Friday Focus: Roo

These days Roo is a pirate. All pirate, all day long. She goes around yelling "AARRRRR" at everyone and I've downloaded quite a few kid pirate songs. Seems like every cartoon has done at least one episode. Lazy Town, Dora, the Backyardigans... I'm glad there's lots of choices. And Island Explorer summer makes her very happy. She has trouble keeping the eyepatch in place, but she sure does love it!

I think I'm going to make a treasure chest cake when her birthday rolls around. I can't believe my Pink Ladies are going to be three so soon. The birthdays start in two weeks and then it's one after the other. We'll be eating a lot of yummy cake around here for awhile! :)

Seems like overnight her hair has grown by leaps and bounds. It took forever for it to get long enough for pigtails, but now it is!! I so love her hair like this. For the most part she keeps them in too, which is nice. We've come a long way from this:


That picture was April of last year, so she was just past eighteen months. And yeah, that was half her life ago, but still. So much development in the past year. She was still stationary enough to be in the bumbo on the table! And now she's got a sporty new wheelchair on order. They brought a few over during therapy awhile back for her to test out. It was so COOL to watch her motor around!!

In September she'll graduate ECI and go off to morning preschool through the school district. It's going to be weird to only have her here in the afternoons, but I am so looking forward to hearing about her days at big girl school. Academically she's totally ready. She knows her colors, counting, numerals, letters, shapes... smart girl!

And yes, Aurora was hungry. Oh well. The sound on these videos is always ridiculous because there's so much going on around here!
