Kanaan's Kronicles ... 3 Years Old!

Kanaan turned 3 years old on 9/4/16. How is he 3 years old already?!

He weighs 25lbs 8oz and is 34 inches long. 

He wears 24M and 2T clothes, although the pants fall off him, he needs them for length. In shorts he can wear 12M or 18M perfectly. 

He wears size 5 shoes. 

Kanaan is in size 4 diapers.

He loves to sing: "Happy Birthday", "Farmer in the Dell", "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", and "ABC" are his go to songs. 

He now has a radio in his room, that he likes to turn on and off, throughout the day. 

He really likes Sesame Street, Veggie Tales, and Paw Patrol. Although he doesn't really watch Paw Patrol he like Paw Patrol themed stuff. 

Sometimes when he does something he will tell himself "Good Job doing it yourself" LOL. 

He can spell his name verbally. 

Some of my favorite "Kanaan Phrases" are: chicken for Kitchen.  being "too heavy" He will say I too heavy to reach it, or he's too heavy to get on something. He adds Probby for probably to things, he said "you probby a boy mommy" I said " I'm probably not a boy" He said "you Probby are a boy mommy" (He knows the difference between boys and girls, and knows that he and Dad are boys and Eden and I are girls). Sometimes if I tell him no for something he will say "you DO want ..." He will sometimes refer to himself as you or sometimes I. He also says "to later" instead of later, because you know we have today, tonight, tomorrow and he thinks it's tolater. 

He thinks anything pink or purple is automatically Sissy's. 

He is doing good with working on using a fork and spoon to eat, but he still uses his hands a lot. He also rubs his legs and feet while eating so he is usually covered head to toe in food after he eats. 

He has graduated from Physical Therapy, and can now jump and run. He keeps getting better at it. 

He loves to do puzzles and read books. 

"Llama Llama" books are his favorite. 

We switched him to a toddler bed the day after his birthday. He wanted the rail back on his crib at first, but then was ok in the "toddler bed". He fell off once the first night and hasn't since. He also will not get out of his bed, until we come in to get him out. 

He likes to stack the canned goods, and knows what most of them are. (We still don't have doors on the cabinets so he reaches them easily.)

He can go up and down the small slide we have at home, but otherwise he doesn't like other playground equipment, like swings or bigger slides. 

He talks constantly, I mean really non stop. 

Eden is his best friend, and he is lost if they aren't together. 

He is very excited about being 3 and thinks Eden is automatically 2 now. 

He still doesn't like loud noises, but is getting better. He will tolerate me using the mixer, but is still afraid of the vacuum. 

We love you so much Kanaan, and can't believe you are already 3!

Eden's Edition ... 21 Month Update!

Eden turned 21 months on 8/2/16. 

She is 23 pounds 6 ounces and 31.5 inches long.  She wears 18M clothes and size 4 shoes. She's in size 3 diapers.

She sings ABCs, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. 

She repeats everything we say, so there is no possible way to count how many words she says. 

She can put her sandals on by herself.

When it's time for bed she will say "Rock a Eden" meaning she wants us to sing Rockabye Eden and then when we get to the cradle will fall part, we drop her (like 2 inches) into her crib. 

She sleeps with a small cabbage patch baby that is wearing a ladybug costume, a crocheted bunny blanket buddy I made, a blanket and a cup of water. She must have everything in her hands before we leave the room. 

Often in the grocery store she sits in the seat of the cart and will say "Hug and Kiss" and then procede to repeatedly kiss me and hug me around the neck. It is incredibly adorable, however it does make shopping rather difficult. 

She loves Pogo. She will chase him around trying to give him toys. She also thinks it's her job to tell him when he needs to go to his crate. He disagrees. 

She loves Kitties too. She will always try to chase the Kitty at Grandma King's when she's there. She can say kitty, but usually calls them "meow".

She loves animals, but gets a little afraid of them when they move.

She loves fruit and will eat pretty much every kind she tries. 

She is full of Sass and Attitude.

This is a conversation we had last week: E- More juice
B- No you had enough juice, you can have some milk if you want
B- I know what you said, Mama said no, you may have milk or water. 

Sometimes she just randomly puts "I said" after words, even if she isn't being sassy. 

She will steal fruit off Kanaan's plate during meals and eat it, so that she still has a full serving on her plate to eat as well. 

She runs, climbs, and goes up and down stairs.

She thinks she can do whatever Kanaan can. 

She loves to read books

She also loves to play with Dolls. She has a baby that will suck on a bottle and then cry when you take the bottle away. One day she was pushing her baby in her stroller and she stopped and gave it a bottle, then when it cried she turned on the music stroller toy, and kept walking. 

She thinks water always tastes better out of her brother's cups.

She loves to watch "Bob and Larry" (Veggie Tales) 

When VeggieTales comes on she says "Broccoby, Gotta Be Veggie tales" Part of the song lyrics. 

If she finds the remote she will bring it to me. Even if Andy is watching tv and I'm in the kitchen. 

She always wants a "Namich" (Sandwich)

When it's time to go anywhere we can never find 2 shoes of the same pair because she randomly carries them off somewhere. 

She knows how to completely undress and take off her diaper. She is sometimes naked when I go get her out of her crib in the mornings or at naptime. 

Love you baby girl!! I can't believe you are almost 2 years old already!
