Mercy is learning copious amounts of information as the days progress and she will happily inform you how she is related to certain family members (Nana is Daddy's mom, MeMe is Mommy's mom etc...). She is also found of learning people's whole names. If you were to ask her what her name is, she will most certainly give you her first middle and last. The most adorable thing is though, if you ask her what her sister's name is she will say, "Annabelle MoreGraceHouse"
Yes Lord, let this be a house full of grace.

I know what this looks like and I can assure you that I have not turned M into my little Cinderella slave girl (just ignore me typing in the background).
As I've been perusing the internet for preschool skills and activities I've been shying away from the letters/numbers/cutsie-wootsie stuff (that's right, I said cutsie wootsie) and leaning more towards the Montessori style of preschool activities. Mercy already knows her letters and letter sounds thanks to Leap Frog Letter Factory (you didn't hear that Dr. Montessori, I don't intend for my child's entire education to be via cartoons) but there are many skills and activities I would like M to master.
Montessori puts an emphasis on practical life skills and keeping one's environment. We found this vacuum at Wal-Mart for $15 and it has been proven as a perfect tool for Mercy to pitch in with! True Montessori uses a carpet sweeper, but Dr. Montessori left this earth before the invention of vacuums s I think this will pass!

Putting this out there for some accountability. I recently weighed myself and the number was very similar to the number I was at when I delivered Mercy (read: 9 months pregnant). So, I'm doing something about it. Making some healthier choices and doing the wii fit every day. Kevin's doing the wii fit with me. I'll check in on occasion to tell you what's going on. Wish me luck!
