ROCKSTARS/TOT’S LETTER OF THE WEEK
Okay, so I really need a new camera because I don’t like hubby’s big camera. =\
We did a review this week because there are a lot of verses to remember now, but she still remembers them all…except for the references.
It was Melody’s birthday on Wednesday, so we have been doing somethings to celebrate with her.
- Sunday – We had her birthday dinner with our families.
- Tuesday – We got Rigatoni’s pasta take out because it is one of her favorites (and a MOPS fundraiser that night).
- Wednesday – We went to the library for the Lunar New Year show – The Red Panda Acrobats. (see photos below) The guy found out it was Melody’s birthday and had us stay after the show to make a flower balloon for her, and Emily got a “kissing birds” balloon.
Not sure what we are doing today, but tomorrow we’re taking a trip up to Sacramento for our friends’ baby’s red egg and ginger party, so that will also be a treat for the girls. Sometime this month we will also be getting her library card (it was supposed to be the past Saturday, but that’s a long story), and we will be going to the Ice Creamery for our usual free birthday sundae for her (it’s a huge sundae, so that makes it a family affair. =p
Last week at storytime, all the kids sang Happy Birthday to Melody, and the library gave her 2 books.
We told everyone that there was no need for gifts for Melody’s birthday because we got a TON of stuff for Christmas that she hasn’t even really started playing with yet. She did get some stuff, and my MIL made some playdough for her. The girls have been playing with it every single day. Notice that they both take a different approach to playing with it. =p
Lacing Beads – I got this idea from Carisa at 1+1+1=1 when she had her little one use a stick because it was easier than the string. The girls’ wands were the only thing I could find, but it would probably work better with a skinnier stick.

A lot went on this week, and it feels like we took another semi-break from school again. Lots of learning happened though. We have been talking more about preschool options for Melody and have an appointment for a tour of one we like (which only has 3 spots open and people line up at 5:30am!) Another huge development over here is “potty training” for Emily. You can read more about that over on our family blog: Stories from Pottyville.
