Ok, on to the fun stuff! Lorelei celebrated her half-birthday on the 26th. She was tickled to find out that she is now three and a half! She was a little disappointed that she didn't get to half (oh my word that was a typo, but I'm leaving it because that is funny stuff!) a birthday party. (Note to self: next year I think I will let her do something with ONE friend since her birthday is kinda a big shin-dig. I may even let her do something in the next week or so...because you know what people? Her half-birthday is a big deal to me too!) Anyway, Lorelei is in a super fun time of her life and I don't want to miss a minute. We weighed her and she is 30 lbs 8 oz.
Funny Lorelei story: Her mother unfortunately is known to say, "Oh crap." Ladylike I know. As a result a little three and a half year old I know also says it. I can't really get mad at her. I just explained that it isn't very nice and I need to work on not saying it as well. So when she says it and I give her the look she says one of several things, "I said oh crip not oh crap." Funny! or "Oh crap move-my-clip-to-yellow." Also funny. The clip comment is from preschool where they do a red/yellow/green behavior system. More on that a different day. And now she is trying to change her expression totally and this is what I heard all day yesterday, "Oh Pippa." Don't have a clue where that came from.

Boaz is now half. As in half a year, or, less awkwardly, six months. At this point he is a laid back and happy guy. I hope he stays that way because between his mama and his sissy things are a little dramatic up in here. Boaz is my BFF in My Fitness Pal because I get to deduct calories for carrying that guy around! He is 23 pounds! As in 7 1/2 pounds less than his sister. As in wears 18 month clothes and some 24 month clothes. And he is a hugger. And a kisser. And as Chris likes to say, "on the eve of crawling." He gets up on all fours but usually just pivots his booty to a new spot and repeats. He has thrown a fit or two...like when he got into his sister's markers and then I took them away...I forget how soon the training part of parenting creeps in.
Alright, that's all I have for today folks. I'll be here all week. (That is what Lorelei is always saying. Thank you Monsters, Inc.)
