I love this little boy sooo much! He is so the most passionate child ever. He makes you feel exactly what he is feeling whenever he talks. He is not a shy child AT ALL!! He loves to meet new people and can carry on a conversation with a rock. We weren't worried until teachers at his school, who have been teaching for years and have seen multilple children, began asking us questions regarding his nonstop conversational skills!!
He has the most genuine affectionate personality. However, he can not stand Cohen. I really hope he starts to like her soon. But I guess I never got along with my brothers until high school....let's hope it doesn't take that long!! He is NONSTOP at all times and leaves a lasing impression with everyone he meets! He loves school, soccer, helping me with everything, shopping, trains, and swimming.
I also cant begin to tell you how much we love this little girl! She is so inquisitive about everything, wantingt o learn it on her own. She is very independent and don't even think about touching her when you put her to bed. She is not a cuddler Her laughs are growing more frequent daily and her vocal skills are expanding. She can identify most of her body parts, 5 expression sounds, her classmates, and family by using her flashcards. She can vocalize "mama", "papa", "up", "ball", and "snot". The last one is due to her forever congestion problem she has :) The teachers say that she is capable of saying more whenever she likes the incentive. She definitely does things on her own time!
Cohen has surgery Thursday to repair and place another tube in the left ear (don't try and figure out what number this is!) and she had a sinus lavage (fancy word for a good cleaning out.) She has been congested since July and been on and off antibiotics to attempt to clear up her sinuses and ears. After the last resort in early September, surgery was decided. She did great, but we were unable to get some tests run that her genetisist asked for, so we might have another procedure in the near future. Her sinuses were cultured and we are waiting to hear the next step in making sure it does not get this bad again.
She is ready to head back to school tomorrow, I think she likes it.....ALOT!!! She loves her homework and screams each night when it is over.
This post is kind of random isn't it!? I couldn't wait to put our the pictures we had made a few weekends ago. Last year was the first time in 10 years that I did not send out Christmas cards and it was because I never got around to ordering pictures and having cards made. This year I vowed to get it done early. September seemed good enough for me!! Don't worry I didn't put the best ones up yet, you will have to check the mailbox for those :) If you are looking for a great photographer-- http://www.frickfrackfoto.blogspot.com/-- they are super nice and the best part is you get a CD with all your pictures and you do your own ordering.
