This and That

Lila's Curriculum Fair at school was this week. I didn't take any pictures, but we got to see all of the projects they've been working on in school. They made melting snowmen, penguins and polar bears and did some science experiments with ice. We also got a chance to check out what the 4 year old class and the Kindergarten class have been working on as well.

Then, on Thursday, I got to help out with the Valentine's Party in Lila's classroom. I really enjoy being a room mom and having the chance to see the kids interact and meet all of Lila's friends.

Cara also had her 15 month appointment on Thursday. She weighs 20 lbs 13 oz and is 29 inches long. That makes her 25th percentile for weight and 10th percentile for height. The doctor was impressed with her verbal skills and how social she is as well as her fine motor skills, so she's doing great! She is getting more independent every day. She walks all over the house and is perfectly content to explore on her own, but she still likes to be in on all of the action and to keep up with her siblings. I took her to story time at the library this week for the first time and she LOVED it. She listened to the story and clapped along with all of the rhymes- it was adorable to watch her have so much fun!

Cara can say Mama, Dada, Nana, Pa, Lila, Ian, shoe (still a favorite, she's obsessed), cheese, chips, thank you, paci, drink, more, bowl, this, sheep, ball, pool, yay!, hi, bye bye, boo, okay, and yes. And she knows quite a few animal sounds too: woof (probably the word she says the most), quack, baa, oink, neigh and moo. Plus, she can make a fish face and knows that a bunny goes hop hop hop.
