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!

Kanaan's Kronicles ... 2 Years 9 Months Update!

Kanaan is 2 years and 9 months old.
He weighs 24lbs 6oz and 34.75in tall.

His favorite show is "Aardvark to Zucchini" and "Brainy Baby".

He is wearing size 3 or 4 disposable diapers. 4 works better for absorbency, but he still fits in size 3. We usually buy size 3 because Eden uses that size too and you get more size 3 diapers for the same price as size 4.

He wears 2T/24m clothes. The pants fall off him and are a little long, but 18m pants are too short. In shorts he can wear 12M or 18M.

He wears size 5 shoes.

He loves to sing, "ABC's", "Jesus Loves Me" "Little Drummer Boy" "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" etc

His favorite thing right now is for us to sing "Rock a Bye Kanaan" and drop him into his crib when we say "and down will come Kanaan cradle and all."

His new "word" right now is "probably" all though he says "probly". I'll say "Where's your cup?" and he'll say "In the playroom probly"

In his show "Aardvark to Zucchini" each episode focuses on 1 letter of the alphabet and they talk about different things that start with that letter and go through places or names in the Bible that start with that letter. On the letter C episode they talk about Canaan. We had just watched the E episode that mentioned Eden, so when I saw it was the letter C episode I said "Canaan will be on this one" and Kanaan said "Not C for Kanaan, K for Kanaan, Not C."

As soon as we get in the car he wants to read books and gets upset if we ride in Daddy's car because he doesn't keep books in his car like Mommy does.

We haven't started potty training yet, but the potty chair is in the bathroom. Every time I go to the bathroom he wants to sit on his potty chair. We've been talking about how Mommy and Daddy wear underpants and use the potty instead of diapers. Once we are done with our kitchen remodel, I might start working on potty training.

He can count to 20 and recognizes and names numbers 0-9. He also recognizes and names the alphabet.

He has been using a lot of "time" words like tonight, tomorrow, today. He also says "to later" instead of just later, because the other words have "to" infront of them.

Eden's Edition ... 18 Month Update!

Eden turned 18 Months on 5/2/16. Today at her check up she was 21lbs 8oz and 33in tall.

She wears size 18 Months clothes. 

She's in size 3 and 4 in shoes. Some 3s she has outgrown, but she has a few she can still fit in. 

She is in size 3 disposable diapers and medium rise cloth diapers. 

She says around 100 words, and pretty much just repeats whatever we say. If we ask her to say "Eden" she will say "Hope King" because she knows her name is Eden Hope King. 

She calls all drinks "milk". She will correct herself if we tell her it's water or juice. 

She loves to give hugs and kisses. 

She loves Pogo and thinks he's hilarious. 

Sometimes she will just run around and laugh. 

She is always running off with one of her shoes, so we can never find matches. I'm pretty sure she actually threw one of her new shoes in the trash, because after wearing them once, they are nowhere to be found. 

She likes to throw stuff away so I have to monitor the trash, to make sure what she throws in there is actually trash. 

She wakes up around 7 or 8 (or sometimes even later); takes a nap from 12pm-3pm and goes to bed at 7pm. 

She thinks she can do anything Kanaan can do. 

She has 12 teeth. She's kind of on an anti meat/veggies kick right now. She loves her carbs, fruit and milk. 

She is a chocoholic. I call her a chocolate detective. If it's here she will find it.

She said her first 3 word sentence (other than "uh oh drop it") yesterday. It was "I want cookies" That is so typical Eden. Our little sweet tooth.
