we found out I was pregnant, lol!  I didn't even get any pictures of it as a true playroom because we switched some things around recently.  Bug is in a big girl bed (it's still on the floor for now), and we moved a dresser into the new baby's room and moved some shelves into her room for her toys.  She has been playing so well on her own lately!  It's been fantastic, especially since I have been soo tired and unmotivated lately.

I want to brag for a second of Bug's latest accomplishments (I have too many friends with kids similar to Bug's age, so I feel bad bragging a lot on fb).  So far Bug is able to count to 10 (she often forgets 4 and 5), she can name letters: B, D, F, G, H, I, K, L, M, O, P, R, S, T (most of the time), W, and Z.  It all started one day while we were playing with her alphabet puzzle. I named all of the letters for her because she showed an interest in them.  I mainly focused on the letters F, K, R, and I at first because we connected them to names she knows in real life.  A few days later, she went back to the puzzle and when asked, she remembered those letters!  She is like a sponge and it's so much fun to watch!  She has started memorizing some of her books that we read often to her.  She sings a lot of songs now (with plenty of the words missing, lol) too. 

I will try my best to post soon with some of the things I have planned!
