Sister Waight teaches the 3-7 year old CTR class in English. She always plans interactive lessons with games, activities, and treats, so we may have to keep visiting her class even after we transition back to the English ward.
One of the days we went to both congregations was Father's day, so Oscar got two mini pies in each Elder's Quorum.
A friend passed down this little purple dress for Allison, and I just couldn't get over how gorgeous she looked in it. She even managed to keep her headband on long enough for me to get pictures.
As she wandered around being cute, she grabbed a kid's fidget spinner from off his lap and figured out how to get it spinning on the floor. Adorable!
Jumping on the bed with daddy! They're "so glad when daddy comes home!" They do this to me too, but I can't handle the belly jumping as long as daddy can. I do love the dog pile snuggles though.
Loving on my sleepy little sweetie after she had a big morning at the park. Luckily she'll often transition right from car to crib, but not the other way around.
Nibbler came up for cuddles while I sang Allison her lullaby book.
Allison's started learning how to kiss. One day Tyler leaned down and gave me some kisses on the cheek and then Allison did it too. She'd never kissed before. She'd make the motion with her mouth but never actually kissed with skin to skin contact before. I almost melted with the sweetness.
Here are some of Ty's interesting Lego creations. I was most impressed with the dinosaur and his figuring out how to elevate his Lego tracks entirely on his own.
|Fun at the Rogers' House!|
Funny random thing Tyler said "trees have pizza legs that are poopy to stink on."
Cute kiddos bonding over screen time and enjoying some popcorn chicken. It's hard to get Allison to eat meat unless it's breaded and small. She LOVES chicken nuggets and popcorn chicken.
Allison loves riding the mommy horsey, but mommy has a hard time keeping her stable while crawling on hard floor.
Cute video of Allison just entertaining herself reading. In the pic on the left she's diving into some leftover yogurt her brother had left out (and making a huge mess with it), and in the pic on the right she's climbing into her old walker in the back yard.
I usually feed Allison yogurt since she makes too big of a mess to feed it to herself. Tyler loves feeding her the yogurt too, but he has a tendency to stick the spoon too far down her throat and to feed her far too fast.
Cute videos of the kids playing in the car daddy made for them
Tyler looks extra cute dunking daddy
Even Allison got a turn, though she was pretty indifferent to it. She was much more interested in stomping in puddles. It took a few days for her shoes to dry.
Zumba instructor in training
She's been dancing since she was in the womb. One Zumba instructor I had while I was pregnant with her said "with all the Zumba you do, this girl's going to be a dancer for sure!" She was right!
Here's me attempting to do crafts and other Tyler themed stuff with both kids. Allison doesn't like being left out of the action, but she can't really color or play with playdoh yet. She has started scribbling a bit, but she gets bored with it quickly and wants to climb on the table.
I am not a huge fan of the color pink, but this girl just looks so cute in it.
I gave Tyler a lunchable once only to find the cheese all torn up and smooshed together. When I asked him what happened to his cheese, he replied "it's with the cheese family!"
Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A!
Tyler tried a new ADHD medication this month (more detail about that in a future post) that made him extra sleepy for about a week. We kept finding him asleep in the cutest positions. The first time was when Oscar came home for his lunch break and picked Tyler up for a hug only to have him fall asleep in his arms.
Sometimes he'd fall asleep on the couch but wake up quickly, so we'd transition him to our bedroom where we have nice black out curtains. It usually worked out.
In the middle pic Oscar carried him up to bed when he fell asleep while eating dinner and fell asleep having a hug.
And the ultimate in cuteness - falling asleep cuddling with Fry on the changing table. They told us the sleepiness would wear off, and it did, but we enjoyed the sleepy cuteness while it lasted.
