We actually commemorated the Presidential Inauguration by measuring the kids on the door frame. Each of them are taller. Tres looks like he has grown the most and informed me that he has grown because he eats all of his lunch.
*Sophie likes to play 'Shoo-Wee!' She takes off her shoes and socks and sticks her foot to her face, or yours if you are close by, and says "Shoo-Wee!" Then she just giggles and chuckles and gets a big kick out of herself.
*When she gets in trouble we call her Ava Sophia.
*She 'talks' constantly and we are starting to understand a good bit of her words. She has added teeth, poo poo, juice, snack, please, thank you, I don't know, and a lot of others to her vocabulary.
*She likes to tell secrets now too. They are unintelligible, but so very cute.
*She loves to play babies. She carries them around, puts them 'night, night,' even tries to bathe them in the toilet (Clorox spray to the rescue!).
*She loves to eat salad, broccoli, eggs, apples, fruit snacks, and chocolate. She likes to be independent when she's eating though, so don't try to feed her, just give her a fork and watch her go at it!
*Her hair is getting longer and thicker, but it still looks like a fuzz ball when she first gets up! So cute.
*Bry loves school and playing with his friends. The first thing he reports when I pick him up is who was at school and whether or not he ate all his lunch.
*He is getting taller! Tall and skinny.
*He won't let me fix his hair 'handsome' anymore. Handsome to him, apparently, is combed over to the side. So every morning when we go to fix his hair, he tells me not to fix it handsome and inspects it when I'm done.
*He will play with Sophie for hours! Kitchen, movies, blocks, cars. He gets on her level and she eats it up!
*His speech is improving drastically.
*He is counting down the days until he is going to Tres's school too!
*He can read anything if he tries. We can't spell out things anymore like t-o-y... he knows now. We can still get away with spelling some things really fast, but he picks it up most of the time!
*He is loving and affectionate.
*He is also getting taller! Taller and thinner. He is such a little man, now.
*They love to play Wii, but most of the time when Tres gets home from school, they go into their room, close the door and play Lego's or something for a good hour. They watch about an hour or less of TV a day.
*He is so animated and descriptive and makes me smile sometimes when I probably shouldn't.
*He falls asleep so fast! He says he's tired and he means it, so get that boy to a bed fast! :)
