I am in complete amazement everyday to hear what words/sentences that come out of the twins' tiny little voices. Yesterday, Cameryn said, "I want some more". Wow! The day before that Maddison saw a baby who was crying and she looked at me and said, "That baby is crying" I am in awe of this new vocabulary or rather them putting it all together to form sentences. They are also in love with letters. I'm telling you, they can identify almost all of the alphabet and can either say it or point the letter out of your request. Cameryn has really always had an interest for letters and print ever since she was 6 or 7 months old. She still remains my book lover too. Their favorite books are, "The Birthday Monsters" and "It's Spring". I love reading books to them while they anticipate key words that they like. The excitement in their eyes and bodies is like a breath of fresh air. This is the part I love the most...teaching them! Coloring is another favorite hobby of Cameryn's. She is starting to make circles and colorful lines. Today she drew a "tree" I didn't know it was a tree, but she was pointing at a particular design and saying "tree", and in a sense I could see the tree from an almost 2 year old's perspective. Maddison is quite active and loves to balance on the bounce and spin zebra's saddle while standing up. Although it makes me nervous, I know she is going to be our little gymnast for sure. My mom is doing better and is at home, although still in pain from her surgery. She is up and doing laundry and going up and down the steps. I know she is going to fight this nasty disease. She starts her second cycle of chemo this Wednesday and she is starting to lose her hair little by little. She is excited to get to have a few wigs for some cute do's. This past Wednesday I went to have 3 biopsies done for my lovely skin. I am sure most of you know I have had several surgeries to remove melanoma skin cancer in the past, and I am pretty sure I have it again. Luckily I usually catch them pretty quick so I typically just have to have surgery to remove it without any other measures. Sorry for the very long blog, but I had lots to say! :) Here are some pics from the park on Friday (it was so beautiful) Then, Jeff and I went out on Saturday night for one of his friend's 30th bday. I had a really good time...perhaps a little too good of a time. I sure paid for it today though. It's been about 3 years since I have had that much to drink. Enjoy the pics!
