Speaking my language

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Sometimes talking with a two year old feels a little “lost in translation” A conversation I had this morning:

Lucas: Mom…I fell down.
Me: Oh that’s too bad, what were you doing?
Lucas: Crying
Me: No, what were you doing before you fell down?
Lucas: Standing

Baby’s hard work

Stella has been so active and alert these days, it’s really fun. She loves tummy time, which Lucas never did. Here she is reading a classic, with her robot toy.

And she seems pretty interested in the playmat with dangling toys, too. (pw=pitanga)

Stella meets her grandparents

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Over July and August Stella got to spend a lot of time with her grandparents. Now, after 2 months, we are beginning to settle into our new routine. It was so wonderful to have this special time with our parents this summer!

2 week old Stella with Grandma Jan

And a bit older with Grandpa Clark.

And here she is Skyping with Thomaz’ dad and grandmother in Brazil

And Thomaz’ mom just left after spending three weeks with us in August.


And of course Lucas misses all the extra attention too!!
