I hope these two will spend many happy hours doing this throughout their whole childhood.

On the move

Abby is officially no longer safe to leave on the bed to play. We learned this the hard way a couple weeks ago. She's not crawling yet, but she rolls and scoots like crazy now. She's even getting up on her hands and knees, or more accurately hands and feet. It's so exciting to see her learn new things. I thought the newness and excitement wouldn't be the same for me the second time around, but it totally is. And seriously, I cannot get over these beautiful blue eyes!

Holy Spirit flames

Caleb was given these "Holy Spirit flames" during a children's lesson at church in St. Louis, and he still loves to put the headband on and wear it around the house all the time. I'm not sure he's totally grasped the meaning yet, but hopefully that will come. We couldn't resist the opportunity get get some photos with this sweet, "Holy Spirit" clad little boy.

So much love

Caleb tries not to lose any opportunities to love on his Abby sister. I think he was lying flat on top of her in this picture, but she was loving it! I'm always amazed at her ability to put up with his tough love...although she was not very happy when he tried to feed her soap this afternoon.

I mean, could she be any sweeter?

oh dear...

We're not there yet, but this is where we're headed!
Yes, we bought the big boy underwear, and he is SO ready to start potty training. I, however, am not so ready. I think we'll probably start next week when the kids and I get back from my cousin's wedding in Florida.
I know it will be very worth it, but I know that the process will probably be more work than diapers. I also just can't believe my baby is growing up so fast!!

Abby Girl

This is becoming a more familiar scene around here. I hope they'll always be good friends.
P.S. Caleb DOES smile all the time, he just gets very solemn for pictures!!
