Penn at 20-22 months + MC Update


Penn turned 20 months old on October 15th, and his vocabulary really picked up that month. New words included shoes, foot, rain, juice, milk, night night, muffin, Daisy (as in Duck), Minnie, down, poo poo, block, and balloon.

October was a good month. We celebrated Pink Out in the Jungle. I took MaryCollis to the Loblolly Festival, and she helped me work several shifts for both Arts League and Junior Auxiliary. MC's class visited the pumpkin patch. We took the kids to the MSU/Auburn game (Penn's first), and we became NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION. Like, what? We went to Eagle Fest at St. John's. We went to the fair. MaryCollis watched her seed grow into a plant, and she performed with the children's singing group at church.

MaryCollis has become more and more interested in dressing herself, which is interesting sometimes. Well, let's be honest.... most of the time. She loves dresses... To that, she will add one of Gamma's purses and some jewelry, then she finds the gaudiest headband and sparkliest shoes she possibly can. And Voila!

This month we also had a Halloween party at MC's school, Trunk or Treat at church, and Tent or Treat at NEJ. For the St. John's party, she was a pink princess; for church she was Elsa; and for our NEJ event, she was Anna. Each costume she wore this year came from her dress up box upstairs and was something we already owned. Boom. Halloween fo free.




In November, we attended Emma Kate's birthday party. We took the worst family photos in the history of the world. MC had a horrible ear infection. I spent my life in play practice, then we finally performed Cinderella. MaryCollis had her first Thanksgiving lunch at school, which I missed because I was performing Cinderella. And FINALLY, we enjoyed a lazy Thanksgiving break. The kids enjoyed playing outside and riding the mule so much at Gamma and Doc's house that I am bound and determined to move to the country just to see them be that happy all the time.

Penn's vocabulary has tripled since October. He says Mickey Mouse (instead of BaBa); book; From "Dora" he says Dora, Map, Boots, Benny, Swiper, and Backpack; Nick and Chris (from his class); bulldogs; donut; chips; floor (as in 3rd floor playroom); plane; truck; cereal; pancakes; door; Penn; "Frozen" and Elsa; elephant; hat; Pop Tart; and finally.... Gamma/Cindy (yes, he calls her Cindy sometimes!). He even says some phrases like Socks off; Shoes on; Stop it, Mama; Sit down; Come on, Sissy; and Fix it.

It seems as though his monthly antibiotic prescription is finally over! He hasn't been sick in so long I can hardly remember it, and I'm so thankful. He was such a sick boy for over a year. MaryCollis has been more sick this year than he has, which is strange.

Two more weeks until Christmas break, and we intend on doing NOTHING. Except baking lots of cinnamon rolls, watching lots of movies, and visiting with lots of friends.


PS. MaryCollis at 22 months.
