Depression cooking

I won't be using hot dogs any time soon for this but I loved this lady's stories.

my friends are in a video for the church

I just thought I'd post this here. My friends were in a video and I think it's pretty cool.

Someone posted this on my homeschool group. I liked the videos section.

A nice lady at church fed Ana a cookie, Ahhh

We were sitting at stake conference and there was a nice couple next to us playing with Ana. I turned away for just a second and when I looked back Ana was eating something. I pulled it out of her mouth and it was a piece of cookie crisp cereal.
ARGH! The lady looked so shocked that I was trying to get it out of her mouth so I told her I'm sorry, she's allergic to wheat. She felt so bad. Then I felt sorry for her.
I'm frustrated though because there are so many places that she gets wheat. People don't think before they feed a kid. I need to create an outfit that says, "do not feed me!" to wear when we go anywhere.
Yeah, that would blend in well wouldn't it?
Now we get to look forward to the crying, cramping, and bloody poop. Gotta loce Celiac's disease.

Potatoes in a pot

Wow, what a fun homeschool project. No excuse for no garden space anymore.

The clip is a little cheesy at the beginning but has great information later on as she learns.

Opera, Liberty Academy

This is for my Liberty Academy pals...I'm posting the links to the opera here for practice so they'll be available. If you lose the link just come to my blog and search (in the top left corner) opera and you'll find the post.

The video is the dwarve's song. Please have them practice it. The link is to the complete opera minus the dwarves song. The more they can listen and sing along, the better this will be.

All about Ana

I thought I haven't written down what Ana has been doing so I'll do that now...

She signs very well, and knows most words that goes with her signs now. I don't know if everyone would know what she's saying but we can tell the difference.

When she wants anything she says please please please please please

She's walking although wobbly and she falls down a lot. She does have crossed toes and that may have to do with her balance issues.

She wants to eat everything we're eating which is one reason we're trying to transition to gluten free so I can fix one meal that we can all eat. She loves bananas if they're very ripe. She's learned when she says cracker that it either means the yummy animal crackers or the yucky gluten free crackers we got at first. She won't eat the first ones now and I don't blame her.

We're stressing about nursery cause there's always food on the floor. I don't know what we'll do unless I go in first and vacuum and then take her out before they feed snacks.

Ana loves babies and tries to poke their eyes out lovingly while she says "eyes". She practices at home with her plastic babies. She also likes to feed them and give them blankies (i.e. smother them)

She loves balls and balloons of all sorts. Andy even has a big exercise ball that she pushes around the floor.

She loves shoes and socks and tries to sing the sock song from signing time while putting them on her feet "sock sock sock sock sock sock."
