The art of conversation ... HEWWO??

I felt it was my parental duty to show my kids what a "real" phone looks like.  And this is what they had to say.

Laughing and crying

It's pretty rare that I'm able to smile or laugh when my kids are crying.  My mommy instinct checks into high gear and I try my hardest to smooth things over for them.

Over the last few days, both Malina and Luke have come down with a cold.  Luke got hit with a triple whammy: major teething + a low grade fever from an MMR vaccine + Malina's cold = House of Pain.

But today, while in the car, amidst all the crying and whining, I laughed out loud when this song came on the radio.

We love the park!!

Now that the weather is starting to get better, we've been venturing out to the park almost everyday this week.  Hurray!

As you know, I love taking pictures of our growing, beautiful kids.  Most of the time I take pictures of the kids separately because I can never get them to do the same thing at the same time (unless you consider looking off in different directions, doing the same thing at the same time).  

Well, not today!!  This shot was like a miracle for me...  getting both kids to actually look at the camera AND smile AT THE SAME TIME??  You might be seeing this picture on our Christmas card!  :)

Hilton Head preview

We had a wonderful time down in Hilton Head!  And the kids were amazing in the car* (thank you Malina and Luke for being total saints!).  Here is a little video of what happens after about the 8th hour or so -- everyone goes a little bonkers, even the little guy.

*It's a 14 hour drive, in case you're curious.

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Malina!!

Malina, you are THREE years old!!  We love you so much!!

A picture is worth a thousand words

So what about these videos?

I commend Luke for his determination to stand up.

A moment of sibling rivalry that had me laughing behind the camera.

There are no words for this video...
