Extra! Extra!

We got our new camera a couple of days ago. Here are a couple of shots: It has an in-camera red-eye eraser. (Your monitor isn't dirty. That's pureed peas on Matthew's face)
It has a kalidescope function. I don't really know the point of it, but I will play with it and get back to you.
Oh yeah. One more thing......
Emmett has had a major, major breakthrough. This week has seen a huge increase in his desire to try out new combinations of sounds and make words. One morning he handed me his favourite cereal bowl (blue) and said "bwoo" while signing "blue". Yesterday he asked for an apple and while signing said "abo".
Last night as I was saying goodbye to the kids and leaving them with their beloved respite worker Emmett ran up to me and pointed to himself and said "Emmeh". He kept repeating it while smiling and nodding his head.

"Emmeh"

Hooray for Emmett! I'm so happy for you guys.

I can't believe how grown up Mathew looks.

I think the "kaleidoscope charlotte" picture makes me think of how she is capable of doing all the things she normally does. She is really four little girls disguised as one! ;-)
