i love reading about all these little baby, ahem, toddler stories!
the language is awesome. linnaea is just so sweet about everything, "here you go," "thank you," "oh, okay,".
she can also do all the ten shapes in the tupperware red/blue shape sorter on her own and she knows, get this, circle, diamond, square, almond, rectangle, and dome.
the dome has a funny story, the same book has a semi-circle and so she points to it and says "dome." and i told her, "well honey, that's sort of a dome, it's upside down." so she turns the book around so the shape is pointing the other way and says, "dome" and i was like, "well, yes, i guess it is a dome now."
she also LOVES puzzles. like, she'll do the ones i bought for lazlo that he never touches. we have this one: http://www.hapetoys.com/Product.asp?ID=BEL17125
and she will take all the pieces out, one by one, and then flip them over, one by one, and then if you start at one side of the ocean for her she will grab the continents and put them where they belong. she even rotates them to make them fit.
i am totally bragging
but it sometimes amazes me her ability to manipulate shapes in a way lazlo never did (and still doesn't).
she occasionally pees on the potty but it's mostly by chance when she's naked. every time i am motivated to let her go we end up with pee everywhere (on the carpet) and i just can't do it.
lauren- every mama i know doing a PhD has said it's _incredibly_ difficult. i admire you so much for keeping on with it.
dea- yay boobies making milky!! poor trixie, it sounds ouchie whatever it was, i'm glad she's feeling better.
megan- i really hope that your dad's new partner is a wonderful woman that just came across wrong because she was nervous. like, there are so many benefits to being bilingual it's not even funny.
s how's tristyn doing with you working?
rynna- my cat was hyperthyroid and it was like she was on crack. she never slept, lost a whole bunch of weight, and puked all the time. we got her on meds and she sleeps all day and is porking up (back to a healthy weight) nicely. the meds are amazing.
sarah- you are awesome to be so supportive and not pushy for your sister. really, that's the best approach i think. flies, honey, vinegar all that.
whew! typing one-handed this took me forever! linnaea is sleeping on my other arm
in news for us, we are moving to corvallis, oregon. i actually was accepted at all three schools i applied to but this one has a program specifically for teaching science so i picked OSU. and, i'm done! must read to the little boy!
