Again, I know I missed the 3rd quarter recap- whoops! So here it is, better late than never!
Caiden- 4 years (although according to his "back when I was 4 stories" he is already 5.)
LOVE-ING SCHOOL. Last year was an okay year but I think it was hard for him when he only went M and F. This year he goes 5 days a week and absolutely loves it. His teacher, Ms Jane, is amazing. She is so good with him and patient. We love her too.
Counting to 30, counting by 10's, knows all his letters and can write them as well.
Starting to read words- short 3-4 letter words mostly.
Is a Star Wars fanatic!! Seriously, I have no idea where it came from....he hasn't really seen the movies OR watched the Clone Wars cartoon. It started this summer before we went on our vacation and it has grown since then.
Is soooo imaginative. Really, both boys are. They would rather be in the living room making up some game rather than playing with toys in their playroom.
talking, Talking, TALKLING! My how this kid communicates! He has too many words to count and is using them a lot! His initial form of communication....screaming, is still being used most days. We are working with him to "use his words" and he is coming along.
Cars and Elmo- this kid likes toys after all! Lincoln has always really liked hanging out with people. He is so social and mostly just wants to play with you. It wasn't until a few months ago that he started showing any interest in his toys. For now, Hot Wheels and Elmo make him pretty happy. Needless to say, it will be a very Elmo/Hot Wheels/Star Wars Christmas at the Cummings house.
Enjoys music, helping mama clean and anything his brother is doing. Seriously, he wants to be just like Caiden when he grows up ;)
Not only has he been walking since this summer but he is now running and kicking! It is too cute to watch. He gets really excited and I'm pretty sure thinks he is running MUCH faster than he really is.
He likes to tell me when things are hot but he puts the wrong emPHAsis on the wrong syLAble so it comes out HOT MAMA! Yes, of course I tell this story to everyone who will listen- it's incredible.
A recent funny Lincoln Story:
I was awakened at 3:00 in the morning to; "mom....mom...mama.....mama.....". Not in a scared, worried or hurt way. Just very casual. I went into his bedroom and found him sitting up in bed reading books. He had on his Batman pjs with the cape that Velcros to the back. When he saw me, he said, "Mama, help" and held up his cape for me to stick back on his pjs. Basically, he woke up and decided to read books and everything was fine until he realized his cape fell off!
Lesson learned- ALL super heroes still need their moms to get them out of a bind from time to time.
