Reading, reading, and more reading. This past week Thomas decided that he LOVES to read, and to be read to. He'll frequently grab a book and come plop down in my lap (quite regardless of what I'm doing at the time!) :) It is awfully sweet and I'm enjoying it. It is a good reminder to me, too, to slow down and make sure that I am reading to the kids, not getting caught up in errands and chores and heaven knows what else that isn't really as important.
The boys all got hair cuts (don't they look nice? I think I'm getting better at this!)
This is the "I'm busy watching a movie and can't be expected to look at a camera" pose. :)
Jonathan has been enjoying preschool time. We made thank you cards after his birthday - paint hand prints. We talked about why we were making them, who we'd send them to, and Jonathan even specified exactly what text he wanted me to write on the cards. I think they turned out awfully cute.
A bonus of this project was Jonathan's discovery that if you mix two colors, you get a new one!
He really concentrates on projects like these.
This past week Jonathan has developed a strong interest in letters of the alphabet. He wants to know how to spell everyone's name, and which letters start the names of everyone in our extended family. Since I'm about to run out of alphabet stickers, I thought I'd better create a new alphabet project!
So today we started making alphabet cards. I cut out the pictures and letters, and Jonathan glued them together. He had a good time making them, although he decided to get "shy" and refuse to actually try making the sounds or tell me what each picture was! Oh well - the point is just exposure and fun right now anyway!
As for me? I've been gestating. This baby is coming along nicely, don't you think?
