Tonight at Bedtime...

Caleb was making Brynn laugh with the Mini Mouse doll. It was the cutest thing to hear Brynn laughing so hard:

Caleb Stories and Jenna Birthday

Caleb stories:
  • We were reading ABC books. At the letter P, Caleb says, "P is for pee pee." He couldn't stop saying that and laughing through the rest of the letters. Potty jokes already!
  • Before Caleb takes a bath we have him sit on the potty. One time this week he looked really excited and said, "I go pee pee." I looked in and didn't see anything but he was convinced he went. He was so excited I said, "Good job Caleb" and put him in the bath. After the bath I gave him a piece of licorice (our reward for going) and he was so proud. He even let Brynn suck on the end of it for a minute.
  • Two Sundays ago Caleb came home from church with a coloring book he made saying, "Jesus created the earth." It had pictures of things on the earth. I asked Caleb, "Did Jesus create the earth?" Caleb responded yes. I asked what Jesus created on the earth. Caleb said, "Animals. Zebra. Elephant." It was so cute to see him learning the gospel!
Last Sunday James and Jenna came over and we celebrated Jenna's 20th birthday!

Caleb is a Funny Boy

  • Caleb likes to color pictures and put them on the fridge. A few days ago he stapled a post-it note and stuck it to the fridge. I guess it was art to him.

  • When we tell Caleb it is time for bed he says, "It not time Cabib go to bed yet."
  • Yesterday I asked Brynn if she liked going to Grandma's house. Caleb looks over at me and says, "Bwynn can't talk Mommy."
  • This is a sweet one: as Derrick and I were leaving Caleb's room Caleb said, "Mommy, give me a kiss. Silly." I had given him a kiss, earlier than right before we left the room. He must have forgotten that and thought it was silly that I would have forgotten to remember the last part of bedtime routine.

Crawling...well, scooting

These videos aren't great but Brynn is scooting all around the floor. She attempts to crawl but lands back on her tummy like this:

Here's the end of one of her scoots. She moves one leg up and pushes herself. It is exactly what Caleb did:

We also gave Caleb a hair cut today:

Dinosaur Museum

We had a blast at the Museum of Ancient Life. There was lots to do. Brynn was even able to get out and play in an area with plastic dinosaurs kids could play with.

There was a neat part with running water and sand...

...Caleb tried to collect all the trees and build them up in the sand.

There was also a sandpit with paint brushes so the kids could brush away the sand to find "fossils." So cute! Caleb loved that too.

Brynn was patient in the stroller while we did all the things for Caleb.

We will definitely be going back there again!

A friend's facebook status was something like: Pinterest turned me from a boring mom to a fun mom. I totally agree with that statement. That same friend linked to this fun activity (we didn't do the paint part though). Caleb had a blast. He sat there for at least 20 minutes.

Even when he was done blowing bubbles he found other ways to stay busy with it. Like pretend the bubbles were food and he would mix up "pancakes" and give them to me. He also did this while singing Give Said the Little Stream:
