So Sweet.

A little note from Sylvia's friend, Sophie.

I love that Sylvia is a social butterfly.  She has a lot of great, sweet qualities that I would look for in a friend.  I am not surprised at all at how many little friends she has--she really is one of the nicest and happiest kids that I have ever known.  Boys and girls alike flock to her, and I find it fascinating!  Now, sometimes I have noticed that Sylvia can be a little too nice, and she ends up being a door mat.  That is something I have to keep an eye on, because her feelings can get hurt by kids who are a little blunt, or who have very dominant personalities.  But overall, Sylvia is a child who excels at making and keeping friends.  I love that about her.  Not only does she occasionally bring home notes like this, but she also brings home pictures that her friends have drawn for her, and sometimes they even give her little gifts like necklaces and bracelets.  So so so cute.

Henry is 11 Months Old!


What Henry's Up To At 11 Months:

  • Henry is no longer interested in crawling.  He is a fast walking nightmare!  He looks adorable running around, though.  He has taken to walking a lot quicker than my other two.  His coordination is also improving by leaps and bounds every day.  If he falls down, he crawls to the nearest piece of furniture, or a wall, pulls himself back up and steadies himself, and then he's off again.  Amazing. 
  • He's still letting me spoon feed him, but he needs a minor distraction to get the entire meal finished.  Thank heavens for matchbox cars and measuring spoons.
  • He slept all night last night (hooray!).  Sleeping through the night is still not a regular thing, but we are crossing our fingers that all night sleeping happens soon.
  • Is now liking being read to, which is great!  Henry also loves to play "This Little Piggy" with his cute little toesies.  And he still loves to play patty cake and peek a boo.
  • Absolutely loves to play with his siblings.  And they just accept him and incorporate him into their play.  It's perfect.

Halloween Cuteness

The kids wore cute costumes.  We carved pumpkins, ate yummy food, went trick or treating, and we visited some great grandparents.  In short, Halloween was fun this year!
