Flash Cards

Sydney loves to play with her flash cards. She asks to play every night. She knows all 200 cards now. We need to get some more so she can keep learning.

Kaden learning to walk

Kaden has started using his push toy to learn to walk. He is not as excited about the idea of walking as Sydney was. I think he figures why walk if these big people will carry me.

For Halloween Sydney was a UT cheerleader and Kaden was a Pumpkin.

We lost a cord to our camera a while back and have been unable to upload pictures. We have that fixed, so here are a bunch of pictures.

Good Morning

Sydney loves to say good morning to everybody and everything now. "Good morning mommy. Good morning daddy. Good morning milk. Good morning TV. "

Here are some videos over her saying good morning to Kaden.

Kaden's first tooth

Kaden had his first tooth. He has been teething so he is a little fussy, but not too bad. I think he fakes it sometimes at night so he can sleep in Mom and Dads bed.

Coast Trip

We took a trip to Port Aransas for my dad's birthday. We stayed in a house a few blocks from the beach and had a great time. Thanks for having us and Happy Birthday Dad!

Kaden with my mom at Cara's birthday party.
Kaden outside at our house.
Sydney found 1/2 of a tennis ball and was throwing it, here she kept saying, "where go?" because she kept loosing it.
It's impossible to get them both in a picture together.
So happy playing outside.
Sydney on her Barbie ATV, she doesn't understand steering, but she knows to push the button to make it go.

Since the weather's been so nice lately we've been playing outside a lot, of course that's all about to change since it's quickly getting too hot. Kaden mostly hangs out in the bouncer chair while Sydney runs around everywhere, and has a huge fit every time we have to come inside. This is a video of Sydney playing in a bounce house at Cara's birthday party.

Kaden's 6 month check up

Kaden had his 6 month check up this week. He was 29 inches long and 18 lbs. 13 oz. That puts him in the 75th percentile in weight and above the 97th percentile on height. He is one big boy. We took some pictures to show how much he has grown.

Sharing the exersaucer

Kaden has taken over Sydney's old exersaucer. They play pretty well together in this video. Kaden gets about 3 seconds with a toy before Sydney decides she wants it.

Mother/Daughter Weekend and Son Too!

Sydney, her 3rd cousin Ainsley and Callie.

1st horse ride, what a natural!

Last weekend the kids and I and Cara went to Kamp for mother/daughter. Sydney rode her first horse and loved it. I think being up so high with such a different perspective was quite exciting for her. And she loved wearing her little cowboy boots (thanks Autie Carol). I put her tennis shoes on her Sunday morning and she got her boots out of the suitcase and brought them to me so she could wear them. Kaden pretty much just hung out and liked being outside all weekend.

Easter Party

Sydney had a little Easter party at school today, Brian and I both went to witness the mayhem! She's never hunted eggs before since she was only 7 mos old last Easter so I showed her the eggs through the window and told her, 'You pick up the eggs and put them in your basket.' I didn't know if she understood really especially since the eggs were outside in their little play area. The teacher's opened the door and told the kids it's time...she got a little crazed, she definitely has a competitive side to her and filled up her basket in no time. Half the kids had no interest in the eggs, they just wanted to play and clearly had no idea some of them were candy-filled, some of the others picked up a couple and didn't quite get it. I woke Kaden up from his nap in his room so he could come to the party too, I think he was a little confused about what was going on.

Dallas Arboretum

We went to the Dallas Arboretum last Sun with the Lieck's, their house in on the market and have been having open houses on Sun so we've been joining them as they get out of their house for a while. Sydney had hardly napped so our visit was a little short and you could tell she was approaching a meltdown, but she still had a lot of fun. Kaden took a little nap and while awake i think he liked being outside.
This is a covered wagon that's in the Pioneer Village and Sydney did not like other kids being in there with her, she screamed a little when another girl got in.
