Happy Easter

Here are a few pictures of Caleb, Alanna and their cousins getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Alanna loved searching for her "purpo eggs."

Wondering Where to Sleep?...part 2

Look who we found under the bed?

I went in to check on the kids before I went to bed and I couldn't find Alanna anywhere! Of course, my first thought is: She's been kidnapped!!! Then I realized that the kids were playing under the bed before Keith went in and said (in a rather loud voice), "Stay in bed!" Apparently, the loud voice didn't phase Alanna because she got right back out and crawled under Caleb's bed.
I'm guessing that she crawled under there when it was somewhat still light out and by the time she wanted to get out, it was too dark to see where she was going. She was pretty much trapped on all sides. There's the pack n play by her feet, a laundry basket right in front of her and the bean bag chair was up against opening of the bed. Now can you see why I couldn't find her???

The reason this is titled Part 2? See April 2008...

Happy 1 Month Birthday, Ryland!

Caleb at 1.5 months---Mr. Baldy

Alanna at 1 month

I can't believe it's been a whole month already! I will have to admit that I was a bit worried about Ryland's sleeping "problems" in the beginning. He was nothing like Caleb and Alanna, who immediately took to sleeping in the crib without a problem. Ryland seemed to need more cuddling and rocking after each feeding. Many a nights I ended up just bringing him back to bed with me....all the while worrying that I was creating horrible habits that would be impossible to break. Well, here we are 1 month later. He wakes up 2 times a night (2 am and 5 am) and goes right back to bed in his crib after each feeding.

And for all those people who say that Ryland looks like Caleb....I'm going to have to disagree.
What do you think?
