We've had a few things going on around here and it seems that we are in the throes of Toddlerhood (thus the lame blogging - NO TIME!). Lia is a busy, bright little girl and she has been amazing us with her smarts. She can sing the ABCs (punk-rock style, thanks to her dad), count to 11 (awesome) and is really really trying to spell her name, but it usually comes out as Geeoooeeeeaaaa. (G is her favorite letter, so I guess they all are "G" for now.) She is definitely a Lefty and loves to "coloooor." Now, I'm not one to push little ones to read or count, but this girl WANTS to learn. She's a sponge.

We have decided to change one MAJOR thing about little miss - her birthday. Originally, we planned on changing it to a January birthday, which was suggested by our pediatrician. We know in our hearts that the birthdate listed on her paperwork is wrong, and I'm glad we went with a January birthday in our minds for the first year-and-a-half home. She needed that time of us treating her like an infant, instead of a one-year-old. (Especially as she most likely was an infant.) But, we've recently learned that trying to change her birthdate with the government can be tricky, and rather than have her face problems down the road, we're going back to the birthday listed on her paperwork - in August! So, next month she'll turn 2 (in January) and then in August she will turn 3! You've got to roll with it, you know? I hope she understands all of our crazy logic someday.
