I write this on what should be the very last day of February and coincidentally Lorelei’s birthday. One year old, I am amazed at how the time has flown! Lorelei now clearly has her own personality. She is starting to repeat words (somewhat) and I’m able to tell her “no” and amazingly she listens.
This month has been a month of sickness and events. Lorelei got sick with an ear infection and was not a happy camper. She is so irritable when she is sick! What a temper, I tell ya! She was hitting people and growling at them for simply being near her. That was a rough week. We went to the doctor’s office twice, once to be diagnosed and then again when the illness spread to her skin in a rash and over her top lip in bumps as well. We thought it might be the medicine, but soon after she began to feel better.
Noah and the rest of the second grade class put on a sort of play for UNICEF. They were raising money for water tablets in a village and raised enough for a water pump. He is very proud of that. He also had his Blue and Gold Ceremony where he received his Bear badge for cubscouts. And now I am sick and have been for a few days. Thankfully, I have an understanding husband and Nora and Lorelei have played very well without my intervention.
We will be having Lorelei’s party on Sunday with the family. I am so excited! I plan to make chocolate cupcakes and decorate the house. We almost have the living area all painted. Most likely that will get done on the Saturday before; not much gets done during the week around here.
We’ve gone a few times to Gainesville, GA which reminds us of Lakeland, including our beloved Publix. It doesn’t seem completely insane to drive three hours round trip for a Publix birthday cake, right?

Until next month!
