Alexander and Jordan

August 15 - September 7, 2006

Alexander:  Mom and dad have largely been ignoring us so that they can work on the kitchen.  Well, ignoring is not quite the right word.  A better word would be - working-hard-to-make-the-kitchen-look-better-while-also-spending-a-lot-of-quality-time-with-us.  I do have to say though that the kitchen cabinets do look good.
    I have also been spending time with Ethan and Kyle when I can.  They came over last weekend for dinner.  Their daddy was home alone with them, and he was going crazy (my dad says the same thing about us, hmmm...).  So, he brought them over to play.  At least then we can all play and don't have to worry about them trying to talk "like adults".
    I am still stuttering a lot when I talk, so I will be working with a speech therapist through the school district.  It is frustrating when I can not say what I want to say.

Jordan: My biggest new trick is that I can do bumpy-bump down the stairs.  I sit down at the top and go down on my butt.  I don't know why they did not show me earlier.  It is fun and so much better than having to wait for them to help me get down the stairs.
    I am a also quite a dancer.  I especially like to dance to the themes for all of my favorite shows - Bob the Builder, Barney, Little Einsteins, etc.  I am no Fred Astaire but I do a pretty good job at it.
      

Kitchen Renovation Progress
   

1. 2. 3. 1-3. See, we have proof that we can play nicely with one another.  As long as Jordan does not touch my piece of the sidewalk or my chalk I have no problem with him.
4. 5. 6. 4. Mommy, how do I draw a lion?  How about nana's puppy Evie?
5. No, of course I did not eat a piece of the chalk.  Why would you think I would do that?
6. Can we move into the fort when we are done?  Our house is too crowded with pieces of the kitchen.
7. 8. 9. 7. Yes, some of it got into my mouth.
8-9. Wasn't there a movie about a man who could write with his left foot?  We are auditioning for the sequel - "My Right Foot".
