Is the cup half full or half empty?…. always half full in this house.
I mentioned a few times how I am trying to learn Spanish and teach my children a second language. At first, it was easy to teach them numbers, colors, shapes, and little words here and there. As we learn together, I was at their same level. But kids are like sponges and learn so much quicker than old Mommy here. So this week I have been hitting the Spanish books hard to keep my education one step in front of them. Not an easy task I might add but it’s something that has been on my bucket list my whole life.
I have been sitting next to Missy Moo in anticipation for her to pull herself up and take a step. She much prefers holding Mommy’s pinky and walking around the house than to try crawling forward. She stands at the couch holding onto the edge and I am just waiting for her to turn and take that first step. My camera is ready to capture it. I was lucky enough to video most of Buba’s first milestones in the same way. Although it does mean a lot of watching and waiting….but I am ok with that to capture that special moment.
We finally broke down and bought Frozen and Buba keeps asking me, “sing the songs Mommy pease?” So I found them on YouTube for him as I can’t really belt it out when we have friends over. Even though I secretly don’t mind doing it when it’s just us. Although it wasn’t a good sign when I woke up yesterday singing in my head, “the cold never bothered me anyway”. I think it’s time for a new Disney Movie already, perhaps Monsters University next.
It’s been a week full of making things, from Easter cookies, Easter baskets, homemade soups, to other mini projects around the house. Buba is finally at that age where he will sit longer than ten minutes and concentrate on mini craft projects. Here are two of the many things we made this week. Click each picture to find out more.
Missy Moo is wearing her very first pair of jeans. She has had the odd pair of jeggings but hadn’t strutted jeans yet. These jeans from Next have the relaxed skinny shape which was so cute and matched the pair Mommy bought for herself from Next too. Although it made her look so very grown up and I may have shedded a tear or two. Why can’t they stay babies longer?
I have been working on my Pinterest boards, getting them better organized and updated. If you haven’t seen them yet, check them out here and let me know what you think? If you are not on Pinterest yet, I shared “How to set up Pinterest for your blog” yesterday. I didn’t think it would make much difference but just in 24 hours of organizing and linking my posts, I have experienced a lot of repinning and sharing going on. I wish I would have done this months ago.
