Update Friday

Click pictures to make them bigger....

Well I have been lazing in updating this blog. We have had a busy week with some great pictures. Here is one of Sydney in the tub.. She loves bath time..

Then we did no TV Tuesday and I played and played and played with Daniel all day. We painted with water colors, and family get ready to check mailboxes as he did one for everyone. We had fun cutting out newspaper and magazine pictures and then we glued them together. Here is a picture of the finished project. He was so proud of himself.

We then had fun playing with this neat thing they made at school. He made a lamb face and it had a little story that went with it. I read the story and he acted it out and then we sang the song together. He loves it. See story below.

Then we played basketball in the house. It was cold out. We do not have a basketball net, so I took this box and cut a hole in the top and used packing tape to tape to the door of my closet. We played basket ball together. He actually became great at making the shots. See box below taped to posters on door and there is one of him shooting at it as well.

Last but not least we played handy man. I would go around and show him what needed to be fixed and he would pretend to saw, screw, hammer, drill, and take apart, whatever needed to be done. It was cute watching him. He even gave me a "bill" at the end..

We made it until 4pm with no TV and then I had to clean since I was hosting Bible Study so I put in a Mighty Machines DVD and rationalized that it was a learning DVD not just a movie. He learned all about Fire Trucks, Trash Trucks and Street Sweepers. I think at the end of the day I was more tired then he was. The bad part is that he now wants no TV everyday...I know thats good news, but now having the time to play with him all day will be interesting.

Sydney at 7 months

I posted 3 Posts today.. so check them out under this one..

Well I was so busy I was not able to post on Tuesday when Sydney turned 7 months old. She is growing a lot. She learned to feed herself some small "puffs".

She is still learning to sit up by herself and roll from her back to her stomach. Maybe next month I will be able to post that. But she still has her smile.. here she is with her great granddaddy (who will be 90 in August)smiling away.

We went to the park on Tuesday for her 7 month outing and it was very beautiful, yet windy. Here she is swinging, which she loved.

Can't wait to see what next month brings. I love this girl.

Playing Church....

Well one morning we were getting ready for church. We had eaten breakfast and had gotten the kids ready and now it was mommy and daddy's turn to get dressed. I put Sydney in the "johnny jumper" and started getting ready. Well Stefan noticed that Daniel had brought his stool and his Noah's Ark book into the bathroom near where Sydney was "jumping" and began telling her about this "big boat" that "all the animals rode on" and this "guy named Noah". It was so cute. Stefan went and got the camera to capture this precious momment. Maybe we are raising up a preacher boy. Only God knows.

Now a pirate

Well you have seen Daniel as "Dash" from the Incredibles, a Fire fighter and Buzz Light Year, now he is a Pirate. I have never seen a boy like to play dress up as much as he does. He got this for a little mile stone in his life.. going poop on the potty. He is doing great and no accidents for over 1 week. I am so proud of him. He is growing up.
