Eleanor went swimming for the first time two weeks ago. As with everything else in life, she LOVED it. She was a little apprehensive at first but within a few minutes she was putting her face in the water, kicking her legs and splashing up a storm. We made four trips to the pool while we were in Dallas and by the end E was even going under water. Look out Kirsty Coventry we may have the next Olympic swimming gold medalist in our presence.

Update On The Way

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. I just returned from a 10 day trip to Dallas where I spent 6 days taking a class on Sequential English Education. I have a TON of pictures to upload and will then get them on the blog. See you soon!

What Do You Say?

Here are the top five things said in our house these days:

1.) Be careful - our little kamikaze has no fear. She is into everything and is in constant motion.
2.) No biting - E is experimenting with her two (almost three) little chompers. In fact, this evening as we were getting ready to put her to bed Daniel pointed out some "scratches" on the crib. These "scratches" are from E chewing on her crib.
3.) Be gentle - Kamikaze is a roughy toughy! She definitely knows how to hold her own.
4.) Let go - along with experimenting with her chompers, pulling hair is Kamikaze's second favorite thing to do.
5.) Sit on your bottom - this phrase is most commonly used in the bathtub. Kamikaze likes to try and stand up, surf, swim, crawl, etc. all while in the bathtub. I think this mama gets a new gray hair each night during bath time.

What are some common sayings in your household?
