My kids. Phew. They are something else. When I tell Kadence that- that she's "something else". She replies emphatically, "NO I NOT. I KADENCE!!" She has been saying the funniest things. The other day, when I was on the phone with her while at work, she hung up on me. Luis called me back to tell me she was pressing buttons on his phone and told him she was "texting mommy". Good Lord. Today, as she played on the computer's keyboard, she informed me that she was checking her email. When she starts saying stuff about Facebook is when I will be taking a long internet vacation!
While Gavin doesn't talk much, he sure knows how to tell you what he wants. We have Netflix instant, through our Wii. We put on Yo Gabba Gabba through it. He knows the difference in the TV remote and the Wii remote. Although he only says, "Go Go" for Yo Gabba Gabba, he will find the correct remote, and lo and behold, the child can *sometimes* get the show on using that remote. My mom can't ever do that. I think it's a fluke when he does it, but still- it freaks me out a bit. He also has no trouble letting you know he's upset, by walking right up to you and pinching the hell out of you. He learned that from Kadence, who frequently pinches him, but at least she doesn't pinch me. She didn't share with Gavin that you should only pinch other kids when adults aren't looking. It took me a while to figure out that he learned this technique of pinching from her!
I can only imagine what bringing a 3rd child into this mix is going to be like.I already feel sorry for him or her. Speaking of baby 3, t-minus two weeks until we find out if it is a boy or girl!!! I can't wait, and I'm doing something totally cheesy, but fun and cute even. It's this new thing, well newer than when I had my other two; it's called a "gender reveal party". We will have the anatomy scan, and the tech will write down the gender and put it in an envelope. We then take said envelope to a local bakery, where they will bake a cake for me and put pink or blue frosting in the middle layer of the cake. That evening (cuz I'm not waiting any longer) a few friends/family members will come by, and when we cut into the cake, we will ALL find out the gender together. I think it will be fun this way because with Kadence, we found out she was a girl at our anatomy scan, but didn't tell anyone...not even my e-friends. Then, with Gavin, we honestly didn't find out until he was born. Now with this one, we will find out with our loved ones! My money is on this being a girl. I thought Kadence was a boy and was wrong, thought Gavin was a boy and was right, so I have a 50/50 track record. We'll see soon enough.
