The kids

My little baby is 3 months old. I can't believe how fast time has gone and how much she has grown. She laughed for the first time last Friday. She loves to interact with people. She is a very happy child. She watches everything very seriously, but when you talk to her, she eagerly responds and has a lot to say. It is so cute. Here she is talking to me, she must have said something funny.

Here is her watching look, she is trying to figure out what papi has in his hands. What is that black thing with the light?

The boy is so active. He loves to explore and is still obsessed with skis. I'm hoping we will have a bit of a vacation from talking about and watching anything to do with skiing during the summer (no snow). Here he is following some turkeys and peacocks. Serious business.

My oldest just go a haircut, and she is very proud. She had bangs cut, but she has been nervous about wearing them down. Today she made the plung. We will see how well it went. Bangs, are a big move for a 14 year old.

llama llama

We read books with my son every night and he loves it. I'm sure you do the same. Up to this point we have a collection that we cycle through and he just enjoys looking at pictures. However, recently he has started to enjoy the text as well. He is continually choosing to read the books that have rhyming and singing.

I am really enjoying this. I have started to look for books that have some quality text and fun storylines. I found a couple that I am loving and so is he. They are the llama llama books by Anna Dewdney, llama llama mad at mama and llama llama red pajama. Not only are they cute, but they are clever too. I have to say that I highly recommend them to all with children from 2-6 years old.

Happy reading
