seriously. what can i say? if you are still reading this, thank you! i have been a terrible blogger this summer, but will try to be better now that school has started...
anyway, our ethiopian sweet potato is now 20 months old (yesterday)!! she is still so full of life and spunk and very much still a tiny diva. she is still talking up a storm. her most "signature" lines are commands, with some of the favorites (and most charming) ones being:
"mama (or daddy, or haan) , sit down!!"
"don't DO that"
"I do it"
she is also OBSESSED with "Barney." i am not quite sure how this happened as haan managed to go an entire 6 years without watching an episode, but somehow she saw it and now demands to watch it anytime we are in the car. i caved and bought like 6 "Barney" DVD's. i know, i know.... the rules are seriously different for the sweet potatoe...
in other news, haan started FIRST GRADE (you never think your child will really be that old) and seems to be loving it. he is also doing tennis, soccer, and piano this fall. E and i will be starting our toddler music classes together in about a week, so that should be interesting, as well.... we have been trying to get out every weekend and do some hiking so that we can instill our love for it into haan, and so far, so good. these pics are from yesterday's hike (which was also E's 20 month birthday). PLEASE ignore the hair. the weekend was nuts and somehow we went like 2 days without combing or conditioning her hair and she looks like a mad (totally cute) scientist.
