The Bigs turned 2 1/2 on September 11th. I can't believe they are growing so fast. I hate it!
It's hard to tell you about these two. They are just so outrageously awesome that you just want to know them.
M is a goofball. He loves so hard. When he kisses, squeezes (hugs), wants to be close he does it with all of his might! Have you ever loved someone so much that you just want to squeeze them so hard they loose a little breath. Well that's how he loves EVERYONE! He has no fear. He jumps from super high heights, he tries new foods (more than once), he runs and tackles Daddy with no hesitation, he happily goes into nursery at church, he talks to 'kids' whenever he meets them.
G is so playful. He loves to play and he loves for people to play with him. He'll bring you a toy and say come play with me. He wants to make sure people are always involved. He is a snuggler. Lately he loves to be held, even if it's just carried from this spot to 5 steps away. He loves to snuggle in bed with mommy or daddy or even just his big stuffy's. He too is fearless. He is a little bit more cautious but still fearless. After a few face plants and falls in his short 2 1/2 years he makes sure he's not going to get TOO hurt before jumping from this to that or running and tackling someone. He loves to try new foods. He will taste something (for example a green olive) and if he doesn't like it let it fall out of his mouth and then ask to try another one (I guess just to make sure it really isn't something he likes).
I have to talk about both M & G when I talk about their speech. They both have such an amazing vocabulary. I have NO idea where they learn some of their words and phrases. Lately M's favorite is "no way" or "yes sir". I remember when their yes reply was just "k". It then moved on to "mmmhmmm". Then yes, now "yes sir". They know just about every vehicles name (cherry picker, excavator, fire truck, dump truck, train, fork lift, just to name a few). They count and say their ABC's (mostly just sing their ABC's but we are getting there). They say their prayers and sing songs. They ask people around them "What you talking bout" when they want to be included in the conversation.
