Serenity in July…

Some quick notes from Serenity’s journal for July before I post about school!!

“I’m sorry, I just LOVE to build puzzles.  I LOVE to build.”  Apologizing to Henry for taking his puzzle apart without asking.  She kept repeating to me, “I LOVE to build!  I LOVE to do puzzles!”

 

Serenity was eating cherries with me this morning and decided to do one by herself.  So she bit it in half.  The pit was still in the other half, so she dug it out.  I was about to congratulate her on figuring out how to eat cherries when she stuck the pit in her mouth and then spit it into the bowl…And then ate the last half

And she told me, spit rhymes with pit!

 

“Hold it” Eric said, “Hold it!”  when Serenity was having an accident.  So she reached under and tried to hold the pee with her hand…  Didn’t work so well. =)

 

I said, “I love you Serenity.”  She replied “We are in love” =)

“I’m a cradle!  Donovan likes to lay on me.  Are you a cradle Mama?”  As I was holding Donovan in the rocking chair at the time, she decided I was indeed a cradle.

 

Found Serenity trying to be helpful today… She had a bottle of foaming hand soap and she was squirting it on the carpet and scrubbing it.  Guess we’ve had our share of potty training accidents.

 

“I pooped and peed on the potty!  That means I’m cool and awesome!”

“I better answer the computer’s question!”

Serenity has a new IPAD game, “Stack the States!”  Henry had it on his computer so we decided to get it.  Since her birthday, she’s learned all the states by shape!  And she can find them on a blank map.  She’s also learning some of the state capitals and landmarks.  She especially likes Little Rock, Juneau (which sounds like Jen-U), Hartford, and Pierre.  I’m pretty sure she likes Pierre because she calls it “pie-er” So it sounds like pie.  She is pretty sure that Alabama should be pronounced Ambelina, and it sounds so cute I don’t insist. She is newly obsessed with everything map related and we love indulging it since we love maps too.  I got a world map vinyl sticker for her hideaway, and we’ve put together her us map puzzle several times.  She can answer about half the questions all by herself now.  If it asks abbreviation or what state borders another, she can figure it out by looking at the name and using a picture a blank map respectively.  I help her still with most capitals and landmarks, and we are both learning the states nicknames!   Such fun for us all!

Serenity using the easel Grandma got her! Thanks Grandma!!!

 

We made a knight costume in honor of her Backyardigans addiction =)
