Pre-Pre Teen



It is so interesting to watch my "babies" grow up. K is very social and loves to have friends over (something that I am working VERY hard to make time for in our crazy busy schedule!) This week she invited a friend from school, plus we have S (her friend that I watch every day after school). This is what 8/9 year-olds like to do: turn the music up really loud and play with the baby. They did these two things for almost two hours (with a little Nintendo DS, games, and playing with the pets thrown in for fun). They have such fun personalities and have so much fun with LD. Next time they all get together, I am going to plan a HUGE project for myself since I will unexpectedly have a couple free hours! :)

In other news, LD has been "using" his fork for awhile now, but I haven't let him try anything with a spoon. Here is the result of a 15-month-old with his own carton of yogurt! At least he had a blast. About half way through, he started handing me his spoon every bite and grunting, meaning, "Mom, could you feed me now. I am not getting enough in my mouth!"

wow, suddenly I come to your blog and I have missed a ton! it was so good to talk to you the other night, and this post makes me wish we were closer so that our kids (and us) could play too. I am so happy that we will have your sister now though!

That's such a cute picture! I wish I had thought to take a pic of Kevin the other day covered in applesauce. He's been trying out his spoon, too, with similar results. This is such a fun age, isn't it?
