Easter and little bit of what has been going on

Sorry it has been so long. I just have not made time to update the blog. We had a great Easter at Meemaw & Pawpaw's house. We hunted eggs, played cards, and enjoyed each others' company. Clara is starting to recognize faces she sees often and those that she does not. The other day I almost felt she understood the sign for milk and calmed down crying when I made the sign. It was strange. The boys are really catching on quickly to signing. We have a Baby Einstein video from Netflix right now and started it today. Clara watches in spurts but the boys soaked it up like a sponge. It is a fun challenge for us to communicate in sign language.

I am still looking into a tutor for us (the boys) to learn Spanish also. I have tapes to start Clara on when she is 1. It is Muzzy. They are cartoons entirely in Spanish. We have been using Rosetta Stone (I have been) that is free online through our library. I would love for us all to be fluent in Spanish as it is great for the brain to learn other languages and now days it is almost a necessity. After that who knows, French for future Haitian mission trips.....The possibilities are endless. =D More later, when I am not falling asleep and babbling. By the way, Clara is sleeping through the night!! WOO HOO!! She goes to sleep around 9 and wakes between 5:30 and 7. She then has a bottle and off to sleep she goes with mommy until about 9:30 or so. GREAT stuff!!! If bedtime continues to go this smoothly Clara will be moving into her room pretty soon. Here is a clip of Easter I made. I need to start taking more pics of the other family members too...Clay, I, mom, dad, etc. The kids make center stage always!! They might wonder where we were when they start looking at pictures when they are adults.....=D

I think it's so great that your whole family is learning Spanish. Sophia's daycare just started weekly Spanish lessons...she slept through her first one, though! I'm thrilled she'll be exposed from such an early age to another language. I'm also going to work on the baby signs...have you found any good resources? I'd love to hear about them if so!
