Now I know my ABC's

We are so proud of how much Raeann is learning. Here she is singing her ABC's! The singing came after the knowledge of the letters, actually. I swore I would not teach her the song until she actually knew what she was singing about, so she could recognize them and name them all several months before this! Yes, I'm bragging like a proud mother should!

Not a clue

I have no idea how to even start this post since its been so long since I've done a post! I hope all of you have been checking facebook as there is so much more on there! We are nearing the end of our summer. We went to MI for two and half weeks and enjoyed celebrating with Mike's brother in his wedding. Other than that, we've had a beautiful summer fun of playgrounds and pools. It is so nice to have a child who is active and wants to get out. Despite not having done much as far as sight seeing and hikes go, I can't complain. My child has learned to use her manners on the playground with other children, saying "your turn" and "go, boy!" She's learned how to go up an assortment of ladders and down large slides by herself. She's experienced going down a two story water slide with her Dada (many many times) and loved it so much she continues to talk about it days after. We've even come quite far with the potty training! So here's some pictures of the highlights, though if you are my friend on facebook you've probably already seen them...
