First Halloween for Lambikins!

Yes here it is, Halloween.

I was thinking about putting Lam's Star Trek onesie on underneath her warm baby giraffe costume but the Star Trek onesie is currently missing and I don't even have a photo of her in it (maybe one on my phone but I can't figure out how to get pics off my super-old phone onto the damn com!)

Son is going out as Green Lantern this year (last year he was Captain Kirk) and we don't have Rhyme Girl this year since she's at her Mom's.

But I am going to post a pic of the kids from the past 2 Halloweens just because.

4 teeth for Lamb

Yeppers, the other top middle tooth has poked through the gums!

And in food updates, Talia tried sweet potatoes for the first time this week, so she's had avocados, sweet potatoes and banana so far.

Fun with Rhyming

Little Man just said, "If you ever want to call [Lamb] a drama queen you should call her a llama queen instead."

Because both Little Man and Rhyme Girl have been told to "cut the drama" before and Lamb has a toy llama that she plays with quite a bit.

That statement made me laugh this morning.

7 months old

Wow, Lamb is a healthy 7-month-old!

She is getting better with the "mama ma mum" sounds but she still uses them generally rather than specific to myself and she also makes a sound that could be "boo" "blue" or "boob" and since she tends to make it and then open her mouth like a baby bird, I'm guessing it's actually "boob" but again, it's not specific or consistent.

Right now it is still more of her experimenting with sounds rather than definitely identifying things.

Little Man said his first word "mama" when he was 7 months and 1 day old so I am getting nervous re: Lamb not doing it yet.

It's been tiring around here

The wee lamb isn't sleeping well, Little Man is staging a revolt against wearing coats, Rhyme Girl has been at her Mom's and due to my MIL being in hospital the other week and some other things going on, we had arranged with mother-of-RG to have Rhyme Girl this wkend but then MORG insisted we'd never arranged that and that she has other plans and such so no RG this wkend :(

Lamb has 3 teeth so far and I've finally been able to snap a pic that at least reveals the bottom 2. 



We've gone for a few nice walks on a nearby trail lately and, in other news, Little Man got his form stripe in Kung Fu.so he just needs a 2nd stripe and then he can participate in the next grading (which happens in Nov).

 OK back to my MIL -- she's doing really well, perhaps miraculously so, considering how bad it got for her.

That was really, really scary.










T. and I attended two autism-related seminars in the past bit re: Little Man though due to a scheduling change that I wasn't informed of I did not get to attend the non-violent crisis intervention training and I now have to wait until the end of January for it to be offered again (they are carrying fwd my deposit).







Next wk I am doing CPR training Mon and Tues night (as President of our Board of Directors here at the co-op, the costs are covered).

I have a Board meeting on Thursday and am also busy on Wed so T is in charge of the kids next wk in the evenings.
