From tender to terrible!

Any guesses why our little cherub is so upset?

It's true, he's turning out to have quite the personality! Hmmmm, I guess this shouldn't really surprise me, but he's been so sweet for so long. : /

*Answer to the question: We took the remote control away!*

Bedtime invasion ...

video
We go through this almost every night when Jessica and Will are in bed before Jonathan. Jonathan loves to make his brother and sister laugh!

Jessica loves to dance

Playing in the sprinklers

I thought I'd try to upload my videos to you tube and then link to them to see if that was any easier or quicker. I don't think it is, and the quality is pretty bad! : (
Anyway, back to the video, Jessica and Will were having so much fun playing in the sprinklers. Everytime Jessica and Will would go between a sprinkler they would yell, "split!" They also loved counting to 5 and then running around! It might be kind of hard to notice on the video, but they took their shoes off a bit before I shot this and put them over a few sprinkler heads to make the water spray in different directions! I love watching them having so much fun -- and getting along!!

My latest pics of Jonathan

While Jessica and Willbon were busy running through the sprinklers, I took a few minutes to snap these pictures of Jonathan with my new lens. Notice the dirt on his face!! He was trying to eat the dirt from the garden like a typical boy!

Running in the Sprinklers

After a week of on-and-off rain, Jessica and Will were tired of being cooped up inside the house. Today was finally a nice sunny warm day, so we decided to go play in the sprinklers. Jessica and Will had lots of fun, and Jonathan enjoyed himself too.

Video of Jonathan Clapping

Happy birthday to me!! I got a new camcorder for my birthday, as well as a new lens and flash for my still camera, and Guitar Hero 2 and the movie Enchanted!! Wow! I made out like a bandit this year! : ) Thanks everyone!!
We are testing out the new camcorder, and trying to figure out the easiest way to get videos to the blog. !CLICK HERE! , and then push the play button, to see a video of Jonathan standing and clapping on Will's blog.
As soon as we get everything figured out I'll get a video of Jonathan walking!!

another little troublemaker

Well, I think I can make it official! Jonathan is following closely behind in the footsteps of his older brother (--and sister!). It's amazing how much more of their personality comes out when they are more mobile. Now that Jonathan is getting more steady on his feet, and he is not afraid to travel the house alone, we are starting to see his mischievous side!
It started after he learned to crawl, and he headed straight for the kitchen trash can and proceeded to knock it over and play with the trash he found! Then he discovered the toilets, and then the tub and showers. After that he decided his new favorite place to play was the fireplace! He was constantly sneaking over to try and play in the ashes. The latest conquest has been the kitchen cupboards. Now that he can stand up, he loves to open and shut the cupboards, and while he's there he finds joy in emptying them of their contents! Thankfully some of our cupboards are childproofed (and soon they all will be!!), but of course, Jonathan has discovered which ones are open and he heads straight for them! Yesterday he found a glass pitcher that he thought he would try and bang against the tile to see what would happen. : / A huge crash, and lots of shattered glass later, we made it official -- Jonathan is another little troublemaker!!
