{p,h,f,r} What we have been learning...

The kids have been given a reprieve from the bulk of their schoolwork since Cupcake arrived. It's why we started early back over the summer. But that doesn't mean we aren't learning things like:
{pretty}
How to hold a pretty baby


{happy}
Proper happy snuggling techniques


{funny}
How to accessorize your baby and...

 that some babies don't like to wake up and find they've been accessorized.


{real}

Why in the world mommy has a mini-megaphone. BigBoy came up with that one. The Professor thought it looked more like an air horn. At least nobody guessed sonic freeze ray!

Right now,  I'm learning that it's really hard to wait for airplanes to arrive!

    When I see that last picture I shudder thinking about how many times my toddlers have turned the pump to maximum - "turning it to 11!"

  17. She is so cute! I find that my gosling doesn't mind waking up to being accessoriezed, just waking up outside of someone's arms, she deems that insulting in the highest degree. It looks like her sibs are just as infatuated with her as everyone else. Congrats!
