Many people have been curious how Marlo has adjusted to moving into the new house. She’s adjusted just fine. No unreasonable behavior, and no apparent depression. She’s sleeping just fine at night. In fact, I think we timed our move right in line with a growth spurt. Marlo’s been regularly taking 3 hour naps and eating like a teenage boy. I tried to take some pictures of her on Saturday after she woke up from one of those naps with the craziest bed head.
Are you aware how impossible it is to get a good picture of a two-year-old? Maybe it’s just mine. She’s acutely aware of cameras now, and my dreams of her being a performer of some kind die a little with each photograph, because as you can see, she hates getting her picture taken.
I either get scolded like I’m the paparazzi or I get some serious stink-eye. But 99.9% of the time it just takes two little words “fruit snacks” and we’re alllllll smiles.
