Alexander and Jordan
April 17 - May 2, 2006
Alexander: We had to say goodbye to Grandpa and
Memere today. They were here for the last six days and we had a lot of fun
together. Unfortunately it rained almost everyday so we had to stay inside
the entire time. The best and worst part was that they bought us baseball
gloves, but we could not go outside and use them. We did go places though.
We went to the Science Museum, the Community Center and the Mall of America.
Mommy gave me my first piano lesson this week. She taught me the difference between the low sounding bear and the high sounding duck. I can tell the difference between the black and the white keys too. Now I am really excited to continue until I become a concert pianist.
Jordan: Grandpa and Memere played with me a lot
while they were here. We played chase, peek-a-boo, and tickle. It
was nice to have somebody other than my parents to play with.
I am very close to walking. I know I keep saying that, but I keep getting closer and closer with each day. I can stand up quite awhile now. Alexander walked at 10.5 months. I don't want to be too far behind him because he will never let me live it down.
