Proud Mommy & some updates

Very long post...So get your oxygen tank ready..

I am just so proud *big grin*. My son Connor never ceases to amaze us. When he turned 2, his grandma (my MIL) gave him one of those $5 magnetized writing board for his 2nd birthday, couple of weeks later he started writing ABC's and the numbers 1-10 on it. I thought it seemed pretty normal, until I noticed that even my nephew who was past 3 can't even write yet. While we were in the Philippines for our vacation, Connor started saying all the colors in the rainbow, simply from identifying them out of fruit loops. LOL. I was so impressed! And then we got home and a couple weeks later he started to count and write from 1-20. He also learned a few sign languages like please, thank you, help, sleep, eat, drink, mommy, daddy, hat, baby, shoes (he thought me how to sign shoes LOL), socks, potty and a couple others. Anyways, he used that board, and for being $5 it broke after a while, he got a new one and the other day he did this...

Big tada!!! How awesome, he wrote his own name! and then he would run his index finger over and pretend (?) to read and said "Coyer" (with silent 'r' hehe) he can't pronounce his name very well yet. Okay, he kept missing an 'O' but still, he's only 2 years and 6 months. Not bad!!! Maybe in a couple of months, he will start reading to me LOL and do a better job at reading than his mom! LOLOL. Just so proud I am!!! =^0^=

Now onto stitchy updates...

I owed a close friend in college a stitched piece, she asked me a long time ago when she moved to New Zealand to make her a pooh cross stitch, now that had been like 2 years ago, I'm so bad, that she stopped talking to me LOL. Recently, i talked to her again, and i told her that I have been trying to find a pooh design for her (I wanted to stitch one where I don't have to spend my whole life stitching it LOL). I went to my stash and i remembered I had 2 booklets one was of pooh baby designs and then this other one that I picked up from a yard sale. I decided to rechart that and I ended up with what is now a wedding announcement for my dear friend (who got upset LOL). The fabric was a RAK from my friend Ericille, it was a one of a kind lavender fields from stab & stash. Thanks Ericille.

I also have a picture update of OUAT, can you see how i modified her again to suit my taste? Now, what the hell is this? (encircled in red) I know it's part of her dress but i think it makes it look so busy on the right side, with her wings and all...I can't help but think...tentacles!!! So i continued her arms, and hair and will be eliminating that part of her dress because i don't see why it should be there. There will prolly be a change or two coming soon, her necklace just looks wrong to me, an inverted cross??? I'll have to fix that one as well...creeping me out!!! LOL
Here is not much of an update piccy:
Whew! That was a long one, literally took me a long time to write, so sorry for the novel, but I haven't updated in a while and had so much to blah about. hehehe. I hope you are still breathing!!! j/k!

Thanks for coming down and visiting. Hope you have a nice day!

Yes, Connor is really in advance. He will never have problem to learn at school (like Emma) but he may be bored at school (something you will have to check ;) )

Nice Pooh design ! YOu are right to change a pattern if you don't like a part !

Doris said...

I can't figure out what that thing is hanging off of her dress on OUAT, if you ever figure it out let us know.

Connor sounds like a bright young boy ;)

Connor is doing wonderfully, that's knowing a lot for his age. Your Pooh piece looks adorable, and your WIP is looking so pretty too. Your changes are looking great. Loved your earlier entry on the keys and doggy door too. Amazing what we can do with the right motivation. :)

Connor is so adorable. He is such a fast learner :D

Connor is doing very well. It will definitely help him when he does start school!

The piece on the dress is like a scarf. I think if I could voice it, rather than write it, I could explain it.

I love what you did with the Pooh design! I think it is perfect!

Andie said...

Wow! Connor is SO clever!!! Just wait he will be telling his mummy and daddy how to do things soon :) (Wade does to me lol) Your stitching is beautiful as always, love the fabric the pooh designs is on and OUAT is beautiful!!

Joei said...

Congrats on your Pooh HD.

Lovely stitching sis!

Mel said...

WOW, that is pretty advanced for 2. You could have a genius on your hands there.
You pooh stitching looks wonderful. can I ask, what are the clips on your stitching for? Just wondering what you use them for, your progress looks great BTW

Yuko said...

Oh wow wow!!!
Connor is absolutely smart boy!
I can't believe he wrote his name on the board!! Great, well done, clever, Connor!!!
My boy can't pronounce his name properly either!
He can't even draw some thing yet, though!
Very in advance!!
I'm so surprised, Noreen!
