This little dude turned a year last month. How has this past year flown by so quickly? How is little E a YEAR OLD? He’s walking and climbing over EVERYTHING (and so proud of himself!), talking: “da-da” (says this all the time!), “ma-ma” (only in extreme, I-really-need-momma-now cases), “na-na” (we can’t figure out if this is “night, night” or “i wanna nurse!”), and “uh-oh!”…as well as a bunch of other random sounds. He’s grown TWO teeth so far, one on the top and one on the bottom. It could not be ANY cuter!! E loves the dirt, playing in the mud, pushing cars and trucks around, as well as chewing on his sisters princess shoes and fairy wands (!), and is just starting to draw with sidewalk chalk and crayons. His little personality is coming out and he definitely has an opinion on things. When he doesn’t get his way, he shows us how he feels about things,…a lot of times with an arched back or a loud shrieking yell! HA! He is so precious though and such a cute little guy,…we love seeing who he is becoming and his full range of personality!!
This little fairy girl just recently turned 3! Oh my, is it SO much fun watching her grow and learn new things everyday! She’s such a little lady and LOVES dressing up. One minute she’s the Little Mermaid and the next she’s Princess Leia. She has SUCH an imagination these days and is constantly serving me “tea and cupcakes” or putting on a “dance show”. She just recently started a dance/gymnastics class and is LOV-ING it! The first day of class I was a little nervous as to how she’d do, but she soaked it up and by the end of the class was asking for more! She loves playing outside, doing crafts, and running around barefoot. This fall she starts preschool. How has my baby girl grown so much?! We love her kind and gentle spirit and her tenderness toward J and me, as well as her little bro, E. Seeing those two together TRULY melts my heart. It’s unbelievable.
What an adjustment it’s been with 2 children, but beyond that, what an AMAZING gift it had been. They are both so precious,…what a treasure.
