Clark and Daddy, hanging out at the mall:

Elise emptied her giant toy box not so she could play with the toys, but so she could play inside the toy box:

Lately Elise has been making a "funny face" by sticking her fingers in her mouth and stretching her cheeks. She even makes her "funny face" at strangers sometimes.

Happy Anniversary to Mimi and Grampy!

April 21

We went to the Wakulla Wildlife Festival today. The kids got see all kinds of cool animals including a skunk and a baby alligator. They also got to touch a snake, a starfish, horseshoe crabs, and sea urchins. But the highlight of the day (for our foster son especially) was all of the cool antique tractors on display.

Elise was given a sticker today at the library. She peeled the backing off and then immediately stuck the sticker on her back. Don't know why. She wore it there all day.

April 11: Baby Story Time

The kids always have so much fun when we go to the library for baby story time. Today Elise brought her big white teddy bear, which she calls "Mama Teddy" (she also has a small white teddy bear that is named "Baby Teddy"):

Clark likes songs that have hand movements that go along with the words, like The Itsy Bitsy Spider:

Today Clark thought it was so funny to roll under my bed. He had a great time playing peekaboo. He also figured out how to play peekaboo with a blanket today-- he would pull the blanket over his head, then yank it down quickly and laugh and laugh.

Mommy and her baby Elise.

Happy Easter! One of the things we did with the kids today was go to a park playground.

Clark liked watching the big kids play. Happy 1st Easter, Clark!!!

(I did it! I'm finally caught up on my daily pictures! Yay! An Easter miracle!)
