So what has happened in the last 4 months? Hmm. Well, Annabella started speech therapy to help with some of her word pronunciation. She's been going for a couple months now, and I'm definitely noticing improvement. Not only that, but I think she likes talking more now. She initiates more conversations and will talk about her friends at school. She's also virtually stopped the wordless wailing she used to do, and will now usually tell us what's wrong. Now that she's speaking more, we're getting more and more of the funny child logic. A couple nights ago she was playing with the syringe we use to give her ibuprofen, and she called it boo boo sauce.
Genevieve has started morphing from my sweet little baby into an independent toddler. She wants to do everything herself, and will throw pretty epic tantrums when she doesn't get her way. Sadly for her, she is our second child, and her tantrums don't really phase us. She loves loves loves to tattle on Bella. Last night Bella drew on the television with a crayon. We asked them who did it, and Genevieve said "Bella draw, Bella draw" over and over again. She also loves to tickle us. It's hilarious; so we laugh, which makes her think it's working so she does it more, and then we have to fake laughing. It really is cute though.
My house is almost never clean now. Every time we put in the effort to clean it (which really is pretty frequent), hurricanes Annabella and Genevieve come along and I wonder why we bother. They love to dump the toys out of their cubby boxes and then sit in them to make trains. It's a good thing they're so adorable. (Refer to exhibit 1, below.)
Jason and I are doing well. We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary by staying at a fancy hotel and getting a fancy meal. It was my first night away from Genevieve, which was hard, but definitely nice. The girls made welcome home signs for us and hung them on the door (with help of course) for when we got home. So sweet. Jason and I will also celebrate our 10 year dating anniversary this Friday. I can't believe it's been that long.
I'm sure there's more, but I gotta gets back to work. Here's hoping I manage to update again before 4 more months pass.
