Eden's Edition...2 Year Update!

On November 2, Eden turned 2 years old!!

Eden weighs 24lbs 8oz and is 33in tall. 

She can sing the ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Jesus Loves Me, and Happy Birthday. 

She is no longer in a crib, and is doing well in her "big girl" bed. She does go into Kanaan's room when she wakes up. 

Eden is wearing 24M/2T clothes and size 6 shoes. She wears size 4 disposable diapers and Large rise in cloth diapers. 

If we ask her if she is a cutie pie she says "No, Tootie Pie" it's so cute. 

Everything is "My do it" 

Some of her favorite things are "Hair Bears"(Care Bears), Paw Patrol, and Doc McStuffins. 

She is full of attitude and sass. She has two care bears that talk "Grumpy Bear" and "Cheer Bear" I told Andy her Care Bears match her 2 mood options. She is usually one or the other. If she's particularly grumpy, food or sleep usually makes it better. 

She likes to have her hair done and a bow put in. Although she usually takes the bow out in the car if we go anywhere. 

She can undress and dress herself. Often, when I go in to get her up from nap, she has her shirt on backwards or pants inside out. She also will take off her diaper. 

For her birthday she got a grocery cart and she calls it her "car seat". 

She loves Pogo a ton. Pogo mostly just tries to stay as far away from her as possible, unless she is eating. But, she is learning to sit still and pet Pogo, so he is beginning to tolerate her. 

Kanaan is her best friend. They are inseparable. If she falls out of her bed she cries "see Kanaan" and will run to his room instead of ours. I had to take Kanaan to a doctor appointment and she stayed with Andy. We were gone for about 4 hours and they both laughed and hugged for about 5 minutes as soon as we got home. 

I bought a new candle this month and set it on the counter to light later. The next day I couldn't find it and I searched all over. The next day I found it in the bottom of the trash can with bite marks out of it. Apparently, Eden must have smelled it and thought it would taste good. Took a bite out of it, decided it was bad and then threw it away. Now when she see it she says "Mommy's candle right there. Don't eat Mommy's candle, it's yucky. Mommy's candle gets hot"

She has 3 pairs of shoes she prefers to wear, gold sparkly flats, Pink and silver sparkly flats, or black boots with sparkly bows on them. Sometimes when I put her tennis shoes on she will take them off and put on one of the other pairs. Then she cries and cries when I have to switch them back. 

Andy broke his foot, so she is obsessed with owies right now. Several times a day she says "Daddy hurt his feet" "Daddy has owie on his feet" She also claims she has an owie on her finger all the time. Nothing is wrong with her finger, she just wants you to kiss it. 

She is such a firecracker and we love her so much. I can't believe we've had this spunky, fiesty girl for 2 years now!

Kanaan's 3rd Birthday Party

On 9/3/16 we had Kanaan's 3rd birthday party. This year he wanted a Sesame Street Party. We had a party at the park. 

I made Elmo cupcakes

And Cookie Monster Ice Cream

Aunt Kayla made all of us Sesame Street Character T-Shirts and Tutu skirts for the girls. Kanaan picked the characters for each person. 

We made tissue paper pom poms into Sesame Street Characters. It's hard to see but Pink=Abby Cadaby; Red=Elmo; Purple=Count; Green=Oscar; Teal=Rosita; Orange=Ernie; Yellow=Big Bird; Dark Blue=Cookie Monster

All of our outfits. Kanaan=Ernie; Andy=Bert; Me=Cookie Monster; Kayla=Elmo; Eden=Abby Cadaby

They got a swing set from Nana and Papa. I need to take a picture of it all set up. 

Last night going to bed as a 2 year old.

First night going to bed in his new bed.

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!
