We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirndess and call it love.

Fun and the Fair

Our kiddos experienced their first fair. Brett even wore his first pair of boots and wrangler jeans!!! Allison was scared of the sheep, but liked the bunnies and ducks. Our visit was somewhat short lived due to the extreme heat/humidity. Poor little Allison was pouring sweat by the time we left.

Skills, skills, and more skills

My children are very talented... I know I know, how talented can a 6 month and 19 month old be?

Brett's talents:
1. My little man can now sit up without support. He can even wave his arms around a little bit before he falls over.

2. He is consistently saying "Da! Da!" He also loves to hear his own voice and see how loud he can be.

Allison's talents:
1. Allison has recently begun reporting to us after she poops. She waves her hand in front of her nose and says "Phew, Phew." Even more skillful, she has begun telling us BEFORE she poops. I think it may be time for a potty chair.

2. Allison has the greatest talent of all, making her Daddy smile even when he is irritated or trying to be firm. Example: Today he was telling her she needed to sit, not stand on the couch. He even had his finger in her face....and what does she do???? She leans over an kisses him right on the lips. :)
