So...I have two sweet children napping, which is very, very rare these days, so thought I'd jump on the chance to actually blog!
It has been a pretty good month! Here are some pics for ya! And...sorry that they are not the best quality...I take them on a whim with my IPhone...I know, I know...sorry!!!
|Her favorite place is...guess where...the "outside," and she loves to say it!|
|"Look ma, no hands!" She loves to be funny!|
|"Peek-a-boo, I see you!"|
|Lol! Justin put her in her blanket and set her down one day here, and I think she thought she was in trouble, because she stayed there with this look on her face until I picked her up!|
|We love drums!|
|He loves to sit in the bowl and watch t.v.!! Silly boy!|
|One night while Justin was working, Kaleb came up to me and told me that Asparagus (from Veggie Tales) needed a helmet to go on his motorcycle! So we made one.|
|Being silly again!And yes, she has a cars bib on! This momma needed to do laundry!|
|Girly loves books...!|
|Yummy mashed potatoes!!!|
|Momma's view...in the morning!|
|They start lots of bathroom projects, and they don't finish them! Imagine that.|
|Mommy, mommy, I am a big girl in my big girl shoes!! I was so excited because I finally got some shoes on this girl! She always, always takes them off!!|
|Yes, we are into eating rocks. Not literally, but most definitely tasting them to see if they are good. I think she thinks they are because she keeps tasting them!|
I am going to try and do this as a faster post....but here are some Kalebisms and Brookeisms that I am writing down so we have record! :) (And just to enjoy...)
Brookelynn...these days, you...
*still love to dance. You dance mostly in your seat while eating! Momma has a hard time feeding (and getting the food INTO your mouth!) sometimes, because you love to rock back and forth!
*love to pat us while we rock you to sleep.
*love to cuddle still
*talk while your paci is in your mouth!
*"outside" is your favorite word!
*say "thank you," when we feed you
*get a hold of a Kleenex, and and copy us like you are blowing your nose!
*"blow" on your food like when mommy does it
*like to have your stuffed monkey so you can play with it's tail to go to sleep
*like to take my finger and point to all the pictures in the book for me to tell you what they all are
*This is so funny, but you love to say, "Dobby, dobby, dobby," over and over again! Not sure where that came from or why, but it's really cute! Daddy got a video of it the other day and we should try and post it on here!
*love to blow kisses, mostly while in your chair
*still eat pretty well, although you're starting to throw down your carrots and peas! NO......! :)
*are already throwing tantrums!!! You have begun to kick and scream when you don't get your way...Uh oh...:)
*are starting to cruise a lot! The couch, the chairs, etc! And with this, is the discovery of all the no nos, such as the knobs on the couches to recline, etc...:)
*have started to alternate between one and two naps a day, based on our schedule
*love soft things!
*Your routine at night includes a bath almost every other night (rotating with brother), brushing your eight teeth (yes, eight!!) reading a book or two (in which you insist on turning the pages), followed by rocking and holding your monkey or blanket.
*Bedtime is now 7:30 or eight.
*You do the same kind of fast little laugh your cousin Luke does when he is excited, which is funny because you are almost the same age!
*Your crawl is also identical to his, with one leg tucked under. We think it's because you are having to learn to crawl on hardwood floors.
*You love art! Anytime there is a chance, you love playing with a crayon and paper!
Kaleb, these days, you...
*always love to play "Wozy," which translates to "Ring around the Rosy". :)
*you like to use your napkin to cover your mouth when you cough!
*ask for something by putting what you want first in the sentence, then directly followed by "Yes?"
For instance, "Cookie, yes?"
*"ice crean," means "ice cream"
*have named your favorite truck "Mac," after "Mac" on the movie, "Cars"
*know most of your colors, numbers 1-10 and basic shapes
*"Uh oh, paggettios"
*love to fix anything that is broken, or not broken, for that matter!
*"Oh no, broken tire!"...Not sure how many times a day I hear this! Lol. You have a car with a broken tire.
*love a show called, "Police Patrol," that we think may be French...lol. It's on Netflix but after one time of watching it you were hooked and it's annoying but I let you watch it more than I'd like, simply because you LOVE it and would watch it every day all day long if we let you!!
*can recite the book, "Brown Bear," verbatim in some places! You love to repeat all the sentences, and in a very loud tone!
*also love to pray in a very loud tone, for some reason. You are going to be a dynamic Christian! :)
*Your favorite shows are Leapfrog, Bubble Guppies, Umizoomies and Veggie Tales, although it varies. You also love the movie, "Cars".
*are still throwing tantrums! But, it's okay. You're two. Being two is hard! :)
Our schedule these days includes a Tuesday play date with our friend Jaci, Wednesday, nursery while Momma helps out with the preschool choir at church, Thursday Bible Club, and Friday MOPS. We had a really fun week last week since we were able to go to everything we had planned because NOBODY was sick...wow. This winter has been brutal! But - God is good! All the time!
Oh, man, one more thing....If I forget to include this I will be sad! Valentine's Day stuff....It was not very eventful but I got some pics of a very "sweet" day (and not to mention, sweet smelling!)
|Sorry so blury!! He and Miss Brooke found treasures at their breakfast table that morning (a tradition passed on from my momma from her momma...)|
|From daddy to mommy...:)|
Happy to have spent Love Day with the ones I love. It is SO special!!
Well, friends, that is all I have time for at the moment...I will leave you with this...There has never been a time in my life that I can say that I am wearing one (or more) of four things on my shirt each day, until now - snot, pee, poop or vomit. Yep, friends, it is always exciting and never dull!!!
Fun times, fun times.
Happy February! :)
