  • He waves hello, bye, and night-night

  • His favorite words are "woah" and "wow". "Oooo-coo" (cool) is also well used

  • other words: ma-ma, da-da, pa-pa, ba-ba (bottle), a-da (all gone), oo-da-do (where did he go? followed by putting both hands up in the air) wa-wa (bath, not to drink), da-da (also doggy, but somehow sounds a little different), there's others that escape me

  • He loves peek-a-boo and won't go to bed at night until it's been played

  • At bedtime he also waits for me to point to the mattress before he'll lay down. The funniest thing is he'll put his head wherever I point, even if he has to crawl to the other side of the crib.

  • He's a cuddlebug and a thumb sucker. It's easy to tell when he's ready for a nap because he crawls into my lap and starts sucking his thumb

  • he crawls soo fast, especially if someone has food he wants

  • he loves his papa (my dad) better than anyone/anything. If papa is in the room, Ethan will be on his lap.


  • Started dance today and loves every minute of it

  • is convinced she is a princess

  • loves her little brother, sometime a little too much. Her new thing is to carry him around. Keep in mind he weighs 27 lbs and she weighs 42.

  • is starting to understand sarcasm. If something goes wrong and I respond by saying "well that's fantastic" she'll immediately say "you mean it's not fantastic mommy. not even a little bit". This happens at least 4-5 times every day. Hilarious.

  • She learning to read and is so excited every time she gets it right

  • she loves her mommy. When she is sad, happy, tired, pretty much anything she turns to me. I love feeling needed.


  • Loves everything about 1st grade. His teacher, friends, class, everything.

  • Reading anything and everything. Right now he is into The Chronicles of Narnia and the Magic Treehouse. Did I mention he's only in first grade.

  • He also loves science and understanding how things work.

  • He had his first day of tumbling today and had so much fun. He's so much more coordinated than he was just a few months ago.

  • Enjoys helping around the house and is really great at it. Sorting laundry, emptying/loading the dishwasher and vacuuming are his favorites. The only thing he regularly fights me on is cleaning the playroom.

  • Is growing up! He gave Ethan his teddy bear because "six year olds don't need teddy bears anymore". I thought it was sweet to share, but was sad at the same time. I don't want him to be too old for his teddy bear ever!
