Elliot and Leah continue to do incredibly well. At 21 months, they are quickly overtaking their father and I in intelligence. Their vocabularies are enormous, in both English and Spanish, and they speak in logical phrases like "doggy barking" or "Elliot sleeping" or "Daddy watching TV". They know the alphabet and can recognize some letters in any context. Both kids know the words to quite a few songs love to sing and be sung to. Songs they know include "Twinkle, Twinkle", the alphabet song, "If You're Happy and You Know It" (called "Happy Know It" or "Clap Hands"), "Happy Birthday" and "Old MacDonald" (called "E-I-E-I-O"). When they sing songs to me, I die of adorableness and love. Don't puke, please. They also love playing "I Getchoo", which is when I chase them around the house saying "I'm gonna get you!" But they are happiest when they are outside running around and getting dirty. Thank goodness spring seems to be finally arriving.
|Eww, Garbage Truck!|
|Not as innocent as she looks.|
|You try staying mad at that face.|
|Not expressive at all, that one.|
