Leo LOVES anything electronic He plays Star Wars video games on the computer and games on Joe's phone. I am so torn up about this. I try to restrict him, but nothing makes the boy happier. It has proven to be a good negotiating tool though...."if you make your bed, then you can play for 15 minutes." As a mom though, I feel guilty about these activities, which I equate to being a waste of time.
Leo and his best friend are always geeking out about Star Wars and video games. I am glad that Leo is a bit techy and geeky, I just want ghim to be well balanced with other interests too.
I registered Leo for Kindergarten! This was a huge step for me as a mom.....wow! I can't believe that boy is ready for school. I am really excited for him though and know he will love school. We have a couple of schools in mind and will be a part of a lottery system for a Charter school. Our local school is good though, I just hate the class sizes being so large.
Somerset loves art. She is so good at drawing too and has inherited some pretty advanced skills! Joe and I found the drawing featured at the top of this post and we were both amazed! Pretty good for a newly 2 year old.
Somerset is speaking in full sentences exclusively. It is still difficult to understand everything she says, but she is communicating beautifully. I love her sweet little voice and her sassy attitude. She definitely is our child: strong willed, determined, funny and stubborn.
I have to take more photos! This is a difficult age for getting kid photos. For Somerset, every smile is fake and Leo is just annoyed, so more candids will be in our future.
Joe and I are still very busy with our DIY hobbies. I am still very active with my soap making and looking for avenues to sell more. I have been making soap almost daily to prepare for a craft show that I hope is a huge success. I also need to reopen my Etsy shop.
Joe is preparing to enter another beer competition. He is brewing every few weeks and I LOVE his beer. It is really good, but he has very high standards.
