Back to School

Today marks the day that we return to school. It is time although I have thoroughly enjoyed my summer with my girls! I have done a ton of nothing. I have been super busy trying to relax, decompress and regenerate. I am almost there. I am excited to see Flora back to school with a better schedule.

Speaking of signing.....

Flora still signs. I am a firm believer of teaching signing to children. She has been signing since becoming a family in January. Now she is starting to add some speaking to her signs. She'll sign and say the word simultaneously. I have not taught her enough signs honestly. She is becoming more and more frustrated as her brain is way ahead of her speaking skills/ability. So she has started a screaming and grunting thing. It is driving us all nuts. We can't wait for her to be able to communicate her needs and wants to us more clearly. She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants and what she absolutely wants no part of! I still can't believe that she is here. Our lives are wonderfully complete!

Still Sigining

After the last post it is important to relay that Flora's favorite new sign is......ICE CREAM! We have the refrigerator on the bottom. Flora now walks over to it and signs ice cream. Hmmmm, I think she truly enjoyed the ice cream experience.

First Ice Cream!

Following the tradition we started, the first ice cream cone must be:
~In a cone
~In a high chair, sitting outside
~Wearing only a diaper
~With a camera
