Brilliant Kids

I just wanted to make a new post. I don't really have anything new to say, except for updates on our brilliant kids. Meadow can spell her name now (saying it, not writing of course). I write it for her in the bath with her bath crayons, so she knows what it looks like. She likes to pretend to talk on the phone. Lately she says, "Hello, this is Janet....OH HIII!"(Expressive Janet John style). One of her favorite things to do is ride her springy horse named Frank. In this picture of her she's making her froggys ride some animals. She's getting very imaginative in her play now. It's fun to watch her.

Logan is wearing daddy's soccer shirt. Each month I've taken a picture of him laying on it to show his growth, since he was about 2 months old. He'll be 10 months tomorrow. He still won't crawl, but his vocabulary is growing! He has learned the words gramma, cracker, and what's that? (his version is what-daa) as he points to things. He learned that one from Meadow. He also gives the worlds loudest kisses.."MMM-AAAA" as he bashes his wide open slobbery mouth into my cheek! It's very sweet. I suppose that's something only his mommy can appreciate!
And last but not least, Spud probably grew a little, and maybe sprouted some fingers and developed some organs....keeping busy in there! (This is not an actual picture of Spud, just a picture of a typical 6 week old fetus.) Isn't it cute? I found this picture on . It' s a very good website with lots of information and you can track your baby's development.

I admit it. Your children are very smart! Of course they come from some good lines! And, they are fun!

I really enjoy your kid stories -- you REALLY do have brilliant children. 10 months is early for any kind of vocabulary!
I really like that babycenter website too -- I must have looked at it a million times during my pregnancy!
Blessings to you . . . :)
