Random Post Monday!

I don't know what it is about our kids, but they both REFUSED to feed themselves as babies! I know they have/had the ability to do it, but why should they bother when they know that someone else will feed them! They are just like their parents...STUBBORN! Last week I was on a mission to get Sienna to feed herself a bottle. She did good for about 2 feedings...and then she figured out that it was much more fun to turn the bottle upside down! If you've ever used a Dr. Brown bottle, you know how big of a mess that will make. Needless to say, I haven't let Sienna feed herself since then! Of course Brayden had to take his turn in the chair since it looked like Sienna was having so much fun. ;)
Brayden really gets into his artwork...I tried talking to him (several times) and he was in such a zone that it was like talking to a wall! Freedom
Slowly but surely, Sienna is being given more freedom around the house. Now that she knows how much fun it is to play in the other areas of the house, she definitely doesn't doesn't like being trapped in the living room. Her 2 new favorites toys are 1) the art easel (which Brayden absolutely does NOT want her touching) and 2) the grocery cart which is full of play food.
The Wii
Chris decided that it would be fun for the whole family to get a we needed more video games! I really don't like video games but I was curious about the Wii after hearing that it wasn't like regular games. Brayden and Chris have played several times but I haven't gotten much of a chance to check out anything but Mario Kart, which is actually pretty fun. Brayden and I have fun steering the wheel together. Brayden also has fun fishing with daddy. Below Brayden is playing his first game...Shooting Range.

I enjoy keeping up with your family. I can't believe how big they are both getting. What a beautiful family you have!

Wow! You're so much better with the artwork than I am. I think Wyatt is still just a tad more interested in seeing how the colors look on the table or floor rather than his coloring book. :-)
