random notes

She always insists on having her PJs unzipped a little bit so that she can check on her nipples at a moments notice. (???)

Speaking of her nipples: Alex said she was wearing a pair of overalls the other day with no shirt. She thought it was hilarious to lift her arms up and down (causing the overall bib to go up and down too)~ saying: "Nipples in, Nipples out! Nipples in, Nipples out!"

She spent most of today with another 3 year old friend. When it was time to go they hugged about 15 times, telling each other they would miss each other soooo much.  She was also smacking on a piece of gum (first time she hasn't swallowed gum). She just seemed so much bigger and independent in this moment.

And Seo has been growing fiercely as well. He went on his first long walk down our dirt road today, and he is becoming more vocal about what he wants out of life.  It is becoming clear that he is going to be more of a feisty handful than Lili was. He is already practicing mini tantrums :)
He continues to look like a little copy of Alex.  See? ------->

And a quote my cousin posted on facebook today that is always good to remember and so true.

If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them as you think you should and half the amount of money.

That's my girl! On her 18th birthday, I'll take her with me to New Orleans and we can earn some beads. Seo? Tantrums? If he's anything like his daddy, just give him a spoon and stick him in a pile of dirt and he'll be happy. The resemblance is haunting!
