The year is off to a great start! Hunter has started saying a ton of words, he is such a quick learner. He went to a RompnRoll class last week with other children his age while Allie and her friend did an art class there. Hunter impressed the other mom's with his vocabulary. He was running around picking up the big balls and yelling 'BALL!!' and when the instructor asked us to clean up the blocks and toys he knew what to do and picked up the blocks and was saying 'UP' and putting them in their basket. He has learned a lot from his big sister.
His vocabulary consists of the following words: Mama, Dada, Gigi (he is still shy about saying this one but we have heard it at least 3 times) duck, ball, dog, up, nite nite, poop, bye bye, nana (banana) and most recently he has learned to say yes. We ask him if he has a poop and he will touch his diaper and say poop. We ask if he wants to eat or have milk and he will say yes!
We registered Allie for official preschool today. It starts in the fall and we are hoping that she will get in-apparently it is very hard to get a spot because they only have 2 classes and 14 kids per class. We are members of the church so we do have a priority over members of the community however the children in the 3 year old class have higher priority and will more than likely want to continue with the 4 year old class next year...so we'll see. The class is three days per week 9:30-2:30 which would be perfect and allow for the youngest 2 to have playtime at home and lunch and nap before having to go pick up Allie. We find out in 2 weeks if we were able to secure a spot.
