Eva continues to grow and grow. At her Dr's appointment this month she was 32.5 inches and 22 lb 12 oz. She remains super tall, 99% for height, and just right 70% for weight. I have even started pulling out some of the 24 months tee shirts and pants out for her to wear. Eva's understanding is just exploding with new concepts. Yesterday she smashed her finger in a door and while crying held out the finger, closed her lips and "Mmmm" ed for me to kiss it. At Family Home Evening we played Ring Around the Rosies and Duck, Duck, Goose both of which she loved. The next day she kept patting people on the head and saying "duck, duck." Eva continues to be fascinated with animals. She has the Baby Einstein's Neighborhood Animal movie that I can put on and know that she will be enraptured for 25 minutes, long enough for a shower or to make most of dinner. Her favorite word is "No" accompanied with a little shake of her head. But she also pinches her nose and says "tinky" for "stinky" after she has done her business.

Summer flew by in a blur of fun and activities. All too soon, school was upon us and we had to re-enter the world of early mornings and schedules. This year my brood are attending three different schools, with three different start dates, and three different schedules. It was the beginning of September before they were all attending and we could get into the real groove of school. But we are settled in now and I can tell that it is going to be a great year.
Abi is in the Sixth Grade at our neighborhood elementary. She loves her teacher and getting to rotate to different classes. She really enjoyed being on Student Council last year and is hoping to run again this year.
Leah was super excited to start preschool this year. She loved picking out her special ballet slippers to wear at preschool. She has already made friends and is excited to go each Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon. She loves coloring, singing the songs and playing with the toys.
