What is going on with the kids? I'll recap.
Gwendolyn - in ballet and tap, Play Ball and started soccer this spring. Team Marshmallow is rocking! Gwen is sort of afraid of the ball but scored her first goal this weekend, go GWEN! She is doing well in pre-school and becoming more talkative with her classmates. She still loves playing with her dolls over anything else, coloring and making art projects a close second. We decorated Easter eggs this weekend and she loved it!
Madeline - started ballet last month and loves it. She is talking up a storm, being silly and singing songs. She is also in Play Ball at school and has learned some new skills. Maddy LOVES dressing up, reading books, coloring with Gwen and yelling at Jack. Maddy's favorite person is MOMMY but I am still not allowed to help her put her shoes on or get in the car - she has to do it "Ba meself!"
Jack - getting over the biting phase. We went 3 weeks without an incident, but Friday he went on a bender and left a full dental impression on Maddy's arm. He is talking a little better but still struggles to be understood. He is in Play Ball and we're looking forward to signing him up for other sports to burn off some energy. He LOVES reading, and has been seen flipping through Maya Angelou books and Body for Life, along with age appropriate books. Mickey Mouse is still his favorite buddy and goes everywhere in the house with it.
The kids are doing great and life is so much easier now that they are a little older. They will occasionally play together without fighting and sometimes disappear upstairs after dinner and leave John and I alone for 10 minutes. It's rare, but does happen.
