23 Months

WOW he looks SO grown up here - where has the time gone???

This month he officially now says 'Yea' instead of just nodding his head for yes. He understands SO much and is such a lovely cuddly guy.

He yells no and pushes my hands away when I try to help (or just make sure he doesn't fall!) up or down the stairs. So I walk behind him with in arm's reach, but not actually touching him, instead!

He's such a sweet little guy though, this morning he got up quite early so laid in bed next to me for another half an hour and was just saying over and over 'Dadda, Happy' :) :)
Happy brother, cranky sister :)
They LOVE watching 4 wheel drive dvds with Dadda
Another harsh Australian Winter :) It gets a bit chilly outside - but usually warms up to the 60s if the sun is out!

The other day on the way home from school Genna said to me 'I wish we were born at the same time so you could be my twin and come to school with me. But you've already done school, so they probably wouldn't let you go.' I said nevermind how old I am for kindergarten' :) Sweet though, she was just saying that she likes spending time with me, and I do too. I love time with our big girl :)
Trying out the backpack leash - he didn't mind it as it allowed him to walk to the park, but without us worrying about him darting into traffic (he thinks running away from us is hilarious!!)
The week before last we had a few tough naps days - where he just refused to go to sleep in his crib. Ended up on the sofa like this :)

Sweet boy - I don't mind now & then - was nice to just cuddle him and be still (no naptime chores!)

Fun at the mall

another refuse to nap day - ended up taking a drive and he had a nice comfy nap in his carseat
The LOVE this new ride at the mall - another $2 waste of money for a 2 minute 'ride'! But fun to play in :)

Genna's first sick day this year - we took it easy because she had been up coughing alot in the night and was exhausted - fun to just sit and color together.

So so so so proud - she earned this Merit ribbon by getting 7 merit tokens for English (reading)
VERY proud :) !!!

An older pic I forgot to post from their school blog - cute little number 5!

Pop art they made - she's bottom row, second from the left
Designing a playground, with her partner Jake :)
