AGHHH!! Back to work!

Well, I knew it had to end and I officially started back to work this past Monday. My niece Tia and my mother are watching Sarae for the summer and everything is going smoothly. By the end of the week, Sarae had adjusted fine to my being back to work. I'm amazed by how much she has learned in the past three months. She can now twirl around, say "Wow", point to her toes when you ask her where her toes are, will take keys to the front door in an attempt to open the door, give kisses, yells "hey" at the dogs when they start barking (I do this in an attempt to get them to quiet down) and sits on Cody (our black dog) when he lays down. It's already warm so we have spent some early afternoons playing in her water table. She has great upper body strength and can actually pull herself into it and pretends it is her pool. She also likes to crawl into the kitchen cupboards to pull out even more containers. I've always said that Sarae reminds me of a boy with her high energy level, climbing, running and bouncing. Don't know if you can tell, but in the last picture, she is sleeping with a remote in one hand and her drink in another - just like a man! : )

Baptism and Sea World

Sarae was baptised on April 22nd and didn't even cry when she was doused with water 3 times. Lots of friends and family were there to watch and then came over to shower her with more gifts at the house. Sarae also went to Sea World for the first time. I was worried she would be too young to enjoy it, but she loved it. She especially loved watching the dolphins in the underground viewing and made the other people laugh as she pointed and talked to them (the dolphins). She also kept calling them dada, still haven't gotten around to that talk : ) There's a new Sesame Street show and when she saw Elmo, Ernie, Cookie Monster, etc. she stood and screamed at the top of her lungs - very cute. Hope everyone is managing to stay cool - it's already in the high 80's here in Florida.

Take care!
