B, you have had a lovely half term chilled out with all of us. It was a time we were going to go away for a little vacation and decided you were exhausted from all that learning and needed so much deserved down time at home. We slept in each morning, went for bike rides and walks to the park. There wasn’t a day we weren’t just hanging out in the fresh air outside. Spending so much time with you I got to see how much you really have changed since you started school in September even though little time had passed. It’s amazing what you can learn at your age so quickly. Each night, you continued to do some reading and writing for your homework by your choice and not ours. I love that you love to learn and I hope that is always the case. I have missed you so much since you started school but I know it’s good for you and me both. I am so proud of how well you are doing in school. You have made some good friends and I have too in the school yard. I love this new adventure we are on together as a family.
MM, each week you are out of your brother’s shadow you change and grow into your own little personality and self. It’s been a pleasure watching you make your own decisions and decide things on your own. You have become more independent than ever. While you started having slight demands and getting bossy I think that’s just the female coming out of you, your inner diva. I love watching you chat away with family and friends. Your conversations have become amazing to listen to and join in with. I have really enjoyed our one on one time together like I had with your brother. Each day, we have classes to go to together like music, swimming and gymnastics and we go out to lunch together just the two of us. I am so grateful I can do that all with you. You are growing up faster than your brother did maybe that’s just because your a second child and have a role model in him to copy and learn from. Either way, it seems to be flying by and the days of having a baby in the house are over. It’s an end of an era for us. Seems so exciting and so sad at the same time. I don’t want you to grow up yet.
