2 years old and 2 months old.

I can't believe Mikah is 2 years old. Mikah likes sports, legos, cars, animals, monster trucks, and painting. Mikah talks so much, sometimes he blows me away at the things he says. Mikah can communicate pretty much everthing. If he doesn;t know a word for something he descrbes it so we know what he is talking about. He has started playing soccer with a group here in houston called soccer tots, he absoulty loves it! Mikahs favorite foods these days are nuts, seeds, bubble gum, carrots, any fruit, tic tacs,pizza, chips and tacos he calls them sandwiches from the local taco stand. (he cries to go here, and so do I;-)) He has definatly hit the terrible 2's and I don't think it helps that he has a baby sister. Mikah finally likes going to nursery by himself. Today he killed a bug with his shoe and he asked mom "why its not flying?" i said "you smashed it so it died and went to heaven. his response "I like to go to the cat store not to heaven" he is so funny, and  has a mind of his own. He is starting to pretend alot, and trick mom and dad. Mikah is sleeping from 11pm-8am and takes a nap from 2-5. Mikahs favorite thing to do is play with friends. Everyday he askes to play with friends, he is a very socal kid. It has been nice cause there are alot of kids here his age. Mikah loves to go swimming, which he will be doing alot of this summer when we are all melting in the heat. But he likes to be held in the pool and is to chicken to swim with his floaties. His favorite movie is Rio, he could watch it all day, everyday if i let him. It has been nice cause he has picked up a few portugese words from watching the movie. He really likes music, I can turn on pandora radio and if a song comes on from a show he has seen he will say, lion king, tangled, dumbo, tarzan. He has a very good memory. I have to be carefull of what I say to him, if i tell him tommorrow we are going to the zoo, he will wake up asking to go see animals at the zoo. Also If i say we will biy batteries for your toy at the store. He reminds me to get batteries when we walk up and down the aisles of the store. he also points to things such as doritos and say daddys chips, and pistacios and say jessies snack. He has a very good meomory and is a very visual learner.  He has been such a great helper with the baby. He always tells me he will be right back he needs to check the baby... and gets things I need for her. He loves shoving her pacifier in her mouth. He is wearing 18month-2T clothes and a size 7-8 shoe. He currently weighs 30lbs. Little Mikah man is a big dude.

Liliana is 2 months old and is such a good baby. She coos and smiles all the time. She loves when people talk to her. She is really good at putting herself to sleep. I remember bouncing mikah for hours to put him to sleep. She is really gassy in the evenings, but other than that she is an angel and just goes with the flow. She goes to bed at 9:30 0r 10pm and wakes up at 2:30 and 6:30 to eat. She sleeps with us and loves to be snuggled really tight in my arms. I dont mind this one bit... During the day mikah keeps me really busy and its nice to have some snuggle time just for the baby. I think she eats like 3 oz every feeding but yesterday at dinner, she drank 4.5 oz. She is definatly getting chubby, just like mikah did. She has a very loud scream that she does when she is tired or needs a diaper change. I have had a few people tell me in public that she has a little temper. When she is mad... she is really mad!! Here are some pics of the kids.
