Catching Up

Monday, September 27th, 2010

So the picture a week failed miserably at some point I just ended up forgetting about it. A lot has happened since my last post and we are beginning to embark on new roads…

Carleigh and Luke are growing like weeds. Luke is already at the brink in his 12month sized clothes and fits comfortably in most 18 month sized stuff. He now has six teeth, the last four all came in at the same time (no fun) and he is standing up on his own and will try taking several steps unassisted… I am sure it won’t be long until he just takes off. Carleigh is finally starting to outgrow her 2T clothes at least in the tops, her shorts and pants are perfect for the time being. She now also sings her alphabet and can count to 14.

A few weeks ago Mat and I took the kiddos to the Zoo for the umpteenth time and it is amazing to see the changes in the kids actions. Carleigh now likes to find the animals in their exhibits and count them while Luke is now showing interest in the animals (at least the brightly colored ones).

In any case, I plan on writing a bit more about the kids, if nothing else, to be able to go back later and re-live their developments.

Carleigh is almost 2!

I realize with less than a month left until Carleigh turns two I haven’t documented the things she likes at this age… This past year has been filled with baby dolls, dress up, and balls of any shape and size. In the last month we have gotten more chances to play outside and Carleigh is becoming a huge fan of outdoor toys like balls and sidewalk chalk. She still loves coloring and playing with play-doh, but she LOVES to be outside. So last year she loved dogs, and while she still does, she has broadened her love to include many zoo animals like the Mingos (flamingos).

As far as food, Carleigh is trying new foods, but starting to no longer eat the veggies she used to like. I find myself pureeing them just so she will keep eating them. At least she will eat them 😛 She loves fruit snacks, granola bars, pretzles, mandarin oranges and meatloaf. Not too bad a list if I do say so myself.

Life is great with the family and I look forward to the many new likes and changes in both our kiddos.

This is what happens when you let an almost 2year old dress themselves. An absolutely adorable walking comedy show.

We took a beach day 3/15 with Daydree and Sean and it was B-E-A-utiful!

So I was making lunch and I didn’t know why the kids were being so quiet… Turns out Sesame Street was on and I got a great picture of both of them intently watching it.
