Conversations with Eden

Eden does speech therapy at school two days a week.  She loves it and she loves her teacher.  And she's doing very well.  Yesterday she and I had the following conversation:

Eden: Mama, my speech teacher told me today that if I keep working hard I'll be done with all my sounds in two or three weeks.
Me:  Great!  Good for you!  What do you think about that?
Eden: Well, I'm a little sad.
Me: Did you tell your teacher that?
Eden: Yes
Me:  What did she say?
Eden: I don't remember exactly what she said, but I think what she meant was, sometimes you have to grow up.

So true.

Lost Teeth

Eden lost her first two teeth last week.  They had been loose a looong time, but she was not eager to pull on them too hard.  In fact, the two new teeth had already come up behind the little ones, so she had four teeth in the spot where there are only supposed to be two.  But, she finally gave the loosest one a little tug and out it came!  A couple of days later she did the same for the other one.  The picture is from when she lost the first one.  It's hard to see, but the gap is in the middle on the bottom.

Summer Miscellaneous

Summer is officially over.  So sad.  Going through pictures and videos, here are the miscellaneous stuff that never got posted.

Eden as Beavis (or was it Butthead?)

A wet but fun day at the zoo.

From the Past

The last video of Z reminded me of this one, which is always worth watching again!
