Today Cecily was speaking on demand - with the promise of a horsie ride for every word. We're big into motivation and if I have to run around the yard in circles for every word acting like a crazy fool I will do it every day of the week! Cecily said the following for each ride: Dad, animal, horse, go, book and ball. The beauty about this is she knew what she was doing and what she was saying and she knew that for each word she would be rewarded! I love this list because the sounds are very different and each word was pitch perfect!
We are so proud of our little babbling angel. Cason is not too far behind. He will parrot just about anything but he loves to try and copy Noah the best. He is always happy to have him home on the weekend. Noah is always on the go - so we're grateful when he can cool his jets long enough to hang out with us at home! He'd prefer to be skating or playing soccer with his friends these days and he is just growing up so quickly!
This weekend we had a lovely 4th of July holiday with the family. We skipped the parties and bbqs in favor of just hanging out and keeping it small. We really loved the family time and it was much needed. Life is going too fast and it is important to take time and just huddle down together and remember what's important! FAMILY!
Noah caught his best waves ever this weekend and Daddy was so proud. He's proud of all of his kids but Noah is obviously at that stage now where they can just be boys together and they pile in the truck with their boards (surf or skate) and off they go! I am sometimes admittedly jealous... as I stay behind... but I LOVE that they are buddies and that they have a blast together! And lucky for me Noah still likes Mommy to tuck him into bed and read him his book.
Onwards and upwards!
