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.
4/10 - Noah comes up to me, winking, and says, "Mommy, me one eye!" It was hilarious. (I couldn't wink until first grade.)
4/11 - Guess which story this is, by Noah: "Let me in. No, no, no. Blow up house!"
4/20 - What does Noah say when the smoke detector goes off? "Timer!"
Faith has a neat pincer grasp and feeds herself finger food easily.
4/14 - Faith is starting to pull herself up onto furniture. The problem is, she can't get back down without falling.
I have moved her on to 12-month size clothes, and her legs still stick out. She's going to be tall!
Jonathan has been reading more and more. He's gotten some Step Into Reading: Step 1 books from Grandma and borrowed some from a friend, and he loves it! 4/17 - He called to me from the other room, "What's that crazy word again? The one with the 'k'? Right. 'Now he knows...'." I hadn't realized before watching Jonathan read this that a "silent k" turns the present into information.
We borrowed WALL-E from a friend a few weeks ago, and the boys love playing "WALL-E and Eva". Today, Jonathan made a WALL-E costume out of a cardboard box without any help. He made a cube of trash out of Duplos, and asked me to make a little paper cockroach for him. He can fold himself all up in it, but then his arms and head come out of the sides and top when he's ready to work again. There's a little flap in the front for his trash compactor. He labeled it with his warning light and power meter, and a nice WALL-E on the flap. Look for pictures and video on the pictures page later.
