A Flash (or a Twinkle) from the Past

I came across this video of Claudia singing "Twinkle, Twinkle" at 2 years old. It's hard to remember her at this age...I'm encouraged to take more videos! Enjoy!

One Month Old!

Sam is a month old already, and what a great baby he is. I know life will probably get more difficult as he becomes less of a sleepyhead and then, eventually, mobile (yikes). But for now, the transition to 3 has been great. Thank the Lord Sam is a good baby! Here are some pics from our photo session...






And here's a look at our other kids at 1-2 months old for the sake of comparison...

Most people comment that Sam looks just like Jake, but I definitely see some resemblance to Claudia too. We love our newest addition!

Just had to document this...

Jake loves to dress himself in the morning, and he loves to pick out his clothes the night before. Normally, he just sets them in a pile all ready to go, so that at 6:30am, he can jump out of bed and jump right into his chosen dirt biking or superhero shirt... The other night, however, when I went in to check on him before going to bed myself, I found he had taken some extra care in setting out his clothes for the next day...notice that even his socks are hanging under the window. I cracked up. And then gave him an extra kiss. And then went to get the camera.

Jake the Jokester

Jake and Claudia enjoy making up "jokes" sometimes - I use the term loosely. Here's Jake's best attempt at a knock-knock joke just a few days after Sam was born.

Jake: Knock Knock
Me: Who's there?
Jake: Glad
Me: Glad who?
Jake: Aren't you glad you're not pregnant anymore?

Guess I mentioned my feelings on this subject a few times!
