Odin’s starting to become particularly exuberant, which is adorable but also terrifying. He’s embracing his toddlerhood whole-heartedly. He spends his days making funny noises, kissing and hugging a tad bit too hard, and learning new tricks like walking on tip-toes and spinning in circles.
For some reason, he’s also decided that this week would be the week that we switch from two naps to one, which has been a little difficult. Any advice, help, or experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated! He is tired and a little cranky at the usual time (10 am) but after nursing for about 15 minutes, will spring back up giggling and jumping around. We’ll do this little dance on and off for the following two hours and he’ll usually give in around noon. Oy. I really enjoyed my two two-hour naps a day…
Zak did work with the bees. They’re doing a little too well! We now have 3 hives. One which is very strong, one which was the swarm that Zak so masterfully captured, and the third is an experimental hive. OH! And we adopted some baby chickens! I’m so excited about these little cuties.. I’ll post better photos of them soon. Odin’s very gentle with them and loves standing next to his papa when he checks on them.
I’ve also been cooking more, which is exciting. The idea of becoming so domestic is a little terrifying for my wild heart, but we’re coming to terms with it. I made a variety of pizzas this week as well as banana crumb muffins and a new favorite- black bean, red pepper, onion, and sweet potato burritos with cilantro and lime. I thank Pinterest for that last one.
So, that’s about it. A little update for you all! Again, and nap-time advice would be greatly appreciated. 🙂
