So Busy!

I have forgotten what toddlers are like - or maybe Norah just wasn't as busy as Lucy, but oh my goodness! Lucy doesn't sit for long - well, except to read books. She is on the go all the time and she has no fear, which is totally different than Norah. Norah has always been reserved and hesitant. If I turn my back for 2 seconds, Lucy is climbing on the arm of the chair in position like she is about to jump off!

Right now, Norah is with my parents at my sister's so Lucy has the run of the house. She has been running circles since she woke up from her nap. She pulls all the books off the shelf, dumps out the Little People, dumps the blocks and turns the TV on and off. As soon as I get everything picked up, she does it again. She will sit for a few minutes at a time if someone is sitting with her. I can distract with a book - she has about 4 favorites - but then she wants me to read the book about 20 times in a row. Whew! She wears me out!!

Lucy is a very happy little girl and she sleeps great at night so I think I can handle the activity!

I know how you feel, Donnie is also VERY active...rarely sits for a minute & loves to CLIMB! He definitely keeps me busy! Maybe my next one will be a little more layed's crazy how siblings can have such different personalities.
