What the girls are up to

This is just a quick post to mention what the girls are doing right now. They are both talking up a storm, however, they have not yet learned that you are supposed to listen to the other person and then respond so they talk at exactly the same time. I spend a lot of my time saying, "I'm sorry Sweetie, Mommy didn't hear you. Can you say it again?"

Hannah is clearly emerging as the "spokesperson" for the two of them. If you ask Grace a question, 9 times out of 10 Hannah answers for her, and then if you wait about 10 seconds Grace will answer for herself. The answers often do not match.

Hannah also always volunteers other people to do things. For example:

Me: "Who is going to clean up all these blocks on the floor?"
Hannah: "Mommy's turn."

Me: "Your bath is over, who is coming out?"
Hannah: "Gracie first."

They are both starting to grasp so many concepts. I find more and more that I am explaining things to them. Half of it they probably do not understand, but I do it anyway. On our way to Daycare each morning we see cows. If the cows aren't there, I tell the girls that they are still sleeping. The other morning it was dark out and Hannah asked me, "Sun still sleeping, Mommy?" I said "yes" because I didn't think we were ready for the earth's rotation discussion, but we'll get to it.

More Landon

Grace was really checking Landon out the other night. Hannah is curious about him, too, but didn't want her picture taken with him. They can both say his name. No post about Landon would be complete without a picture of the proud Mom and Dad.

Happy Hallowe'en (a month late!)

Hannah was not happy about me taking her picture in her costume. Also, she ended up having a fever and not going out Trick or Treating, but Grace went and brought back the candy which Hannah quickly took from her.

Now that they're two, they have to pull their weight!


We're so proud of our new and only nephew!
Landon Richard Edward Menard came into our lives on November 13th at 6 lbs. 15 oz. I've never been so proud of my sister, and that's saying a lot!

Way too much to catch up on, but here we go...

Here we are on Thanksgiving 2007!
