First Day of School

Claudia and Henry started at a new school a couple of weeks ago. They are enjoying it and doing lots of art.

Camping photos - at last

We are finally putting up pictures from our 2nd annual Triangle Fun Junkies Labor Day camping trip. Lots of magical animal, hiking, some sleeping, and wine and beer and bourbon for the big people. Let's do it again next year!

Claudia Jane

Claudia has some new fun things she is doing. Firstly, we are all thankful that she has started giving closed-mouth kisses! She puts her lips in this sweet little pucker for you to lean into. She is also big into holding hands - which I love! It is mostly as a means to get you where she wants you, but it is very sweet.
She has been slowly growing her vocabulary. She is so pleased that she can say one thing that she just runs with it - for instance she uses "up" for all directions, including "down" - this can be frustrating for all. She can also tell you what a cat says - "maaw" - only it seems that all animals say this exact same thing! She says "oh! no!" as you can see from the little video below - and "cupcake" as every little kid should know that one!
We can't wait for more words and expressions to come tumbling out soon.
