Some of our fall decorations around here. Sunflowers from Amaanda and our leaf lanterns. Hazel is proud to tell everyone that she made the lanterns.A little update on the kiddos: Hazel is jabbering and talking all the time and seems to learn new things every day. She is into drawing circles and ladybugs and is always trying to count things, though the order usually is "1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 3." We're getting there.
A fuzzy, but cute picture of Hazel cuddling with Klaas on the floor.She's starting to speak in sentences sometimes, but most of the time her phrases are commands: "sit it", "fall it", "down", "push it", and of course, "baby crying!" Her most favorite thing in the world to say though is, "I'm fine." This always pops up when we ask her to do something she may not feel like doing (coming, taking another bite, getting in the bath, sitting on the potty, etc...) so it can be a little funny, but now it's a banned phrase since it has been happening so much. She is such a joy and we love our after-dinner devotional time since she talks about Moses and Egypt (we're reading in Exodus) and can answer several catechism questions. It seems every week she's singing more words in the Lord's Prayer than the week before. Quite the little sponge! Except I need to watch myself more carefully since she now has said "Oh shoot!" when dropping something a few times. Little ears...
Our little lumberjack.
Coloring and looking like quite the big girl to mama.
