What's New...

On Friday morning, Hattie and Noah came over to play. The "Fridge DJ" was the hit of the day! I must say that I have thought about making the Fridge DJ "disappear" as it is really annoying. But Hattie, Noah, Caroline and Tucker love it! It was so precious to hear them all (yes, all of them) singing along to Itsy Bitsy Spider and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. They also knew the hand motions and this moment was just priceless! I wasn't sure we would ever see the day where they are all interested in the same thing! Normally this would be a problem, but not with the Fridge DJ. Noah changed the songs and they all danced and found themselves quite funny. I love watching Caroline and Tucker and their friends play together and interact. It is just amazing to think how much they have all grown up since we started this journey!

Caroline and Tucker have been on a coloring kick lately. Caroline usually initiates and Tucker follows along saying "cowor Mommy, I cowor." They have colored very well together. Caroline even allows Tucker (sometimes) to color on the same page that she is coloring on...amazing! It is so great to see them playing together and really enjoying each other's company. Tucker is really trying to follow her every footstep. This has been especially interesting when it comes to the potty. About a week ago, Tucker began to go pee pee on the potty. He still wears diapers and is not potty trained, but he loves to go potty when Caroline does. So now, Caroline loves to announce (loudly!) when she needs to go. I feel certain the point of this is to make sure Tucker knows she is about to go to the bathroom. The race begins...they both drop what they are doing and sprint to the bathroom to see who can go potty first. Caroline is usually the winner since she was the first to say she needed to go and Tucker is literally standing as close to the toilet as Caroline will let him get. He is ready to jump on as soon as Caroline is finished. He sits on his throne and smiles from ear to ear saying "I do it mommy, I do it!" Sure enough...he did it!
