Big Brother

Caleb is so sweet with Gillian. This picture shows that soft side of him. Caleb calls gillian "my baby" and wants to guide her around and help her all the time. Although gillian is very independent, she really loves her big brother and best friend.

Caleb Sings.....sort of

Today I heard what I thought was crying in the backyard. When I looked out the window, I saw Caleb in the sandbox playing his version of a concert to some of his make believe fans. By the time I got the camera the show was almost over. When he noticed me taping him, he threw himself into concert mode again. Watch both videos. The second one is hysterical. What in the world is he saying???? Well, When I interviewed the star after his performance he told me that he was singing, "Carlee, I lub (love) you foreber and eber. Lightning McQueen and Sally I lub you foreber and eber too." What a crack up!

Here's a picture of sweet Gillian. She is 19 months old now and amazing us everyday with new things, words and expressions. She is starting to scream a very high pitched sound when Caleb teases her which is a lot of the time and then she swings her arms at Caleb when he is trying to hug her which is the rest of the time. We call her "Miss Independence". Her favorite words right now are "up, (like get up and get me something), we dance, no no, and outside." She loves to wear dresses and "pretty" clothes as she calls them. We are still waiting for her hair to come in. We love our baby girl!

Rainy Day Fun

O.K. so a few weeks ago we had a lot of rain. I guess my boys were bored because they thought it would be a good idea to give Carlee a bath since she was already wet. What a sight! Thank goodness it was a warm rain. By the time it was over, Caleb was pretty much naked. As his clothes got wet, he would lose them. I'll spare you the picture but you get the idea.
