Pigtails, Questions and Prayers

Ella got her first set of pigtails today. Her Auntie decided she needed to try them. There were better pictures of her smiling, but you couldn't see the pigtails well enough. I guess every picture can't be of her smiling :)

I have a question......how have most of you learned signs to teach your kiddos??? I figured that it was about time I started to think about this and didn't know if there is some great video that you have all used or what. I would appreciate any input on this. Also...how do you post a video from One True Media onto your blog. I have the video all set up on the site but when I got to get the code and then copy and paste it on my page...it just shows up as the link, it doesn't show the actual video. Any hints on this???

Finally, tomorrow, Ella goes back to the oncologist for a follow up on her blood work. Please pray that her platelets are still in the normal range and that they don't see any blasts (bad cells) in her blood!!!

The first picture I've seen of a non-smiling Ella...but still ADORABLE!!!

I use the Baby Signing Times videos. I'm not very good at teaching Lily though...shame on me!

I will definitely keep Ella in my prayers!!!

Awww...those pigtails are adorable!!

I *just* started THIS week showing Benjamin a Baby Signing Times DVD. I have been so lazy with signing and I really need to get my lazy butt in gear. I have all four of the DVDs but I am sticking the first one for awhile since it has most of the basics on it. I already have the songs stuck in my head...ARGG!!! LOL
Anyway, what I've done is about once or twice a day, I've put his exersaucer in front of the TV and turned on the DVD. He pays pretty good attention, and it allows me to spend some time with Andrew. Or doing dishes. Or checking blogs. LOL

Let us know about the oncologist appt. We will be praying!!

Praying that all the blood work is great. There are these videos called signing time. They are made just for kids. I know there huge in Utah but I think the lady that made them lives here. Google signing time, and I'll see if I can find out how to get them.

Ruby loves Baby Signing Time! It's wonderful - we've all learned a lot from the DVDs. They're pricey, but worth it.

Ella's hair is adorable!

I love the pigtails! I was always so excited when my girls had enough hair to do that!
Good luck at the oncologist. We are praying for very good counts!

Kristen's mom said...

The piggies are darling. We have blood work on Wednesday. Praying that is good news for the both of us.

Tracey said...

She is absolutely beautiful!!! Love the pigtails!

Kim said...

Let me try this again. Thought I posted but I'm not seeing it.

We do sign with Mattie. Signing Time is great! I think we are learning more from the video since Mattie doesn't care for tv. She doesn't sign back but responds to our signs. She loves when we sign "good girl".

Praying that all went well at the doctors.

Love the piggy tails!!
