We're going stir crazy.
I feel like my brain has gone to mush. I've been finding myself saying words, such as...
What has happened to me??
It's the snow. I blame it on the snow.
There must be some powerful characteristic in snow that sucks out the intelligence of stay at home mothers.
Or maybe just me.
Thanksgiving was good and fine.
We spent it with great people and basically just loved having company, period.
But now I'm dreaming of Christmas.
Longing for Christmas.
Desperately NEEDING Christmas to get here quickly, so I can escape this snow prison.
The girls are doing fabulously.
Layla is excelling in all areas of study.
Grammar (unlike me)
I love it when I catch her doing something that I thought she didn't know how to do.
Like... yesterday she was sitting up at the counter with a worksheet of hers, from school. It had her name and a few other short words on it. She began to state each letter and then say it's sound. Practically reading! She did this with "Nest" and "Best".
She can draw a person with amazing likeness now too.
Eyes, lips, nose, ears, hair, body.... you get the picture.
I should find a picture of hers to post on here, you'd be amazed.
OH! and she's been sleeping in her bed for a whole week without any nightime wakings! I'm so proud of her!
Although there aren't any pictures of her in this post,
(besides the ones on the wall)
we've been having SO much fun with Gwen lately too!
She is learning so many new things at RAPID speed.
She signs: milk, please, more, mommy, and tree.
Folds her arms (occasionally) when we pray.
Woofs like a dog when she sees one.
Can say Daddy, Mommy, Layla, and Up pretty clearly.
She gives kisses and then claps afterward.
She took a few little steps the other day, purely by accident and it scared her a bit so I doubt she'll be repeating that again anytime soon.
She LOVES Baby Einstein, her blankie, applesauce, and bananas.
She goes NUTS over yogurt, her Mommy, balls, and being outside.
These little crazies are really what keep me sane this time of year.
