Today at dinner Ava demonstrated that she knows what sounds all the letters of the alphabet make. I had no idea she knew that, I guess she picked it up from Drew and the various leapfrog products we have in the house. Here is video documenting her genius:
After dinner Drew was working on a peel and stick by number dinosaur mosaic kit. You have to peel little tiny foam squares off a big sheet and stick them on the corresponding number to make a picture. Drew was cracking me up because he is so much like me! He was peeling the stickers out in straight lines, just like I would do it. And he also kept commenting on how hard he was working and what a good job he was doing and looking for affirmation. Just like me! He is so stinking cute!
Here is a picture of the kids in the new warm jammies I got them today. It's been freezing here at night (well, by California standards).
Tomorrow Drew has his cardiology appointment. It's his first big cardiology appointment (echo and EKG) since we got back from Stanford. I have no reason to believe that anything is wrong, but I am still a little tiny bit nervous. I hope Drew does ok through the procedures, since he was pretty traumatized by the time we left the hospital in May. I think it will be ok, but we welcome your prayers for a good appointment.
I recently started making nursing covers and diaper carriers. I started making them as gifts for friends and thought I might be able to make some extra money if I tried selling them. So, I have set up an etsy site at www.himmelberger.etsy.com, but I need your help. I don't have a name for my store or a banner. Please leave a comment with your idea for a store name and if I choose your name I will send you a free diaper carrier.
