Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 4/30/16

Posted on April 30, 2016

It’s been a few weeks since I gave much of a personal update on the blog and while life seems crazy, I don’t think all that much has changed! Our trip to Florida was wonderful but already seems forever ago. The days were full of sunshine, family, friends, swimming and ice cream eating (can you tell we are related?). I don’t know where the last couple of weeks have gone Spring sure is moving along! I’m ready for more warm weather and sunshine.

When the sun is out, so are we!

Life with L is just non-stop busy. I mentioned that before but seriously, the kid gives me a run for my money. He is so darn smart and I can tell his brain is going 100 miles a minute at all times. As a result, I’ve got to be on my toes to keep up! Over the last week he’s been trying to talk so much. He tries to repeat 90% of the words I say (guess I should be careful!) and is so close to being able to string two words together at a time (he has done it a few times). The other day I handed him pretzels and he said “two” because he knew there were two of them. In each book that we read, he identifies every animal and object he can find. And crazy enough, he knows a lot of letters in the alphabet! “D” for daddy might be his favorite but “I” for ice cream is up there too. Now if only he’d listen when I said “no” and take longer naps! Ha!

With all the non-stop mommy energy I’ve been completely wiped out lately. The other night I requested an entire chocolate cake but had to settle for a couple of bowls of ice cream instead. When does parenting get easier? Does it? Maybe don’t answer that!

Now for this week’s updates….

  • I am always left dumbfounded about what my daughter can do…things we don’t teach her and yet she knows. Most of the time it is stuff we would rather her not do just yet. I am there with the exhaustion and wondering if it gets easier. Just know you are not alone.

    It’s crazy how fast they learn… L really does sound like he’s a smarty! I wish Berkeley was talking a little more…that must be so much fun now that he’s starting to communicate. Haha, parenting is so hard. I’m totally wiped at the end of every day .
