And here are two crazy children and Ted posing by the new blue door (pardon the messy painting on the handle/lock - we're putting in new hardware in the next couple of weeks. If you know us, you also know that it would look like that even if we weren't putting in new hardware in a couple of weeks.):
We attended the birthday party of beautiful Mia today. It was a great party! Mia's mom and dad did a wonderful job. The party was held on a very toddler friendly playground with a great pavilion - yummy brunch with delicious cupcakes and tie-dyed t-shirts for party favors. So much fun! (If it's ok with Mia's mom, I'll link to her party post when she does it.)
I've done some crafting, too. I made gift bags for Mia's gift and for cutie-pie Trevor (whose b-day party we had to miss). I also made Kira a pair of shorts out of the fruit fabric and Jackson another pair of jammie bottoms (like the ones he's wearing in the pic above) out of the striped fabric. They put them on and immediately covered them in chocolate ice cream stains. If I can clean them up, I'll post pics of those, too. So, anyway, gift bags (with books already in them):
The kids and I are starting to do letter-crafts similar to (and sometimes exactly like) the No Time for Flash Cards ones. First up, fine feathered friends:
We have Kira's first visit to the Down syndrome clinic this week. She's seen a geneticist since she was 3 months, but it's time to switch over. I'm a little nervous. She'll have her hearing tested and then we send those results on to the school system. I can't believe she's almost old enough to transition out of ECI and into the school system. Again, I'm a little nervous.
So, that's what's happening around here! Hope y'all had a lovely weekend!
