Colors

Edited to add my toes (just for you, Trisha!)...


I like color in my life. :) Colors make me happy, and apparently they make Dima happy too. A couple of months ago I had painted my toenails pink. This is very unusual for me and I don't think the boys had ever seen my toenails painted before. Then I had a (my first ever) pedicure at a wedding shower for my sister. The boys had requested that I paint my toenails either pink or dark purple. I opted for the pink, which they liked. Then Dima requested that next time I paint my toenails dark purple. It took me awhile to find my dark purple polish (go Frogs!) but I did and last week I painted my toenails purple. You should have seen the excitement in our house! LOL

I love being able to do things that bring my kids joy. :)

Next Dima wants red. Hey, as long as he's requesting it for my toes and not his own, we're all good. :) :)

Yesterday, I took Dima and Emily to speech. Unfortunately (I thought at the time), I had forgotten that Emily's therapist was going to be out of town and she didn't have therapy that day. So Emily and I hung out in the lobby while Dima went to therapy. And Emily and I worked on her colors. The therapy lobby has these cool marble grids with different colored marbles. Emily loves to play with them. She loves the texture and the sound they make as well as all of the different colors. So as we played, I would say things like "oh, you found a red one" or "that's a nice blue one" and so on. After a few minutes, she started pointing to different marbles and saying the color! I was ecstatic because when she came home she had basically no knowledge of numbers, colors, shapes, etc. She is picking up on things so fast and it's so awesome to see. I know she'll do great in preschool--it's me I worry about. ;)

I wonder when he'll start asking for green or blue or something fun like that!

LOL I gave the boys the choice as to what color I should get at the pedicure--fully expecting orange or green or something like that! But they picked pink and purple. Surprised me! :)

Congrats on the learning time with Emily. She will continue to amaze you in this next year! HUGS!
