Wow...it's been a while.
Because I know you've all been wondering - I no longer have a thumb-sucker. And it was all for this...Barbie Thumbelina (Thumbelina - ironic huh).By Friday she'll have enough 'dollars' saved to buy one. She is so proud of herself. And I'm proud of her. I still catch her with it in her mouth when she's deep in sleep - but those moments are getting more rare. Hopefully after she stops for a while, that will stop too. Now...the new problem - putting EVERYTHING in her mouth.
So, yesterday I stayed home from work sick. And, I kept Carlee and Eli home with me (I'm not sure how smart that was).
Here was Carlee's prayer at lunch:
'Jesus, thank you for my mommy staying with me all day today. Please Jesus, let Jenna come play in my playhouse with me. And I love my mommy and I love my daddy. Amen'.
Not glad I didn't feel good...glad my sweet girl was home with me.
And, Eli - my little man. He's pulling up on everything and every-once-in-a-while gets brave enough to let go with one hand. He crashes into things, crawls under things and bangs his head, falls off things...and never cries - just keeps on going. Is this a sign of things to come? Carlee was, and is, afraid of everything - no risk taking, nothing dangerous. I love this little guy.
Last thing...I would love to hear pre-school opinions/suggestions? I'm considering a couple of scenarios for Carlee. I was told last week that to be where she needs to be to start Charleston kindergarten (and not be behind) she needs to do 4-day pre-school (full days). Thoughts/opinions?
