We finally have a chopper!
Well, my 16 month old FINALLY got her first tooth last week! Julia was a late teether too but not this long. Poor thing. She's coughing, drooling, running nose, and diaper rash. But, hopefully as it was with Julia, her teeth will pop up like popcorn and we can get this all over with quickly! She's still such a sweet baby. But ORNERY! One day, in about a 5 min timeframe, she threw a pair of my tennis shoes in the bathtub full of water, unrolled a roll of toilet paper, and flushed the toilet about 10 times. Oh, that little one keeps me busy. I'm grateful for the distraction though. It's going to be a long summer....Julia's already bored! lol But, I'm trying to plan lots of trips and activities to keep her busy. We're flying out to Ohio to spend time with my friend, Karen, and her kids for a week in June. It's something that I will really need since it will be close to the time Rob was supposed to return. I'm starting to have more of a social life which has been really nice for me. As much as I love my children, I need to feel like I'm more than just a mom. Again, my family has been wonderful and watching the girls so I can do this. It's hard for me to make friends here since I'm used to the "forced" meetings in the military community, but slowly and surely, I'm making them. At times I feel guilty for going out, but my family and friends have reassured me that it's just as good for the girls to get away every once in awhile with family as it is for me to. Besides that, nothing else has really gone on except the same old, same old. Routine is good. :)
