Eldest is almost finished with 8th grade and looking toward high school and what she wants to do with her life. She is making and tossing decisions life, liberty and HER pursuit of happiness all with the maturity of one far beyond her age. She also had her first dance. We looked up the definitions of semi-formal and planned accordingly UNFORTUNATELY the weather had other ideas but thanks to our neighborhood thrift store we were still able to save the day. She is now in possession of a little black dress. ( her father about had a heart attack when he saw it on the hanger.) She looked beautiful. I was concerned about the amount of girls who would be wearing fancy pageant like dresses and her feeling frumpy. She didn't care, she was beautiful and she knew it PLUS she was excited about how we did her makeup, a fancy up-do and and beautiful dress for 5.00 when her friends spent HUNDREDS. Like I said maturity beyond her years. Sometimes I wonder how we raised a young lady like her. It also gives me hope for the other two girls ;)
Supernova has started signing like mad. A lot of his signs are the same though like chicken, more, and cup. So you know hes telling you he wants SOMETHING your just not sure what. He's also talking more he can say kiki and cook cook which mean pretty much anything that he can eat so we hear that word A LOT. He has learned to help pick up stuff so you never know where something will end up you just know its in a tote.
He helps get himself dressed. He show you what he wants. He has also started doing something else I'm not allowed to mention... hint it involves 8 hours of quiet. It can get crazy around here now. I love having a toddler around again! I miss this age so much. It is an age of discovery toddlers learn new things EVERYDAY. Today he decided that it was time to go outside to play. NAKED. It was 34 deg outside. Got exposed to a HUGE temper tantrum for not letting him go play. Once he gets outside all he wants to do is walk around. I love it!
He has also learned how to open the girls' bedroom door he knows there is a kitty in there and super cool toys that he's not allowed to have. He loves playing with his doggy. He chases her around the house and trys to pick her up ( not a good idea!)
best of all we love those doggy kisses! BLECH!
Life is amazing!
