Lions and Cows

Lately, we've been working with Chloe on recognizing animals and the sounds they make. Now, this is not as easy as it seems. There have been many times when one of us has made a sound for an animal and the other's been like, "That's not what that animal sounds like." :) Hopefully, Chloe doesn't get too screwed up by this. I guess we should just take her to the zoo. 

Anyway, Matt has taught Chloe how to "roar" like a lion. :) My sweet, innocent Chloe crawls around on the floor roaring. She also knows how to "moo". Her favorite book is Moo, Baa, LaLaLa by Sandra Boynton. She picks it up and says "ooooooo" as she hands it to us (or throws it at us, which is usually the case) for us to read to her. She is a little delight to our lives! We laugh so much! 

Chloe has reached the point when she is absorbing everything and catching on so quickly. She recently learned to brush her hair, and she also realized what her hair bows are for. She picks it up and presses it to her hair, then lets go. She looks at me like, "Is it pretty?" Chloe knows what to do when I ask her if she is hungry; she goes straight to her chair. She knows what a tree is and says "tee." She knows what a light is and what a dog is which is called a "dee." Everyday she seems to learn something new. It is SO exciting to watch her learn about her world. We feel so privileged to be able to teach her!

Thanks for your sweet comments! Aww Chloe is so cute! I bet you are so proud of her:) Children are so fun!:) Can you imagine having 5 at one time? There's a famiy here in Cedar Park who had quintuplets (you can read about them under my links) and it just amazes me!

I hope you guys have a great Christmas!! Oh, and about the Christmas stockings...I ordered them from JCPenney. They've been on sale lately for around $12 plus shipping and free monogramming! Anyways, Merry Christmas!

Oh my, what a cutie-pie. I'm sad to miss you all this week. I asked Dad & Amy to save any On-the-Border coupons for you. I look forward to seeing you Christmas weekend.
