This afternoon I fell asleep on the couch while the kids were napping. I woke up to hear them laughing and talking upstairs--this is what I found when I got up there. Audrey had somehow climbed in the crib and they were having a great time. She told me, "A is for Audrey and C is for Clark!" You can't tell because he is wearing it FreshPrince style but that's a Cubs hat.

Focus, Mom.

Last night as we were getting ready for bath, Audrey said, "Mom is the water hotsy-totsy or not?" As Shannon's suspected ADD kicked in, she reportedly didn't hear the question. So Audrey repeated, "Mom. Focus. Is the water hotsy-totsy or not?"

Breaking news!

The Clarkster has just taken eight steps in a row! He has been "technically" able to walk for a few weeks now but has been a big scaredy cat and hasn't taken more than 2 or 3 steps at a time. Just a few minutes ago after nap he was standing forever, so I held up a ball in front of him and there he went! Who knows how long he would have kept walking, but he snatched the ball out of my hand and promptly sat down to hurl it, crawl after it, and throw it again.

Talking all of a sudden...

This week Clark has added several words to his list... "Audrey" "Brown Bear" and "Night Night." He is still obsessed with Brown Bear and throwing balls. all day long.

Bike Trip/Climbing

Audrey as she prepares for a bike ride with mom. Clark has been climbing on any and everything that he can get to. He's resourceful as he pushes Audrey's booster to the chair, climbs into the chair, and then climbs on the table. Maybe Jacob will teach him so techniques after he gets back from his summer-long climbing trip.

Weezer fan

The past couple times that Audrey has ridden in my car, she has asked for daddy's CD. "You know the one that says My name is Jonah." For those of who don't get it, the first song on Weezer's blue CD is "My name is Jonas." I'm pretty sure that I have the coolest daughter of all time. She loves going to Baylor basketball, watching baseball, and now loves Weezer. Except for a love for Cinderella, she's like a little Josh but way cuter.

Another cute thing she says when we have to speak harshly after disobeying (To the grandparents-this does actually happen). "Mom you hurt my feelings. You spoke ugly to me."
