Deeder’s Music Band

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Deeder picked out a recorder at Target for himself and a little purse for Carly after our trip this morning to the doctor.
Carly isn’t very impressed with the handbag (she no doubt would have prefered to receive a tool box) but Deeder is head over heels for his new, “music band.”
Carly threw the bag to the floor a few times then discovered that it has batteries and can play music, at this point she set in to trying to figure out how to dissect the thing.

Little Sissy isn’t much of a girlie-girl yet, maybe she never really will be.

There’s so much to think about as a preschooler. For this kid, it’s just a thrill to be talking, that’s how I feel anyway…I can *finally* hear cohesive phrases coming from him. I guess for Deeder it’s the opposite–Mommy is finally understanding, to him I imagine his attempts at communication have always made sense, it’s me who has been the slow learner!

And I seriously think Deeder’s future occupation will be something that involves him being in front of a camera. He asks on a regular basis to be, “videoed” first thing when he wakes up. Then, as you can see, he is in a big hurry to see how the clip turned out.

As Diederick’s getting older (and talking more) he’s expressing quite the intuitive thoughts on life. A recent favorite of mine is how he is positive that my belly button is, “Baby Koen’s nose”

No, I’m not going to post a picture of my belly button, but I will assure you that it now shamelessly shows itself through even the thickest material available in summer maternity wear.

I’ve written a little more on Koen’s blog, so drop by over there too. :)

We missed you!

My mom and dad are back from their vacation in California. I’m nearly embarrassed by how much we missed them! :P
