These Kids of Mine

Monday, August 24, 2009

Who could resist that face? His laughter is infectious. What a fun silly boy he is. He is expanding his vocabulary. In addition to da-da and maaa (only when upset), he greets us from his crib with a "hi". And well, the rest are all related to eating (his favorite hobby)..."mmm, yummy, it's good, more".
And Katie, my little dancing princess. She started dance at the Little Gym this summer and loves it so much that we are switching her schoolyear class there from gymnastics to dance. She'll still get 20 minutes of gymnastics in the class so it's a win-win situation. I catch her practicing her moves throughout the day and she has really been putting on some great shows for us lately. Her favorite part of class is the "free dance" portion - but I love that I can pick out her actually trying to practice the specific positions and moves that she is learning in class. We'll see where this takes us. For now, she's definately not ready for a real dance school and as an honest mommy I don't know that she ever will be. I'm not quite sure they could handle her spunk and it may get hard if the other kids start pointing out that she has the grace of a gorilla. If anything, it will be jazz or hip-hop for her. But she is having a ball right now and I couldn't be happier for her.

This has been a great summer for us. I love that I've been able to spend the entire summer home with my kids. I love the spontanaity it has allowed and all of the fun things we've been able to do. I'm starting to smell September, though. The cut grass smells smells like soccer, football, and first days of school now. I've been getting a few recruiter calls and am being told the job market in the accounting industry is picking up again. I'm ready to go with some "resume" and "relaunching your career" books I've picked up from the library.

I'll always treasure this summer I had with the kids and just remembering all the fun activities, silly smiles, and dress-up/dance shows Makes My Monday. Be sure to stop by Twinfatuation to see who else is playing along or to sign in for yourself.

Those photos are GREAT. The middle tutu one of Katie is my favourite I think, and Timmy just always makes me want to smile! We did a bit of baby sign with both our boys and 'eat' and 'more' were winning words for both of them!

I do wonder what Katie and Lion would get up to if ever they met up.
