Quick little update...

We've been busy around here...really, really busy. I'm still surprised that February is over and we are almost in the middle of March! Here's a quick update since it has been a while.
Quinn is just the sweetest 14-month old boy ever. He is funny and laid back. He just started taking one nap a day in his crib instead of sleeping beside me on the couch. He loves to laugh and dance. We have been meeting once a week to learn some sign language to help Quinn communicate better. I love learning sign and really hope that the kids will really start to pick up on it too. And yes, that is a Starbucks coffee cozy crown on his head...our love of Starbucks starts young.
Brecken recently exited the terrible twos even though she is not turning three until May. It was like she woke up one morning and decided to be the nice and kind with only a hint of attitude. Brecken is talking more and more every day and I love hearing her thoughts. Brecken still has rather strong opinions on what constitutes "good music" and sometimes we don't always agree on what that is. For instance, she hates the song "Hey Jude" and will cover her ears until I change the song. I'm sure her music tastes will only solidify more as she gets older...if we are fighting over music at age two, what is it going to be like when she is 13?
Blake lost her second tooth last week. She insisted on tying it to the door knob again...I would not be surprised if that is how she thinks everyone pulls their teeth out. Blakeley is a writer. She writes on anything and everything and is always asking how words are spelled. Next year Blake is going to be in full day kindergarten and she is so excited about eating lunch at school. She has been taking swimming lessons and just loves the water. Blake also joined the Daisy Girl Scouts and loves selling cookies...especially the mint ones.
