15 months old!



Monday, our little princess turned 15 months old. I am *so* glad to have her home and see these mile-markers! Every month, in Korea, she would turn another month older and I would be just so sad. But now she's here and it's neat to see her grow and flourish right before our eyes.

Speaking of flourishing - we have officially taken a step back in the whole sleeping thing. The past three nights she has woke up at midnight and does NOT want to go back to sleep! Eye-yi-YI Tootsie, what is the deal! AND she hates naps, again. Two things that may be the culprit: teething and that she is REALLY close to walking. She has made TONS of progress in just the past week, on walking. So we just push through, and are thankful that this is just a stage and that we WILL see the other side. Sooner, rather than later, I hope.

We start school tomorrow. "What?!" You might say. "On a Thursday?!" Well, I wanted to ease them in slowly, actually - who am I kidding? I want to be eased in slowly. A toddler that has just decided that sleep isn't that important, coupled with a GREAT relaxing summer - we need to phase in the school thing sssllllllooowwwllllllyyyy. Plus I LOVE to start early and get out early - one of the perks of homeschooling. It's way hot outside anyway - taking advantage of the boredom :)

So today was our last day of summer. Boooo. But we all are looking forward to another year of learning new things and juggling life with little Tootsie in tow. It should be FUN! ;)

I LOVE the pictures - her hair is adorable! So sorry to hear about the lack of sleep. Yuck!
Good luck easing into school. It must be so hard to get going again but then again routine can be kinda nice once it's established again. Enjoy!

Walking will bring so many more fun advertures!! I'm glad you'll get to see those first steps. I hope the no sleeping will end quickly!

Good luck with school. I know my kids are ready to start (or I'm ready for them to start) whichever way you look at it. It's time!! :)

the HAIR! Unbelievable! Such a little beauty! Bella is not a good night time sleeper either, she seems to think its playtime and is actually quite the comedian around that time. :)

She seems like such a character. Hope the sleeping thing passes quickly for all of you. She's truly darling.

I still cannot get over that hair of hers! She is sooooo cute! I think the sleeping thing is just a phase she will outgrow soon. I remember my boys going through similiar phases. Hang in there!

So happy to come across your blog. We are in the process of adopting from Korea and are homeschoolers, as well. We are somewhat new to the blogging world and I am really enjoying reading other families journeys. Your daughter is beautiful. I can't wait to hear if we have a son or daughter...most likely in the spring of 2011. Take care!
