Jammin Out

Asher loves playing with any electronics. Ever since he threw the laptop across the room he has to be supervised with all of Nate's toys. We are heading up to PA tomorrow, so we will post again when we get back.

Piper update

So my little girl is trying very hard to catch up with her big brother. She turned 8 weeks old today and is now rolling from her stomach to back. She did it a few times today. Asher saw her do it the first time and decided she needed to be back on her stomach and rolled her right over again. I think she will be a tough little girl.

Puddle Jumper

For the last couple of weeks Asher has started saying bye-bye to everything. As he takes a bath and the water drains out he will over and over say bye-bye water. About a week ago he started say butt and points to his butt. During his diaper changes when we put a new diaper on him he now says bye-bye butt. It has been very hot this week so we are doing a lot of pool time. The floatie that Asher has on in the pictures is called a puddle jumper. He is doing pretty well with it. He likes to put his face in the water and blow bubbles. Last night Piper slept through the night for the first time...YAY...

Game Night

My brother and his friend are down for the week. They aren't staying with us, but they come over every night. We taught them how to play Catan and we have played it every night (I have won the majority of the games of course). Last weekend we bought Piper a play mat and she has been practicing tummy time.

Beach Day

Today I packed up the kids and went to the Outer Banks. My friend Katie is there for the week, so we visited her for the day. Asher isn't a big fan of being in the car for more than fifteen minutes, so I put on a Dora DVD to keep him entertained. He had fun running around on the beach. He liked to fill his bucket up with water and empty it on the dry sand. Piper spent the day laying on the towel in the shade.

Bath Time

Piper had her first real bath a few weeks ago. She seemed a bit confused by the whole deal. Asher is still really liking his baths. He has crayons for the tub, but he prefers to draw on himself instead of the tub. Nate has been working a lot lately and I usually run out of things to do with him by about six, so I end up giving him a lot of baths to keep him occupied.

Rainy Days

It is definitely the rainy season around here. Two weeks ago we had a huge storm. Nate was out at the time, and his car was flooded. He ended up with about 6 inches of water in the bottom. He came home and tried to clean it out. It was still raining and Asher was dying to go outside. Nate and Asher had a lot of fun splashing around. Piper decided to stay inside where it was dry.
