Alexander and Jordan

July 9-16, 2006

Alexander: We have gotten to spend a lot of time with Kyle and Ethan lately.  We are taking turns going to their house for dinner and coming to our house for breakfast.  We also go out to eat together which is always more fun for us than it is for our parents.
    I should confess that I have had to spend a lot of time in the naughty chair.  My parents have started this new "no warning" rule for when I hit them or Jordan meaning I go immediately to the chair whenever I do either of these.  I say, how is Jordan ever going to be tough if he does not learn to defend himself?  There may be something to the comment that Jordan is going to be bigger than me someday and beat me up.  He is at higher percentiles on height and weight than I was at his age.
    I have been helping daddy around the house the last couple of weeks.  He has been doing a lot of outdoor stuff like weeding, killing ants and redoing the landscape edging.  I mostly get to carry the hammer and shovel, but sometimes he lets me dig the rocks.  It is hard work, but somebody has to do it.

Jordan: Last week, I said I was walking.  I take that back.  I am running.  My parents can hardly keep up.  They keep wondering outloud why they ever encouraged me to walk.  Now their lives are more complicated and hectic than ever.  I take it as a compliment when they say I have no fear.
    I am up to about 9 words - mama, dada, baba (grandma), bubble, balloon, down, all done, uh oh, and da (yes).  My favorite is da.  I feel anything that sounds like a question should be answered with a loud "da" regardless if that is my answer or not.  Even though those are the only words I know, I make myself understood.  I point to the TV and say "Uh oh" when the Thomas the Train DVD is done, I try to climb the bathroom counter when I want to sit next to daddy and brush my teeth, and I point at the refrigerator when I want a drink of juice.  For everything else I just cry.


    (Sorry about the lack of pictures.  Stella had to have the camera for the competition.)
   

1. 2. 3. 1. Everywhere I go needs to have a piano.  Without my music I am lost.
2. Poor Joel.  He asked for by sitting on the ground.
3. Is there a baby Guinness Book of World Records?  15 grapes in 2 minutes for a 1 year old has got to be some kind of record.
4. 5. 4-5.  Why do they keep encouraging us to "play" with the vacuum?
6. 7. 6-7. Spending time with my friends - Kyle playing stickers and Ethan playing piano.
