Portraits

 
 
Nila got a scrapbook from Grandma for Christmas and she LOVES it. She immediatley stole all of the few photos I had printed out to fill it up. She also started doing portraits of people. Here she is telling us how she used the photos to copy off of.

Lillian and her babies

 
 
Lilly is really starting to love her babies. She is carrying them around more and is very concerned about keeping their faces clean. I think we went thru a whole pack of wipes this way...

Books on tape

 
Following in both her parents' footsteps - Nila just loves her books on tape. Although Jason and I don't have quight this elaborate of a setup whenever we listen to ours.

A game

 
 
 
Jonas and Lillian were playing on Saturday - pushing these designs back and forth under the bathroom door. It was so cute. After about ten minutes of this I hear Jonas yell..."Can you wipe my buns?!?!" I don't even want to imagine what the scene looked like in that bathroom.

Fun with a tissue box

 
 
I am not sure what they were doing, but it is so nice to see them play together.

Silverware help

 
 
 
 
 
Lillian loves to unload the silverware from the dishwasher. Today she pulled up a stool to rest while she unloaded. When she is putting it away she opens the drawer from the floor and then just chucks it over the side into the drawer. It is adorable. She also has a thing for drawers and likes them closed. She'll follow Jason around closing all the doors and drawers he has left open.

Lillian is such a ham for the camera. Whenever we get the camera out she runs in front and plunks herself down for the photo and smiles. The older two could learn a thing or two from her.

Lilly paints

 
 
 
The other morning I came up from the basement to see Lillian had helped herself to Jonas' paints. When I first rounded the corner she kept pointing to the paints and then knoding her head. She is really turning into a full on person. Getting so cute and cuddly. She also grew finally! I need to check her officially, but she is finally out of 18m clothes and into some 24m stuff and she just feels a lot more solid and heavy.

34

 
 
 
Jason and I went out to dinner for my birthday the week before last. I hadn't planned on having a cake or anything and the kids were DEVISTATED! Nila started crying first thing in the morning when I told her. "What! No birthday party!" and then "Why didn't you tell me yesterday! I have to make you a crown! I have to make you a present!" Jonas was just dumbfounded. "How are you going to open presents? How can it be your birthday?"

So, I just HAD to make a cake for them to enjoy. Lillian ended up just loving it, smiling and clapping. We sang Happy Birthday three times because she was so much fun to watch.

Christmas Morning

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The camera was not out a lot Christmas morning, but it was awesome! The kids had so much fun and loved all their gifts. Nila got a new desk and both kids got sleeping bags. They have been sleeping in them on the floor for the last two weeks.
