I find myself forgetting to update this blog for a while and then I feel like I can't put anything new until I update all of the old stuff. Eh. I'm changing my mentality. Sometimes, I don't have the pictures on my computer to update properly with pictures, but I've decided to just write anyway. My kids are too much fun and I don't want to forget all of the little adorable things they say or do.
The other day we were watching a House Hunters International show on HGTV. The kid was packing up his toys and the mom told him that he wouldn't see his toys for six weeks. Lexi exclaimed, "Six weeks?!? That's almost a whole month." I love her.
Anytime the dogs bark or someone knocks on the front door, Jayvan squeals, "Nana," while running towards the door. His "Nana" sounds more like "Nina!" We go with it.
Yesterday I kept Jayvan home and he kept calling for his friends from school. "Emma?!" "DJ?!" "Dabe?" (Gabe). He loves his friends and misses them when he doesn't go to school.
Lexi has started collecting pencils. It seems to be her first little obsession (in a good way of course). She currently has eleven unsharpened pencils that she carries around with her. I'm not sure what brought on the new attraction to unsharpened pencils, but she has no plans to stop carrying then around and asking us to play "Pass the Pencil." For those who aren't aware, this is a came where you sit on the wood floor and roll the pencils back and forth.
Jayvan loves to have his picture taken. He'll grab my phone, point it at himself and say, "Cheese!" Most of his self-portraits involve closed eyes and interesting cropping. I'll try to get some up here soon.
