Cruising along...

The kids are both doing really well.  Micah has adjusted to his hearing aid SO well, as well as his interpreter.  She was really a missing piece that we are so thankful to have.  He still LOVES football, and goes about using his magnetic letters on the fridge to tell us about it most everyday (and occasionally also Ghost Hunters and our local NPR station).  I think the kid is going to be a spelling whiz (like his mother!)

Kyleigh is doing great.  She's got the two year old thing down.   "Me! Me! Me!" is a frequent refrain in our house... as is,  "we don't anything by saying me! What do you say?".  Her new favorite is Mickey Mouse and will request "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally PLEASSSEEEE!"  It's too cute and a little hard to resist.

Here's a quick recap of our fall in pictures, which is what you all come for (I know!)

Oh, it's just been a little while.

I'm a lazy blogger, I admit it.  Time flies!  We have been pretty busy this summer... Visiting lots of zoos!  We've been to Columbus, Toledo, Fort Wayne and South Bend.  Kyleigh got his hearing aid in early June and has been doing really well with it.  He has started talking more since he got it.  He now tries to say 'grandma, grandpa, amber, mandy, home', etc.  It's exciting. He must be trying to keep up with his sister... who is a sassy little chatterbox.  Some of her funny things include "Hi! How you?" "I want some" "Micah, come here!" and many, many others.  She's already started bossing him around and she's not even two. It's crazy! She sure acts like she's two... the fits are crazy already!

My 18 month old wild child!

 Look, ma! No hands!
 Practicing her 'duck face'. She's way cuter than the teenage girls who do the same.
Well, need I comment?
Kyleigh has been walking since 11 months and climbing from shortly after.  We've already decided she'll be the first to go to the ER for a broken something.  She, like her brother, doesn't slow down.  She mostly naps in the car since she gets carted around from place to place for brother.  Maybe she just naps since that's the only time she is slowed down.... Who knows!  She's starting to talk a lot!  She has an endless amount of words... New ones all the time!  Her favorite word is probably 'go', which makes sense!  My favorite word of hers is probably her "hello", which comes out "hew-weh-wo" sometimes.  She's a wanderer outside, which makes keeping her and Micah together impossible.  She usually has her hands full of rocks anytime she's outside. 
Oh, what fun is 1 1/2 years old!
