Madelyn & Theo Update


I haven't updated on the kids or put many pictures of both kids on here recently.  So I thought it was about time!  
As I mentioned in Madelyn's 3 yr. post, she is talking so much.  I love it.  Tells us exactly what she's thinking...all the time.  Theo boy doesn't have a chance to get a word in.  He loves to watch her and does everything she does.  Whether it's dancing at the dinner table (or anywhere else for that matter) or reading books.  He watches her every move and mimics her.  I need to try to get a video of them laughing together.  It's so funny.  If one of them starts, the other one gets going and they can't stop. 
Their newest thing is running up and down the hallway downstairs.  Madelyn will start, then Theo jumps in.  They chase each other.  Yeah...probably not the safest thing to do (sorry mom :) and most parents don't want their kids running in the house, but I love the energy they get out and they have so much fun doing it.  The dogs get into it as well.  
I want to write down these memories so I can remember them and this is my outlet to do just that. Guess you all will get to read about them :)
Hopefully I'll get a video of them dancing on here pretty soon.  They love the song "Happy" by Pharell Williams.   It'll start and I'll see them smile at each other then get their groove on.  
Madelyn had her 3 yr. old checkup at the doctor this past week.  He said she has come a long way since last year.  He was surprised with her chattiness and how social she is.   She has gained 2 pounds since last year, but shot up about 3 inches.  She knows the alphabet, colors, shapes, counts to 20 and tries to go further, knows how many fingers you're holding up.  I'm so proud of how far along she's come.  Ahh...tears.  
Theo will go to the doctor at the beginning of June.  We'll see how he does.  We took him with us to Madelyn's appt. and he loved looking around at everything.  Didn't sit still, of course, never does, but he had fun being there.
