Sometimes I wish I could completely freeze him at this perfect age, but then I’d miss out on all the future fun things he’ll learn how to do! So, random bits of fun cuteness, courtesy of 16 month old Matthew: 1. He absolutely thinks the dog is underfed. No matter what he’s eating, he will always share with … [Read more…]

(He has an uncanny sense of rhythm, so this was not as hard as it sounds.) Halfway through the piece I suddenly realized he’d gotten all quiet. And giggly. … [Read more…]

Matthew spent the morning running to the window every time a car went by, saying “buh? buh?” and looking for the school bus. I’m apparently not as much … [Read more…]

Happy birthday, Lisa, we had fun picking strawberries with you!
Using the template here, we made some sunshines to hang in our windows. I had pre-cut the circles and triangles out of heavy black construction paper. While I set up the templates on contact paper, I had the girls cut up the yellow and orange paper…unfortunately, Anna’s safety scissors don’t seem to cut things that … [Read more…]
