Gabe has developed an aversion to wearing pants. It's to the point where the only bottoms he will wear are overalls and only because he can't figure out how to get them off. Pajama bottoms aren't safe either. After nap time the other day he had stripped off his diaper along with the pants. Whee.

Addie can count to 15 now. She can recognize some of the numbers, but sometimes gets carried away with the counting and skips ahead. She will correctly count items though. Peas, cans and blocks are slid one by one as she counts them out. She can also draw a circle. Really. Drawing is one of her favorite activities.

Juliana has started laughing. But only for her daddy. It's quite possibly the cutest sound I've ever heard; quick, chirping giggles that leave her daddy in a puddle. (Just in time for a visit from her Aunts, too. They'll be thrilled.)

YES, we will be! Can't wait to see them all!

I'm so impressed with Addie -- what a smart little girl.

And Gabe... um... how hilariously bizarre.

YAAAY! Get her warmed up for us; I want to hear plenty of baby giggles this weekend...

That's great that Addie has 1-1 correspondence (sorry, teacher term). We've been working on that with Xander, too. Oh, and I love the new header pictures!
