So, we've been getting back in the swing of things around here and I will say that it's good to be back on a schedule. As for the kiddos and what's going on with them...
Avonlea is growing out her bangs as you can see here in the picture (notice the very pointy ponytail!). I wanted to do this a LONG time ago, but got impatient with the "fuss" so here we go again. Her hair is super short so it shouldn't take too long to get it to the length of her hair.
Lincoln loves doing anything his big sister does (or any other older child around him). He has to go outside when Avy goes outside, color when she's coloring (in which he usually eats the crayons), eat when she's eating, playing with a certain toy when she's playing with it and brush his teeth when she's brushing her teeth. Don't get me wrong, this is a good habit, but when both kids want to brush their teeth at the same time and there's one very small and narrow stool to stand on, push can come to shove amongst siblings. Avy is quite patient with him and corrects him often. What a good big sister. So, here are the kids brushing their teeth.
The Linkster is also wearing shoes these days (thank the Lord he can walk because 27 pounds gets heavy to carry all the time). I had a sweet friend give us some outgrown shoes of her son's (thank Christina!) and here is Lincoln trying them on for the first time today. He did pretty good.
