So sorry for the loooong break I took. Life got a little chaotic and I am rarely by my computer with time to write. But the pictures have been downloaded off the camera and for the few people who read this I thought I would update.
Grace turned 3 on November 7th. She had a Dora themed birthday party with friends and family and had a wonderful time. In fact it took a lot of convincing the next morning that her birthday was over. Grace started going to a mom's day out program in Sept and is really enjoying her time. She will gladly talk about her teacher Ms. Elaine. Grace always astounds us at what she says and remembers. She has officially graduated out of Physical Therapy as her gross motor skills are pretty much right on for a 3 year old. We don't ever have to go back unless we start to see problems
Norah is 11 months old and our little destructo baby. She doesn't crawl yet but she can get around scooting on her bottom. You might think it would take her awhile to get from one place to another but it really doesn't. She likes to take things apart and fling the pieces every which way. She is very opinionated (I think she gets that from me). Her vocabulary is coming along, she says hi, bye, come, momma, dadda, gace (grace), nummy, no and other things that sound like certain words but you are never sure.
Scott and I are the same, I went back to work full time in mid september and while we haven't necessarily done a whole lot we are busy all the time. We got a new front door and we re did Grace and Norah's room. We have been blessed to watch Grace participate in her first christmas programs this year. WHile it is sad that she is growing up so fast it is so amazing to watch your child learn and start to understand about Christmas, baby Jesus and all that goes with it.
Funny Grace sayings:
During one of her prayers " God, Father in Heaven we lift up Santa and please help me to get off the naughty list and onto the nice list." (this after a particularly rough day at daycare)
In a discussion with Santa, "Santa why are you dressed up" "I am on the nice list now but swiper (from Dora) is on the naughty list because he steals!" " You're coming to my house to bring me presents."
There are many more but my mind can't think anymore. I will leave you with a few pictures and I will try and be better at updating this blog.
