Structure and Planning

OK...Starting off the New Year on a different note. Structure, schedule's, planning ahead, not really my thing. But it seems with so much on my plate I need some kind of schedule just to help me remember what it is I want to accomplish each day. (much less what I need to accomplish) Sophie is of course at the top of that list. Being with me 24/7 gets her lots of mommy time....but not enough quality mommy time. That is my number one WANT. To make sure she is learning and having fun doing it. And yes there's work....and things will be relaxed enough to handle that. Just need to keep focused. I'll continue to post once or twice a month, but that will be the extent of it. Short little peaks into the window of our life...Speaking of which, Sophie is really picking up on things. Each day learning new animals or shapes. We are having a hard time with colors, but I haven't worked on it diligently enough. So guess that's mommy's fault. Oh yeah, she can count to five. "one, two, threeeeeee, FIVE!" gotta squeeze four in there girl! And she works "please" like a pro! There's the January 2010 update:)

Pulled out the old scrap book today. I really need to get back to work on that. Looking at how much Sophie has grown over the past year is astonishing. That shy little baby face has turned into a very friendly and busy little toddler. And wow what a busy little girl she's been. Birthday parties, trips to the beach, I think we went to like three Easter egg hunts last year and that's not including the one we had at our house. She loved her Tumbling Tots class and we'll start back this week with that. December was just so crazy busy that I saw no need to add anything extra to it. I think I could use some B12 shots for a little energy booster:)
Now that Christmas has come and gone it seems I'm having a harder time keeping up with Sophie's "stuff" in the living room. She doesn't want to play in her room. She drags it all in there. I don't blame her. That's where everybody else is after all. And she just has to be in the center of it. I'm looking forward to the new year and all the new twists and turns that come with it. Seems like things are always changing or there's always something new I want Sophie to see, try, or do. Wonder if she'll ever know or understand how deep I love her. I want her to experience life to the fullest. I guess she will get it one day....when she becomes a mother.
