    LOL! I thought I posted here... Oh well! Due date Aug 25. Hoping baby comes a bit early, but not too much (Between the 13-21 would be nice). As much as it was nice that Reed and Leo were 2w2d and 3w early, they were a LOT more work than Miss Ivy who came on her due date!

    In the meantime, Ivy got to spend a whole bunch of time with her 3yo cousin (2months older than Ivy), and I was simply astounded at how different they were in level of development - vocabulary, grammar, dexterity, concentration, comprehension). I know Ivy is very precocious, but this really amazed me. Ivy was way more interested in playing with Catherine's 7yo brother (and he with her) because they were absolutely on the same wavelength in terms of imaginative games, climbing trees, playing with the toy trucks in the planters, cleaning up after themselves with the broom (putting spilled dirt back in the planters without being asked), etc... It was really interesting to me. I guess I know she is advanced, but it never struck me just how much until I saw them together. (She has been accepted in the 3.5-5yo preschool that NEVER accepts kids early, simply because she has the same teacher in the parent-tot class now and the teacher refuses to believe that Ivy just turned 3yo! Ivy and I were doing some needle felting the other day that the teacher has trouble doing with her 5yos!


    As for Leo, his vocabulary has taken another big jump! Very nice to see him making himself understood with some partially comprehensible words. He still lets Ivy do most of his talking for him (Leo wants ... ), but he is letting us know that he wants a hug and kiss before bed, his sippy cup, which shirt, and that he wants the door closed at bed time (sometimes to his sister's dismay!). Nice to see him become his own little person!

    Catherine is a typical 3yo girl (Nice kid too!), and Brian (7yo) is a keen smarty-pants in grade 2 but is a great kid. I think we are going to have our hands full! I just hope that having friends her age never becomes a problem.

    Thanks for the update Sarah! Ivy does sound advanced- congrats on her getting accepted into the preschool!! Out of curiosity, what was her little cousin doing in the time that Ivy and the older cousin were playing?
    Leo looks so cute in grandma's siggy pic. Love all the gear they are wearing!!!
    Do you know if it's going to be a boy or a girl?

    I just hope that having friends her age never becomes a problem.
    Having friends at all is what you want I think. Having friends of all ages is just fine. We find different qualities to admire in people of all ages. Some rare souls only make friends through reading books. My sister was one of those. Other kids have imaginary friends and speak imaginary languages. Not bad mind you, but a bit sad I think if it is at the expense of human interaction.

    This is true later on in life as well. A great aunt of mine lived to age 101. As she aged she continued to be a busy woman and enjoyed activities with older people as well as much younger folks. She attended meetings and clubs at the local university, was very involved with her grandchildren, was informed about current events, enjoyed the symphony and theater, even went on political rallies with the younger crowd. I think this is why she had a long and fulfilling life! To top it off, she was legally blind for decades, yet enjoyed foreign travel immensely. I have no worries about Miss ivy!

    Asha - I'm not sure what Catherine was doing - basically just ignoring them and going from one activity to the next to the next and generally getting into things that she wasn't supposed to. She didn't want to do one thing for any length of time, whereas Ivy and Brian sat and played tractors for HOURS! Then were super excited to go for a ride on the side-by-side (quad with a bench seat). Catherine couldn't care less about the trucks and adventure and certainly didn't like climbing and searching through the trees looking for lady bugs and other beetles and ants.
