Chloe can now kiss. I don't mean she blows kisses, she actually kisses. If you ask her for a kiss, she opens her mouth and leans right now. She then usually follows up by clapping. It's enough to make me give her anything she wants - thankfully she can't yet ask for anything.
Chloe also got a nasty diaper rash. We went to the doctors. Chloe had a blast crawling all over the office in her diaper:
Evan didn't have quite as much fun but he still hung in there:
We went back to New Jersey this past weekend since my niece was the lead in a musical (and she was fabulous). While we were there Evan, Chloe, and I had a chance to catch up with old friends:
I finally got my hair cut. And after living in many different places and trying out many different hair stylists, I can't tell you how awesome it is to be close enough to the hair dresser who did my hair for almost 20 years before I moved to Texas. She is truly an artist:
As Chloe becomes her own person more and more Evan becomes a little more jealous and acts out... mostly by pushing his sister down. He now puts himself in time out and runs there while laughing. I used to say that when Chloe got big enough I would look the other way and let her get 2 hits in... we're now up to 3 hits. I'm afraid the number will just increase.
Chloe is still not walking but keeps taking a step or two each day. She is talking more than Evan did at this age.
Evan made a friend - a little boy who lives just down the street who will turn 3 in September. He has a little sister who is 7 months old. Evan is quite smitten with Xavier and asks to see him a couple times a week (we've had 2 play dates with him).
No matter how organized I try to be I'm still always behind... and that seems to be as good as it gets.
