3 and 1.

3 and 1.
I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old.
Can anyone explain how that happened?

Nothing about them getting older makes a bit of sense to me.
I look at each of them like they are
my precious, tiny, helpless, totally dependent,
most needy little babies.

On January 19 Kensington turned 1 and I swear grew 4
inches and 5 lbs over night.

At 1 year old Kensington:
smiles constantly
laughs loudly
sleeps 12 hours at night
takes 2 naps during the day
has no interest in walking on her own
caught bronchitis :(
says mama and daddy
and night night
adores her sister
eats any and everything in sight
really loves blueberries
almost done with a bottle
has started MDO once a week
weighs 19.6 lbs
will let me snuggle her any time I want
will fall asleep on me 95% of the time
hates breathing treatments
still cries quite a bit 
does a silly one armed "booty scoot" to get around
likes to read with us
has come SO VERY far since we brought her home.

At 3 years old Anslee:
Goes to school twice a week
has complete conversations with us
has not worn a diaper/pull up since May 9th of 2011
still is an awful eater
takes 1 nap every afternoon
sleeps 11-12 hours at night
loves being a big sister
knows her shapes, colors, letters and numbers through 15
plays well with other kids
and independently
waits anxiously for her daddy to come home each day
takes dance class lessons
gives hugs, kisses, and "I love you's" unprompted all the time
loves Dora, Barney, and Cliford
enjoys trips to the library
is super sneaky
loves junk food (ugh.)
loves to play at the park or anywhere outside
has had 1 haircut
loves to pretend
weighs 26 lbs
would drink apple juice all day everyday if she could
makes her mama and daddy laugh every single day.

Tyler and I give thanks each day for these two precious girls God entrusted
us with raising. We look at each of them like the miracle they are.
We are tired a lot of days, but thats ok because we are full
of joy and very happy.

A birthday party post is in the making!
