I decided once a month I will write you guys letters in my blog. I want to be able to share this with you when you guys are older. Especially so you will know to choose your career first before having kids.
I will never NEVER wish you weren't here, I just know I wish I was more financially stable and not going through college and trying to work and daddy working all the time to take care of you guys. Because I regret not being able to spend all my time with you.
Jordan, you have been staying home a lot more lately. I know you love to go to your grandparents, but we want you to spend time with us more. Going to your grandparents once a month or so is fine.
You are obsessed with a game called Fat Princess and Left for Dead. You still love Spongebob. You are very good at video games, better than any kid I've ever seen play. I think maybe when your older, you may want to create video games and I think that's something you and your dad can do as a hobby. Plus if your doing that by high school, there is no limits to what you can accomplish! But of course I want you to be whatever you want and I hope you are successful.
You are still trying to sleep in bed with me and daddy. I wish you would sleep in your bed so that's what we are working on now. Also your not much of eater you always just want to GO GO GO!!!! SO we are trying to get you to slow down and eat. Sometimes I think maybe you have ADHD, but you are a 3, almost 4, year old, so of course you are hyper.
This summer you have been playing on a t-ball team called The Reds. We have gone to my friend Heathers so you could swim and hang out with her sons, Anthony and Javon. Hopefully your having a good summer so far.
I am going to start preschool at home and doing projects each day like teaching you to write your name and write your numbers so you will be prepared for school. I cant afford daycare right now so I have to teach you everything. I'm thinking of homeschooling you guys anyway.
I have goals for you and your sister. My goal for you by the end of July is to be sleeping in your own bed, through the WHOLE night, write your numbers 1-10, and work on your alphabet and writing your name. You are very talented so I know you can do it, and if not we can keep working on the rest for August.
Kamiron, Oh my Kami Kami Kami. You have just turned one this month and you sure are becoming a handful, but it's in a good way. I love seeing you explore everything and touch everything. You are such a mommy's girl and I love it.
You still only have four teeth. You eat EVERYTHING and ANYTHING you can besides fruit which is weird. You are always hungry, I think eating is more fun to you than playing. You always want to play with your brother, but sometimes he's a meanie. Of course I'm always on your side and tell him he has to let you in his room to play too.
You do not really have a favorite cartoon yet, you're not much of a TV watcher. You like Spongebob a little, but that's cause its always on, so you know the theme song.
You're still crawling and not walking yet. You can't stand by yourself yet either. When you're holding on the table or couch, you can stand and walk along the edge.
For the past year you have been the most well-behaved baby ever. You've always slept through the night, never really cried, always good in the bath, would just sit in your bouncy for hours as long as you had some puffs to eat and some juice. But this past week or so, your evil side has been showing.
You are starting to throw toys or sippy cups or whatever is in your hand at the time you get angry. You whine a lot, if I wont pick you up, or do what you want that instant. But its okay cause it's more cute than anything. I think since you had your birthday party last weekend you're like "ohhh, everyone loves me so I can act like this and get attention. But what you don't realize is you have a brother I've already been through this with.
I love you and your my little babydoll! My goal for you, is by the end of July is that you will be walking. That's it. I just want you to learn to walk cause it's so much easier to play outside if you can walk. If not, that's fine cause obviously you just aren't ready yet and you will be when you are.
I love you Kami D, and couldnt have asked for a better daughter. But I am definitely scared for the teenage years.
Do you journal to your kids to keep of record of what they are doing at each stage and so they know what you thought about them as they were growing up?
