Somethings come easier...With Brianne and Bryce being so close in age - it's noticeable when things come naturally to Bryce - yet B might have to work at them. The simple task of flipping a light switch: Bryce's little fingers quickly mastered the lights on and off - but for Brianne - this is a task that requires more practice and concentration. I know there are bound to be so many of these times when things are natural/easy for Lil Brother - but B has to focus on them. But give the girl some help and practice things with her, have a little patience and persistence - and she'll master these things in her own time.
Snapping marker tops on and off was another one of these things - watching Bryce easily manipulate the tops on and off, but Brianne struggling and asking for help. But we kept working at it - and with practice - she's getting so much better at it! So proud of my little lady!
|Working on drawing lines and circles|
|She's working so hard to get the top back on!|
|This requires my serious face!|
|I did it! (and I'm beautiful!)|
It is so fun to watch Brianne and Bryce together. My heart melts when Bryce grabs Brianne by the hand and convinces her to come along with him.
|I brought Brianne to the table - is it breakfast time already?!?!|
Oompa is the most laid back pug - and Brianne loves to snuggle up with him.
|Hmmmm - not sure this is close enough...|
|Ahhhh - that's almost it....|
FUBBLES!I first saw these at Bryce's daycare - I couldn't comprehend how the kids were running around with bubbles.....don't they just spill it everywhere??!!! Not with Fubbles - it's like bubble magic in a fancy/clever container that is no-spill - ingenious!!!!! :) I highly recommend these for little kids - saves a lot of tears and lost bubble mix!
Sunday Morning Playdough Fun
Banana BoatsIt's so entertaining to see the kids learning new things and doing things their own way.
Bryce has a very unique banana eating technique. Don't try peeling the banana for him - he's got it all under control!
My Cheese is Broken!
Whoa - don't try to give this boy a cheese slice that is in pieces.....you will see some very serious tears....
|OMG - those tears kill me!!!!! Welcome to the Terrible Twos!|
|Whoa - all is right with the world....my cheese is together!|
DSPNT Swim Party!
I LOVE this event! It is so much fun to see the families and kids from the Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas having such a great time!!! I always feel a bit nostalgic since this was one of the first events that Brianne participated in. The first year that we went - Brianne was just a wee little gal, she was pre-heart surgery so she was lethargic and un-energetic.........(but still so very cute in her pink polka-dot swimsuit!).
Fast forward just three years....and WOW!!!!!!!!!
