IsaBelly loves candy!

Matthew had his bowl of candy out the other night and Isabelle scooted over to investigate and had a great time pulling everything out of the bowl. Matthew was pretty good about it after I assured him she couldn't eat his candy.

Other things that have been going on around here:

-Is doing GREAT in preschool and loves Miss Heidi.
-Says the funniest things all the time such as "hilarious" and "boring" in the right context. He tells us often that something is his "favorite" or someone is his "best friend". He also reminds us frequently of bad words we shouldn't say such as stupid, butt, and bum. Even if we haven't even said those words.
-Loves to learn new songs and sings all the time. His preschool teacher accidentally taught the wrong words to a song and when she corrected herself the next time he told her that "the new words" weren't right and she was singing the song wrong.
-Loves to count and loves the number 3 and must do things evenly. If he gives a kiss he must also give a hug. He cannot do one without the other. Sometimes he'll tell me 3 kisses and 3 hugs and then will do it 3 times in a row.
-Has lots of energy but also has a love of life. Everything turns into something fun or a game to him. He is usually a very happy kid but is starting to be mellowdramatic. Geez!
-Has a huge imagination and likes to be told stories at night in bed rather than reading books to go to sleep.
-Working on counting to 50. He's getting the concept of 21, 22, 23, etc. but then thinks it's 2010 instead of 30.
-Really wants to read so we found a couple of games online to help him learn the sounds of the ABC's and to read. He loves the computer so it's a win, win for both of us.

-Wants to crawl so much. She is sort of inchworming and scooting around. She can get to what she wants.
-Is eating solids really well and we just pulled out the high chair. She's so little in it. She definitely wants to eat when we are eating. She gets mad if we leave her out.
-Thinks Matthew is so funny. He can be doing nothing that is funny and she'll laugh and laugh.
-Just over 7 months old - the time is flying by!
-Is such a great sleeper. We love her smiling face in the morning. Always a smile!
-Can rival Matthew now with her yelling.
-Is so curious about her surroundings.
-Is learning to feed herself with her fingers. She's starting to be able to put cheerios in her mouth. We're working on her holding her bottle herself but she would rather have me do it.

She is looking cuter all the time! Sounds like you are having a lot of fun with both of those kiddos! It is so much fun as they get older and learn new things.

I love hearing all of the funny things Matthew says.

Kids really do say the most hilarious things. A while back Jenna was in bed with April and I turned off the lights. It was pitch black and Jenna said "I can't even see your eyebowls." She knew she was saying eyeballs but she said it with this ridiculous southern drawl/accent and it sounded like "Eye BOWLS"

I asked Jenna if she was "Daddy's Girl" and she thought about it for a second and said "Daddy I love you but I'm Mommy's girl!"

I can't believe Isabelle is already 7 months old! It's time for us to get together! I can't wait to see Matthew.
