As of a few days ago, Middie Biddie is officially a walker! She finally broke through her fear and started walking all around.
Unfortunately, now that she's had a couple of days of properly falling on her butt and learning that it's not so bad, she's lost a lot of that fear that kept her safe and has become a climber. Yup, figured out how to climb onto the couch today - the couch we use to block off the router, modem, lamp, and a variety of other things I don't want babies reaching.
I think we'll be spending the next week doing a whole new level of baby proofing.
In other news, I cleaned up more puddles today than I ever wanted to clean up. It started with finding a pee puddle right outside the litterbox. While I was cleaning that up, I heard a small crash behind me to find that one of the girls had thrown her milk cup to the floor and the lid had popped off. Swell. So I finished cleaning up urine and got to work on the milk. At the next meal, she did the same thing to yet another cup of milk, and I found that the cat had peed on a towel in the bathroom. I'm so glad we got rid of the carpet and now have easily cleanable floors!
I know I complain a lot, but the fact is I'm a lot happier than I've been in other stages of my life. Now that the girls are older, they're funny! I spend a significant portion of my day laughing like I never have before. This parenting thing has a lot more ups and downs than non-parenting, but the ups are a lot higher.
