The Saturday 7: September 17-24 (on Sunday. oops.)

So I really did start to write this post yesterday. Then life took over. Oh well. :)
  1. I now have a 16-month old. Crazy. This week I think she said her first non-mama/dada word. It was apple. It sounds a little like papa, or papal, or appa, but it's close enough. :)
  2. We had our first GEMS club meeting this week, and it was awesome!! We had 28 girls there, and I know of at least 5 more who had told me ahead of time that they weren't going to make it to the first one. We got them all registered, played some group games, did a skit, and had some praise & worship time. Should be a great year!
  3. Rocky's JV tennis team is having a winning season! He says they've won more matches this year than the last 3 years combined. ;-) Way to go honey!!
  4. I love fall. I think I said that last week. Oh well. :) I got pumpkins and decorative stuff at a farm stand today (Saturday). I'll be doing a post and showing pictures on my other blog soon...
  5. Abby and I went to our first storytime at the library on Thursday! It was soooo fun! Wednesdays are for 0-17 months, Thursdays are for 18-36 months, and Fridays are for 3-5 years. We were told we could go to the Thursday one even though Abby is just now 16 months. There were about 7 kids there, all around her age, so on the lower end of the age group. The teacher read a bunch of books, did some finger puppet plays, and even brought out one of those little parachutes that you toss balls and stuffed animals around on. Abby was so social and even danced to the music. :)
  6. She's not really interested in many of her toys anymore. She'll still push her car around (or ride it), and look through books and throw balls. But things like her blocks and farm animals and other things don't seem to interest her anymore. Sometimes I'm at a loss with how to play with her. :-/ I can only sing "Head shoulders knees and toes" so many times...
  7. Sweet corn season is just about done. That makes me sad. I've got 1/2 dozen ears in the fridge to use in the next few days, but that's probably the end of it. Mmmm it was good while it lasted... looking forward to next year already! ;-)
The Saturday 7: Post seven things that happened to you this week. Just a quick summary. Things you might not necessarily write a whole blog post about. Idea taken from Sadie's Lovin' Life with Lucy.

Carrie Lynn, for #6, a lot of parents will hide toys their kids have lost interest in for a few months, and then bring it back out a few months later and suddenly they're interested again. They keep only a few toys out at a time and rotate them. I think I read this in one of your parenting magazines when I was at your house... Anyway, it's an idea. Do you have any new toys or toys you had in her closet for a while? You could always pull those out as you put others away. Just a thought.
