February Times


This week I have my student Daniel over a few times to work on a painting to enter in the Annual SPA Visual Art contest that he won last year. He is an amazingly gifted child and I feel so privileged to be a part in nurturing his talent. He drew this entirely free hand and spent countless hours painting. The theme of the contest was “Illuminate your Dreams; Beyond Your Own Cityscape” Shelby was watching in this pic. June really liked flirting with Danny who she calls “Deedee”

June has been a busy girl! We got her a training potty and this is how I found it one morning. June ripped up the cushioned seat, stuffed a piece in her baby’s mouth, and stuffed the baby in the hole. Maybe she wanted me to think the baby doll ruined the seat.

Yesterday I found her in the kitchen, eating out of the trash can.


Then she took three spoons out of the dishwasher, lined them up in her baby buggie and pushed them around saying “two tee” which means one-two-three. I couldn’t be mad at her after I heard her counting! Thanks Sesame Street! She even said “tee poon” which translates from Juney vernacular to english: “three spoons”


Shelby Grace is a happy little 6weeker. She has started to smile at you and coo. She gets a little fussy in the evenings, but the doctor said it was reflux and gave us some medicine. She is up to 10 1/2 lb now

She is very strong and can easily hold her head up. She likes to be a part of the action, and her little eyes follow June around wherever she goes!

At night she will quickly go from cute happy little Shel-fish….to…..


Cry baby mad screamy girl in seconds. She constantly wants mommy to hold her and is perfectly happy in my arms till the moment I put her down, and the screaming starts again. I think she’s gonna be a mama’s girl for sure!

Her little mad face sniffy cry is actually really cute, though. I have to laugh sometimes at the funny little expressions ths girl has!

I am really feeling sad that I am going to have to leave the girls soon, but at the same time it is a blassing that my mom is going to take care of the girls till summer and the fact that I really love my job, I am very blessed!!!
