Sassy Pants

It's hard to believe that we are three weeks into summer! Being at home with the kids has been great! We have been keeping pretty busy with a combo of the pool, playing outside at home, and going to the park and the library. 

Grant was at vacation bible school during the morning last week and at camp with Dad the weekend before, I had a lot of solo time with Sister. She is so full of personality and way more brave than I would like! She'll easily climb to the top of the play sets at the park and at home too. 

She also has been waking up super early-like 6:00 daily and she only naps for an hour and a half. I pushed back her bedtime to 7:30 from 7:00 but until Grant was almost 5 he wasn't up until about 7, slept for almost three hours during nap time and still went to bed between 7:30-8:00. I think Chick has FOMO.

The other thing that is super weird is that when we are outside Hannah hardly acknowledges me but when we are at home she wants me all. the. time. It's hard for me to do anything without her crying at my ankles to be picked up. This is totally different from Grant as well. He has always played pretty well independently.

Hannah also is seeming to get pretty picky at meal times. If she can eat it with a spoon, she's in, otherwise she is pretty picky. I know she's fine and I shouldn't worry, but if it was up to her she would have a diet fully consisting of go-gurt, apple sauce, bars, and fruit snacks. Grant ate everything.

She is talking a lot, but I mostly have no idea what she is saying. I've gotten her single words down like "ice" for "outside" and "DeDe!!!!" for "I really want to go play with DeDe and Greyson, like now!" She also does a great job with manners words like "please" and "thank you" and our names but she says a lot of things that I know means something to her and I have no idea what she is talking about.

Hannah also can open doors now. Yikes. I need to go get a safely lock for the pantry ASAP because, unlike Grant, Hannah will just go and help herself, where as Grant still asks before eating anything. 

It is just so interesting how much Grant and Hannah are different! Same home, same parents, same genes but two very different kids. It will be very interesting to se how her personality continues to develop as she gets older!

  1. Oh man, she sounds so much like Calvin. He loves being outside but the minute we're inside he turns into a fussy boy!
