Tallulah and the microphone

Tallulah really likes playing with Microphones, so Stew took the opportunity of having a mic hooked up to a little amp to get some good language opportunities with Lu! She’s doing really well with echoing language. This was filmed a few months ago in the summer out in Lu’s playroom on the ranch. Go Lulah! Go!

Fall fun

I love the Fall. Fall and Spring, my favorite times of year. Bright and crisp, cool in the mornings and evenings, warm when you stand in the sun during the day. Stew and Lu enjoyed a little time on the trampoline on Friday. Weeeeeeeeeee!

Go Myffy Go!!!

I thought it might be fun to try to upload a few videos of the kids here. I do occasionally take videos on my iphone but never think to post them. If this works I might post a few more from earlier in the year.

This was from back in the summer when it still made sense to wear short sleeves and shorts in Flagstaff. I think this was Myffy’s first time trying to walk Wheezy all by herself. I think she did a pretty fantastic job! Go Myffy Go! Go Myffy Go!

Halloween

Lu loves dressing up. She loves her ballet clothes with frothy tutus. She likes princess dresses. So of course I thought, she’ll love Halloween. But I should probably know by now that when I set up an expectation like that, something is bound to go wrong. Lu did not like Halloween. She did not like it at all. She only stayed dressed up for about 20 minutes, refused the gluten free/ dairy free pizza that she is now allowed to have from Picazzo’s Pizza and spent the entire evening somewhere between quietly weeping and loudly crying. Finally, after we were out of candy, turned off the lights and went to bed, she whimpered herself to sleep as we cuddled. I think it was just too much, too confusing and I think she kept thinking that I was going to leave her. Chock that one up to a good lesson. Hopefully next year we can find a way to make it feel safer and be more fun for her. Myffy and Wheezy had fun dressing up at least.
