Kate has a thing for Zach's sippy cup. Whenever I give her milk in her own cup she tolerates it, but when she sees Zach's cup unattended, she rushes over to it and excitedly drinks from it. It's quite funny...although Zach doesn't find any humor in it. He quickly snatches his cup away whenever he sees Kate drinking from it. And then Kate gets mad. It will be interesting to see how well the two of them get along as they get older because they are not off to a good start. Most of the time Zach is doing what he can to make Kate's life miserable and Kate in return "talks back" and swats at him. Never a dull moment OR a peaceful moment with the two of them around in the same room!
Kate is done nursing. She has lost interest, and she doesn't like formula, so we are giving her milk. I think she's going to take after Zoe and be a water drinker because she'll drink a little bit of milk, but she mostly drinks water.
While reading our local paper awhile ago, this headline caught my attention..."Kindergarten sign-up". I'm anxious for Eleanor to start Kindergarten and she is anxious too, but it's weird to think that she is old enough to go next year! She seems younger and less ready than Zoe and Emily were at this age. Less ready in the fact that she has no interest in learning her letters and being able to write letters, which were strengths for both Zoe and Emily. But Eleanor will have her own strengths, right? I think Zach knows his letters better than Eleanor, so I guess that will be his strength too. Eleanor is going to be the social butterfly...I hope she will be able to sit still and be quiet long enough to learn something. I'm sure the parent/teacher conferences about her will be interesting! I'll have 3 in school and 3 at home. Weird.
I'm starting to feel the new baby moving around more and more. I'm going to miss this part of pregnancy. I love to feel the baby moving around in the womb!
And last, but not least I need to thank PJ here for my newest award (which I have been trying to put on my sidebar, but can't seem to remember how to make it fit like the others).
Xandra from Heart of Service has created this fun award. Here is what she says: "It's for blogs that I must read every day without fail . . . They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post..."
I would like to pass the award on to:
4 for Me
Call Me Grandma Dawn
Living la vida loca
Mama's So Called Life
Sugar and Spice...Everything Nice?
The Wilson Family
These are all blogs that I keep updated on and feel like a slacker and so out of touch when I don't! (and PJ is on this list too, but since she already received the award and gave it to me, I will give her an honorable mention.) Keep up with the blogging my friends and continue to make me laugh, cry, think, and feel...I need it!
