I got this Thomas The Train Sticker Activity at Marshals for $3.99. Caden loves it because the stickers come on and off and they are not sticky. I am not sure what the product is called but I have seen some on Oriental Trading.
Yesterday seemed to be a long day because after daddy got home from work he went surfing and he didn't get home until 7pm. He is usually home around 5pm. So we had to be a little creative. It was our first time playing hide and go seek. Very funny! Caden didn't get the concept of hiding but loved looking for me. He would put his face up against the wall and try and count. Wish I had a pic of that!
We went to Salvation Army and found some good little toys for cheappppp (they are in great condition too)! I got tunnel for 3.99 and boy did they have a blast! A fisher price cash register for 2.99, and a fisher price little superstar at a Little Bo-tique for 14.99. They had a lot of fun. (The links are just for looking at the pictures I got these items at Salvation Army and The Little Bo-tique)
I have posted before about this great blog for tot lapbooks and website for lapbooks. Here is another one we have created from their great ideas. This one Caden was more involved. He did enjoy this one better because he was involved. He also is learning the order of counting by this lapbook. We counted ants, I had him glue the amount of ants for each number. The next morning he pointed to the screws on his bed and said 1, 2 in order. So our next practice will be 1, 2, 3! Yeah I am so proud of him!
My little girl is so sweet!!!!! She is now 8 1/2 months and has been crawling since she was 5 1/2 months. She has just started to stand for a couple of seconds on her own and just started waving, and holding her bottle (when she wants to). I love this age when they reach so many milestones it seems like almost everyday.
I feel so bad for her at times because brother is sooo rough with her, he thinks she can play just like him. It is almost to the point of every time Caden passes by her she cries because she thinks he is going to push her or tap her on the head etc. She is defiantly going to be a tough little girl and learn to not put up with it when she gets capable of standing up for herself! We constantly discipline Caden for it but everyday it is still the same thing. It is a boys instink to annoy!!!! I had a brother and he was defiantly annoying at times.
It has been almost a week since I have post! Well to recap, Valentine's Day was very nice. In the morning I made red heart pancakes for everyone. Caden gave his gift and cards he made to Daddy. Caden got some cars for Valentine's Day, Daddy got some homemade cards and two new shirts, and Mommy got a few hours a way to get some clothes for myself. What a great hubby!
