Caden starting crawling just after he turned one. He seems like he may start walking soon as well. He has been working on a lot of teeth coming through. He drools like a bulldog. He has a few new words like ball, and fish. He also likes to mimic animal noises. For some reason he's often in a bad mood after a nap and he hates getting his diaper changed all of the sudden. He loves that he can crawl and he has started making a mess wherever he goes. He is a sweetie and is super kissable.
Bennett has been entertaining himself much better lately while Alexa is at school. He also is suddenly super clingy and doesn't want to go to preschool or play at his friends. It has been tricky. I'm hoping he grows out of it quickly. He learned the words "Chinese" and "gymnastics" right at about the same time. So every Wednesday he asks, "Are we going to Chinese today?" Alexa has started sleeping in the other twin bed in his room. They are doing great. Bennett has been sleeping much better also because he doesn't nap anymore.
Alexa and Bennett were sad to say goodbye to cousins Dillon and Lucy who moved back to Mesa. Alexa enjoys school but I think she gets burnt out with the full day and all the homework. She hasn't been as excited about riding her bike to school lately so we've been driving her a lot. She loves having playdates with her friends. She has also been into coloring a drawing more lately.
Steve and I finally got a new mattress this month, we were past due.
We celebrated 5 October birthdays this month.
