i haven't done an update on the girls since reid turned two
and since her little half birthday is today,
it reminded me to write a little something up on the blog.
i think the biggest change in reid is her speech.
this girl l o v e s to talk.
all the time.
about nothing and everything.
we hit december and her speech exploded.
i was a little worried because i always felt like
brette was carrying on conversations so early,
and i wanted reid to catch up, but
now that her words have found her,
they don't stop. lol.
also, reid is completely potty trained.
she might still have an accident every once in awhile
at school, but i think it's because she's too busy and
doesn't want to take a break.
on the weekends we never have an issue.
the biggest change in brette is her knowledge
of her letters and her writing.
she has been able to spell and pick out letters
in her own name for awhile, but now she's spelling and
writing a lot more.
i like reading to her before bed and making her help me or pick out letters.
i CANNOT wait for the day she's reading on her own.
she has to "sign in" to school every morning and
the improvement in her handwriting from august to now is CRAZY.
i've also noticed that she can color inside the lines and
draw pictures of actual objects instead of just scribbles.
it's like she grew up on me!
they are both still picky eaters.
i don't think we've sat down for a meal
where BOTH girls eat.
it feels like if one eats well, the other one
maybe took two bites.
it's very conditional and they are very
vocal about what is "disgusting."
reid is currently on a chocolate milk kick and
brette loves summer sausage and cheese.
they both love candy. (eye roll)
some of their favorite play things?
they both love barbies right now.
reid is a bit young, but she wants to do what
brette does, so they're both into it.
as long as you keep them separated, its
fine, but if someone has the wrong barbie,
things get heated.
they also love to color and paint.
reid still love stickers and play doh and
brette likes shopkins and my little pony.
oh, brette also loves movies.
she would watch a movie everyday if i let her.
i can tell she's going to be one of those kids that
i'll have to limit her screen time.
it's one of the reasons i'm refusing to get
her any sort of tablet.
i know she wants one, but i figure i'd rather "play"
as long as she can and i know she'll have one in school,
so why rush it.
reid loves the song "little red riding hood" from the 60's.
we literally listen to this song at least three times a day,
but sometimes it's definitely more like 10.
the best word for both of them is: funny.
i think my kids are hilarious.
ronnie and i laugh together everyday over something
one of them says.
i wish i could video our lives just to have these
we're half way to their birthdays and i
can't believe my girls are on their way to 3 and 5.
i have to say, 2 and 4 has been a great combo.
