Andrew laughs

So it has become apparent that this little man loves to laugh. He is ticklish anywhere and everywhere. Last night all I had to do was apply some pressure to any spot on his body...feet, under arm, sides, inner legs, neck....and he would laugh. So cute. This video is from a couple of days ago so I will have to get some more recent footage later.

Galations 5:16

On Sunday Adeline came home talking about "Love, joy, peace" I asked her if she learned about the fruits of the spirit and she said yes. She told me about a song that Miss Jenny taught her. She loves Miss Jenny. We then talked about the fruits of the spirit and started working on the verse. Sure enough the next day she can recite it.

After five years....

....of living in our house we finally put some pictures on this bare wall. Thanks to a very talented and special friend.

Someone is CHUNKY!!!

I always wanted to have a chunky boy. When he gets a little older I am going to teach him the truffle shuffle:)

Bathtime fun.....

Normally bath time is a big deal. I have Adeline in the tub and Andrew in his tub. It seems to work pretty well doing both at the same time. Otherwise if I give Andrew his bath separate Adeline continues to walk in and out of the bathroom bringing in cold air and wanting me to do various things. I feel bad because Adeline doesn't get the dedicated Mommy play time in the tub but she doesn't really seem to mind. Today Daddy was home so both Adeline and Andrew got their own bath times.
Most baths Andrew is dried off with pink towels....but lucky for him we have a few yellow ones.
I haven't been able to capture many crying pictures of Andrew because he really doesn't cry very often. And if he does it is normally while he is eating and he poops his pants. I would cry too. Here is a crying picture of him out of the tub. Something about being cold once I took him out of the towel and put his pj's on.

Andrew is too young to appreciate his room so Adeline has started taking a liking to it. She especially likes the lady characters. I am impressed at how good her memory is and all the characters she knows. This video is of her telling us all of the lady characters names.

This video will probably only be appreciated by true GI JOE fans.

Andrew instantly fell asleep in Angela's arms
Adeline has had a little regression lately wanting to have a pacifier and be held like a baby. The funny thing is that she has no idea how to suck the pacifier. For the first year and a half of her life you rarely saw her without it in her mouth but now she doesn't know how to use it. We took it away last night informing her that she is a big girl now.

My best girlfriend from high school came to visit us yesterday. She made a surprise visit all the way from Maryland. Adeline took right to Angela. I have never seen Adeline take to someone so quickly or affectionately that isn't a blood relative. It doesn't surprise me though Angela has a very sweet, gentle nature about her.

Early Easter Presents

Since this Easter we will be going to both my Mom's and James' parents houses we decided to give Adeline her gifts early. We decided against candy since she will be getting enough of that this weekend. The other day Adeline said that she wanted a crown so...we got the princess a crown.

Andrew smiles

Andrew and Daddy were watching the very sad game of MSU in the NCAA championship. Even though they were losing, Andrew didn't seem to mind.

Adeline reading Cinderella

Adeline was reading Cinderella the other day and I wanted to tape her. She wouldn't let me but when I asked if E.T. could tape her she was ok with that. If I was able to tape the beginning of the book then it would be a lot more clear. She knows it word for word. But....I caught her towards the end so just listen carefully.

E.T. also tells her to finish her food and clean up her toys. So far she always listens to him. This obsession might work to my advantage:-)

Two months old

Hard to believe it has already been two months. All of my days seem to just mesh into one big day. This little guy has his Dr. Appt on Monday. I am curious to see how much he weighs now. As you can see he is sporting a very nice double chin. He can be a pretty fussy eater sometimes (ALWAYS going #2 while eats) but there is no question of him getting enough food.

"Maybe I can get an E.T. character? OK? Alright?"

Once Adeline became obsessed with E.T. she then wanted a small figurine like all of her princess characters. in the mail guess what arrived. Aunt Betsey sent an E.T. character just for Adeline. She has been attached to it ever since. Thanks Aunt Betsey for making this little girls day!
