Stay at home mom

Parker is going to Pre-K three days a week and doing what he calls "Pre-K at home" two days a week while I am on maternity leave. We work on the letter of the week, bake together or do a craft project, play on Starfall (a great learning website for kindergardeners and first graders that my mom shared with us - thanks Mom!), and work on other kindergarden skills. We are having so much fun! As a teacher, I love how enthusiastic Parker is and how curious he is about everything. By third grade, I don't see as much curiousity or enthusiasm. Where does it go?
Every day, I can't get over how beautiful she is (I'm not biased or anything!)! She is just the opposite of Parker when he was a baby. He would sleep for 20 minutes out of a three hour period where Macy is awake for 20 minutes instead. She loves to cuddle. Our nights have been fun too - Macy has a hard time understanding that she doesn't have to be held 24 hours a day. Even if we are sleep deprived, I wouldn't trade this for anything. It is so nice to be home with both my babies and not have to stay up late grading papers or dealing with a school to do list. I am having a blast!!!

Macy is beautiful. We are so thankful to see that everything went well. Big brother Parker looks like a pro already.
Love, Chris, Martha, & Nora
