More Pictures Posted!!

The girls started Pre-School last week. Today was the first day that they didn't have any problems going in; coincidentally it was also the same day that they first wore their uniforms.

They seem to be enjoying school, but Mommy and Daddy are having issues with worrying. This is the first time we've left them with people we don't know well. On top of that, this is a brand new school.

On the plus side, the teachers say that we have very smart kids. We definitely have to agree. :-)

Other things that have been going on:

Zella has been a Mommy's girl the past couple of months. Zella does not let Daddy help her if she can have Mommy instead. From what we have read, this is just a phase and one day she will be a Daddy's girl.

We took a vacation, and went to Colorado to visit Dustin's Aunt & Uncle. We had a great visit, and the girls loved seeing the mountains, and especially the SNOW! We have more pictures that Grandpa took, and will post them soon.

Their vocabulary has grown exponentially since we got back from our vacation. They can and will repeat anything and everything they hear. They'll even surprise you that they know what something is called, or what they are thinking.

Lila REALLY enjoys Dancing. She loves to do a little dance kind of like a cross between old square dancing and a Irish jig. I know, hard to imagine, I'm sure, but it's even harder to describe. It's her own dance. It's "The Lila Dance" (at least she doesn't dance like her Daddy) :-)

Zella also enjoys Dancing. She does more of a "Jump Around" style Dance :-0 (Jump, Jump, Jump Around!)

They do the best Lion/Dinosaur/Bear roar impression. Not sure how to imitate it with words, so I won't try. Just ask sometime when they are around :-)

I guess that's about it. Somehow, it's already midnight. Again. Time is definitely passing too fast.

ABC's

The girls are doing well, learning very fast now. They are now singing the ABC song on their own (of course, not when we ask them to in front of strangers.) They are repeating most words that we say and even arguing with each other over pronunciations (like they did tonight at the end of dinner over their names).

This seems like the hardest stage thus far (behavior wise.) I could defintely use some pointers if anyone has any for 2 two year olds. They seem to enjoy getting into trouble and pushing the limits we have set for them. They also steal toys from each other almost all the time and cause each other to cry. But, as hard as it is, they bring so much joy into our lives and we are so glad that God chose us to be their parents.

We just posted more pics, including Easter pics, so check them out!!
