Green Thumb

I'm nothing like my mother, who creates and builds the most beautiful gardens you could imagine.  If she lived at a lower altitude, with more than one warm weather season, Claude Monet would ask to paint at her home.  But, those cards can't be dealt and...I try.

The first day of Spring the boys and I picked up some fresh planters and got to work.  We filled some empty pots I had around the house, a couple baskets and put a ton in our front yard bed.  Aiden is beyond obsessed with…the hose…so he's in charge of watering!

Aside from planting and eating dirt the boys had their 15 month check-up.  Kaleb weighs 20 pounds 1 ounce and measure 30 1/4 inches tall.  He is absolutely on track with talking.  Currently he says Mama, Dada, Kaka ("potty" mouth), Kitty, Boom, Doggie, Turtle, Cow and signs Milk.  Yodeling is still Kman's choice communication.

Aiden weighs 21 pounds 14 ounces and measures 30 3/4 inches tall.  He says Mama, Dada and Kaka.  Yesterday Aiden started what sounds exactly like barking…..but tonight during dinner I realized he is actually meowing.  I think.  The cat meows…he barks.  Funny!

Both boys can identity nose and eyes, window, door, painting, flowers, light, fan, smoke detector…..They eat with forks, point to things they want, understand gobs of phrases (like: lets go brush our teeth, time for breakfast, lets go upstairs) and LOVE reading stories!  They also roar like lions and go ooo-ooo for an owl.
