Ella & Jayden Updates

Ella update:

She's talking in sentences now. She's been doing this for a while, but they're becoming more and more clearer. My favorite so far, "Mama! Pee-pee RIGHT NOW!" Yeah, that much fun to hear. She's still rolling her eyes at me... I've really gotta catch that one on video, because it definitely is classic. She's not as into the whole potty training thing as she was before, but this is my fault. I haven't been on her and need to try harder.

She's had a horrible cold, which I believe has become bronchitis - poor baby girl. But she's just as active as ever. Her cough is heart wrenching though.

She really looks up to her brother. Anytime Jayden does anything.... like riding his bike outside.... she's right there to cheer him on. She claps and says, "YAY, JJ! Good job, JJ!" Her eyes are lit up anytime he comes around and it's probably the sweetest thing I've ever seen in my entire life. I love the relationship these two have with eachother, and I hope that their closeness carries on for the rest of their lives. What they have is special.... not all siblings have that strong of a connection. The patience that Jayden has with her is astounding.


My little man only has a couple more weeks of school left. How in the world is it possible that my baby boy is going to be going into the second grade? How is my little baby growing up? I can't even call him my baby anymore, because he's growing into a little young man, and that's so hard. I love the person that he is becoming and I admire him for his manners, the respect he holds for people, and the love he holds in his heart for his family. We are his everything, and I couldn't ask for anything more than him. God blessed us with the most special little soul, and I hold so much gratitude in my heart.

My picky little guy is now "trying" new foods. This is huge. Jayden has always only eaten the same things over and over again and never given new foods a try. Well, I made a chart with 25 squares and told him every time he tries something new he'll get a sticker and once he fills up the whole chart he gets to pick out a video game..... it's working!! Jayden ate asparagus last night. Shocking... and he didn't throw it up! Lovely, huh?

His current activities out of school are baseball, piano and Karate. The piano is still going amazing as ever. It's definitely something that he just has a gift for. Baseball is almost ever, and it's been an enjoyable season. He likes it a lot better this year than last year, but I still feel like soccer is a much better sport for him. I don't think he really cares for Karate, but we feel like it is really important that he sticks with it.

So, there's my brag on my 2 precious babies...even though one of them really isn't a baby anymore *sigh*

I can't believe Ella is talking in sentences! That's awesome.

Yay for Jayden being such a great big brother--and that is a great idea with the squares. Hopefully he'll be not only eating these new foods, but requesting them as well!

Ella sounds like she's really advanced. After reading your post, I thought I better get Andrew in special ed, but I think he's just "normal". :o)
