The little people in our house

I've been slacking on the blogging for a while and I thought I would just update everyone on the happenings in the life of an almost 1 year old and a 2.5 year old. 

I'll start with Nate:

He's getting handsomer as the days go by.

He's still not sick of his train track, his puzzles, or his barn! Win for us, I hope he plays with those forever!

He LOVES music. He asks for "kid songs" all the time.  He's starting to sing along too!

He loves his cousins across the street.  

He's quite the chatter box.  If you don't live with him, you might not see that yet...he totally shuts off his chatter when we're around other people.  At home, though, he talks my ear off all day long. It's so fun hearing him use words.  The other night he woke up yelling, "enough scared! Enough scared!" During breakfast I asked if he had a scary dream.  He told us that he saw monsters. He then describes his monsters as sleeping yellow porcupines.....?

He loves being outside and is becoming very independent. He rarely wants to sit in the stroller, "Walk self!" and he doesn't let me hold his hand much anymore :(

He loves his letters!

He's a good big brother most of the time. We're still working on the fact that everything in the house does not belong to him and only him :)  He's getting there!

Now for you to behold our cute redhead with your eyes--

Now for my Aubrey:

This girl has an awesome personality and it's really starting to show. 

She has 5 teeth, 2 bottoms and 3 up top.

She's a walker!

She's got the best dance moves, especially when we encourage her.

She adores her big brother and will giggle anytime he pays attention to her.

She loves vegetables, yay!

She's a cuddler. When she's in the mood she'll wrap both arms around your neck super tight and just hug you till she's done. I love it, until she pulls my hair. She loves pulling hair. 

She's a climber and will climb on everything! She gets up on the table, the toilet, the couch, the desk...

She brings so much joy into our home. I love this little ball of happy energy!
