New stages

What can I say? Everyone knows how silly our kids are, and the laughs just keep coming! Isaiah's been doing his own thing as of late, walking around the house saying "what's that" to everything he sees, or practicing saying his name. It's fun to watch him attempt to run since he's just mastered walking recently, but he's trying. His favorite shows don't seem to hold his interest much, as he's more content with his ability to walk and get into stuff! We thought he'd be Makenna's little shadow, following her wherever she would go, but that's not the case. In fact, she seems to always follow him around! Maybe it's because he can get into stuff we previously told her not to, and since it's his "first offense," she can't get in trouble either? We can't call it! There are times when they're able to play together peacefully, but most of the time, Zae likes to do his own thing. As long as they're not fighting, life is good!

Makenna is in her "repeat what I hear" phase, so you know Enz & I have to bite our tongues every now and then! Makenna has already dropped a couple of undesired four letter words, so we really need to be mindful of what we say. The good part of her new phase is that she's learning a lot, and learning it fast! She can finally say her own name, when previously she had trouble putting the three syllables together. We would practice with her, "Ma-ke-na," and she was able to say each part individually without any problems. But when we tried to get her to put them together, she just couldn't do it, so she would just say "Kenna." Watching Makenna, we can almost see her brain at work, so to speak. We can see what piques her curiosity, what she's interested in and what she doesn't care for. She's at the stage where she's able to communicate more, of course with the occasional tantrum thrown in for good measure! Aside from that, it's hard to believe that she's a week shy of hitting the two-year mark! I can say it until I'm blue in the face, but seriously, where did the time go???
