Andrea is 3-years-old and is a bundle of energy. She likes to dress up and she hates to take naps. Andrea is very adept at stalling or coming up with plans to get out of nap time. The other day Andrea came up the stairs and announced that although she really wanted to, she couldn't take a nap because "someone" had locked her out of her room. That's sneaky smart and it almost worked.
Andrea has been working on her pronunciation and has recently learned how to say the "k" sound. Now she always asks for Cake. "I get it if I can say it" that logic works for me too.
Annie is 19 months, and her favorite activity is eating. I haven't yet found a food item (or non-food item) that she doesn't like to eat. She also tries all means at her disposal to stop from falling asleep. Right when she starts to close her eyes she jolts awake and starts yelling. She also enjoys shoes and being clean.
This is the sign Annie makes whenever I want to take a picture of her. I think it means "feed me long and prosper".
Because she is too interested in what everyone else is doing to sleep, she is tired alot. Other than rubbing her eyes she also picks her nose when she is tired. When we first got her she would cry for 45 min to 2 hours to avoid taking a nap. Now she yells, "mama" for 5 minutes and then she's out. Thank goodness for that. Amber is a nap training genius.
Even though everyone told us how different our life was going to be with three little kids, I didn't realize how different our life was going to be with three little kids. I have a new found respect for all the parents of large families. We are more tired, cranky, happy, fulfilled and spiritual than we've ever been.
