it's fun to see him discovering more opportunities to interact with
Madelyn. This week, he has become her "Activities Director,"
entertaining her in various ways. I think it helps that she now
notices him and rewards him with smiles and movement.
I have a friend who sometimes pays her older daughter
to play with or entertain her younger one.
Now I can see why...I'm saving up our change!

Then, open wide...
(She resourcefully grabbed the dinosaur flashlight to check his throat.)
Elisha always checks the ears.
Since he has had numerous ear infections,
he often discovers that his patients have one too.

For all of you who are part of the "outside world" and who may not get the opporunity to keep up on the latest and greatest preschool shows, let me introduce you to my new favorite, "Wonder Pets." The preschool show features three pet friends who work together to help animals in trouble, while singing opera-like songs. Sounds a bit silly, but it's actually quite entertaining! Perhaps the best part is that each episode encourages teamwork and the role each person can play in the adventure...a good reminder for us all, regardless of our age. It's worth checking out if you get a chance...I love it!

Just a quick update on Madelyn...three months old...going on 11 pounds...over 21 inches long. People who see her for the first time usually say something like "She's so tiny!" while Jim and I are thinking, "She's getting so big!" I guess like many things, size is relative. But, as you can see from the above pictures, she is healthy and happy (usually), so we are grateful.

Then I realized that the last post on out blog had been weeks ago. I have photos stored in our digital camera that need only to be downloaded and posted. So, I have decided to repent and to strive to apply the golden rule of blogging: to blog as I want others to blog. Beginning tomorow...
It's no secret that I like Martha Stewart.
My brother bought me a subscription to two of her magazines:
Martha Stewart Living and Everyday Food.
I watch her television program when possible
(meaning when I am somewhere that has satellite or cable.)
On occasion, I even attempt some of the projects she does.
But, I am pleased - no proud - to say that only one
of the above projects is from Martha Stewart.
The other is one I created on my very own.
(At least I think I did..I can't ever remember
learning it from anywhere or anyone...
unless I forgot and stored the idea in my subconscious.)
There goes that overactive conscience, Robin!
So, which do you think it is? Who created what?
