Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
These notes are really old, but not lost.
6/7 - Noah's first lost tooth. Bottom left front. It took a very long time for it to come out. He doesn't play with it at all..
Joy was sitting on the couch. Faith wanted to do a trick, so we asked Joy to get down. She did it willingly, waited for Faith to do her trick, and then climbed back up, without complaining.
6/20 - Noah's right bottom front tooth came out. He was eating a cookie. The tooth was chocolatey, so he went to wash it off, but then the tooth went down the drain.
~6/30 Joy steps down two stairs like a big person.
8/10 - Faith can pump a swing needing only one starter push.
8/14 - Joy was having a fun time in the bath, leaning back, nearly floating on her bath, then putting her face in, over and over.
8/20 - Noah's front right upper tooth is lost. He says, "I'm going to get money." Jon asks, "How do you know?" Faith pipes up, "Because Mommy is a fairy!"
All four of Joy's canines have appeared since the move. I did not pay enough attention to note dates for them.
8/24 - Noah did the monkey bars at the playground all by himself.
8/27 - We're at the playground. I can't hear the boys' conversation, but then I hear Noah shouting defensively, "I'm not a homo sapien!" You might imagine that until he finished the second word I was concerned that Jonathan was talking inappropriately. But I could not help but laugh when I heard what the accusation had been.
9/1 - We were visiting our next door neighbor's yard sale. The lady said "hi" to us and I said, "Say, 'hi'". Faith got all shy, and hid into me. But then I heard from the stroller, "Hi!" Joy said it several times!
9/6 - Faith's 4th birthday! It was a really fun day. We went for a walk, we went to the playground, Grammy took her out for ice cream. They had a grand old time with balloons. We had a dinner of pizza, pasta, and salad. Then Faith opened her presents, and then we had cherry 'o cheese pie and ice cream with sprinkles. (Faith actually skipped the ice cream in the evening because she had had hers earlier with Grammy). Faith's review? "That did be the funnest birthday I ever had!"
