I'm Malorie. I'm happily married and have a beautiful 19 month old daughter named Brenda. I hope this blog will be a place I can write down what fun things we do.
The big thing in our house this week is the letter A. Brenda and I are learning all about the letter A, the color red, the number 1, and circles. I found an online curriculum that I have been trying out along with tweaking it some for our interests. Brenda is also learning her first memory verse this week. She doesn't speak much yet, but she is eating up signing. I think she knows more than I do. To learn her memory verse, we are signing it together. The verse is "In the beginning, God created the heaven and earth. Genesis 1:1" We sign beginning, create, heaven "sky", earth and 1. When she gets it really good, I'll have to video tape it. I'm so proud of her.
Signing is huge in our house right now. I have been trying to sign with Brenda since before she was one, but she didn't pick any signs up until the beginning of December. "More" was her first sign. That's when I discovered my new love SIGNING TIME! I love everything about this program. We bought the first volume for Brenda for Christmas. Within a week, she knew half the signs in the video. It's amazing. She also has been much more attentive when I try teaching her a new sign. We both learned "Please" yesterday. We are also very excited to get the next video in the series next week! I recommend signing time for anyone with young kids. With that said, I also recommend everyone to go to www.signingtime.com or www.youtube.com and search for signing time foundations trip to Ghana. They are going to Ghana this month and are trying to raise money to pay for 9 death children to go to school. This is a great cause that we are donating to.
I think that is enough rambling for now.
Til next time,
