Right after waking up this morning, Miss Alex found her foot. She refused to be distracted from the ultimate goal-- putting said foot into her mouth. All throughout her morning rituals, she worked hard, but her mean mommy made her put some shoes on so she could go to school.
Alex's first art project took place this morning. Miss Susan, our ECFE instructor, brought lots of crafting materials so that we could make Valentine's Day surprises for our Daddies. I don't want to give away too much of Dave's surprise, but I'll let you see the pictures and you can probably figure it out from there. Most babies cried or squirmed when paint was applied to their little feet. Not Alex-- she's either a true artist, or a very kinesthetic learner who is going to do her fair share of getting dirty while playing. Either way, we ended up with a very cute 'surprise'.
This was a funny picture. All of the moms really seemed to get into the craft (probably because it was an 'assignment' that we had to do, and it gave us some interaction with other adults), and the babies were just kind of left to their own devices. Luckily, no one is mobile yet, and Miss Susan was there to entertain the "abandoned" babes.
