Funny girl

Rachel is in a really cute phase. If you hold out your arms to her, she runs to you. Her sense of humor is really developing; she teases and giggles and laughs at the drop of a hat. And she loves to dance!

My mom made the purple tiger (okay, I see that they’re zebra now) pants. She’s got some great pajama pants tips!

On the off chance you’re wondering, she’s growing. She turned 19 months last Thursday, and she visited the doctor recently and she’s 22+ lbs and 30+ inches. She seems even bigger to me!

We were worried about her language at her 15 month appointment, when she didn’t even say “Mama” or “Dada.” The doctor said to wait until 18 months to see if she started talking. And she did! She has about 15 words now, including [always whispered] “titititi” (tickle), “h’ow” (hello), “buhbuh” (bubble), and “deydis” (there it is).

And best of all, she picked up another word in the middle of her exam. Hayden tried to take the toy she was playing with and Rachel declared, “MY!”

Rebecca and Hayden take on the world

When you have a child, you want him or her to be able to succeed. To take on the world and win.

When you have two, you want them to do that together.

What have you done to help prepare your kids to take on the world—including giving them a sibling to work side-by-side with?

Dancin’ Fool

Hayden loves to dance. Now presenting Hayden’s first music video!

Note that he does, in fact, say, “Kitty” (or “Ditty”) as he’s getting up. And then he makes monkey sounds. What can I say? He’s a talented kid!
