Cribs, Fashion and the Teacher's Pet (an eclectic blog mix)

Yesterday I heard Indi crying and figured she was up from her nap.   I went to get her and found she had fallen back asleep on top of her Elmo doll with her legs sticking out between the crib rails by about 3 inches!

I've mentioned Indi's Clyndi Lauper style.  Here's an example.  I dressed her in the dress.  She added the pants, jacket, and shoes. She was also wearing my turquoise necklace for awhile.  If the girl wants her look to be "funky" I think she's got it down pat!

I picked Jude up from school a little early and was watching him play happily on the playground.  He was so content that even though he saw me, he had no inclination to come over to me (sniff, sniff!). Actually I am glad he loves school so much.  

I started chatting with his head teacher.  She told me that she is so thankful to have him in her class and that he's a "delightful boy".  She said he is polite to both teachers and students, always says please and thank you, is inquisitive, and engages well with all the other children.  She added that he's a natural leader and is a role model for the other students in the class.  WOW!  Dan questioned, "Did you ask how we can get him to act like that at home?!"  I said, "I did!"  At home he definitely likes to test the boundaries.  But all in all, he's a sweet boy!  So, that's my brag on my boy! Here are some photos of Jude today:
