Hi family and friends. What a fun time we are having with our two little girls. As I approach my graduation date and my career paths are being presented, I am so grateful to have the love and support of my girls. I am somewhat sad to see an era of my life end where there were lots of fun time spent with my children during all hours of the days. Now that I am moving to the more steady daily grind of a career vs school, The last 3 years are sure to go down as some of the best times of my life.
Ava is learning so much and is such a good big sister. Stella thinks she is the greatest and does not mind taking a bit of a beating if it means she gets some of Ava's attention. She loves to paint and color, have tea parties, and kick soccer balls. (All of which are indoor activities during the winter)
She has most of her letters with sounds down and is starting to count pretty good too. As a gigantic engineering nerd, I wonder how early is to early to teach her the basic quadratic equation solution.
Stella is HUGE!! She is barely 6 months and is already wearing 9-12 month clothes, weighing in at a 21 pounds. She has 4 teeth (2 on top and 2 on bottom) and hair is already in her eyes and cowlicks allow for perfect bangs. (According to KK)
Stella is a genuine happy girl and always greets people with a big, open-mouthed, slobbery smile. Her favorite things to do are jump in the door jam jumper, sit in her wee-go-round (dubbed poop-n-go-round because of the magical ability to induce diaper blow-outs), and chew on anything she can get her hand around.
As Stella has started to sit up and really interact with Ava, I've noticed this super cute bond start to form. Ava really cares for the wellbeing of her sister and always includes Stella in her activities when she can. (dress-up sessions, tea parties, spoon-feeding, bathing, trike/stroller pushing, hair styling) I hope they will be best friends forever.
