things to remember...

Caleb, after being told that screaming is using an "outside voice," has been asking to go outside and scream. I let him stand outside the kitchen door and scream for a minute, then he knocks at the door and politely asks to come back in.

Caleb and I were calling Abby our "sweet potato" this afternoon as we fed her sweet potatoes, so Caleb asked for a name too. He's our sour pickle.

Caleb is obsessed with playgrounds again and has newly discovered courage for the "big slide."

Abby loves to snuggle up against me and suck her thumb and twirl her hand in my hair...I've hardly experienced anything sweeter.

a fat lip

Poor Caleb bit the dust this morning on our front porch. There were lots of blood and tears involved, but thankfully all it took was a popsicle to remedy the situation!

Our sweetest boy

What a face!

I cannot look at this picture without laughing out loud! Abby's personality has definitely been coming out a lot over the past couple weeks, and she's developed this terrible hilarious facial expression. I told her that nobody else could make a face like this and actually look cute. She "talks" all the time and is obsessed with her tongue. She's always sticking it out and saying "lalala" or "blah blah blah." I think she's going to have a little fire in her personality. She's a super happy baby but gets very upset if something gets taken away or her needs are not attended to in a timely fashion. Enjoy the're probably going to want to make it your wallpaper for a good laugh throughout the day.
