We're Done!!! (for now)

Today Karl turned in the last of his school work for this quarter. It's like one huge breath of fresh air for all of us. Tonight Karl came home from work, cleaned up the kitchen, made Soren one great dinner, put him to bed and helped me make lasagna. After we eat dinner, we're going to decorate our Christmas tree while listening to Christmas music and drinking some hot apple cider. I'm in heaven...

No that's not a song, it's a tasty ice cream novelty and it fits the subject matter of this long-overdue post.

Just days after I posted about Soren's vocab, he had a language explosion and it hasn't stopped since. Every day he wakes up and has about 5+ new words he can say. It's wild...and I love hearing his sweet little voice so much as he's experimenting. I can't even attempt a list now, there's far too many to count.

As I mentioned in that same post, he pronounces applesauce as "apposit." He does this with some of his new words and we haven't been able to find a rhyme or reason to it. Some words are normal some words are "it" words. Here they are:

almonds = almondsit
medicine = medicit
paci = pacit

I have never heard of a child doing this to some words, but I'm going to hold off on calling in the speech therapist quite yet because I'm sure this is considered normal. Now if he's doing it at age 6...then we'll see.


As for the rest of our lives, that's going to take waaaaaaay more time to write down than I have. So we'll save it for another time. We're so close to being done with this quarter which we're all very ready for. Stay tuned for more updates, but be patient - I'm one wiped out mama.
