So, what's going on?

Okay, I've been so bad about writing on here. I'm sorry Lacey. I'm going to repent and be better. In my defense I just started a new job. I've already mentioned this previously, that I've been recently hired by Davis School District as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I'm working at West Point Elementary and Syracuse Jr High. Its been a lot of work. It seems that as an educator you donate a lot of time that you don't get paid for. I've put in a lot of time, which Lindy hasn't cared for too much (which is also my excuse for being a bad blogger).
Well, who cares about me, you guys aren't here for me anyway, its my cute kids you want to know about.
So, Sydney is 2 years old now, she is our loving, emotional child. She loves to give mom and dad lots of hugs and kisses. She gets very upset when one of us leaves. She likes to talk to her little sister (as long as Savannah doesn't touch her). Savannah likes to grab things, including her older sisters hair. So, Sydney is in the stage where everything is hers, and if she doesn't get it then she gets very upset ( I mean throw herself down and kick and scream upset). We've been told that the emotional child has a tendency to be the tantrum child as well (feel free to correct me if you feel that I am wrong). Sydney loves Mickey Mouse (and the gang), Little Einstein, Strawberry Shortcake, and Carebears. She knows all the theme songs to these cartoons (at least she tries really hard).
Savannah is 7 months old, she is our big eyed smiley girl. Everyone who sees her mentions her big eyes. She loves to smile and laugh at people. People keep mentioning to us what a happy baby she is. If only they really knew... lol... She has her moments. Anyway, she especially loves to watching Sydney do just about anything. She thinks its all funny. Savannah is starting to get interested in toys; however, she still prefers to have people make silly faces at her. She's in the process of learning how to sit up on her own. She still tends to fall over, but she's getting there. She can roll over on to her belly (which she does everytime we put her to bed). The funny thing is that her tummy isn't her favorite place in the world, but she won't roll back over. We know she can because we've seen her do it before, but she won't do it on a regular basis. We think she be quicker at the walking thing than her older sister. Sydney took forever to roll over and sit up. She didn't start crawling until like 11 months or so. Oh and we've started Savannah on solid foods, she's slowly getting better at eating.
Anyway, that's what's going on with our kids. Pretty boring unless you have kids of your own I suppose. Well, have a good day.
