Here's one of the birthday presents we got Caleb. He didn't like it quite as much as we hoped but I think when we get some other kids to play with him, he will like it more. 
Yesterday we just pulled some cookies out of the oven. Brynn knew what they were and wanted them.
When we put Brynn down to sleep, she holds her blanket and sucks her thumb. When she found her sleep sack on the floor she knew exactly what to do.

Birthday Party!

We had a birthday gathering on Sunday for the kids. It was fun because both sides of the family were able to get together. We enjoyed banana cake:

The kids loved their presents too:
This was so cute to see Caleb mowing the lawn with Derrick. Caleb totally loves this and is always asking to mow the law now.

Easter Morning & Stats from Doctor

Brynn had her doctor appointment on Tuesday. Here's her 1 year updates:
Weight: 18 lbs, 24th percentile
Height: 28 inches, 12th percentile
People always tell me she looks small, but I didn't realize she was that small. She looks normal to me. So opposite of Caleb! He's always about 90%. Oh well, we love Brynn just as she is.
Caleb has his appointment on Friday:
Weight: 33 lbs, 67th percentile
Height: 39 inches, 84th percentile
Yay! Caleb has gone way up in the weight category, which is great! Still pretty tall too!

Easter Time at Grandma and Grandpa's

We made a quick stop today at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We did a little Easter celebration by painting eggs and doing a little egg hunt outside. It was a beautiful day (don't let it get away...haha)!
Oh, and I drew pictures on the eggs with the wax crayon the kit provided. Caleb loved the surprise of seeing what I drew for him (since you can't see it until after it is dyed).

Brynn enjoyed the candy. She totally knows what candy is when she sees it now!

In the morning when I told Caleb we would be going to the aquarium in the afternoon, a smile stretched across his face and he said, "I pwayed to go to the aquarium." I'm sure it was a prayer of the heart :)
Even though I have a year pass to the aquarium, you have to start paying for kids at age three, so since Caleb will be three next week, I wanted to go one more time before his birthday.

Grandma was able to meet up with us!

Caleb loves penguins. Oh, and he touched the sting rays for the first time because they were actually swimming around and surfacing.
