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.

Kanaan's Kronicles ... 2 Year 6 Month Update!

This boy is a hoot! He cracks us up daily. 

Kanaan is 24lbs 0oz and 33.5in.

He is wearing 18 month clothes, although some of the 18m pants are getting too short. 24M clothes are way too big, and 18m pants still fall off him. (evidence is in the pictures at the end of the post)

Kanaan can identify and name most of the alphabet. He also knows what letters some words start with. For instance "A is for Abby, K is for Kanaan, W is for Water, X is for Xylophone" those are the ones he always knows for sure. 

He can count to 20. He gets 1-10 right every time, but will occasionally skip a few numbers from 10-20. 

He loves singing the alphabet song, and requests Mama to sing it several times a day. I occasionally have caught him singing it, but I can't get him to sing it when asked. 

He loves reading books, doing puzzles, and coloring.

He wears size 5 shoes. 

He is in size 4 diapers(for absorbency), although they sometimes will fall off his butt. Size 3's did the same though.

He's in Large rise in cloth diapers. 

His favorite foods are fruits, veggies (except green beans) and bread.

He talks nonstop. 

He has such a good memory. He will remember stuff from months ago!

Before he goes to bed he wants a "Kanaan Sissy Samwich Squeeze". Basically it started every night before we put Kanaan to bed, Andy or I would hold him and we would hug with him in the middle. I always called it a Kanaan Sandwich and Andy called it a Kanaan Squeeze. Well now if we call it one or the other, he will ask for the other too. Plus he always wants Eden involved too. So now Andy holds Kanaan, I hold Eden, and we hug, while we say "Kanaan and Sissy Sandwich Squeeze".

He loves Eden so much and will cry if he wakes up before her and we don't get her up right away.

His favorite show is "Brainy Baby". Every morning when he wakes up he comes into Andy and my room and asks for "Brainy Baby". He always wants to watch it on our bed. Apparently it's better in our room than in the living room. 

He still likes Mickey, Sesame Street, Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol. He recently has been asking to watch Henry Hugglemonster too. 

He wanted to "hold the wall" in this picture. I have no idea where that came from but we went with it. 
This time he was really into getting his pictures taken. He wanted to "take pictures with numbers and chair" lol. 

He has one of the Llama Llama books almost completely memorized. 

He loves to sing almost any song. His favorites on the radio are "Sound of the Saints" by Audio Adrenaline and "If  We're Honest" by Francesca Battistelli. (click the song names to hear them)

He likes to watch "Will and Zoe" AKA "The Little Couple"

He loves "Padeki"(Spaghetti)

Ooops.. His pants fell off!
