I think it’s been a while since I posted some pictures of every day life in the Ford household. So here are some for you to enjoy.
Isn’t this one handsome young fellow? I love his really big “Cheese” face that he does at picture time.
Recipe for homemade fun: (see picture above)
1 step stool
* (at least) 1 parent
a kid or 2 … or 3
an old cloth diaper
lots of giggles and smiles
camera for taking pictures
Directions: Turn the step stool upside down. If you don’t want to scratch your nice rosewood floors, put the cloth diaper underneath the stool. Place one child in the “car”. Push the car as fast as the child wants to go. Take turns, and don’t forget to snap a few pictures while you’re at it.
*Teach older children to push younger children so parents don’t have to break their backs playing the game over and over and over …
There’s always lots of reading going on in our house. I think it’s contagious. (There are also lots of book-picking-up-parties.)
We tried some shoes on Elizabeth for the first time last week. She loved them! Once she got used to how heavy they were, she stopped walking around like a chicken. Isn’t our newest walker so cute?
Here are Elizabeth and Hannah building a tall tower of blocks together.
I’m getting a hug from Caleb here. (picture compliments of Hannah Ford Photography) Caleb keeps us hopping with his energy. He loves helping me make pancakes and always asks what’s for dinner. He makes Elizabeth laugh a lot. Caleb also loves doing science experiments during school with us.
Cuddling with Hannah here. (picture compliments of Caleb Ford Photography. At least most of my head is in this one!) Hannah is doing a great job in kindergarten. She loves to write stories and especially likes reading the Bible stories we have in our curriculum. Science experiments are at the top of her list of favorites, too.
Hard to believe Elizabeth is 15 1/2 months old already. She’s saying a bunch of words, walking all around the place, and playing with her big bro and sis. She carries a little soft duckie blanket around with her everywhere. I never thought I would have a kid who has a security blanket! No pacifier – just a blanket, thank you very much.
So, there you have it. Life in the Ford household.
