Spring Forward, Fall Back

Fall may be rapidly approaching, but our kids keep progressing with a spring in their step. Lots of changes to report, although I’m sure I will not capture them all. Angelique and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary on 8/12/2017, and we ended up going out to lunch for some sushi. Before we did, we got a family photo.

Christopher is talking more now. He has his go to words, and continues to build confidence. We are certain that one day he’s just going to take off and start babbling. He’s picking up on his chattier older sisters words and adding them to his arsenal. And now they each demand time standing on the counter to practice saying the letters and the associated objects.

They certainly have their moments bickering, but the enjoy playing together.

Michaela typically directs the day’s play activities. Michaela and Emma, when they aren’t whining, are usually able to clearly tell us what they want. It’s always something completely unexpected to, like a bottle top on the counter, or a hair scrungie. Michaela’s morning routine includes asking me to turn on the TV, torn off the light in the bathroom, open the door, and give her multiple kisses goodbye. She also insists on having the “Pink Diaper” (training pants) if she sees them. I’m happy to follow her instructions 🙂

Emma continues to amaze us with how she’s able to repeat big words. She has grown fond of the new Amazon Echo and is always telling Alexa “Good Morning” and asking her to tell a joke.

Interest in potty training is growing, especially with the girls. They had their playdate yesterday with KhloeBella, and the girls noticed she had panties on and was going to the potty when she had to go. Obviously they are making the connection now, as they were repeatedly going on the potty the rest of the afternoon. Michaela even went at the church daycare on Sunday when the helpers asked all of the kids. Wow! The timing couldn’t be better as we’ve all but given up buying nighttime diapers from the stores. Get them on Amazon now because I’m tired of them not having the size I’m looking for.

Hope you enjoyed reading!
