Well, Henry is doing a good job adjusting to being a big brother and no longer an only child. We have been getting a kick out of hearing him learn new words and phrases. Some of the new Henry-isms are:

Yummy kisses - somehow Henry and I were talking about a book that he has called Yummy and Yucky (which educates kids not to eat worms, soap, etc) and when he gave Claudia a kiss afterwards we said yummy kisses and now he says it almost everytime he kisses her - awww, so cute!

Buy some - this is less cute but we can see he is beginning to understand our capitalistic society. This morning for breakfast he asked for bacon and ice cream. We usually don't serve him ice cream for breakfast, but he keeps asking. We did not have any bacon to fix for breakfast so we told him we were out, all gone. To which he said - buy some. We weren't sure this was what he said but he confirmed that it was. Buy some Mommy. Aww - a sign of things to come?!?

Claudia Days 12-15

I have a streak going on right now - since Claudia's birth I've taken at least one digital picture every day - and you, faithful reader, have been subjected to many of them. So far she's still sleeping like a champ, as you'll see in some shots. Tonight is my first post in 2 weeks, but I've unloaded a flurry of them that should keep you busy... enjoy!

Henry's new hobbies

Henry got a birdfeeder from his Gram for his birthday and loves watching the birds... he also is quite fond of retrieving the milk himself from the fridge

Claudia Day 10

I know what you're thinking - what about Days 7-9????

Sorry, I'm just a bad parent I guess...

More Claudia!!!

Here are a few more pictures - Henry is reacting great to having new company at the house - he is sweet and kisses her often. He also covets her Moses basket.
