After three weeks of being under-the-weather and a long, flopsy-sick weekend, I really believe Wren is officially on the mend. She’s back to her charming self, exclaiming this morning in reference to her chapped lips, “it’s pothole season on my lips!” A little while later she blew her nose really hard and some blood came out on the tissue. “Mama, this is SO cool! I got to see blood come out of my body!” Yup, she’s ba-ack!
If you haven’t seen it yet, Wren and her Easter crafting were featured over on one of my favorite sites for art/craft inspiration: The Artful Parent! Click on over to see it. Hippity hoppity, Easter’s on its way!
All by herself (remember “do it SELF!!!”) Wren made a picture for Phoebe “of Phoebe in the sandbox.” I didn’t even know she was doing it until it had already been completed and Wren was giving it to Phoebe. Such a sweet moment. Every day there’s some sweetness. Tempered with Wren screaming at Phoebe, “stop following me!” or “stop looking at me!” or getting really angry because Phoebe’s into all of her stuff. It’s hard living with babies in your stuff! I know.
Under the Bed: a new series of documentation.
I took a video of an interview with Wren at 3.5 a little while ago and thought it would be fun to document the life of my wee ones in other ways than the thousands of photographs I’ve taken. I’m always a bit surprised and amused by what I find under Wren’s bed when I get to (finally) cleaning underneath there… so I thought it’d be fun to share. What do you think?
What other ways do you like to capture the snippets of your wee one’s lives as they race by? Find anything interesting underneath their beds recently? Other than the dust bunnies…?
We are having a lazy, pajama-clad, art-filled last day of vacation. Monday it’s back to school time again! I think we’re all ready for a little bit more structure… Looking forward to taking down the Christmas decorations and getting things organized around here. How are things in your nest? Are you back to school already?
Merry Christmas, lovely readers! May the joy, wonder and peace of the season be alive in your hearts and nests. Enjoy!
P.S. the church pageant went well, Wren had a blast as “Mary” and even the Baby Jesus got to take a bow…
This picture Wren made yesterday brought me so much joy. I wanted to share it with you too! May you find some peace and joy in the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
We received Wren’s first “report card” from her Primary Montessori class. Her teacher’s comments made me cry so I wanted to share them with you too. So proud!
“Wren is a wonderful addition to our room. She makes us laugh and brings such joy to our days. She enjoys “writing,” artwork, practical life, getting snack ready, and the sensorial area. She is beginning to learn to share her friend Maddie with others. Wren demonstrates great excitement and passion for life that is contagious! She is an amazing little girl.”
She has “mastered” the following areas:
- demonstrates self-confidence
- demonstrates curiosity about the world
Proud Mama. Sniff, sniff.
Feeling grateful this Thanksgiving time for a healthy, active family. Wren ran about the first mile of the race with us then she jumped into the stroller with Phoebe for the rest of it. She wanted to jump out a few more times at some of her favorite spots around town and since I wasn’t running for any kind of PR and wanted to encourage her interest, we let her run some more. It’s such a thrill to see her run. It seems like Wren was just learning to walk and now she’s Turkey Trotting. Next year Phoebe will want to join her too. Time, it keeps speeding along.
