Monkey See, Monkey Do

For years, Erik has enjoyed teaching Quinlin to do all kinds of things he finds funny. One that he enjoyed the most was asking her to point to her brain... she, of course, would indulge his request by sticking her finger in her nose.

Now he's bringing Max up to speed on his game and his first lesson... stick out your Tongue!

I think one of the most amazing things you can discover having children is seeing parts of you and your spouse in your children. Whether it be physical similarities or shared personality traits and quirks, likes and dislikes, I find it all amazing. To see parts of the person you love so deeply, embedded in the new growing life God gives us.... it seems like a transfer of one love to another. I wonder if that is what God intended when he created DNA and shared genes of the parents? Either way, I'm glad he did. I love looking at my kids, watching them grow, seeing so much of Erik in them. Max's little fingers and toes are exact mini replicas of Erik's. Quinlin loves so many things that Erik loves. Like nothing feeling more at home to them than sitting on our couch, watching a movie, and eating chips.

shoveling snow....

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

-Phyllis Diller

I feel like that today....

My turn!

I was doing Quinlin's hair before church last Wednesday night, when Max discovered it was fun to have water sprayed in his mouth. Quinlin soon joined in and we spent quite some time taking turns with the water. Both Quinlin and Max had a hard time waiting for their turn to come around. Erik and I giggled with each other about how much they wanted to have the water sprayed in their mouths. Funny how something unexpected can be so much fun.

Spring has Sprung!

Spring has sprung for us here in Cheesetown! Now we get to spend time outside playing in our big back yard and super fun swing set. This is us this weekend enjoying the nice fresh air.
