A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Sippy Obsession and Self Affirmation

To the untrained eye- one may think such a pose is a contemplative one.

But is actually Sam's version of the sign "drink" (a little easier to see the adaptation than Lucy's version of giving herself a wet-willie)

This is her favorite sign. And really her only. I think she goes through 16 oz of water a day.

Which results in 5-7 diapers a day.

We do cloth, remember?

Anyway, this pretty much sums up my days:

Request for a drink

Self affirmation



Repeat 'til sippy is empty

Drop sippy and make loud noise at mom who is no longer paying attention

More self affirmation

So adorable!!! We used signing with our first but not much with our 2nd. I really want to do it this time around because it's SO awesome to know what they want! Truly amazing!

Apparently Miss Samantha has a head of hair now-the 4th pic shows it off quite nicely! Beautiful!

What a cute sequence of pictures. I wish my little one would catch on to sign; I'm getting tired of the grunting and screaming. LOL

Her Uncle, Andrew, often would drink a cup of liquid and "export" what seemed like two cups....never did figure that out... ;-)
