Well, it sure has been awhile! So much for keeping other updates instead of Talisa’s monthly updates! I have a few posts to share, but I want to do them in order. So today here a few photos showing some of the things we do around the house together 🙂
Three months ago Svara turned 7. I still can’t believe it! For her birthday we were happy to be able to get her one of the things she wanted more than anything – the large Lego Friends house. The year before she had gotten a couple of the smaller sets for her birthday. She really enjoyed them, but needed a lot of guidance to put them together. This year she put together the whole thing almost all by herself.
Both of the girls have been helping me out with cooking as well. Talisa loves stirring oats or flour while Svara and I are busy. As you can imagine, this can get quite messy!
Svara, on the other hand, is now able to read parts of recipes and help out with measuring as well. Our kitchen can be quite warm as there is no fan, so when she helps cook I usually take all the ingredients to the dining table so it’s cooler. Here she was mixing together some granola, yum!
Sometimes when I am working in the kitchen I really need to find something to keep Talisa busy. She has kind of gotten bored with digging around in the cupboards, so I have to be more imaginative.
On this day I took out the playdough and utensil drawer and she went to town. After awhile she was ready for something new and she asked for some oats. She likes to stir them and eat them!
I’ll leave today with a few photos of Talisa doing what she does best – being silly! And eating her still favorite snack – frozen blueberries! I’ll be back soon with a few more posts of the fun stuff we’ve been up to!
