Abel: Talks non stop now! I recently reread their second birthday post and read how he could say words that weren't clear and definitely no sentences. What a change a year makes! He is all boy - loud and active! Belle entertains herself quietly while he continues to run around like a super hero. He is ALL about super heroes now...he doesn't play with cars, trains, trucks, planes or any other "boyish" toy...only super heroes!
Belle: All girl. She occasionally will play with her Disney princess dolls but is far more into playing dress up and cooking. She LOVES dressing up! Her favorite character is Hello Kitty (which is cool because HK was my favorite growing up too) but she likes all girly things: My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Lalaloopsy, Disney Princess, Minnie Mouse, etc. Oh and she got her ears pierced for her birthday - with Hello Kitty earrings! She is so proud :)
They are best friends and worst enemies. They are always either chatting away with each other or arguing - But always talking! It is a joy to watch their bond grow as they can communicate more.
Happy Birthday, Abel & Belle! We are so grateful to be your parents!
