The Adventure Begins: Jeremiah and Sierra, Fall 2009!

While my good friend Karen student teaches this Fall, I have the great honor of taking care of her daughter, Sierra, who just happens to be one month older than Jeremiah. They always have so much fun together!!! Today was the first day that I babysat for Sierra. Sierra and Jeremiah have had quite a good day so far, and are napping at the moment. I decided to take this "down time" to post some pics/details on our blog. So far today, the two cuties have enjoyed a walk in the double stroller, racing cars down the hallway, dancing to music, practicing animal sounds with Baby Einstein, coloring pictures, and making music (out of keyboard/drum/guitar toys). Sadly, our morning walk was cut short, when it started to sprinkle just a bit. :( I just have to add: I recently bought the double stroller from a posting I found on Craigslist for $12!!! What a deal!

This is what we have planned for the rest of the week:
*Tuesday: mall walk/lunch date scheduled with some of my friends
*Wednesday: "splish splash" play date with our M4C play group
*Thursday: still "undecided" (possibly swimming with my friend Emily)
*Friday: play date at our friend, Allison's house (five babies all together!!)

What a fun, busy week! No matter what, I praise God for this precious time I have with Jeremiah and Sierra. What a blessing to be able to watch them grow and learn....together!

I am so glad that Karen has found someone as great as you to watch Sierra. I know it breaks her heart to leave her. She is wonderful hands I am happy that you were able to seize this opportunity.
