For whatever reason March is always a difficult month for me, so I approach it with a certain amount of trepidation. At different points in the past I had a miscarriage, totaled my car, had my apartment burglarized, etc. Well, this March was not the worst ever. Still, I am glad that it’s over. Both myself and my husband were sick a lot, and the changes at work are finally happening, but not as quickly as we would all like. My boss is going to leave for another part of our gigantic company, and I don’t know yet who I am going to report to. At this point I think I am going to do mostly what I am doing today, but this might change too.
I exercised twice this month – this makes a big jump over nothing :) I am optimistic that with better weather we will have more opportunities for physical activities. I am excited to see that my husband makes some progress in his weight loss – 5 lbs down, 15 more to go. We try to keep our commitment to more fresh food even though we regressed during the time when we were both sick and tired. We saw our friends more often, and we even plan a trip together in May if all the stars align properly.
Anna is healthy and finally growing. She was always on the small side, but in the past week it looks like she grew an entire inch. She finally fits nicely into her 3T clothes and needs new shoes soon. We had some beautiful spring weather in March (I hope it will come back for Easter!), and we used an opportunity to spend more time outside. Anna took to her big girl bed easily, but completely dropped naps. She still has “rest times”, but she spends them playing and reading in her room. This month I did better with letting her choose her activities and not pushing my own agenda. We had some trying days with meltdowns and crankiness though. I read somewhere that the real height of terrible twos or threes happens in the middle of that year, and we are approaching 3.5 here. There is definitely more testing, but overall she is still a happy child who wants to please, and I feel very blessed.
