It's a tough stage

Adjusting to two was tricking, but actively teaching and playing with two is tough.  Lucy is so mature but still so dependent that the clashes between those two dimensions sometimes seem impossible to traverse.  And Reid is learning so much that his little brain won't slow down enough to fall asleep and stay asleep on his own.  Not helping is the pulling himself up skill to which he has no reverse mode to get back down.  I adore these two but I haven't had many opportunities in the past month to feel like a very successful mom. But when all else fails and I have no energy and no ideas - to the bath or shower they both go. It soothes them.  It soothes me.

Lucy has recently become a collector of "treasures".  She likes to keep broken glass from the road and pull things out of my D.I. piles.  The more broken the better.  She often assigns them magical powers making them very hard to reclaim.

Holidays are starting to get fun as Lucy is able to enjoy more and more of the festivities.  We can still pick and choose what we want to do because she doesn't know any different, but what we do do, she usually loves.
