A few years ago, before she turned two, we had Nora evaluated by early intervention for her speech, when we were concerned about her lack of words.
Today, Nora was evaluated again. Girlfriend has words—a lot of them. She doesn’t stop talking. But this time, it was about understanding what she says.

We had Nora’s preschool parent-teacher conference yesterday. Michael and I walked into her empty classroom and took a seat across from her teacher, in the tiny blue chairs at the too-short tables. Twenty minutes dedicated to hearing someone else’s evaluation of our girl.
It went really well. We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but [...]
My 4 year old is afraid of everything right now. EVERYTHING.
I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about this since our trip to Disney World. It was during our trip a few weeks ago when Nora’s fears really seemed to take hold and become more of a challenge… not just for her, but [...]
Is it possible for babies to be bullies? Because, uh… Vivienne sometimes acts like one when she’s around other babies. Or puppies.

“I don’t want you to be mad,” she pleads.

AboutI'm Heather. I'm 32 and have been married to Michael for six years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
