Ten Months

We’ve reached double digits… 10 months!

Crosby started in a new class this month and it’s going very well. We love his teachers and his little classmates. Unfortunately, he’s been out the last couple of days with a viral infection, on top of teething. The poor guy can’t catch a break. Hopefully the worst is behind us and he’ll be back to normal soon. He has been so “go with the flow” so it’s really heartbreaking to see him in pain and being so whiny. As a result, we’ve had a couple sleepless nights and hours spent sleeping in the gilder with him. I have a feeling we’ll have to sleep train him again next week once he’s all better.

On a more exciting note, the boy loves to stand. We (and his teachers) think that he’s going to take his first step “any day now”. He dances, bounces, and does squats while he’s standing, he just hasn’t taken that first step forward. In time! He’s not saying very many words now except for “da-da-da” and sometimes “uh-oh” if prompted, but his new thing is waving! I may be biased, but it’s the cutest thing ever.

34 Months

This is Miss K’s last monthly update before the big 3!
She had her first day of the older toddler class yesterday and had a great day.

It’s crazy how much she has changed since the first day of school last year.

IMG_10101

Since we always ask Kenley what she did at school that day,
she now asks us “mommy, what you do at work today?”.
Also, her answer to our question is now “nothing”. It’s like we have a teenager on our hands. As a result she has to say three things that she did that day or that happened at school. Most of the time she just gives us the names of her friends.

She has seen me do yoga a few times so her favorite thing to do is downward dog.
She sometimes call is “yogabba gabba” which is hilarious.

She frequently asks us (and her teachers) “can you say it louder, I can’t hear you.” sometimes when the conversation doesn’t even involve her.
She has to be in the know at all times.

We are still battling her trips into our bedroom in the middle of the night and it really depends on the night.
Sometimes there are no surprise visits, other nights there are several. You would think I would be more scared waking up to her staring at my face.

On the weekends we ask her what she wants to do today and her answer is always “go outside”.
We have tried to be creative with it since it’s been 100* these last couple months.

She can identify every letter of the alphabet and usually can give a word or two that starts with that letter.
We have been playing a game where we name someone for every letter of the alphabet, which is hard on mommy and daddy sometimes.
When she sees a letter, she usually says the person or asks “who start with L?”

The girl loves to talk and the things she comes up with are hilarious.
I cannot believe she’s going to be three years old in just two months!

the kids were out of school this week so greg and i got to spend more time with them than normal.

image

the perfect shoes for shark week.

image

this nice girl handed this to me on friday.
i appreciate the fact that she *may* have thought i looked like a college student,

so i didn’t have the heart to tell her that this event was way past my bedtime.

image

friday night we went to ‘fan fest’ at the stadium to kick off the football season.

image

we ended up seeing several friends while we were there!

image

i swear i ask this every week, but when did she get so old?

image

we were out of coffee creamer on saturday morning
and that was just the excuse we needed to go out to breakfast.

after panera, we did our weekly target run. luckily we beat the ‘move in weekend’ crowd.

image

we had some friends over for dinner, drinks, and dessert on saturday.

image

which was followed up with an amazing sunset.

sunday morning shenanigans.
