Immigrant boy

Today I went to Tyler's class and took pictures of the kids for their Ellis Island passports. Here is Tyler as an immigrant boy. Maybe his shirt doesn't really go with the vintage theme...

Happy Birthday Caroline

Our sweet baby girl turned one yesterday. (I may have to re-create her birthday for photo purposes, these are the WORST pictures). Caroline has been an angel child. We are so lucky to have her. Right now her favorite thing to do is pretend she is on the phone. Everything is a phone, even Austin's batman guys. She crawls everywhere, and can stand, but has no interest in walking. She sucks her thumb, but only when she's sleeping. She has crazy hair and 4 teeth. We all love her so much.

Topless spaghetti

Don't worry, the adults keep their shirts on.

Caroline's first spaghetti

Dreams do come true

When I would dream of having a girl, I would imagine a chubby little tummy in a bikini. I just think it is probably the cutest thing ever. I put Caroline in an itsy bitsy bikini today and Viola, it was just as I had dreamed...

Here it is, bedhead at its finest. This girl wakes up every morning with the worst bedhead I've ever seen.

She wanted to sit on the couch with Austin. She kept trying to steal his chocolate milk so I had to get her her own.

Does he look sick to you? Poor Tyler is victim #5 to what Mike and I will attest is one of the most vicious stomach flus EVER. We thought that little iron tummy (AKA Tyler) might be spared, but he succumbed. He has actually been hoping for the stomach flu so he could miss school. After he had a nasty episode last night, he was still hovering over the toilet and happily said, "I guess this means I'm not going to school tomorrow". He seems totally okay this morning and asked for sausage for breakfast. The stomach flu must be easier on the young.

Chillin w/ his cereal

Austin LOVES to relax on the coach and watch an "Austin show". He is a serious homebody.

Despite yet ANOTHER wrestling match that re-opened Austin's wound on Christmas day, it is healing up nicely. The scar might be Harry Potteresque.

my camera lens and my baby. Camera and lens are back from repairs, and I will be trying to take more pictures. Caroline is done with her ear tube surgery, and she is much more at peace. Looking forward to 2011!
