Today I subbed in Nursery again and Corban was sitting quietly doing puzzles. He finished his and then quietly reached over and tapped the kid sitting next to him. "Excuse me," he says, then he asks the boy if he wants to trade puzzles. It was so cute. He also sang the old school theme to "scooby doo" on our return trip from the bathroom. He definitely has a mind of his own.
Here are a few pics from my phone today. I took them during music time in nursery. Corban insists on helping out the sister that does singing time- note, she is 7 months pregnant. Isabelle just zones out and watches when she doesn't know the song.
Last week on one of our walks he thought he was in the way of some people. He said, "Sorry" and veered out far enough that the man looked at me with questioning eyes. I said, "He thought he was in your way." The man laughed and said how cute it was for Corban to say sorry and try to get out fo the way.
I think my favorite activity lately is just to make my kids laugh. They love being chased around the yard. Sometimes I get too caught up in keeping order that I forget to just have fun and enjoy being with the kids. It is something I am working on. I don't want all their memories to be of me cleaning and getting after them. I want them to remember smiling and laughing and being happy with me. I hope I can find the balance of keeping on top of everything and still being happy and fun.
I need to record Izzy talking. She is very verbal now. She loves attempting new words. It is so fun to communicate with her now. She can tell you sounds for animals. She will answer with her version of the word yes. Some words she uses regularly are mess, dad, momma, grandma, grandpa, Nina, ouk (Out), up, down, bruhd(brother), teeth (when she wants to brush them), head, hat, hair, eyes, tickle, dog, kitty, I love you (it sounds like "I you" and she tries to sign it), chocolate, candy, cereal, etc. She even said Daniel!
I am so grateful to be a mom!
Thank you DAVE for making it possible for me to stay home with our kids!
