Hunter is very sensitive about having his shirt covering his back in the carseat. Even after it is adjusted he regularly chants, “Shirt not down! Shirt not down!”

On the upside, he is asking many thoughtful questions about how things work, which is new.

Katya hit several milestones, including swearing. She called a parent “shitpants.”  She also started washing her own hair, which is a considerable task.

For his part, Hunter started taking showers, because the tub leaked and needs to be replaced. He insists that it is frightening and he does not like it, until the moment the spray hits him, and then he laughs hysterically the whole time. This child is very shower ticklish.
