Rolling over

We've been remiss in posting - but things are going crazy. Owen's been sick several times since he started in day care. Combine that with the hectic holiday season and when morning comes, all we want to do is roll over and go back to sleep.

It appears Lily has been caught up in it too. Yesterday, after taking her bath (she loves the water), I put her down on her stomach. Within seconds she was on her back!

Then we have to play in the frosting...

How to eat your birthday cupcake...


Step 1 - pick up cupcake.
Step 2 - stuff entire cupcake into mouth, somehow ONLY getting the frosting off the top...
Step 3 - repeat step 2 until all the frosting is eaten or on your chin.
Step 4 - run around like sugar-wired kids tend to do...

Happy Birthday Owen!

Wow, it's been 2 years already. I'm stunned and amazed at how time flies. A quick list of things that we've learned lately:
1. You should always wrap presents for 2 years olds in tissue paper. It's HILARIOUS to watch them unwrap it.
2. Owen had to pick EVERY last piece of the paper and tape off the packaging. Hmm, does he get that from Dad or from Mom?
3. He's using his fork and his spoons much better these days. Not to say that the fingers don't get a work out as well, but he is really more coordinated when he feeds himself.
4. Of course, by the end of the meal, he still needs a good hosing-off...
5. He loves to play with bouncy balls of all sizes - and luckily, we've mostly trained him to NOT throw them in the house. We have to ROLL them in the house...
6. No matter what time we put him to bed, he wakes up between 5:15 and 5:30! Good thing I'm now a morning person.
7. He's a happy little sausage - he just got 4 teeth in at once, and was still giggly and laughing!
8. Goldfish (the little cracker kind) are addictive.
9. Ran out of stuff to list - time for some pictures!
