I am sooo behind on blogging because my parents came to visit for 10 days! We had a lot of fun and there are blogs to come on our activities while they were here, but until I put the pictures on the computer I need to journal a couple of little things about my kiddos. Jacob never ever ever never walks...he runs (or jumps), it is really like he is incapable of walking. He is also super affectionate and gives so many hugs and kisses, mostly unsolicited. Yesterday at the park he hugged some random mommy, it was hilarious and she just couldn't get over it. He is very high energy and very intense, lately I wake up to him screaming "NO!" at his sister from his crib every morning (and as is tradition she breaks down bawling after every "NO!"). He frequently is asking "HELP YOU" which is his way of asking for help. It is hilarious when he needs help because he starts calmly asking "help you" and it quickly gets more frantic "help you, Help you, Help You, HELP YOU", someday he will learn that it is "help me."

Claire is our little princess and she is quite sensitive to every grunt, scream, or holler made by her brother. She is sneaky too, she can provoke her brother pretty well but she always careful to look around to make sure she is clear before doing it, she also will sometimes break down crying when she thinks no one is paying attention because she can usually get Jacob into trouble. She loves to say "okay" when she knows you understand her, for example today she wanted me to "help you" (she learned it from her brother) with the "choo choo"and when I said "you want mama to help you with your choo choo?" she quickly went from frantic to a cheery "OKAY!" She also likes to say "Oh Boy" when she is excited; yesterday we went to playgroup at the park and as we were walking from the car to the playground she exclaimed "Slide, Oh Boy!"

Both of my kids scream "Fry!" (actually it is more like "fwy") every time we pass a building that resembles a fast food drive thru (I promise I don't really feed them fast food often). They love to point out every airplane they hear and they have to say "bye bye airplane" before they can move on with their day.

There are so many funny things that they are doing and so much they are discovering, they try to repeat everything and are starting to repeat us as we say family prayers. I will journal more as I think about their funny things

It was fun to read this blog just after I visit. I can hear ther little voices in my head as they say "help you?" and Claire's cute little okay. I didn't get to hear the oh boy yet. I also can attest to Jacob's "NO" to get a rise out of Claire and her little antics when she thinks she is lacking in attention. Explaining it doesn't do justice--you have to be there to witness it!
