Letter of the Week{s}: N

Due to numerous birthdays, not-so-fun sickness, news about our baby BOY and a nervous Mommy preparing to speak at Mom’s group at church, N week lasted a few weeks longer than expected! So, it looks like we’re going to have to double up to get though all of the letters before the baby gets here! :) But, without further adieu…

 9724039_6fc9497464 is for

nurse*nap*night*new*nickels
newspapers*
numbers*nuts

And, {hint, hint}…Quinn’s baby

brother’s name!!! Wanna guess!?!?

We started the week with a fun activity using a clothes pin bag. I found items from around the house that start with N and put them inside. Quinn pulled them out one at a time and told me what they were. He really enjoyed it…we’ll do it again with other letters, for sure! Valentine's Playgroup and more 004

We had a necklace, a nickel, a nose (from Mr. Potato Head), a number 9 from a puzzle, Noah and a nut! … Valentine's Playgroup and more 006

I got this little book for some fun coloring pages about people/stories in the Bible that start with each letter. 242146_1_ftc_dpWe spent some time reading stories about Noah and playing with his cute little ark. This lasted longer than I expected! :) …Valentine's Playgroup and more 009

Quinn did his fun art project and his little worksheet! He got a little color happy with the black! :) end of N 001 Quinn sorted noodles by color and helped me cook them! … Start of N, around the house and Ps. 118 009 Start of N, around the house and Ps. 118 011    And he, of course, had his “special lunch” full of N’s! He gets SO excited when he sees me working on the trays!!! He knows what’s coming…Valentine's Playgroup and more 011 My favorite part was the nest made out of granola…Valentine's Playgroup and more 012

Mammer also got Quinn these fun alphabet cards that go with his Frog Street Press songs. And, this week it was all about Nellie Nurse! The song was cute! FST414T We ended our N activities with a field trip to the grocery store to look for N words. (since the only places I could come up with were Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus….didn't think Quinn would find that very fun!!!) With a little guidance, he found some great N’s!!! Check out the pictures he took! …

And, since we couldn't resist, we came home with all of these things! But, the Nutter Butters and Nemo snacks helped us with our number game that we played!  end of N 002end of N 003It was a fun few weeks! (minus the fact that the most precious “n” word…nap…has been few and far between at our house!!!!…My little guy CAN NOT be dropping his nap already!!!!!) I look forward to the next one! I think we’re going to do “A!”

I am going to guess Nixon (which is one of our top two boys names), because great minds think alike. One thing I know for sure, is that it will be PERFECT just like sweet Quinn's name.
