Binary solo

Logan has started counting in the past few weeks. He has always been good at 'one' and 'two' but it has been hit and miss as far as enunciating 'three'. Sometimes he gets it well and other times seems at a loss of what comes next. We've even had a 'four' thrown into the mix at times. Recently, though, he has solved the problem of remembering what comes after the first two numbers by simply repeating them as he counts: "" It's pretty darn cute if you ask me (but then pretty much everything he does is in my opinion). I was telling my friend about how he uses the same numbers no matter how high he's counting and she suggested that he's simply employing a binary system. My kid's already mastered the building blocks of all computer systems. Brilliant!
Did you ever doubt me?

No News is Good News

After just getting to the point at which I felt on top of things enough to start posting a little more regularly, I fell into a huge funk. It didn't take me long to suspect and then discover that this was because... I am pregnant again! I was sick the first time around but it was liveable. This time, however, I wanted to die. Thankfully I seem to be emerging from the other end of the worst of it so am starting to piece my life back together. James was amazing through everything and picked up a lot of the slack that I left around but he could only do so much after a long day of hard work. So now I'm slowly catching up on putting life back into its comfortable course. So I don't have a lot of extra time to write on here but I thought I should at least break the radio silence with a bit of an explanation for my absence.
