One of my kids’ favorite things to do is to put on concerts for us. They’ll grab their toy musical instruments, use a foam sword as a microphone and sing their hearts out. Maybe someday I should get them an apogee mic to add to their little show, but for now, they’re loud enough! I can only imagine the noise with a real microphone instead of a foam sword!
Kaylee had her 2-month checkup today and she is 12 pounds, 5 ounces and 22 inches long! The little girl is chunking out! She is in the 78th percentile for weight and the 50th for weight, so she’s a chunky little shorty! LOL We also found out she has ridiculously small nasal passages. She is also snorting and I thought it was from congestion, but nope! Hopefully they grow soon, because she sounds like a little piglet! LOL
This Friday, I’m going to teach Ava’s first piano lesson! I’m so excited to start teaching my kids to have a love for music. Piano will be their foundation and who knows where they’ll go from there? Maybe they’ll learn to play the trumpet, the guitar, a woodwind brasswind , or something else altogether? I kind of hope they want to learn the flute because I can teach them that in addition to piano.
Today was the first day of our 2014-2015 school year. Ordinarily, we would have started earlier, but with Kaylee’s birth at the beginning of August and our trip to Branson at the beginning of October, I decided to wait until we got home to start. We’ll end up doing school into the summer next year, but it will be fine.
This year, Ava is in second grade and Kelvin is in first grade. Add a toddler and a newborn to that, and you have a recipe for chaos! It was chaos this morning, and Kaylee even slept until 11:30 am! I can’t imagine how chaotic tomorrow will be when she doesn’t sleep in (she rarely does). It will certainly be an interesting year!
