Eric is a Cowboys fan (booooo!), and he is working on making the little dude one, too. So far so good (or terrible, if you ask me).
The little guy was doing that all during last night's game. Hilarious!

We had a nice Christmas (last week... sorry for the delay). Santa brought the little booger "applesauce (like you get at Chick-fil-A), chocolate, and some doctor things." The baby slept through the opening of presents.
The giant child also got a pretty amazing garbage truck. We all have had fun playing with it-- it really compacts trash! I think we're pretty much at capacity for large trucks now (hint hint).

Tummy time for the baby has turned into a family affair.

The little guy did something tonight he hasn't done in a looooong time: he fell asleep on the way home from dinner and didn't wake up even though a change into pajamas and being put into bed. Wow-- he was tired!
Baby girl and her big brother played together the other night for the first time. She spat out her pacifier and it literally flew through the air. The boy started laughing and then stuck it back in her mouth. When she spit it out again, he laughed even harder and stuck it back in her mouth again. This went on for about 10 minutes... he was cracking up hysterically and she looked a little confused.

It didn't rain this afternoon (yay!) so we went on a walk to the playground. The little one is over eight pounds now, so I can use the front carrier. It's *so* much easier than the stroller when we have the dog with us.

The little one is starting to be able to control her head somewhat. And by somewhat I mean a little more than a poorly stuffed rag doll. Here is an old fashion video.
Pops is in town too so he is spending some fun time with his newest little granddaughter. I think she actually laughed on purpose some this evening. Is that even possible? Pops was blowing in her hair and she produced a huge grin. Melted her daddy's heart. But then she spit up...ugh.

|Well, if you must. Check out this clearance!|

The little guy takes after me with his love of band-aids. (My grandma gave me band-aids for my third birthday.) We only give the little dude a band-aid if he's bleeding, so he's started getting a little creative with his understanding of blood. The other day, he told me there was blood inside his finger, so he needed a band-aid. Here's what he did today:
And here's the end result:

We got to introduce the new one to about a quarter of her extended family at a wedding this weekend (congrats to the happy couple!). The big one spent the night dancing with his cousins (no photos of that, sorry!) and the little one got to snuggle with her great-grandmother. Everyone was happy!

The little one spent some time today looking at her mobile-thing. It's the first time she's been interested in it!

This is the
bestonly picture I got of the big one today. He was remarkably well-behaved all day-- and we did a lot of stuff! I'm very pleased.

We went to a local children's museum today. It was really fun! One of the other parents asked the older one if he liked his little sister. He said "Well, all my baby sister does is poop in her diapers. She just poops in her cloth diapers." What a smug little realist!
And here's a cute photo from this weekend of everyone-but-me asleep on the couch:

The One Who Talks looked out the window today and recited the beginning of The Cat in the Hat. (The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play.) He did take advantage of a break in the weather and went on a ride in the country. That's pedaling his trike in the grass as opposed to the driveway. Here he is returning from his trip.

One of my fashionable aunts sent the new one the cutest outfit I've ever seen. See?
I think she's adorable, although her horrified facial expression shows that she clearly doesn't trust me.
In other news, the little guy thoroughly enjoyed a chocolate-chip cookie last night.

Despite Eric's best efforts to talk the boy out of it, we went to the Christmas Parade downtown this evening. It was raining pretty hard, but it wasn't too cold out. All the pictures I took look pretty dark, rainy, and miserable, but we had a good time.

The little dude has been assigned the role of a wise man in our church's Christmas pageant this Sunday. Here he is in costume (pre-hemming):

I am my mother's daughter. Today, I took both kids (and my poor mother-in-law) outside in the cold because it was sunny. Anyway, the little one wasn't a huge fan of something, so she cried. Sometimes when she cries, the boy runs over and says "What's wrong, baby?" right in her face in a loud, high-pitched, sing-song voice. It's hilarious, but less than helpful.

After saying goodbye to my parents today, the little guy played doctor. He likes to give us shots with his needle. Luckily for us, his "needle" is the not-at-all-sharp antennae for a remote control car. Phew! Here's Eric being a good sport:

We took the Santa Express train ride today with my parents and both little ones. The giant child was enthralled with the train and the engineers. He was glued to the window and almost completely ignored Santa Claus and Santa's elf (who was handing out candy canes).
When we asked him who gave him the candy cane, we got a blank stare. I said "Did Santa's elf give you the candy cane?" and he replied "No. It was some lady dressed up in red and green."
|He was like this the entire ride, even when Santa came by.|
|This one just slept.|
