Words: 22 - dada, mama, woof, yes, dis (this), kack (quack), hi, thank you, uh oh, bye, wa (water), buh (book), pees (please), goat, puppy, ah duh (all done), no, shoe, socks, bawll (ball, but sounds like a southern belle when she says it!), Poppy, BeeBee

Signs: 12 (more, all done, dog, please, berry, cheese, grape, water, milk, help, thank you, cat)

How Mom's Feeling: Pooped. Nothing to do with Lorelei, so much, as how things are going at work. I got a promotion (yay!) and a pay increase (double yay!), but I've also got an extremely young and very challenging group of kids to work with. Each day I feel like I come home completely drained.

On the plus side this month, I had a lot of days off for various Jewish holidays. It's kind of a nice way to ease into the school year. Lorelei got to spend a lot of time with me running errands and going to fun places. Of course, that makes it harder when I have to go back to work on a regular schedule!

Another positive addition this month is that we found an interesting new church to go to. We've been hunting for a good one since before I was pregnant. We want one with a relatively young demographic, young families, with a perspective that doesn't just accept what the bible says, but also questions it. I feel that this church meets most of these goals. They also meet on Sunday evenings and serves dinner after. This is so much easier for us! It means we can go down to Gilroy for the weekend, and still come back without missing church (and I don't have to worry about cooking dinner one night a week). Time will tell, but I'm hoping this will be a good fit for us.

Pics of our Week

We're getting to that time of year again, my very favorite time of year...Indian Summer! While June, July and August are summer for most, it was generally foggy and cool here. But this weekend, the forecast is for 80's in Daly City (what what?)! The other reason this is my favorite time of year: The Jewish High Holy Days--which means I get a lot of days off!

Some pictures from the last few weeks:

Bath time!

Proud to master the stairs!
And the slide!
Happy morning baby!

Cuddling with Tiger

Pizza is so delicious!

Reading to the dogs!
