If I only had a dollar for every time we have already been asked if they are twins (even when I don't have them dressed alike). Jason found these cute dresses in Ukraine and had to get them for the girls.
I am not sure what I am so busy at doing but, it seems at the end of the day I have just kept even with life. Obviously, keeping up with the blog isn't happening either.
The girls are learning so much from one another and from Aidan. Alayna is learning to be more independent, self help skills and sharing not only her things but her family (and doing quite well at it) and Dariya is learning to enjoy books, new signs and words daily (she is over 30 signs and 10 spoken words), and be a part of a family. They compliment each other perfectly and truly enjoy being together. I am still amazed at the perfect way God brought us together!
|Oral hygiene is always important especially on dentist visit day! The girls watched Aidan and I get our teeth cleaned and did really well, they go for first dentist visits at the end of the month.|
We have a preschool intake conference Friday morning for the girls. They will start preschool at the end of August at the infant development center where Alayna has gone since she was 3 months old. In October, when Alayna turns 3 we will transition both girls to the school district's preschool. Alayna is so ready for preschool. She is communicating verbally well, singing words to lots of songs, knows her colors, the ABC's and most of the sounds, and can count to ten.
Before we brought Dariya home I was worried about her starting preschool so soon, but I think she is totally ready too. Even though she doesn't have all the "school skills" that Alayna has right now she is a quick learner, enjoys learning and will soar by leaps and bounds.

|Love Alayna striking her best Marilyn Monroe pose....seriously where did this cute girl come from?|
