Kid Update

I know-its been forever since I've done an official update on my kids and its long over due. I am constantly thinking of the little things they've been doing and telling myself I need to record it before I forget it. So here it goes.

I'll start with Miss Cambree. She is officially reading. She is doing amazing in school. I am so proud of her. Well that is, beside the hair cutting incident. Yep- she cut another girls' hair at school. Proud moment for me ;) She said they are good friends and she's not sure why she did it...not a good day in the Allen house. She was star student last week and decorated her own poster all by herself. She's one talented little girl. She can almost do a full back walk over by herself. She performed in her first play last week and did amazing in front of everyone. Her dance moves are more and more amazing. I still can't figure out where she gets it. She is such a little model. I can't get over how gorgeous she is. I know I am biased but she is a very pretty little girl.

Mr. Ridge. Ridge officially knows all his alphabet and sounds and can write his full name. We are still trying to figure out if he's left handed or right handed. He constantly is switching hands. He's going through a phase of not wanting to eat ANYTHING. Drives me CRAZY!! We put waffles in front of him and he freaked out. He even threw it all up when we made him try it. But its anything. He is always hungry until you actually give him his food and if he doesn't want to try it-he's amazingly no longer hungry. He is huge into break dancing right now. Again I am not sure where he gets his moves but its hilarious. He did his first primary presentation a little ways back and he was great. No nerves at all. A natural performer. He is in the phase of also asking for EVERYTHING for his birthday or Christmas. It could be a toy he sees another kid has, or a commercial or anything. At least he'll be easy to please come Christmas morning....right? He is our straight and narrow boy. Sometimes we'll slip and say 'stupid' and quickly chimes in, you're not supposed to say that. Or if we sneeze into our hands, he will correct you and say you're supposed to sneeze into your elbow. Quite funny.

Miss Brecklynn. Oh Miss Brecklynn. What a challenge she is right now. Love her to death but she is living the 'terrible two' title to the fullest. She is a natural bully to her siblings. For no reason at all she will walk up and punch Ridge or pull Cambree's hair. My mom recently took her for a week and I cannot tell you the difference it was. There wasn't nearly the amount of fighting or whining or problems. She is into everything!! She loves to do hair so she is always in my bathroom getting into trouble with lotion, lipstick or whatever she so happens to find. She gets away for 2 seconds and she's done so much. She throws fits about EVERYTHING and No is her new favorite word. But on a happier note, she's starting to come out of her shy shell a lot more. She can count to 20 and is close to counting to 30. She can pick out her name. She sings her alphabet and jingle bells and twinkle twinkle little star all the time. She loves to dance with her siblings. She is a coloring fool. She loves to color all the time and pretend to write. I think she watches Cambree too much :). Should be fun to see her this Christmas season-that's for sure.

And last but not least my little Brielle. I just wrote a short update on her just recently so there's not much to add. But she is 14 pounds. She loves table food and not baby food. She's fully crawling everywhere and its hilarious to watch. She is still the happiest baby and shares the biggest smiles all the time. She still looks 100% like joke. But I love her to death.

So there's the update on all the kiddos. I took their Christmas pics this year. I have a lot to learn still, especially with editing but at least I got a couple. 4 kids are hard to take pictures of but so worth it!
