11 Months – What the what? How did that happen?

April 21, 2017

I thought I could just share a snapshot of the boys’ favorite things at the moment. My heart gets so full when I think of these amazing men in my life. You know the saying, “Nevertheless, she persisted.” I feel like that should a tagline on every single one of my kiddos’ pics. I worked my butt off to get here, and I’m loving it.

Samuel:

  • Food: oranges, mushrooms, eggplant, baked potato, sweet potato, mango, strawberries
  • Books: He LOVES books with flaps, especially the Karen Katz ones! Where’s Baby’s Belly Button is our go to at night right now. We have it in English and Spanish.
  • Toys: Duplos, balls (for chewing), stuffed animals to cuddle
  • Word: He says “Dada” all the time. Some days he will just go to the front door and say “dada” over and over.
  • Movement: He pulls himself up on everything and can now squat and sit back down. I get way too excited about this kind of stuff, but it is so cool to watch how kids master new skills. He also started pointing!! Mostly at bottles, but now to other stuff as well.

Jonen:

  • Food: He would tell you he likes everything. His go tos are still cucumbers and tomatoes. His favorite food at school is curry rice.
  • Books: What Do People Do All Day – Richard Scarry – Jonen reads this book every night and brings it into our room every morning. He LOVES it!!
  • Colors: Green and Blue
  • Toys: Teddy is his favorite stuffy (It is a teddy bear named Teddy…very original on our part). Jonen is Teddy’s dad and they live in a house in New Zealand that is on the beach and near the mountains. They have a large garden and it is always the opposite weather of Seattle. Very interesting home he has…I want to move in with them!
  • Subjects: Baseball, Space, Magic, Puzzles, Maps and anything Richard Scarry.
  • He can count to 10 in three languages. I just find this as a fun fact because we joked he could do this at one month. He was apparently teaching the other kids in his class how to count in Spanish.

Here we go..picture time…these are both from our day so far:
