So we made it through the holidays and the new year. We've even celebrated Kathryn's 2nd birthday already! And she is proving to be a big girl, not only in height but also attitude.
Although we tried to give up papi to Santa without success, just a few weeks later she did it on her own terms. Last Sunday I forgot to take it to church, but she was so exhausted that she fell asleep on the way home. Then that night she told me "papi Santa" and laid down on her pillow and went to sleep. She did ask about it a couple times over the next few nights, but after reminding her that Santa had it she would go to sleep. So after going "cold turkey" we don't have to worry about papi anymore.
Kathryn is getting to be more talkative these days. One thing that I think is really cute is that she says "otay". And she loves to sing "Itsy, Bitsy Spider" and her "ABCs".
We are getting ready to celebrate Mikhael's 4th birthday. I'm sure that I will have some stories to share about him over the next month.
