Playing around

Kendra's imagination is really starting to take off...

"Mommy's nursing pillow makes a perfect garage for my cars..."
 "Just line them up in a row..."
I love watching her play games of her own creation for hours...

This day came way too fast!  And a month earlier than it did with Kendra!

I set Elliot on his back on the floor and stepped into the kitchen to get Kendra some juice.  When I came out to offer it to her, Elliot was on his stomach!  He's been rolling onto his side for about a week and a half but before this hadn't ever managed to plop himself all the way over to his stomach.

Go Elliot!
Alas, although we pulled out the video camera and took footage for several minutes, he didn't repeat the accomplishment for film.  I'll have to see if we can get him to do it another time.

But since blog posts are dull potatoes with just a story, here's a completely unrelated picture from a little over a month ago that I haven't gotten around to posting yet...

"I was this close..."

 I guess he really isn't going to be a baby forever...

Good old-fashioned FUN

One thing I love about parenting is introducing my children to the world.

I seriously can not wait to watch The Empire Strikes Back with them and watch their minds get blown by the biggest plot twist of ALL TIME.

A while back, that came in the form of Play-Doh.

Because Play-Doh is awesome.
I still remember the time my Dad gave me a set of like 30-40 colors and ohmigosh it was amazing.

  Kendra though it was pretty cool, too.

We actually combined a bit of blue and a bit of hot pink to get this lovely purple--she really got a kick out of that.
We spent a whole morning playing with this stuff, it was pretty good times.

Pretty, pretty, pretty good.

A real stand-up guy

We play this game a lot around here.

And we just can't get enough.

They grow so fast...

Kendra is doing pretty well mastering her ABCs...

Meanwhile, about an hour ago I had Grant pull out the camera because Elliot was being adorable.

But he totally blew us away by laughing for the very first time while we did it!

I'm totally considering this my compensation for him getting up at 2am and 5am every night for the past 4 nights.  Because mothers need their sleep!
