We recently cleaned out and organized our board game cabinets. So instead of blogging, I've been playing Sorry, Chutes and Ladders, and Memory like nobody's business. It's fun to have two kids that are old enough to stay focused for an entire game, and then be a good sport when they don't win. I should disclose that Kilian has some impressive luck in Sorry and Lucy is SUPER GOOD at Memory.
We also sorted all our puzzles into the right boxes. Camille spends time working on puzzles while we play games, and Oliver, well...he still just sleeps a lot. He is over two months old now and sweet as can be.

good: I am so glad you had Oliver as a baby!
bad: I put my tongue in Oliver's mouth and it feels funny...
good: I'm going to be responsibility and pick up the puzzle even though I didn't get it out.
bad: My head is full of great ideas so you should just drop the charges!
good: So am I going to be on t.v. today?
bad: I'm bored. There is nothing fun to do. I'm bored. What can I do fun?
Can you guess which set of quotes came from which kid??
In about ten years someone will regret doing so when she hears she put her tongue in her brother's mouth. So will he.
I was trying to make a point about how we sometimes have a part of us that tells us something we are doing is wrong and I didn't think she 'got' it. So I clarified that she might be hearing a little voice in her mind * while pointing to my head * that said she would get in trouble if she kept it up. She came back with the quote about what was in her head instead.
Finally, we really do have two kids starring in local commercials right now. One 5 year old girl didn't feel like participating, or we would have 3 "movie stars".

I just want to announce that we are not moving this summer. For most people, that probably is not necessary, but since we have moved every July lately (2006, 2007, 2008), I thought we would surprise everyone and stay put.
We are very happy in this house. Lucy especially likes the linen closet....see? She tries to sleep in here, but she usually crawls out saying she got too hot.

and has now grown to this
with 3 of these hiding underneath!
We are so excited - except maybe Brad. He has planted several other things in his own garden and has yet to see anything as promising at Kilian's watermelons.

Camille has always been very "into" shoes. She thought it was fun to wear other people's shoes around the house at age 1. She loved to look at shoes and try on all sorts and sizes in the store at age 2. At age 3, she can talk a grandma into buying her some "diamond" shoes and pick out clothes that actually match!
