Do you wanna build a snowman?


Of course, she named him Olaf and he likes warm hugs 😊

when we came in she was saying "buy Olaf!  We'll see you later!"

Look at the moon!

Daughter loves to look at the moon.  We find the window in the house that we can see it from, and we just stare at it and talk.  Mostly just "It's so beautiful!" kind of stuff.

I think this is her first "obsession" that we're going to take as a learning experience.  I've heard from homeschooling friends that they allow their children to follow passions and research them.  This doesn't seem like "school" to the kids then and they learn a lot because it's what they want to be studying.

So, next time at the library, we're getting moon books! :)

Pre Natal Appointment

I went with Birth Mother to another pre natal appointment.  It went great!  Everything seems to be on course for the due date.  I heard the heart beat again!

It's so surreal. 

We have so much to do!  I got done with my Christmas shopping today.  Woot!  That's one thing off the list. 

One month to go!

Hide and seek...

I love to play hide and seek with Daughter.  It's so cute!

First of all, when I hide in a new spot, she can't find me forever no matter how obvious it is.   

My interpretation of what goes on in her head...
Why is the shower curtain closed all of the sudden?  The thought doesn't bother her in the slightest.  Why is my play tent bouncing as though someone is in there stifling giggles?  Huh, that's a bit odd.  Why has the quilt on the bed suddenly grown?  No worries... I'll just start to call "Mama... where are you?"

Generally, I won't say anything until she's at least in another room; but when I do call her name she says, "Mama, I can hear you!"

Eventually I either give myself up by talking to her when she's in the room, popping out when she's near, or just wandering out and saving the hiding spot for a later game.  We laugh.  It's so much fun!

Then  it's my turn to count.  As I'm doing so, she inevitably comes and touches me.  She either taps me or just lays a hand on me, either way, I know right where she is before I open my eyes.  Then when I am done counting, I grab her and tickle her.

We laugh.

Oh, how I love hide and seek.  :)
