Playing at the park
My family at the temple
Playing with Sammi – Joy is her Padawan!
Joy built Mat Man (Handwriting Without Tears) for the first time. Before now she has just watched. We were all so proud of her!
Playing around – she has to watch Strawberry Shortcake at least once a day and parallel playing with Bella.
Preschool pictures from this week: An indian, a pilgrim, and a very tired little girl
I love this – she is developing a sense of humor. She whispers into your ear some gibberish and then giggles. She is telling a secret.
Yeah for Cookie Dough!
I love Joy’s hair! I just can’t bring myself to cut it. The memory I have of Joy’s mother involves long hair. Her hair was really long – probably to her waist. I am attempting to French braid. You would think after six girls, I could do this. But, no. I am learning on Joy.
Joy loves to slide, but hates being dirty! I thought this second picture was so funny!
And this picture – I love it!! Bella doesn’t/can’t eat regular food – but she LOVES tastes! So if Joy goes in Bella’s room and she’s eating something, she gives Bella a “taste.” It’s so sweet and they both love it. She takes whatever it is, pushes it towards Bella, Bella sticks out her tongue, Joy places it on her tongue and then scraps downward a little (the taste), then takes the food back and eats it. Everyone is happy! I think it’s adorable!
I love these pictures – Joy looking at a book. And then the second one. She saw that the dog’s dish was empty so she got the bowl, went to the bathroom, got the sack of food, and put the bowl in. Now she couldn’t figure out how to get it all out again – but I loved all that thinking and planning. Yeah Joy!
Jessi’s birthday lunch and going downtown with Bella. Joy was an angel during Bella’s appointments. We were there four hours and she sat in her stroller the whole time. I was so grateful!
Getting balloons at the store the lady just gave Joy this balloon for free. Joy was so excited!! She kept saying , “Yes! Yes!” And the girls playing together – I love it!!
She was sick for a couple of days and I was worried about dehydration. Then I remembered her love obsession with ‘Joust” (juice – her word for soda). Anything carbonated with a straw is wonderful! Problem solved.
And pushing sister on her birthday. Joy would push her and push her. Then she would stop and say, “ More or done?” It made me laugh!
Playing super hero with her sister!
