Good Girl

Angel & Seraph
For a long time now, I've felt like Seraph understands what's going on around her even though she doesn't communicate much.  Lately she's starting to really show that she understands!
When we came home Friday, I ran upstairs to turn off the beeping on her feeding pump.  She immediately burst into tears when I left the room.  (like babies do when they see mom leaving). When I came back, I learned it wasn't me she was missing at all!  On the way home, I'd told the girls we could watch Dora when we got home.  Then, I'd run upstairs before turning on Dora!!  Naughty mommy!  Seraph pointed at the TV and said, "Dora, Dora!!"
Good girl!

We've been sick a lot this month.  I've kept Seraph home for preschool for the last 3 weeks.  Today, as I was helping her get dressed, I told her that she would be going to school today.  After we came downstairs, she started talking about her shoes.  I left to grab a brush....and when I came back she was holding her backpack and pointed out the window and said, "bus!" The bus wasn't here yet, but she knew it would be coming for her :)
Good girl!

She's been letting me snuggle with her lately. Yay :)
Last night she practiced falling (onto the bed) and letting me comfort her.  We played this game over and over. She'd fall.  I'd ask if she was OK or if she bonked her head or if she needed a kiss or if she needed help getting up.  She led me through lots of scenarios.  This is one of my favorite games because....this morning when she really did fall down, I knew exactly what to say.  and she was immediately comforted and went on her way as if nothing had happened.
Good Mommy!

I Can Do it Myself: the MakeUp Edition

The girls like to get into my makeup.  It's a nightmare.  They smear it all over the cabinets, floor, bed.  They mix, dig-out, and dump out everything.  So....we made a deal.  When they want to play with my makeup, they come tell me.  Then I get to help them.  Then it's not so destructive.  So, don't tell Dad, but here's my pretty girls:
Finch applying her eye shadow

Seraph loved the blush best

Angel wanted blue!

she did pretty good for no help.
Her blush was a little low

Finch helped Seraph
and liked the colors

This gives me hope that I'll
be able to do all the girls' hair
before school each morning


Seraph kisses!

Angel kisses
I love this picture!

Halloween Party

The girls woke up early today to attend
Seraph's preschool Halloween Party!

Seraph LOVED being a kitty-cat just like Finch.
She even LOVED wearing her "ears."

the girls played lots of games

Seraph wasn't very interested in decorating cookies.

Instead she found a HUGE spider and
played and danced with it for a LONG time.

Angel making sure she had all her treats

Delightful Finch showing us how to
blow the bubbles

Seraph enjoying her "pet" spider.
Other games included:
  • Halloween pictured Bingo (Seraph knew all the pictures, and she'd say the word then put the candy on the correct picture.  My jaw dropped.  Amazing!!)
  • "Fishing"
  • Ring Toss (onto a blow-up Octopus)
  • Cookie Decorating
  • pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern
  • Halloween bowling (they put socks over the toy bowling pins to make them look like ghosts...and we bowled them with toy pumpkins)
  • making Monster hands (food services preparation glove filled with popcorn with candy corn as the fingernails. Seraph loved this one the most because they'd filled a water-table with popcorn instead of water and she thought it was crazy fun to play with the popcorn.)
  • Story Center (TONS of Halloween books for us to read to our kids while they sit on chairs or bean bags.) 
We might have been stuck at the story center all day.....luckily they have a fish tank by the main office so I was able to tear them away from the books.

Give me an "A"

My new keyboard came today.  (The spacebar on the old one was half gone...somehow).  I love the new one - logitech - I wanted a keyboard with a sleep button...but not one that's the easiest button in the world to press :p
So, I gave my old keyboard to Seraph.  She was delighted!!
 I didn't expect her to completely destroy it so quickly.  (I didn't even put bbq sauce on it!)
Once she realized I wasn't going to yell at her for biting off the letters, she really went at it.
Once she finished demolishing the old keyboard, she went straight to my new keyboard and started typing on it.  I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me nervous.  But, at the end of the day, my new keyboard was still intact.  Does that mean she can tell the difference between new and junk?

I was transferring the Red Vines to a Zip-lock bag.  The kids were all downstairs except Seraph, so I thought it was safe. Seraph said, "Mommy, I want some RED."
Now, that counts as talking, right?  Can she officially be a talker now?
Yes, I gave her the candy.
Yes, she promptly threw it on the floor instead of tasting it.
I guess one miracle is enough for today ;)
