Happy Holidays!

Monday, December 8th, 2008

It has been quite some time since we have updated so here we go. OD is still loving school, however, he does not have much to report about his days unless we pry with questions. I am beginning to see improvement in his control of pencils/crayons. I am sad to report that he has now entered the “Mommy, I’m bored…what can I do?” stage. He is becoming very independent and is full of “why” questions. They seem to never end some days. At the end of this month OD will officially be 4! He is going to be sad that he has to give up 3 and 3/4. (That is how old he will tell you he is now).

IC is doing just as well. He is now above 18 lbs but I don’t think this will please his doctor at the end of the month. I guess we will have to stuff him with extra Christmas goodies to try and add a little more weight. Over the Thanksgiving holiday everyone was sick except for daddy. We had a pretty nasty cold of some sort. I even had a nasty case of laryngitis that I have still not totally gotten rid of. But other than that the entire family is back to a holiday normal. IC is now communicating pretty well with signs and a few words. Over Thanksgiving he mastered the sign “please” and even threw in a little Pwee, pwee, pwee when he was offered something that he really likes. He also mastered the sign for “Help”. When he wants anything that he can’t reach or do himself he signs help. It is quite amusing. As of this week IC has officially figured out how to run. He has been walking extremely fast up till now to keep up with everyone. He and OD get along for short periods of time but they fuss at each other more often than not. Despite this IC follows OD around like a puppy. He wants to do everything his big brother does. I will post the updated stats in a few weeks. Until then Merry Christmas and count your blessings.
