Brooks & Adlyn have a phrase they say quite frequent, and that would be, "New, special". It makes me laugh. Anything new is also pecial (special). Also, if it is new, it is probably from a store, and they will tell you that.
To me, it is along the same lines of, "Big, huge," and "Little, tiny." The two word phrases are great, and they are building upon their words everyday.
Our neighbors got a new, special dog yesterday. The kids are excited! We don't have animals, so the new dog is quite special for us! We get all of the excitement of a dog, and we don't have to take care of it. Perfect, and just the way I want it. It is a 1 1/2 year old chocolate lab named Mocha, or Mo for short. It seems to have a great demeanor thus far, and I'm sure the kids can't wait to dog-sit.
As I reflect on our evening tonight, I realize Brooks & Adlyn are really good buddies. They play well together, and they keep themselves quite entertained. Zach mentioned today that Brooks was calling for Adlyn "Addy" when he was downstairs today and wanting to play. They do like each other's company. To a mom, that is very special!
