Today, they were playing some kind of Christmas music for the kids. They brought the kids out and there were about 15 nannies… Aaron took this video of Lena. 😉 Dana’s mom, especially, you will like this one!
We taught Lena some colors today. Have we told you that they don’t bring us Ilya for about the first half hour? That is why we always have more Lena photos and videos. She is saying “black” but she is so quiet!
Lena seems to pay good attention to detail. You can hear how impressed I am in this video. And not to worry, she intentionally dumped the markers everywhere later. She is not always this organized.
A lot of people have asked us if they’re brother and sister… our response was “not yet!” They may not be brother and sister biologically but they certainly act like it. Ilya always wants what Lena has. And Lena knows how to push his buttons. Here she is knocking over the blocks he set up and he is yelling at her.
I am feeling pretty tired after today’s visit. We were talking about how we feel like we’re trying to watch these two in a museum. The nannies yell at them if they get too loud. They tell Ilya not to climb on the blocks. And we try to keep everything, including the kids very clean. Hard with markers, crackers and juice. Any ideas on activities we can do which will remain quiet and not too messy?
