Archive for the day “August 9, 2012”


Days 2 and 3 of camp were better – but there were still tears involved. Yesterday, Z was already crying even before we got there and we had to distract him with the iTouch. He was clinging on to us and not wanting to let go. A staff had to pry him away from us. This morning, he was good until we let him out and he realized that we were leaving him again.

I noticed that he had a sticker on his shirt Everytime he comes home. So I asked who gives it to him and he replied, “I don’t know.”. So I asked was the reason he doesn’t know is because he’s usually crying when he is given a sticker. He stopped to think. I think that’s the case.

He goes to the potty to pee and he is extremely excited to see us when we pick him up so that’s a good sign definitely. It’s only 2 weeks long so I really hope he will enjoy it more because he will be going there for school in september.


Today after Z woke up, all he wanted to was be by himself. He watched tv quietly, played with his kitchen and food toys and playdoh -about 1.5 must be the weather.

V has 2 teeth and she likes to bite things that are bigger than her mouth. Peaches, apples, plums, balls, you name it. She wants it.

V has been surprising us a lot lately, ever since coming back from our trip. While feeding her risotto, she shakes her head to indicate “no” and points to the bottle of water. She also did the same thing with my car keys at Leslie Cafe.

Her walking/cruising skills are getting better. She definitely is wanting to move around like her big brother. She can pull up on most things – including walls, and when she does, she has this proud look on her face. Occasionally, she lets go of her support and stands on her own for a few seconds, up to 15 seconds sometimes.

Food wise, she loves to gnaw on ahold fruits – maybe she likes the feel for her teething gums. She will see a whole peach or apple and will scream if she doesn’t get it. And when she does, she happily chews on it, juices dripping everywhere.

Today, after we picked Z up from camp, V was playing with the iPod touch. Z saw it and asked for it and V reached out from her car seat and gave Z the device. M and I were so impressed.

Our little girl is growing so fast. I can’t wait till she starts talking.


After dropping Z off to camp, the three of us usually go shopping. Today it was at Michael’s. We found a log of deals, especially Martha Stewart stencils. V saw the pumpkins at the front when we entered and wanted one. She loves ball- looking things.

One of our favorite places to eat is Leslie Cafe. Z alway insists on looking at the menu as well. He’s so grown up sometimes. Lately he has been really interested road signs and safety symbols. Almost all the time when he sees them, he asks what they mean. So cool.
