Once a Teacher, Always a Teacher

Rachel reading to Elijah.

She helps him touch the different textures.

She is teaching him sign language.

That means he's going to be a genius doesn't it?

Just look at those sweet baby hands.

I can't resist a thumb sucker.

  1. He is absolutely adorable and I'm sure he is brilliant. Let me know how the whole sign language thing works out. Does he seem to know any yet? Very cool. Are grandbabies the greatest?

  2. He actually looks very interested. Something about the book obviously captured his attention. So cute! He's getting cuter and cuter, the romper is so cute too.

  11. What a darling boy! Your daughter is beautiful too. And she'll be very glad she took the time with him, because it really will make him a genius! (When he's ready to learn to read, around 4, tell her "Sing, Spell, Read and Write" by Sue Dickson can't be beat!)

  13. Thanks for visiting my friend! To answer your question about the ocean cake, it is cake decorating GEL. It's in those little white tubes next to the bigger icing tubes of regular frosting.

  21. OH that VERY sweet baby! I love a thumbsucker too...but NOW am struggling with my 7 year old daughter at getting RID of the thumb! It was so much easier when I threw out her big brothers pacifier! What's a Momma to do????

  22. My sister and brother-in-law taughter their children sign language as babies. Just the basics; drink, wet, thirsty, hungry, hurt, happy, love. I was amazed the first time I realized what they had done. It was so much easier understanding what they wanted before they could talk.
    This babies eyes are amazing. He's such a cutie-pie.
