Our boy E is growing so fast! At 21 months he is full of mischief and has no fear! He has had more falls, bumps scrapes etc. It doesn't help that his favorite thing is to climb things and jump off of them! I think that in January we're going to enroll him in gymnastics because he needs an outlet for his acrobatic abilities. This is perhaps our favorite Emersonism even though its not a word or phrase he uses. When we give each other a thumbs up this is what E does- he sticks his two pointer fingers up. Its hilarious and so cute!

E has definately entered the terrible twos. He knows what he wants when he wants it which is now. Most of the time he does well sharing but has figured out that he can go after his sister. We are trying to discourage the fights but it goes both ways, he also has enough words that he can tell on Aly when she hits him or takes things away so she's not able to get away with as much. Emerson calls Alyssa "Ada" which he usually yells and puts both his hands on the sides of his cheeks. He loves to give her hugs and kisses but doesn't like to be bossed around as much as he use to. His favorite books right now are Brown Bear, Polar Bear and Panda Bear by Eric Carl. We also read about animals, cars, trucks, and construction equipment. Emerson LOVES little Einsteins about the a group of kids that go on adventures. I really like this series since they have a classical piece of music, art and history in each adventure. He is also a fan of Diego, Dora and Mickey Mouse.
