While playing in the house, Nora often likes to declare “I’m going.” She has some belongings as if she’s going on a trip of some sort and she likes to say “bye bye” Meg and I say “bye bye” “have a good trip” “don’t be gone long.” She walks a few steps and then exclaims “I’m back” which is usually followed by some running toward us and some hugs and kisses. It’s very fun and adorable. Pretty much everything she does during the day is pretty adorable. Currently her bedtime routine is not quite as pleasant but it clearly shows her continued development into a little person of her own.
I noticed today that I haven’t posted here in over a year and while part of me is not that sad, a part of me is. I realize that at times I have enough keeping me busy and writing a blog post clearly isn’t the priority, but I know people enjoy to hear about the trials and tribulations of Team Knodl up here in Minnesota. People can always watch pictures on flickr and videos on youtube, but sometimes it’s nice to hear a little story. So I’m going to try and stop by here a little more often. I’m setting a goal of one post a month so don’t get too excited, but I am “back” (If you were reading above, now is when you come running and give me hugs 🙂
Team Knodl Update: Since our last post, both Meg and I have accepted promotions at work. Things have become busier and more stressful but both of us really enjoy the work we’re doing. Nora is doing great, both at Step by Step and at the feeding clinic (Nora’s therapist Kim has been great and Nora is moving slowly towards eating different foods.) and I think she’s looking forward to re-starting swimming again. We’ve started this year with ambitious house goals (Entryway floor, Kitchen Cabinets, and bathroom floor) but we should have them completed by June 27th when we want all of Meg’s friends to come and help celebrate her 40th Birthday with us. Connect with me on facebook for more info.
Take care everyone and keep in touch,
