I felt it was time for a Thompson Family update! These have been so few and far between, because I have tried to focus on posting on my crochet blog, therefore this one has been a bit neglected.
So, what is happening with the Thompsons? For me, I have been busy finishing up school and my internship. Mentally, I am over it. I am ready to be done and to be home with Belle. She has adjusted to all of the running around well, but I feel that I am losing my mind. Currently, I am in a different school each day and Belle goes to a different sitter each day. If I can keep track of who goes where when until the end of this I will be impressed with myself.
Belle is becoming a little girl. I am amazed at the things she picks up. I was asking her what different animals say and she knew what a frog said, and a bird. She mimics things we say and do and remembers more than I give her credit for. She is running, dancing, and jumping on the couch. She also loves to climb up onto the dining room table and hates when I make her get down.
Right now Belle is a mega daddy's girl. She cries when Paul leaves and clings to his legs. Although Paul hates her crying, I know he secretly loves that his daughter is so attached to him. As far as other people, Belle knows how to charm. That girl can be a terror for me in Meijer, but she will smile and wave at everyone around. Little stinker :-)
Below are some recent pics of us at the children's museum and some hilarious videos of Belle.
