Phew-Wee what a week. This may have been the most trying, tiresome, rewarding week I have had in the last 7 months. My sweet little one was not the happiest baby this week which is completely NOT normal so anything that got done happened while holding her and trying to make her happier which was NOT an easy task. She did however have a lot of firsts this week which included saying her second word “dada” (her first was mama :) ) getting two teeth (hence the cranky baby) pulling herself up onto her knees but not knowing what to do once up there, and army crawling backwards.
Anyway I thought I would hop on board 5 for Friday with Doodle Bugs this week. :)
As I mentioned above, doing anything without a 7 month old on my lap was pretty much non-existent this week. I was working on a few projects and to appease her I let her play with my scraps…Who needs expensive baby toys when your daughter is perfectly content playing with paper…and bottles…and baby washcloths.
I was able to get a couple projects finished. I managed to get my Thanksgiving Thematic Unit updated to match my other units. It received lots of extra pages as well as some font overhauls. A post will be coming this weekend with a more detailed look at it.
I just finished uploading my Thanksgiving Flip-Flap book that is a perfect compliment to my Thanksgiving unit or any Thanksgiving unit for that matter. It includes 6 pages (2 differentiated versions) for students to complete.
This week was a week of digging up the road in front of our house and making one heck of a commotion. I was not a happy camper between having a pounding headache, little sleep, a baby who couldn’t nap because of the noise, you get the picture. I was sooo glad to see them go after 3 days of noise.
And lastly, I was so excited to get a couple of our little one’s first Christmas presents in the mail. She will not be getting many and what she does get holds multiple purposes, but its so exciting to be buying for a little one and i cannot wait to share our first Christmas morning as a family of three :)
