Little man is officailly rolling in both directions. Apparently all he needed was a little motivation. Here's the story. I put him on his tumm on the floor with some toys while I ate with the girls. He was so quiet I completely forgot about him and when I remembered he was awake I was worried he had died or something! Nope he just rolled onto his back to watch our Friday night show.
He is a very happy boy, people always ask me if he is always like that, and I must say he almost always is. I took him to the fabric store and he laughed his head off at the cut table. He loves it when I fold large sheets or towels so he thought that rolling out bolts and folding cloth was a hoot. They offered to keep him. I declined.
The girls have been begging me to rake leaves. Yesterday they laid on the trampoline and squeeled as the leaves fell onto them from the tree. This morning we finally had enough fallen leaves for piles. They had a great time. Andi did have her first splinter though. That is pretty traumatic on little kids! I felt terrible trying to dig it out, but smart daddy produced a sucker to help her bare the pain. It's a good thing he paid atention in his pain management module!
I am sooo behind, but here are a few milestones from the month...
Tenna can do the monkey bars by herself!
Andi now knows the names of dinosaurs I can hardly pronounce and their eating habits.
I gave myself whiplash on the trampoline, but it was so worth it.
Albert is down to 18 months of school left! (But I am not counting down)
Tenna is doing so well in preschool. They did a little show and I was AMAZED at how well she did. She was so focused and was the first to shout out almost all of the letters and all of the colors.
The list goes on...I mostly wanted to update the great-grandparents!
The girls love having me jump with them. They mostly sit in the middle and command me to dance around them and sing silly songs. It's a good workout for me and I get to hear lots of giggles, so I don't mind. These sessions usually end in a wrestling match. I recently "surrendered," to Tenna during a match. When I explained to her what that meant she was quite excited to be in charge. Needless to say I could only allow her reign to last for ten minutes. Andi had a turn as dictator as well, but I find she is not as demanding (or creative). Phew!
