The Twelfth Month

Time flies.

Need I say more?

Maggie's first year of life went very slowly for me. In stark contrast, Pepper's first year has, well, where has it gone?

The Eleventh Month

Just when I think our life will slow down for a bit, it does quite the opposite. We spent this month recovering from traveling and from being sick, spending lots of time watching the road construction in front of our house, and trying to spend as much time outside without getting heat stroke. This is my favorite time of the year and clearly the girls enjoy it also!

The Tenth Month

This was an exciting month as we took a semi-last minute trip to Pennsylvania to visit my family. For many of them, this was the first time meeting Pepper. Besides both girls getting sick and the stress of meeting a constant stream of new people, we had a blast!

The Ninth Month

Ah. My heart is at peace.

We have survived yet another long Minnesota winter and can finally awaken from our dormant states. The warm sun. Trees full of luscious, green leaves. The smell of a dewey morning. The brilliant sound of songbirds, the excitement of a tiny seedling emerging...

All these things awaken me to the fact that summer is soon here. Simply put, I am alive again. My eyes are opened, and I see things from a new perspective.

Including my girls. It may be their subsequent growth spurts, or simply the fact that we are getting out of the house more, but whatever the case I now have a 2 year old who is well on her way to being a threenager and a 9 month old who is obviously becoming her own person- personality and all!

I'm beginning to have the slightest sense or what the 'Turner family of four' will be like. And I am excited.
