Brielle's First Time Reading

Brielle is reading! I've been working with Kaylynn on reading real books, and Brielle wants to do everything Kaylynn does, so yesterday she grabbed a book and started sounding out the words. The book was much too hard, so I got the first Bob Book for her to try. And she read it! We got book two on video, and after that she read book three. I was pretty impressed for so much success on her very first try. I haven't worked with her on reading at all, but she's picked up quite a lot from school happening around her every day. Maybe I won't have to teach her how to read at all. That would be weird.

Emberly is 6 Months Old

Emberly is 6 months old!Yeah, how did that happen? She is sleeping through the night occasionally and takes three good naps a day. She seems to be working on some teeth although they haven't popped through yet which has led to some fussy days. She's eating lots of pureed foods and likes everything she's tried so far, but really doesn't like having her face wiped. We're working on sign language for "milk," "more" and "all done," and I think she's trying them out sometimes. She says da-da and other cute babbles. Emberly sits and stands with support and is a pro at rolling. Her favorite place to hang out is the jumper. She'll try jumping if she's standing in your lap, too. Overall Emberly is sweet, patient, curious, and likes to snuggle and giggle. I'm enjoying all the snuggles I can get in between school lessons and food prep. She's a joy!

Sniffy Face

 Emberly recently started doing the "sniffy face." She scrunches up her nose, puckers her lips and sniffs in and out. I love how babies pick up on humor so early! She is playing around with her expressions and being funny.
It reminds me so much of Kaylynn who had the same phase of doing a sniffy face to be silly. She was nine months old at the time and remains very expressive to this day. Emberly is starting out even earlier just shy of 6 months old. I have no shortage of expressive girls!
