Well, if your day wasn't bright already, I have a few things that will make you smile. The first is the SWEETEST video I have EVER seen! It is a video of two sea otters holding hands... don't tune out too soon on the video, the sweetest part is at the end! And your second treat... my new favorite picture of Luke! I hope this brightens your day!

Two year olds are very honest. They let there true feelings show, and they will always tell you what they are thinking. Claire is one of these two year olds. Yesterday it was very humid out, so I left my hair wavy. I honestly thought it looked fine, I don't prefer to do my hair this way, but why fight with the weather? Well, last night I was sitting on the couch and Claire came running in the room with my brush... she handed it to me and said "here Mommy, brush your hair, it looks yucky." No lie, those words came out of her mouth. I was amazed... mostly because she had the reasoning capability to look at me and realize that I needed help! What a sweet little girl.

I once again have not posted in a while. I really don't have any cute kid stories to blog about. It seems like the kids are my main topic of blogging. Let's change things up... lately I have really loved listening to my ipod. I think it is somewhat of an escape for me. Don't worry, I don't have my ear buds in unless the kids are asleep. I love to listen at night when I can't fall asleep. I love to listen when I am on the treadmill. I love to listen when I work on a sudoku puzzle. My favorite time to listen is when I am cleaning. Anyway... Do you have an ipod? If not, you should get one. What do you listen to? What do you do when you are listening?
Here is a list of my favorites from my current playlist:
  • Sound of pulling heaven down by Blue October
  • You make me smile by Blue October
  • What if you by Joshua Radin
  • Winter by Joshua Radin
  • Saeglopur by Sigur Ros
  • Hey there Delilah by The Plain White T's

Of course there is more, but if I went on and on you would stop reading. You should really check out Joshua Radin, his stuff is great. If you watch Scrubs, you have probably heard him before. Also, check out Sigur Ros (i linked it in my playlist). They are from Iceland... very cool stuff!Anyway, I really do want to know what is on your playlist... I'm always looking for new music! So in a way, I guess I am kind of "tagging" you...

a list

So, I haven't blogged in a week. I really haven't had much to write about. We had a great time with my parents, we were all sad to see them go. Here is a laundry list of things that have been going on with us:

  • I think that Claire has officially come into the "terrible two's" stage. She is wearing me out... we have never had discipline issues with her, and now all of a sudden it is necessary. Please pray for my sanity.

  • Luke is getting two new teeth!

  • I sold 2 bags last week!!!

See, I told you... not much is going on. Here are a few recent pictures...

Claire LOVES to smell flowers, even if they are just dandelions!

Luke played so hard that he fell asleep in his swing!

Nine Months?

Can you believe that Luke is nine months old? I can't! He had his nine month check up yesterday. He weighed 23 pounds and was 31 inches long! WOW! Claire only has him beat buy 4 pounds. Today he learned how to clap his hands... the cutest thing I have ever seen! He is SO serious about it. He is also cruising all over the furniture and around the whole house with his little car. I really think he will be walking with in weeks!
This video is one that I took of Claire a few days ago. Her new favorite thing is to stand on the fireplace and pretend it is her stage! (ABL taught her that.) She is singing Rock a bye your bear by The Wiggles and Jesus Loves me (the short version).
My parents are coming to visit this weekend, and we are SO excited! I will post pictures next week!
