This week he: was super helpful in the garden and planted his very own butterfly seeds / insisted on including his dandelion in the school picture and pouted whenever the photographer requested it leave the frame / loved wading in the stream and collecting sticks and rocks / started occasionally talking in a high and squeaky voice that is driving us all nuts / had this conversation with me before bed tonight: him: mama, I like you me: oh thank you buggy him: mama, do you like me? me: of course I like you, I love you silly him: why? me: because you are my favorite silly boy, why do you like me? him: because you're really beautiful (killing me with the sweetness lately, I mean he may be shallow, but I'm so sold!).
This week she: ate lots of dirt and mulch and sticks / started trying more to pull up on things (I'm realizing how little we have to pull up on here, not so much as a regular chair!) / had her first taste of chocolate and corn on the cob / became very vocal, she can clear a room with her squawks / had her 9 month doctor's appointment and measured 27.5" and 17.5lbs
