Amazing how quickly time passes. I had really wanted to post about the boys and record how much they have changed; but laziness overcame me on far too many occasions.
Now Anderson is 3 1/2 and turning into a little man. He’s so full of personality! In June 2009, he started Grace’s Little PreSchool with Bailey. He’s currently there 3 days a week and it’s amazing how well he has adapted to that environment. In December they had a little christmas show; he was quite the little show man with his exaggerated arm movements and facial expressions. The hours of practice at home was the most entertainment we had this winter. He’s learning to write his letters and can sometimes spell his name. At home, I’ve taught him some basic math and he’s great at counting his little digits. Anderson is a bit of a tv junkie like his mommy. His favorites right now are Phineas and Ferb, SuperWhy, Jungle Junction and Wow wow Wubbzy. He recites his favorite lines and draws parallels to everyday life. Lately, I’ve noticed he has an amazing memory. I’m not sure if all kids have this, but there are these moments where he will mention the most obscure thing based on his memory. Pixar rules in our house. He loves Cars, Toy Story and Wall-E.
I’ve said it before; I love this kid. He’s amazing to me. He’s such a great brother; from the beginning, he’s embraced Aidan and never displayed anything other than love to him. That’s not to say there are moments of indifference. Anderson is easy going kid and it’s easy to rationalize with him. Although, I have noticed that since starting school (or maybe since Aidan), he’s has this pout-y phase; where when things are not to his likely, he will furrow his face and look down. And when his feelings are hurt, you can sometimes see him fighting back tears. But on the whole, he’s is happy little boy and I continue to marvel in his personality.
And then there’s Aidan. Arguably , the real reason why I have not blogged all of last year. It’s been an adjustment having two. In my mind, I feel it’s been harder with Aidan. But I feel like we are finally hitting our stride. He’s been sleeping through the night since he was about 7/8 months. Starting to wean and he’s been adjusting without much resistance. Around Oct, he started to stand and take a step. In Nov, he took a couple more steps. December was the wobbly walk, still preferring to crawl and now, he’s totally independent. Aidan is starting to giggle and interact more. He loves itsy bitsy spider. He’s exploring with self feeding
