74 months of Yaya!

* Mouse over the pictures for captions
September had its quiet and un-quiet moments. Vin had to go away for a few days to attend a funeral, leaving me and the kids home alone for the first time. Then we had to go to Tampa, Florida for the new project. All in all, it was a good month, albeit exhausting at the end of the month.
In the food status section, Yaya ate a couple of new things:
* lime-ade popsicle
* sno-cone (blue) at the circus
Oh yeah, we took the kids to the circus! It was fun. More on that later.
Reading status: still the same. The switch has yet to turn on completely so we just have to keep on keeping on. Yaya still is very into doing artwork and enjoying art in all different media. She still enjoys being read to (we are still reading Enid Blyton books) and I feel that she is improving every day. I feel like it’s a waiting game almost, like it was when she did not start talking even though she understood everything we said at 27 months old. So let’s hope one day (soon) she feels confident enough to try reading for real as she loves stories and the wonderful world of fiction awaits her!
And now to the photos, beginning with some fun ones of Yaya and Adik together:
