At a Stand Still

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I feel as though all of my blog posts recently have been about my writer's block, a non-personal post, or how hard it is to be a single mom. I'm not moving in the direction that I want this blog to go. I started FromBean2Baby to document my life as a first time mom, the growth of my daughter, and my life together with her and her dad. Our little family.

It's no secret that we're not a family anymore. We'll always have a bit of a family, because together, we made Clara. I'll never stop loving him, but our lives are definitely moving in opposite directions.

This post wasn't supposed to be about him either. moving on.

Clara is thriving. She's learning and soaking everything in like a little, adorable sponge. She picks up something new each day. I feel like I say this all of the time, but she's soooo close to walking! I know, you're thinking, "how old is this kid!?". Well to answer you, she's 14 months and no, she's not walking. I feel like the only reason I notice is because complete strangers ask if THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH HER because she's not walking at 14 months. I didn't walk until almost 14 months. She's got some time. Back off, strange people.

Clara is completely "normal". Whatever your definition of that may be. In fact, she may be a bit advanced, but I'm biased. I'm her mother, so therefore she's the most brilliant child ever. She now has thirteen teeth. Thirteen! She eats everything in sight. Even salad! There hasn't been a thing that she's disliked so far.

Clara says Mom, Dad, Grandma, what's this?, I did it, and drink. She crawls, stands, and gets back down. She watches me and other kids to figure out how to do things. She has a strong will power, and is getting some major girly attitude.

She loves to brush her hair, put on necklaces, play with VHS tapes (which she will stack and climb on), and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She can open and close door, cabinets, and drawers.

I'll try to update more as life takes on more interesting courses. 

For the time being, here's so pictures from life recently taken via iPhone.
