March 23, 2013

We bought a house! Well, we'll close on Monday. It has been an exciting (read: stressful and uncertain) couple of months between when we made the offer in early February and this week when everything officially came together. We drove by the house tonight to let Charlotte peek inside the windows - we are very excited for her to go inside on Monday afternoon. Here she is with the "Sold" sign.


It has been fun answering Charlotte's questions about moving. Questions such as "Will we take my bed?" and "Will we take the kitchen?" have been fun to answer. She seemed to be a bit distressed about moving until today. It helped that Grandma and Grandpa Distad took her to Como Zoo for the day, so she didn't have to watch the packing process. The current state of living in a city of boxes is pretty cool.

We'll be moving the afternoon of March 30th - let us know if you're in the mood to carry some boxes!

We also wanted to share a video! Charlotte participated in "Tumble Together" through Community Ed. Last weekend was her last class and here she is demonstrating her expert frontward roll, sweet patience, and developing bar skills.

March 9, 2013


It has been a momentous weekend for our family - Charlotte spent her first night away from us, and she had so much fun! Patrick and I had a commitment all day today, so my parents picked her up last night and got in some quality time with Charlotte. She had a great time reading, playing with Barbies, and baking a cake with Grandma (pictured above). We missed her a lot, but it is a relief to know that she can do well overnight without us in case we're ever in a pinch. Not to mention, the cake is delicious. 

Her patching is down to 4 hours/day, and Grandma got a little creative with the positioning of her patch. We like it. In other Charlotte updates, we have backed off on even talking about toilet training. She seems to have some anxiety about going BM in the toilet and so we're encouraging her to go in the bathroom, even if it is means going in her pull-up. It's not working. She goes when she knows no one will notice (while wearing her snow pants, for example), and then doesn't tell us. She has diaper rash. She is getting pretty good at cleaning her own bottom, though.
