One Year Ago

Exactly one year ago today, March 3, I wrote this post: Safety First. We were having our home baby proofed by a professional baby proofing company (because God knows we couldn't have done it ourselves) and discovered that our home was unprotected by a carbon monoxide detector.

This was shocking news to me because 1) I thought we had one and 2) My parents died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Boy, did I feel stupid! We immediately rectified this oversight. I urge all of you to make sure you too have a CO detector and that it is in working order. It can save lives!

Also a year ago...

Lucas turned nine months old, just learned how to clap, went into a swimming pool for the first time and started wearing the Doc Band, my sister turned 26, we were starting to really listen to nursery rhymes, I was lusting after Pretty Things and I read Kelly Corrigan's beautiful memoir, The Middle Place.

Last week I wrote my 500th Letters For Lucas post, Lucas is almost 21 months old, Leah will be 27 on Monday, we have a new address, my husband has his own vintage car showroom, which has been (knock on wood) very successful so far and I'm reading One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and I'm still lusting after pretty things:

Bailey Console Table - Pottery Barn

Love Letters Sheet Set - Anthropologie

Wall Art - Land of Nod

The last week has been rough. Lucas has been sick with the worst cold/flu of his young life and we have been to the pediatrician's office twice, most recently to find out he now has a double ear infection. I've been sick too and so has Todd. Taking care of a sick child when you're sick too is no fun!

Never a dull moment...

As always, then and now, our life is full of ups and downs, but also a lot of humor along the way.

How has your life changed in one year?

This post was written for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop Prompt 3) What were you blogging about last year at this time? What has changed?

It's amazing how much changes in a year, but I think you will always lust after pretty things, that will never change, and it shouldn't!

Kids change so much in a year. Being sick is never fun, especially when it everyone in the hosue gets it.

Amazing how much things change in a year, especially with little ones. I love everything Pottery Barn and we have all been sick for the past week too. Hope everyone is feeling better soon and you get all of the things on your wish list.

I was going to write about this post too. Isn't it amazing how much changes in just a year?

We've all been sick too....not fun at all.

Congrats on your 500th post!

Ooooh! You need to tell me about your husband's vintage cars! My husband is really into them and has a 1955 Chevy 210 post. :)

:-) I was really still getting the hang of this "mom" thing last year with a 7 month old and I have come so far with my almost 19 month old! I wasn't blogging then, but I sure wish that I had been. So sorry that you've all been sick, and I do love PB, but my husband drools over the catalog when it comes in the mail. I am a lucky girl!

Wow, what a lot of things happen in a year, don't they?! And 500 posts?! Wow. I will most certainly never get there, girl!

So much changes over the course of a year, and so much remains the same. Thank you for the reminder about the carbon monoxide detector. Mine have been sitting in a box in the garage. Your heartbreaking story is just what I needed to motivate myself to finally install them. I hope you guys are feeling better. This cold/flu season has been brutal!

In 12 months it amazes me how much things have changed I wanted to go with this prompt but last year at this time I was going through a rough patch. I didn't want to remember it. Although I can now be thankful that I overcame it ;)

Congrats on your 500th post! Glad you found out this information about the CM detector. I also love the wall art from Land of Nod - one of my favorite stores!
