Baseball and astronauts
The kids got some new outfits, Lily had to try hers on and get her photo taken. Jason had to have his photo taken after Lily got hers. :) Even steven. :D
We went to a Mallards Baseball game the other night. I'm not real sure what was going on, but there were tons of dogs there... the police were there w/ their police dogs and there were lots of booths w/ dog related 'stuff' ... I was so busy wrangling toddlers that I didn't take the time to get it all. It was a lot of fun. Jason had a hot dog and french fries, Lily decided to stick w/ just chips, we spent more time playing at the park and Lily had a blast feeding the free dog biscuits to any dog that would take them from her. There was a 'batting cage' for the little ones too. It was a blow up thing w/ a spot that air blew out of to hold a wiffle ball up for kids to hi and Lily was all sorts of jazzed to do it. It was quite cute. They both actually managed to hit the ball more than once. They are gifted, but I might be biased.
Both kids have had recent language/understanding explosions. They are both speaking in complete sentences, and I think you can even understand most of what they say! ;) They are grasping concepts now too not just naming objects. I noticed today that for the last couple of days they have been using -ing phrases as well. It's been great fun listening to them chat all day. Their imaginations are taking off too. This evening they were playing astronauts.
Sorry I haven't been updating a whole lot... lots of stuff going and keeping me VERY busy.
