*I started working on this post 2 weeks ago. They will be 30 months and 4 months next week. Beware…it’s a long one!!!
I really can't believe how fast time is flying. I know I say that all the time, but my oh my!!!
He talks all the time. In fact, he talks nonstop! I can't believe his vocabulary and he says the craziest things! Sometimes the things he says is at the worst possible times! For example, (and I'm sure this is inappropriate) the other day I had taken the kids to Georgia to shop and eat lunch. As the waiter was dropping off our check, Edward looks up at him and said, "I just tooted in my diaper." I wanted to die right then and there!
Last Sunday was promotion Sunday. Edward moved up to an actual Sunday School class where they actually do lessons and not just play. I was a little worried that he would have a difficult time staying focused and paying attention. We asked him what he talked about and he told us God. Later that night, Thomas had the following conversation with him:
Thomas: "Who made the flowers?" Edward: "God." Thomas: "Who made you?" Edward: "God." Thomas: "Who made Daddy?" Edward: "um, Pot!" (that's what he calls Thomas' dad).
He is a sweet, sweet boy. He loves both of his sisters. I can often hear him walking around the house saying "I love my Emmie Kate." I can't wait until she's big enough to actually play with him. I hope they grow up to be best friends!
He is super smart! He loves to sing and entertain. Last month he was at my in-laws house and picked up a calculator and said, "E-w-a-r-d" as he was pushing numbers. I'd say that's pretty good for a 2 year old! He loves to sing his ABCs, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Jesus Loves Me. He can count to 13. He is a huge fan of the Imagination Movers and loves singing along to all of their songs.
Another funny thing he said last month: Thomas: "Edward, you make me laugh!" Edward: "Awe. (pause) I tooted!" I know to some these are totally inappropriate but since I am not good at recording in his baby book I want a way to remember!
He has a very vivid imagination. I really try to encourage that and it helps make things easier when he's in one of his moods. We've struggled with bath time lately. One night I told him a frog was coming out of his head and that we needed to wash it out. He giggled and ran with it. Now frogs and turtles come out of his head, ears, tummy and nipples (he learned that real quick since I was nursing EK).
He is truly a joy and really keeps us on our toes. He’s a very active, loving 2 year old!
She has been such a joy. Compared to Edward as a baby, she is a piece of cake. She goes with the flow and is SO easy. She’s been sleeping through the night since she was about 7 weeks old. She changes every day, but still looks alot like Edward. She has been smiling for quite some time.
She has had thrush 3 times, RSV and a double ear infection, but through that all she has remained a fairly happy baby.
She loves to swing and sit in the Bumbo. She really takes in her surroundings! I look forward to watching her continued growth.
