A lot has happened in the past few months, in addition to the other updates, here are a few photo updates:
Philip had his first ear infection. Happened during the child care crisis
Amazing what some drugs and numbing ear drops do for an uncomfortable boy, within a few hours of taking his first dose he was about 83% better. No wonder the doctor and pharmacist stressed the importance of him finishing all the medicine, and not stopping when he felt better.
Phil bought Natalie a Play-Doh cake making station
She loves it and loves making cakes for everyone
I found this idea somewhere, not sure where. I took big slices of watermelon and let
Natalie cut it up with cookie cutters. She went through at least 4 slices in this sitting.
Natalie & Philip had a 4th of July parade at school - which basically meant that they walked down the hallway way too fast for me to get proper photos. This is the only one that looked okay
Natalie had ballet photos taken at dance class - this side head pose comes out when she wears that tutu
A few days after her class photos they had their year-end recital
(see the side head pose? She wouldn't take her photo any other way)
She loved being on the stage - this is after the show, she insisted on
going back up on stage to dance again, this time solo
We took down the crib, no more babies here. Philip is officially in a big boy bed and has been doing pretty good. He is still not a great sleeper, but at least he is in his own room.
These are from our recent trip to St George, Natalie was very impressed because she caught her own lizard this time. Every night she let the new pet go, and every morning she would catch another one.
They were all named Hoatio
Tea Party on the patio in George
Auntie let Natalie try another face mask - which she LOVES
