Coming Back!

First of all, my apologies!  I know I haven't been doing much on here in a while.  I started a new job with longer hours and Xander and I needed some time to adjust our schedule a bit.  I know we still have some adjustments to make, plus we are moving in less than 5 weeks, so I still probably won't be updating as much as I would like, but please bear with me.  Eventually we will be settled!

Anyway, now that we are in our new routine, we have started slowly doing lessons again.  I am still rotating Xander's Baby Trays and he spends a lot of time with the more educational toys that I put on them.  Since we don't get home until about 3:30 and Xander is currently refusing his afternoon nap, we have some VERY cranky evenings.  Because of this, we are really only doing one set of word flash cards a day.  I am hoping that if we can adjust his nap at day care a bit, we can go back to more flash cards a day again.  We are also only doing LR and LM once a day right now.  Once again, I would like to get back up to two, if he can get over the crabbiness in the evenings.  Because we are doing so few flash cards, I have been trying to make sure we are reading extra books that have big fonts.  With a little boy who LOVES his books, and will often get you to reread the same one multiple times (even without words he can be incredibly clear in communicating what he wants), reading more books isn't too hard.

We also still watch one of his movies every day.  The newest addition to our collection is the second Baby Signing Time, which he really likes.  Now that he is getting closer to being able to gesture, I need to do better about reinforcing his signs!
