Francesca has finally decided that talking is a good idea! I asked everyone yesterday if they wanted a cookie and she piped up, "I do!"
This is how Anastasia looks when she is trying to convince me that a sleep-over is a good idea.
This is how my girls look when I cave in and agree to a sleepover. Notice there is no picture of my joyous reaction to this decision.
Victoria despises being set down when we are outside. I guess she feels like she can't go anywhere. She doesn't like to use her walker outside either. Next Friday, we are going back to Shriner's for a check-up. I am hoping they can fit her with a walker that gives her more support and confidence, cause she is getting really heavy! Her language is amazing! Today, she scooted over to the dog, patted him on the head and said, "good boy!" Genius!
I recently bought a great book that is full of fun (and easy, which are the best kinds) of activities to teach kids values.
The first one we did was the toothpick test.
Here is our family:
If we stand alone, we can easily break.
But together, we are strong!
Another noteworthy event.....I made a pot roast!
Victoria is becoming super mobile. She just hangs onto the wall and zips all around the house. She tries to open doors and yanks everything off the shelves. She is finally a toddler!
Francesca has really gotten much taller than Victoria. There was some speculation about whether Victoria had strabismus, but according to the doctor, there is nothing to worry about. She has eyes that mimic strabismus, but are really perfectly fine. Not sure exactly what that means, but it must have been invented to worry mom's!
I will leave you with little Catherine and her random words of wisdom.
"Mom, I think I am very dehydrated and I need a milkshake immediately!"
Hey, me too!!!!!
