- He knows his cars. We're sitting at close to 100 hot wheels (thank goodness they're $1 on average) and he knows either who gave it to him or the make of the car. It's really cute.
- He sleeps half off bed when playing with his cars. We only allow him to go to bed with 1 car but by the time he falls asleep he's got 5-8 cars and he's fallen asleep in some funny position because he was playing with them.
- "Ever did see" - he tells us "that's the biggest truck I ever did see" or, my favourite, when he was at the pool with my grandma he saw a large man come out of the pool and said "those are the biggest boobs I ever did see". Grandma was thrilled they were no where within hearing distance.
- He talks in sleep, but it's Very vague. The best is when I move him (from falling asleep half off the bed) or when I get him up to pee before we go to bed. The more common are: "something, something, something", "something big", and "that thing"
- Beyond excited about the "music truck". This week it came by the house while he was having quiet time and he called out "Mommy! It's the music truck. I need to see it" and came tearing out of his room and practically had his nose to the window as it drove by. (I feel a little guilty knowing he's going to figure out it's more than just a "music truck")
- He's growing out of little kid shows. He still wants to watch Max and Ruby but lately he's all about The Magic School Bus, which I love. He's learning and doesn't know it.
- His imagination is growing. He plays out scenarios with his cars and toys.
- He has his own language, thankfully he tells us what some of his words mean. Duka is a boy (Danny and Lynden play Duka every night - they name someone and determine if it's a duka or not a duka) and bayba is Alyssa or baby, I'm not too sure.
- He's becoming less afraid of things. He can play at the park on his own and he's going into water without bribing.
- She loves the slide. I know all kids love slides but it took her awhile to get it and now that she does she cannot get enough.
- As trendy as she is she's all about shoes. If there's a pair that might fit her she must have them on. It's super cute watching her try to put them on herself.
- She's taken to walking instead of sitting in her stroller, which is fine by us. And she holds hands; she even stops walking when you let go of her hand.
- She pats back when she's hugging you.
- She wraps her arms around your neck when you're holding her. I love it!!
- When the phone rings she brings it to us.
- She helps unload the dishwasher. She's watched Lynden do it that she wants to. She takes all the cutlery and puts it into the drawer for me.
- She has no fear of things (I may learn to hate this later). It's a nice change from when Lynden was her age and wouldn't try anything.
