I feel like I want to blog, but I don't really have anything to say! I'm sure my desire to talk will win over my desire to be meaningful.
It seems my weeks are full of doctor's appointments and looking after the girls. The doctors see me every week at the end of the pregnancy. I also had my fifth ultrasound for this little one on Tuesday to see if the baby is head down. The baby is head down!!! That is a good thing, as I'm not too keen on having a c-section if it isn't necessary.
Squeaky is starting to read a tiny bit. She knows most of her alphabet (in capitals), and she knows the sounds they make. The vowels still throw her for a loop sometimes. She can read her own name, her sister's name, "mom", "dad", "baby", "bob" (as in Bob the Tomato), and we've been working on sounding out "ark", "dot" and "lion." I'm trying to pick words that begin with the same letters as her name or other words she knows so that she'll begin to understand you have to read all the letters and not just the first one. It's been fun to see her so interested in it. Don't worry, I'm not pushing her to be a genius child or anything; she just always has had an interest in books and so this is right up her alley.
Everytime we come home from Cubbies she wants to pose for a picture in her vest. This was one of the times I humored her. :)
Button (13 months) is starting to talk a little bit! See her tiny ponytail?
Her list of words lately:
baby- pretty much everything, but she does know a baby when she sees one and can point it out in a picture
hi- said with the most enthusiasm I think a baby could possibly have when Daddy comes home
jumpeejumpee- when she sees her jolly jumper
aria- for herself
tickle tickle- she pulls up her shirt and tickles her tummy, or her sister's tummy, or anyone's feet, etc.
