I've heard lots about Blogging Through The Alphabet from Marcy @ BenandMe.com and others who have joined in the past. It sounded like a lot of fun and since I am often struggling to come up with my own ideas for blogging weekly, it sounded exactly like something I need to join in with. Win, win, win! So here goes...
A is for Apples
Apples are pretty important in our house. They are one of Laycie's absolute favorite things. She loves to eat them but even more, she loves to collect different collectible apples.
We have glass apples, apple signs, apple drawings and more. At one point the kitchen curtains were even red to match her beautiful apples which I have managed to contain mostly in our kitchen. She sure loves those apples!
When Laycie was first learning to talk, she struggled with saying the word "apple". She would say "Bapple" instead. Completely adorable! I found it so adorable that I actually called my first iPhone Bapple for my Laycie-Lou. She loved that!
Sadly, I admit that her love of Apples has also encouraged me to buy iPhones and iPads, silly as that is. I love to see the smile on her face from each apple she finds, even the little silver one on the back of my phone. I'd do anything to see her precious smile.
Are their things in your home that you find yourself collecting because of your children? Do your rooms reflect their loves as well as their own? Share with me if you wish.
