Wow! It's been forever since I last posted, so I guess I'd better put something out there to keep people coming. So, here are a couple of stories about the girls...

Anna wrote her name for the first time all by herself yesterday. It amazes me how she seems to learn things in bursts. She's only really been interested in drawing circles and lines for a while. Then a couple of weeks ago, she started drawing As, and yesterday she wrote an M and was so proud of herself. I showed her how to make an N instead (which she knows is in her name), and before I knew it, she was writing her whole name! Can't believe how big she's getting!

Abby was eating her dinner tonight (yummy pureed sweet potatoes) when Anna walked by and said something that distracted be from spooning the goodness into sweet Abby's mouth. As I turned to answer Anna, I must have left the spoon just hanging there tantalizing the poor child. Unable to wait any longer, she reached up, grabbed the spoon and jammed it right into her mouth! Couldn't believe the coordination! I'm trying not to overlook these early times, but the more she learns the more I can't wait to see her grow. Soon enough I suppose.
I'm hoping to get some more house progress pics up soon. Things move kinda slowly out here (as you may have guessed).
