Art Day at Church

Last week we had an art day for preschoolers and siblings at church. The kids hadva great time. We made chalk, a chalkboard/dry erase board, painted ceramics, made a mosaic picture, and used modeling clay. The kids had a blast!


Elijah made a wonderful elephant out of clay. It was really good. We were so careful and made it home with it in one piece. I never got a picture and last night he dropped it and it broke. I am so bummed I did take a picture. He was upset, but ok about it!

Elijah's Day

While Sarah was at camp, Elijah and I had a date. We ran to target first, where he found a toy he wanted. Lol, he can always find a toy he wants! Then we went to a ceramic place and painted some pottery. We get them back in a week. Of course, I had my camera, but forgot to get pictures! Then we went to Olive Garden for lunch. After lunch it was haircut time then off to get Sarah. We had a great day! Plan on taking Sarah for a day next week since she only goes to school 3 half days for kindergarten phase in.

Conversation with Sarah

Last week Elijah went to music camp. On Mon and Thurs, Sarah went to camp at the therapy center. On Tuesday, I knew she was going to have a fit when I dropped off Elijah and she didn't get to go, so I tried to prepare her:
Me: Sarah, Elijah has camp today, but you do not. We will go home and play ok. So no crying.
Sarah: ok

We get to the church and are pulling up to drop Elijah off.
Sarah: I no cry
Me: yes
Sarah: Elijah go, I no go
Me: yes, baby
Sarah: me cry now

Poor baby. I really wanted to cry after that. She actually did very good and only cried a few minutes.

Dancing Feet

After Sarah turned her ankle a few weeks ago it has been very unstable. She has turned it several times and fallen numerous times, so her PT had her fitted for ankle foot orthotics(AFO). We got her AFO's yesterday. They are cute with little butterflies on them.


They are really short so with frilly socks they will be totally covered. Unknown to us was that the company making her AFO's also provided us with tennis shoes to accommodate the AFO's! Totally free to us!


Here is the AFO in her new shoes.


Sarah says they are her dancing shoes!


We feel so blessed!!!!!

Somebody got some explaining to do...

A certain unnamed little girl's OT will be very proud of the skills to accomplish this art work(open marker container, open marker, draw with enough strength to be seen and then hide the marker, ok the last one is not an OT skill technically), momma was not so proud.









Thankfully it was a dry erase marker and came out fairly easily. Got to Sarah proof Elijah's room now that she can open doors,yep that is an OT skill too!

Too tired to eat

Sarah fell asleep on the way home from church last night.


She was too tired to finish her fries!


Unfortunately she woke up when I tried to remove the fry before she choked! Went right to bed when we got home.

Sarah at therapy

Came across these pictures today and don't remember if I had ever posted them. Can not believe how big she has gotten. She has accomplish so much in her 4 years and has taught me not to take anything for granted. I have learned to appreciate so much more and celebrate life fuller through her.

Seven months old

Isaac was 7 months old on Thursday, 6/30. I kept thinking about it all week so I could get a picture on his actual 7th month date, but of course I forgot on Thursday! Here he is on Wednesday during his home therapy:


Isaac is now about 17-18 pounds, 27 inches long. He is wearing 9-12 month clothing and size 2 shoe. He wears a size 3 diaper, but I will be buying size 4 this week! He is by far my easiest baby. He rarely cries. Isaac means laughter and he is living up to his name. He laughs all the time! He rolls everywhere and loves to be in the center of the action. He is a hair puller. He sits unsupported for up to 5 minutes. Mostly, he is just too busy to sit still. He wants to crawl so bad and I know very soon he will be. I really need to baby proof the playroom! He is drooling and chewing on everything so a tooth should be coming in soon. He makes the m,b,d sounds in addition to cooing. He loves his brother and sister and wants to be with them. Isaac is a joy and I am so glad he is my son!

Fourth of July Kids

I am almost up to date on my blogging. I hope that I can stay caught up and do some more in depth blogging. Adjusting to 3 kids has been hard, but well worth the efforts. My kids bring me so much joy. I am so blessed to be a mommy.

We went to Pop-Pop and Karen's for the fourth. Their neighborhood had a firework show that Friday. Here is Elijah with the military helicopter:


Sarah eating a cupcake:


Isaac being a cutie:


Sarah did not like the fireworks. She finally cried herself to sleep with me covering her ears. Isaac never acted like he heard them and then fell asleep. I think we will be getting a more in depth hearing test in the very near future!
