the kiddos

Aunt Susanne (my sister) is here from Hood River, Oregon. (She told me today that her landlords were the founders of the Full Sail Brewing Co., which makes Full Sail Ale. Yum!) We've been taking quite a few pictures.


Ben is laughing here. Susanne is doing "Patty Cake" with him.


Daniel decided the best way to enjoy the sprinkler is to drink from it.


"Ahhh!" He actually turned to me and said that.


Daniel's trying to spread his love of cell phones. (That's not really a cell phone. It's the remote control for his nanny's car. But as long as he thinks he's got a phone, that's OK with me.) Lately, I've heard him talking to Ben. I'm not sure what he's saying most of the time, but it's nice.

I've been surprised at the strength of the sibling bond - how quickly they have taken to each other. It's really fun to watch.

Very cute! I bet Ben has an adorable laugh! Seeing pictures of people's kids together as siblings makes me so excited for what's to come!

Sisters are the best aren't they? Someday your boys will be saying...brothers are the best!

I'll have to try that Ale!
Peace to you Emily!

Love Ben's little toothless grin! What a great age. When they smile, their entire bodies light up.
