An update on the Wee-Oneder

N has started to do something this month that makes her parents (us) proud beyond anything else. She'll pray with us. Not all the time not even half the time but sometimes she'll see us and she'll "fold her arms" walk over to us and sometimes kneel! and close her eyes and bow her head. What could make a parents more proud then their one year old praying with them!?

Another shinning moment is N will sometimes pick something off the ground and take it to the trash can. Granted that "something" isn't not always a piece of trash and sometimes a book, but she's getting the concept. Just a little more work and yeah! I have a little helper in the making :)

A quirk about N is when she walks, half the time its with an arm behind her back. Sometimes makes me think of how Napoleon is portrayed in movies, short, kinda chubby, one arm behind his back only N isn't going for the world conqueror goal.

One thing we are NOT thrilled about is she has started temper tantrums. One incident was we went to the pond with the ducks on the south end of campus so she could chase after them and walk them from their naps. Only when it came time to leave I had to pick her up since she wouldn't walk away and and she immediately arched her back, stretched out, stiffened her body and started to scream. So not an OK reaction. So we'll be working on that.....I'll let you know how it goes......Well, here's N before things got ugly.

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
