44 Months

I'm pitifully behind on this update. I'm thinking very seriously about changing the way I update the kids. Does anyone really care when they are 412 months old? Maybe just a recap monthly? It's not drastically different, but we'll see...
I'm also going to try and post more of the little things they do and say more regularly, so I don't forget as much.

ANYHOW. 44 months was definitely about dressing up and superheroes. Spiderman specifically, but not exclusively. It all started with little pirate bandanas that become makeshift capes, and then I made capes, and then the Spiderman outfits (I did not make). Which were worn 24/7 starting at the end of September. And yes, we did have two pairs (4 pairs) as washing them became an issue.
We considered getting fancier costumes to wear for Halloween, but for me, having them wear the same outfits they'd been loving for weeks already, felt more authentic. The great thing about being 3 is just loving something so much you want to wear it, play with it, eat it, watch it every day. They have very strong feelings on what to wear, what to eat (or not eat), what to play, when to sleep, lights, toys, what they will or will not do, each other, and their feelings (I'm mad!). This can be a bit trying at times (exasperating), but luckily it's also easy to laugh with/at them!

And now on to November...

Are those not just the best pictures?! Capturing who they are and their fun little lives. Wonderful!
I agree...as the kids get older, the stats and info changes, no longer is it about how old, weight,how many teeth....more of sayings, antics, survival...being cute keeps preschoolers alive. Oops! Did I write that? Say that outloud? Well....there's truth there...in our house anyway!:)
W was talking about the boys the other day. We'll have to plan a soonish playdate.

I love the picture of the two spidermans sitting side by side. The girls had plans to be a princess and a ballerina for Halloween and then we pulled out the winter clothes bin and found the costumes from last year and they wanted to be a butterfly and a dinosaur. Z was so cute practicing her ROAR. Well the morning of Halloween Z wakes up and decides that she wants to be Cinderella for school just like her good friend R (who incidently decided she wasn't dressing up at all). Well I don't have any idea what to do for a Cinderella costume but no mind because Z does. She gets blue leggings, a blue dress and her blue shoes out and voila she is Cinderella.
