This Thanksgiving week we were thankful for a lot. First, for everyone being healthy enough to go to Thanksgiving dinner events for the first time ever. Secondly, for time off of work and the ability to spend lots of time with family. Finally, we were thankful to resolve some very unpredictable well water issues that left us without water in the home for the past 10 days. Ah, the joys of being homeowners!
Needless to say, we've been a bit busy lately. Here's what the little dragons have been getting into lately.
Book: Hop on Pop, Five Little Monkeys
Song: "Head Shoulders Knees & Toes", "Five Little Monkeys", & "Five Little Ducks". Currently learning Holiday songs.
Words: Currently Maisie's into curse words. We are trying to figure this one out. She is also trying to figure out the subjective, objective, adjective and possessive pronouns of the English language. Maisie is also very good at predicting things to come.
Food: cheese, cookies, pancakes, waffles, avocado, fruit snacks, blueberries, beans, rice, tortillas, quesadillas
Animal: dog, kitty, monkey

Book: ABC by Dr Suess, Hop on Pop, or any book with a ball in it.
Song: "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", "ABC Song" "Row Your Boat".
Words: James is learning new words every day. He can say complicated sentences like "I'm rolling on the green ball" (while completing the activity). He is also Maisie's copycat, for better or for worse.
Toy: Ball, shopping cart, drum, flashlight, turtle, seahorse. James loves to conduct a "symphony" by gathering all the musical / noise making toys and playing them simultaneously. He usually leaves to play with a ball and comes back only to restart one of the toys that's stopped playing. It's pretty challenging to listen to, but we try to be thankful that James doesn't have sensory issues with lights and sounds from the NICU like some babies.
Food: pancakes, waffles, snickerdoodles, chips, fruit snacks, peaches, applesauce, pasta, chili, tortillas, cheese.
