My almost three year olds

I haven't posted in a while about the girls ever changing personalities.
They have really blossomed in the last year into
two beautiful little girls.
Sometimes I really miss the babies they once were.
Other times I find myself looking forward to
the next phase of their lives.
Either way I am just trying to enjoy every second I can
with my two favorite people.
There are a lot of things that are the same between you two
but so many more that are different.
We love helping you emerge into the two amazing people you are already on your way to becoming.

You are very sensitive, you love to tell me "I wuv you mommy",
you call us mom & dad (much to our dislike), you adore your sister,
you make friends very easily,
you love your trampolineand jump so care free,
you love to play mommy and are very attentive to your baby,
you are 95% potty trained,
you get your feeling hurt easily if someone is mean or yells,
you are such a great sleeper and your preferred spot is as close to sister as you can get which at times make sister a little annoyed,
you like to share so you can see the other person happy,
you sing all the time,
you have become such a mommy's girl,
you love makeup, jewelry and all things girly,
having your toenails painted is very important,
you seem to always notice when I have something new on
and like to tell me how pretty I am,
you are in love with your hot pink boots
and have been for quite some time,
you have frequent tummy 'aches' that can only be soothed by tums,
you are the best cuddler, you love to be rubbed,
you learn new skills quickly,
you are very gentle and sweet,
I love how you rub my face when I sing you your bedtime song,
you can spell your last name, sing your ABC's, count to 10,
and count to 5 in spanish.

You are very strong willed,
you can be very serious at times, you have the best belly laugh ever and sister can almost always bring that out of you,
you are extremely protective of your sister
and play the big sister role well,
you love your trampoline but would rather jump alone
so you can get as high as possible,
you love to play mommy with your sister,
you also love to have people watch you,
you like to sing and like to make up your own sillysongs,
you have been a daddy's girl for quite a while,
you love having your toenails painted like mommy,
you love to help mommy cook and will taste just about anything,
you love all shoes but have a fascination with running shoes lately,
you also have frequent tummy 'aches' that can only be soothed by tums,
you have to make sure mommy or daddy
are outside your door all night,
you say the silliest things sometimes
and love to repeat what we tell you,
you really enjoy making people laugh, you can be a bit bossy at times,
you are very smart and remember the smallest details,
we love how enthusiastic you are about learning new things,
you also can spell your last name, sing your ABC's, count to 10,
and count to 5 in spanish.

They're so beautiful! I can't believe how much they've grown in the past year that I've been reading your blog. Amazing!

Debra said...

Oh, I loved this........they really are gorgeous little girls....and now I'll be able to tell them apart by the personalities when I meet them. :)

Jenny you HAVE to take the girls up to Big Bear.. it is such a short drive and feels like a world away when you get there. There is still snow for them to play in.. even those places you can pay to sled at on their tubes and an escalator takes you to the top.. Perfect, effortless sledding! My girls weren't into the snow this year.. they aren't walking well enough.. but next year for sure!

Your girls are sooo cute - I don't even blog on here - but one of friends does so that is how I found your stink-in cute!

Jaime said...

They are so adorable! I love hearing about their personalities! I have a well-thought-out-yet-to-be-written post about my girls and their differences as well. This age is so fun, isn't it?:)

Stephanie said...

Jocasta said...

Sorry Jenny for the late comment - I've had this page open for ages meaning to write something.

This is such a lovely post - they are just the most adorable girls and they are very lucky to have a mummy that loves them so much.
