So, we've been excited to see what Kaylee learns at school. It's amazing what she learns through songs! She knows the sounds of letters...thanks to the Letter Factory! She's beginning to spell words by singing them. She knows the days of the week by singing them. She knows the months of the year by singing them.
Only if I could make up songs and sing, then all this talking stuff wouldn't have ever been a problem with speech!
We taught Kaylee her birth date. When she was asked, for the first little while she would say, "July next!" She finally is able to say it correctly. We've tried to add a bit more information since then...like her birth year!
The beginning of the school year has been great. Kaylee loved her teacher Miss Reid. But before the first month was over, we would have a new teacher. Turns out the 2nd and 3rd grades had a combined class that needed to be split. Miss Reid had taught 3rd grade before, so she took the new class. Kaylee's class was then divided between the remaining classes. Luckily we have 3 other friends in her class from our ward. Kaylee LOVES school! We recently had school picture day. I wasn't aware of this, but if you volunteer to help with the photos, you get a package for free. So Kaylee got free photos. We'll be doing this every year for sure!
Cade has been enjoying preschool and riding his bike. He's growing to be such a handsome little fellow. He loves to climb up on my bed when I take a little nap and snuggle and kiss me. He's my little man!
love those almond eyes!
When he's finished taking photos, he'll let me know!
So yesterday we did a haircut-a-thon. Cade first, then Kaylee, and then I figured it would be good to take some of the length off of Conner's hair. His bangs were hanging into his eyes. So I'm doing really well and got up to his bangs. He feels the clippers on his forehead and leans his head forward which takes off twice as much as I was planning. Well....turns out his hair cut was a perfect mullet! At first I thought we could make it work, but then David started calling Conner by his new name, Connie. Oh well...I guess we'll have to cut it all to the shorter length. So here is our new do. A bit shorter, but that means he won't need it cut for a long time. I still need to do some tapering in the back, but at least he looks more like a little boy now...not a girl! :) I miss his longer locks, but they'll return. I wish I would have take a photo of Connie before we got rid of her!
I love being at home with my kids and enjoying being a wife and mommmy. I heart photography, editing, tickling, kissing or snuggling the kids, relaxing and of course kissing my fine specimen of a man hubby.
I'm not the best with words, but I feel I express myself better by sharing what I see. You'll see the funny, beautiful and crazy things that go in my life. Beautiful images help me keep happy. When I know I've made them, it makes me even happier.
