First Word!

Henry spoke his first clear word today (he will be 10 months old in 3 days). He has been saying "ka" and "dree" for a while now (cat/Audrey), but not clearly. But today, today, he said,

"Highchair!" while we were working to soak/scrape/scrub the gucky gick off of his highchair.

Interesting choice of first words as he has little to no interest in being in his highchair at any time. But there it is. Highchair!
The best part of this is that he KEPT saying it, even allowing me to run and get the digital sound recorder thingie so that I have evidence of this early speech proficiency. Should anyone need to hear this, just give me a call and I will proudly play it for you. Highchair!

Talent, We Got IT!

Look at these three! So great! Henry is very good at smiling, and at sitting in apples. But not both at the same time (yet).
The girls have recently discovered a love of swinging like primates through playgrounds near and far. They LOVE that they can do this now. They also spent the better part of last Sunday afternoon jumping off the BIG diving board into the DEEP end of the BIG pool. Amazing!

Happy Fall!

Two men in brown, at the apple picking place on Sunday.

One girl in pink, using a huge leaf as a parasol at the park last week, baby in background scoots around in a circle, making mysterious sand circles with his bum at the centre.

Another girl in pink (and brown, and white), screaming at the top of her lungs with lovely, just turning leaves in background. Happy Fall!
