Happy Fall

These kids love helping Daddy rake leaves.

Poopy on the Potty!

S’s school doesn’t mess around with potty training. When they show an interest the underwear goes on. She’s been wearing underwear to school and coming home with wet clothes pretty much from the beginning of the school year. We sit her on the potty but she has not gone at school or at home. At her parent teacher conference last week I said I wasn’t ready to be serious about it and I wanted to wait until after the new year, just before she turns two. And what do you know – last night she POOPED in the toilet! Guess we will see if that’s a total fluke or the start of something new.

Counting to 10

This little lady is growing up so fast. She’s got lots of opinions and can hardly wait to be able to more fully express herself verbally so we’ll finally know what the heck it is she’s been trying to say.

Getting in the Halloween Spirit

The girls got a chance to wear their Halloween costumes early at yoga last week. They dressed up as Curious George and The Man With The Yellow Hat.

10-17-14 Halloween Costumes

 

R and I also got into the Halloween spirit with a quick one night getaway to Salem, MA. We took a haunted lantern tour of the town, spent the night in nearby Beverly, MA and then spent the next morning exploring Salem. It was great to getaway and nice to get into the Halloween spirit. Salem is definitely a place we’d visit again when the kids are a little bit older.

Singing Video

I feel like S is about to have an explosion of language. All of sudden she’s starting to finally put words together – “more milk please.” She pretty much sings Twinkle Twinkle and ABCs.

Blog Update

Feels like it’s been a little while since I linked to my CTWM blog links. Here’s what I’ve been up to over there:

Take Your Daughter to Work Day

Well, not exactly, but it was a jewish holiday. So, R brought M to my office to have lunch. I gave her the tour – introduced her to our mascot (or at least unzipped the bag where they keep the costume), took her up to the 22nd floor, through the tunnel and to the cafeteria. I showed her my desk, complete with her artwork.
