  I thought I would provide updates on a few things.

Amelia pulling the plug I am ironing regularly, and its not too bad.  I have to say I don’t mind it that much, just the sleeves!  The only hard thing is if Amelia is awake, because the ironing board is in our bedroom which is not really a play area.  Amelia goes straight for the alarm clock cord, unplugs it, and then carries it around – dragging the clock of course.  Sometimes she gets tangled up in it.  Amelia also likes to search through drawers that have all sorts of things a baby should not put in her mouth.

Potty training - Kathryn is doing very well, in my opinion.  She usually needs me to make her go to the potty, but she’s only had a couple accidents in the past couple of weeks.  I have nothing to compare to, except my own former dread.  Of  course she wears a diaper for naptime and nighttime, so we still have a long ways to go.  But we have less dirty diapers and our wipes are lasting much longer already.

I am still a winter wimp .  I met a girl at the park yesterday (who had lived in the States for several years) who said this was the warmest winter in a very long time.  Some days it looks a little like spring outside, but it doesn’t feel like it to me.  Its the wind.  I don’t like it and neither does Amelia.  Well, now it actually started snowing, so we went outside to catch some snowflakes to eat.  They were enormous flakes!

Our door was taken away from the hallway one day. 

Luckily we haven’t had any more raisin ice cream .  Darryl’s missionary favorite, plombir, is a definite winner.  Plus, the plastic containers double as tupperware for our leftovers.
