Typical sequence

Hopefully I can catch my readers up on our busy times lately, but for now here’s a fun sequence of events. Can you read what the box says?

Ezzy in the box!

When I took Josie and Zach to the zoo the other week it was very empty. We even got the entire gorilla exhibit to ourselves and initially the gorillas were all laying around sleeping like my cats. Eventually though the baby got up and came over to us at the window to look at us, which scared the pants off of Zach and Josie. I was in awe, but of course with the upset kids, had to go. After I took the photos.

The games we play

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 by Jen

Josie has started to play games that require some imagination and creativity. Hide and seek is a favorite. One she likes to tortureĀ  us with the irony of play with us is to pretend to ‘sleep’. We each have to have our own pillow and blanket and she’ll lay down for a few moments before she declares herself ‘all done’ and that we should ‘get up’.

Also pictured below are her ‘monster’ pajamas which she insists on wearing almost every night. I ventured over to the boys side of the store as I was sick of the pink and I’m glad I found her some other fun clothes. There are even a set of eyes on the feet! For now, monsters are like any other animal she’s never seen in person, just a drawing that we’ve told her what they are. I wonder when fear of monsters will kick in?

Run froggy run

Josie had two costume for halloween since I didn’t know which one she’d tolerate and they were both too cute to leave in the thrift shop. She wore one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Here she is mid-sprint in her frog costume. She would not put the head piece on for more than a second and she looked miserable with it on.

Pumpkin Painting

Sunday, November 8th, 2009 by Jen

Last week Josie got to practice painting for the first time with something more than water. We got some pumpkin paints and she was extremely studious and intensely concentrating as she put the paint on the pumpkin. I think we’ll have to do some more painting since she was so intrigued, too bad it’s such a mess! Yes, that is blue paint on her face.
