The wee ones are growing by
leaps and bounds right now, developmentally and
physically. It's such an amazingly fun and
overwhelmingly exhausting time right now.
The redeeming qualities that 2-year-olds possess
help us balance the stubborn passionate temper
tantrums that they seem to enjoy so much.
Thank God they're cute, I say sometimes.
This week it seems like their
language skills and attention span have
increased an amazing amount. I just really
enjoy hearing how they interpret the world.
:Here are a few of their pronunciations - pretty
Kelli's boyfriend Spencer:
His name has become Pencil.
The last line of the song
"Ring around the Rosie" has become "asses,
asses, we all fall down." They have no
idea of what they're saying. I don't
even think they've ever heard the word.
But their "s" and "sh" sounds are
Our resident skeleton, Lance
Carbuncle, has become Bones Barbuncle.
The "L" has fallen from
"flag" and Nadia talks about wanting her fag
For a while there, Angus
couldn't say the "sk" sound and instead said
"sh," so when he called Nadia a skitterbug,
it became sh-itterbug. We got a kick
out of asking him to say "skittles."
So innocent. I love that innocence!
We have a new toddler prison in
our backyard. I had to have a way to get
the little ones outside safely when I'm alone.
So Loren worked hard at getting a fence up
around the swingset. He's my hardworking
hero! I love that guy!
Angus is learning to play the
violin now. He's SO attentive in it.
Just a natural. I love it!
I'm getting ready to head off to
visit my granddaughter, Camryn. I'm so
excited. She's in California and I'm
certain I'm going to have a hard time pulling
myself away from her for even a second while I'm
there. My son-in-law is off to Iraq in a
month, so I want to see him before he goes.
Let's not forget what brave young people are
doing for our country right now.
I participated in the
National Geographic genographic project and
I was excited to receive the results today.
My maternal blood line can be traced from east
central Africa, up through Russia and over to
Western Europe. No big surprise there.
I've only had the chance to glance at it, but
there's a lot more info that I'm looking forward
to learning from the info I received.
Well, that's a pretty boring
update. I'm putting the finishing touches
on a video from the last 6-months of material.
I should be done with it this weekend. I
also should be done updating my Hypnobirthing
Our new fence.
