I have to get these thoughts out before I forget. As a side note, I'm a bit delinquent at filling in a baby book for these kiddos. I just don't make the time to do it and I fear that milestones or memorable moments will be forgotten.
Last night, at dinner, we offered Michael some french fries. Almost immediately he started saying, "Ashe, Ashe, Ashe" which is him saying the letter "H." He started moving the fries and making them into the letter H!!!!! It was so cute and awesome!!! This past weekend he made an O or circle with his crayons for the first time. Constructing the H was a first and so cute.
We both really feel like he's just a step or two away from writing letters. Tony asked if I'd thought of getting him those writer books that have the letters in dashed form. I had thought of it but wondered if it might be too early. Since Tony was thinking of it, too, I guess we both think he's ready for them. Just a page or two at a time.
Sesame Street & Between the Lions has dramatically increased Michael's vocabulary and knowledge of the alphabet and letters. Of course, we think he's a genius.
Baby girl likes to talk and sing songs to us. She's equally as awesome. Friday, I placed her on her belly when we were packing the car. When I came back in the room she was on her back! First flip. She might have done that sooner, but she doesn't get a lot of floor time with big brother. He likes to lay on her.
