  • sleeps on her own for 45 mins during naps, and then wakes up crying. Gene then takes her to bed and naps with her, stretching it out for another hour! impossible to co sleep with me
  • learning how to jump. so far the top of the feet are still sticking to the ground
  • she can run but still trips depending on shoes
  • size 5 diapers in baby dry
  • size 6.5-7 in shoes
  • loves shoes and tries her collection on daily
  • lives off of oatmeal, smoothies, fries, pineapples
  • pinches pinches pinches
  • new words "yeah" "yep" (and using it appropriately!) "oatmeal" "draw" "help me" (sounds like ap-me) "shoes" (and it sounds like shoes) and words
  • new jobs include  throwing her pee diaper in the garbage and feeding the cat every morning. first thing she says is "Moe Eat" (she walks with a bowl of wet food from the kitchen to Moe's feeding station!)
  • knows the concept of "hot" so she doesn't touch the heater or the oven
  • puts her finger to her mouth and says "sshhhhh" 
  • went she gets mad, she likes to scream NO and throw things on the ground
  • still able to fall asleep on the carrier
  • when you ask if she wants the breast, she goes to the fridge and gestures for her Vitamin D drops 
  • fave youtube Vids are Pentatonix count to 5 on Sesame Street and One Direction What Makes U Useful also via Sesame Street
  • obsessed with buckles and spends patient time buckling and unbuckling herself from stroller, high chair, and her helmet
  • breastfeeding strong at after breakfast, before nap, bedtime routine and 0-1x during the night
  • usual bed time at night 745pm, wakes up 1-2x a night, fed once cuz I'm too tired. usual wake up time 615am
^^ "beautiful eyes" ^^ is it just a filipino thing to get their kids to do this? haha

me or Gene lookalike? 

As for Max...

  • obsessed with sharks (we own all the Jaws movies now) plus various shark pillows
  • insane amount of art work daily. did you know at age 12 the magic of imagination suddenly becomes suppressed? about 1% of kids retain the artistic creative magic that doesn't involve gore and wedding dresses as the perpetual topic of art)
  • less willing to try new flavours of food and much prefers tart flavours than sweet
  • able to write his upper case and lower case alphabet and read 3 letter words with encouragement
  • absolutely loves his sister; patient and encouraging of her learning. territorial only with his prized possessions (shark toys atm)
