Random happenings

I figured I should probably post since it's been awhile.  There's not much going on. My sister was here this past week visiting which was a lot of fun, but other then that we have been just hanging out.  This winter in Michigan has been very cold and snowy (more then usual) so we've been in doors a lot playing games, with blocks, reading books and whatever else keeps us busy.  One of Will's favorite things to watch on t.v. is the digger show, also known as extreme makeover home edition.  If you've ever watched this show you probably know that the diggers, bulldozers, etc are on probably no more then 90 seconds, but Will sits through the whole show watching it while playing with his own diggers. It's pretty funny. He actually screams and gets really excited during demolition and sounds a bit like Ty from the show.  It's really funny.  He likes building 'houses' with his blocks and knocking them over with his diggers just like they do in the show. Here are some recent pictures of this.

Can you see how little that digger is? I think it's the smallest one he has...but he loved building and knocking them over with it!
Kaela on the other hand loves to knock anything and everything down with her bare hands. It's so much fun to drive your big brother crazy! Kaela is talking like crazy these days and adding new words all the times. She's talking in sentences to us too. It's pretty cool seeing as though she's only 19 months.  I just saw some of her therapist on Friday last week and we were looking at her cognitive skills and she's very advanced. We looked ahead and she was doing and saying things that they have in the 36  month category and up.  She's not walking yet and doesn't do a lot of things in the physicalarea that she should be doing at this age on the average charts, but we know she is on her terms :) She has such a big personality. She can be quite the snot sometimes but also so funny.  The attitude is pretty big too :) She has some looks that could kill! She came out with some of these looks. I remember people saying when she was just a couple months old how she had some dirty looks :) That's my girl!
Here are some random pics of the kids.

They are just so cute! My Akela had a fascination with diggers for awhile. Everytime we would pass by a construction zone she would yell out "look it's Bob the builber", yep with a "b" instead of "d". Too funny! Way to go with those sentences Kaela!

Ok first off Will and Preston are two peas in a pod. Pres has those pjs too! They both just love building blocks, knocking them down, crashing cars. He is just a ham in that last picture. What a cutie pie. If the kids ever meet I fear Kaela will have to join in on the truck convention these two would be having.
On to Kaela now-first off every time you post pictures I swear she is growing up faster and faster. She is SOOOOO pretty! I am very impressed with her and her speaking. You will have to get a video of that soon!

Trace will HAVE to be in on the Will and Preston truck convention. Does Will have the Bob the Builder On Site Houses and Playgrounds DVD? Gotta get it - they show demolitions and everything! Trace is addicted to the Bob the Builder On Site movies!
Kaela is growing up so fast - I can't believe how much more mature her features are now! She sounds so much like Taylor - talking in sentences and having conversations at barely 18 mos! Girls are definitely social creatures!

Awwww....the pics of your kids are precious! I love the one with Kaela into the blue stuff (what is that?)

Are you going to the spring regional in April? If so, lets meet up!!! Ellie would have a blast with Kaela!

I am glad you had fun with your sister!
Will is so funny, I love it that he used that little digger to knock over the blocks...too funny.
I want to hear Kaela talk, I bet she has just the cutest voice. Good luck with that attitude...or maybe I should wish Matt luck, since he has to deal with two ladies with the attitude;)

Kaela is just adorable, and way to go on speaking sentences! So impressive! She is growing up so fast, and I love that she has attitude! Ok, we need a video of her talking too! :) The picture of her with blue stuff on her face is so cute!
