I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Listening

Please, someone tell me that sometime soon Eliana will start listening and obeying. LOL. It has been three days now that she has not been able to use her free cone from McDonald's coupon that she earned for reading 30 books. Saturday, she ran outside and down the deck stairs on her own after I told her to stay inside (makes me very nervous since exactly one week before she fell down said stairs and PASSED OUT!!). Sunday, she had a gigantic meltdown at Target and refused to wear her shoes so she could walk and screamed her bloody head off when I put her in the cart. And then today, in a parking lot, she runs off and into the parking lot...clearly a no-no as I was telling her so. The saddest part of all is that our next stop was to get her ice cream...and she knew it.

Sigh, I know I have years more of this, just blowing off some steam.

Ah, Sebastian is like that too sometimes. Very frustrating. Just think of it as her asserting her independence and seeing what limits she can push and what she can't. And concentrate on the good moments!!
