August Times Had by All...

This has been another great month! Graham came to visit for a couple weeks from Seattle. It was the first time we have seen him in a year! I think that is the longest time I've ever gone without seeing my brother. Of course, with little kiddos, they can change a whole lot in a year! He was surprised to see how big Calvin was and to get to meet Jack for the first time.

There was a lot of music made in our house while he was here. Here's a fun family jam session. Graham is playing the Cajone, a cool drum box thing. Cal even joined in on the fun with his tiny guitar.

Jack is getting much bigger and is transitioning into sleeping through the nights-thank you Babywise! He slept 9 hours the other night. It's still not every night yet, but we're getting there. I am feeling much better with sleep. I don't function well when exhausted.

This is a new fun activity that has become an almost everyday thing. I read about this in a book and thought I'd give it a try. You put shaving cream in a muffin tin and add different colors of food coloring and let the kids paint the tub! Calvin loves this and asks to "paint" on a regular basis.

Calvin has also been saying some really cute things and I wanted to document them so that we won't forget them someday. He calls Cooper our dog, "Pooper" because he can't say it right. He will say, "ah, ah pooper" when Cooper is doing something naughty, or "Pooper, where are you?!?" It is so hard to not laugh every single time. He is also singing constantly. Some of his favorite songs are the Winnie the Pooh theme song (to which he knows all the words) Easy Going a song on the movie "Follow that Bird" and the I love you song from Barney (yuck) but it's sooo cute when he sings it to us.
