Learning ABCs and Counting

I've been so impressed with Evelyn and Sylvia's learning abilities lately. Not only can they count to 10, often they go to 12, 13, 14, 15. Once Sylvia counted to 16!

As for the alphabet, somedays they can get through half of the song, or skip some of the middle. They always can say up to H. And, what's really great, is they know by sight (and out of order) ALL of the letters except J, K, Q, U, V, W, X. Yes, they know Y and start this weird arm jerking thing and yell YO, YO, YO. It's almost like they are trying to rap, but they are referring to a yo, yo. So funny.

Pretty impressive for 2 years 3 months. Well, at least, I think it's impressive.

Love to Bounce

Ever since our friends had the party with the bounce house, the girls are crazy bouncers. Angela and I took them to a place with a ton of bounce houses, so they bounced for an hour. Then, I discovered the Rody Horse and had to get one! They are still bouncing, especially Sylvia. For the first time ever, they want to play with Rody or tinkertoys BEFORE eating dinner. That's a big deal.
