I enjoyed ya’ll comments on the last post!!! I promise, more will be coming.
This picture is so precious to me! I love how Keshawn practically wraps himself around me.
His first word is so funny (beside “ouch”-which I’m not sure is technically a word).
Keshawn’s first word is “ehp”... which translate into “help”. The reason this is so funny is he understands one thing about this word - when he uses it we all come running. If he wants outside to be with the others, he says “ehp” to get the screen opened by someone. His leg was stuck a few days ago, and he kept saying “ehp” over and over until Kiana and I realized he really did need help. When he wants out of his highchair it is “ehp”. We hear a “ehp” when he wants to be pushed in his play car.
I would say we have trained him very well...O.K., so it’s the other way around.
However, there is one thing he can say without words...he will get his bottle off of the table and bring it to me....that’s pretty good “sign” language for hold me!
So, some of the children have begged me to do what I do several times in a summer with them....sleep outside under the stars in our sleeping bags. We have some old twin mattresses that we set up to make it more comfortable for us. I’m not sure how this came about, and even though a part of me would really like to be in my bed with my husband, this has become a little tradition. So, I will be enjoying nature tonight with some little people and thanking the LORD for the fun and the beauty tonight.
Are ya’ll enjoying your summer...what is your favorite thing to do? I would love to know...please do share!
