Son is one!!!

He’s 31.5 inches (96%) and 29 lbs (99%).   His head is 95th percentile so he’s pretty big all around. 

Wearing 2t clothes. 

He’s walking everywhere!  

He has 10 teeth, 4 molars, and two more I teeth coming in. 

He says mama, Dada, papa, gamma, hi, bye, and just today said “sista” for the first time!  He was pointing at her picture!

He loves food!  Favorites are meat, noodles, peas, raspberries, and crackers. 

He has had bad ear infections and will be getting tubes later this month. 😞

Because of that (and the constant teething) he has not slept through the night for at least a month. 

Even though he is so uncomfortable he is still very smiley and happy. Eager to explore and laugh- he loves being chased by daddy or sister. 

We are so blessed to be his family!  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

School is fun!

I love when Daughter gets excited about school!  She asks to do it!

Yesterday’s lesson was Joshua and the battle of Jericho. We built the walls around a city, walked around it for “6 days” and then on the 7th we walked around 7 times with trumpets. 

I love the fun ideas in My Fathers World curriculum!

Molars! And ear infections!

Son is obviously upset here. His FaceTime with Grandma just ended. But it’s a good shot of his two lower molars!

But he enjoys how they help him chew! 

This little man is going through a tough time.  The molars are tough to cut, but on top of that he’s got ear infections that just won’t go away (we’re on his 5th antibiotic!)

He’s got a consult with an ENT set and our pediatrician said he’d probably require ear tubes 😥

Christmas cookies and crafts!

Daughter’s favorite part of baking Christmas cookies is unwrapping the chocolates 😜

She said that’s her (she was an angel in the nativity play)

Making paper plate Santa’s 

Both kids love getting some daddy time in during his vacation from work   He helped us build the wall Santa 🎅

We made wreaths

Our curriculum called for us to make Christmas Wreaths today. 

But then we found out that Son could reach the top of the table...,

He sure looks proud of himself!

Noodles change into pretzels

A few nights ago hubby put some pretzels onto Daughter’s plate after we had left the dinner table. When she came back into the kitchen she said “my noodles changed into pretzels!”

When I went to tuck her in she had to tell me all about it. I laughed hysterically!

The next day she was eating leftovers (my favorite food to make!) and she excused herself to go to the bathroom but said “watch and make sure my noodles don’t turn into pretzels”
