Ballerina in Training
The last month in our house has been quite busy...as usual. Both of the kids are doing great; getting bigger and smarter everyday. Their favorite thing to do each day is singing and dancing. We always have music going in the house or in the truck and with that comes a little hip movement. Bella is getting very good at learning routines, which I hope is the result of her weekly dance classes. Speaking of, the little princess had her first dance recital a couple of weeks ago and it was so precious. We thought it was only going to be a song or two, but they ended up doing 6 different songs. Out of 8 little girls, she and 2 others by far did the best. I cannot express how excited this makes me to see this little miracle move the way she does and get so excited about it. I'm really impressed with her dance skills and they progress a little more each day. On other things, she is constantly bossing her little brother around, repeating everything mommy and daddy say, and starting to cry wolf a more often to get her brother in trouble. On the health front, her constipation issues have been very up and down this month and her asthma has been completely out of whack the last 2 weeks. But hey, I will take something that is manageable over anything else. As for little brother, Zach's speech is steadily getting more and more understandable. He communicates very well but he's obviously still at that age where you can't always make out the words that he says. You can almost make out every letter when he says his ABCs. And you can definitely tell that he is soaking up so much from his big sister. Other than that he is still being all boy, throwing tantrums, and being very picky about his food. It's hard for me to believe, but I guess one of our little family can't be all about food. Probably the cutest thing big sister and brother are doing these days is pointing to my belly and saying "baby" and giving s/he kisses. They ask about baby at least once a day now. As for D3, we are still cooking and that is key. Baby is moving a ton and my belly is huge. So far this has been a "typical" pregnancy for my standards; constantly have to pay attention to what my body is telling me and take it easy as much as possible, lying in bed and on the couch more than anything. Our next ultrasound isn't for another week. As soon as I have some more pictures we will definitely post them. Until then, enjoy the newest pictures of our adorable babies.
