Kiddo updates

Aybra is well. She has learned how to wiggle around and now does it everytime she is put in the floor for tummy time. She will wiggle and wiggle until she is off of her blanket. She likes to watch TV and if the boys are watching something then she watches too. She is a very distracted nurser lately. She is just too interested in everything going on around her. She will suck for a few seconds then pop off and look around. Its making feeding very hard. Also she is getting to where she prefers her bottles. Hopefully she can get off of this darn medicine soon and get back to 100% breast. This pumping for her and Alo is killing me. Its not that bad too just pump for him but with her I never know when she is going to eat. Lets see... She jabbers a lot.. Like a TON.. Oh and she spits a lot.. probably more than she jabbers. She is very happy and thinks everything is hilarious. Her brothers never cease to amuse her.

Alo is Alo.. He got his AFOs and his KOs. The AFOs are soooooo tiny and then to think his leg and foot is even tinier than that! He doesnt seem to mind wearing them too much. His KOs he hasnt worn all that much yet but they are to help stretch his knees and position his legs better so he will wear them mostly during bedtime, but they have a lot of support and make it easier for him to do weight bearing so he will be using them for PT as well. He is getting better with pulling himself up. He is much much MUCH louder when he yells... If you have never had boys then you wont udnerstand but him and Kaia like to have yelling matches. They just sit and yell and yell and yell... Tis the life with two boys.. Im sure Aybra will be joining in soon.

He was a bit sick during the Holidays but recovered quickly and on his own! Woohoo! We are still holed up for the winter. Only a few more months to go and we will be free!!!!!

Kaia got a guitar for Christmas and is singing a lot of cute songs.. Two of them go like this:

Number 1:
"When I was a little boy I had a boat and I went to the river to see if it would float. It sinkeded so I went back home and my feet were wet from the water so I took my shoes and socks off and my feet were nasty and stinky"

Number 2:
"Twinkle twinkle little star, what did you have for breakfast? Did you have a poptart? Did you have spiderman? Did you eat the whole house? Twinkle little star what did you have for breakfast?"

He is doing extremely well with his school work and memerized his landline within 5 minutes, no joking. Papa taught him his mobile # but Kaia forgets some of it still. Kaia has graduated most of his PK work and is working on K stuff. Ive had to change a lot of my plans and goals for him throughout this year because of how fast he has learned things. This is one of the great things about homeschooling. He doesnt have to be bogged down with work that is too easy on him. Instead I can work in things that suit him.... like following directions. Hes not quite learned how to do that yet but Im guessing he might be an adult before he really learns that..
