I feel like everyone is growing up so fast. Annabelle is now able to sit in the stroller like a big girl without her carseat. As a side note- as soon as Annabelle outgrows the carseat, I am going to hurl it off a cliff into a burning inferno of napalm...that is, of course, if my shoulder ever heals from carting it around for the last 6 months. I was so excited to select a careseat that would allow Annabelle to use it until she reached 30 pounds. No one bothered to tell me that I would not be able to carry her in it when she weighs 30 pounds. Even at half that weight I am ready to hot glue some wheels onto it and carry it like luggage at the airport when I'm trying to catch my connecting flight. What was my point?
Growing up. So Annabelle has become this little person who is thinking. I can just tell the wheels are always turning. She loves those dogs (the only reason they are still alive) and cannot take her eyes off of them. And just a couple of weeks ago, it was the dogs who elicited her first real giggle fit.
But she is not the only one who is growing up before my eyes, our 12 "practice" chicks have gotten so big as well. They've gotten so big that last weekend we took them out of the brooder and turned them loose into their coop. And much like Annabelle is acting like a little person, our chicks are acting like little chickens.
