Also, we have decided to start doing some Montessori lessons and activities with Macy. This was my New Years resolution. So we started reading, getting activities, and learning as much about it as we could. I really just wanted to send her to a local Montessori school and then hang out at Starbucks until it was time to pick her up but realized I'd be working more just to pay for her to go. Sometimes having a husband with an excel spreadsheet available at all times is even less awesome than it sounds. So we decided that I could do most of it myself with her at home. The hardest part is being organized and on a schedule. We just started Monday and we love it so far! Only a few hours a day of organized play time. Introducing new colors, practical life activities, and developing fine motor skills. If anyone has any advice I'll take it! I'm not expecting too much out of this since she's only 20months and I have a very limited knowledge base on the subject, but hopefully she'll learn a few new things.
Maddi is on level 14 in Reading now! I couldn't be more proud of her. This is nowhere above average, but if you knew where we started.. Her and Macy have started sleeping in the same (twin size) bed together and Maddi says this is the best thing about her life! I love the love that she has for her sister. I love the little lady that she is becoming. Attitude and all.
Josh's birthday is tomorrow and we all can't wait to celebrate him! I am so thankful for the father that he is. And so proud to be his wife!
Here's some pictures of Macy enjoying some play time while Maddi's been at school all week!
Just waking up and jumping on the bed!
Looking for her blue bowl that I "hid"
Still looking for it!
She found it!
Watching the loud trucks
Singing and playing
Transferring some water
Isn't she getting big??
So thankful to have another on the way!
