Emma turned 3 in May and can speak in full sentences. She's in her winey faze, but terrible two's was never an issue for her. She is still a little sweetheart ♥ She is totally onto having friends, more than ever! She likes to play with the older kids. She doesn't like it when the younger ones mess with her. I tought her to say "I don't like that." She is learning how to express her feelings in a positive way. Toddlers have a lot of feelings they don't understand. She loves animals, especially water creatures. She's gentle and a very good big sister.
Mya just turned two in September. She is filled with energy. I love that she can use her words to tell me what she wants now. She always wants something it seems, so it's nice to know what it is now. Before she would just scream until she was understood. It was quite the guessing game. I've been very busy making sure she gets the attention she needs. Her hair is finally long enough to put it in a small pony tail. She loves playing with her baby sister! As the middle child I make sure she knows that she is a good little sister and a good big sister. It's an important job.
The newest addition to our family is my sophie dophie ... Sophia is a beautiful baby. She is a big baby, the classic Gerber baby :) I can't believe how much time has passed. Sophia will be a year old dec. 6th already. She started sitting up on her own at 4 months old, and crawling at 6 months. It was a beautiful blessing to watch. Mya learned faster because she had someone to watch. Sophia is learning a little faster because she sees her two sisters. Our family has grown a bit in the last 3 years and it is everything I ever could have hoped for.
We did some traveling to visit some family and old friends. Before Sophia was born we took a bus to Oklahoma for Halloween last year and then to Illinois for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and left for home by plane shortly after Valentines day. It was a nice experience for the girls. They enjoyed the time we spent away, but they are happy we are home.
