It's been almost a month since I last wrote and we've passed through the turn of another new year. Last year it was all about me stepping out of various comfort zones. This year, we focus on upgrading K's happiness by hopefully finding him a new job/career. To kick this off, we spent our date night last night shopping for a new wardrobe that's more business oriented. Partially because he needs business appropriate clothing for interviews, partly because his wardrobe was becoming threadbare anyway.
In toddler news, Middie Biddie has got a case of the Empathies.
Yesterday, we gave the girls their breakfast and were sitting down to eat ours. K peeled a banana for us grown ups to eat within sight of Teeny Tiny and she started to get really upset. Of course, she already had banana on her plate, but that didn't matter. There was a banana to be had and it wasn't being given to her! Oh noes! So she starts crying, and sitting next to her is Middie Biddie. She kept looking over the TT, got a sad look on her face, and her eyes started to fill up with tears until a few escaped. This wasn't "pay attention to me!!!" kind of toddler crying, but rather a silent overwhelming sad because her sister was upset. It happened again today when I had to take the snack cup away from TT as I was putting her down for her nap.
I'm kind of torn about this because it's just so sad to see her sad, on the other hand, it's also heartwarming to see how much she cares for her sister.
I think the girls recently development leaped again, it seems a bit more communication and skills have popped up. TT's new hobby is making trails throughout the house and she's very insistent on feeding anyone she can reach.
We've rearranged some of the furniture in our house so things make more sense than they used to.
I guess I haven't been writing much because there isn't much to report! We're plugging along, starting the long process of upgrading our lives by trying to upgrade K's career, it's all just slowly moving up.
