Let’s see, I don’t have dates for these, but they weren’t happening before, so we’ll get them on-record.
Elisha is jumping now.
It started with jerky one-steps off a low stair and has progressed to a full-grown hurling of himself from any permissible hight to the next-lowest point.
Permissible is defined as anything Mom or dad has not prohibited— whether or not it’s been noticed yet.
I twisted my ankle last month (most readers know this already). I am mostly recovered and would be functioning normally (I believe) except I just got slammed with this nasty viral sinus infection.
I still couldn’t move quickly– because of the ankle– and now I’m in a state of thickness and near-confusion as my senses struggle to function normally through inches of displaced fluid.
Had a nice visit with a new friend a couple days ago (I hope she doesn’t get what I got– two littles of her own). She enjoys writing and talking about ideas, so we had a grand time. Definately pushed the kids to the edge of their napless abilities.
I know this because Melody put herself to nap as they were leaving, and Elisha had difficulty going down, which was abnormal.
Have I already said that Natasha reads? She can read both silently and aloud, and her inflection is wonderful. The first time she reads something aloud it usually sounds as I read it to her, but once she owns a story and grows in confidence the inflection becomes uniquely hers.
It is really fun.
She’s even able to read the Bible aloud, but she doesn’t like much to do it. Which is a little disappointing because our current Sunday school set-up has lots of opportunities for children to read aloud, and we brought her out of the 4/5-y-o class to participate and she’s not been very interested.
