Let's Be Friends

I am happy to report that all of us are up and running again. The snot is gone and the coughing comes in short spurts early morning, making me one happy Momma!

I am also happy to report that my children are FRIENDS! They play together, they laugh together, and they get into trouble together. I am loving it. Ainsley for the longest time wanted to be around Isaac and he would just push her over when she got in the way. . . which is why I believe she has been walking since she was nine months old! (By the way I will post a video of that later on, for now use your imagination with the pictures below).

Ainsley also is quite the copy cat, and Isaac loves it. She will talk, just to repeat Isaac. She says : no, yes, bye, hi, dog, tada (magic tricks). . . here's the catch Isaac has to say the words first. NO ONE can get her to talk except Isaac. Not only does she mimic his speech but his actions. If he's riding a bike, she's trying etc.

The other day the kids were rolling around on the floor laughing SO HARD, both of them. It made me laugh so hard I cried! It has been so much fun watching their relationship grow. I love my children and hope they always remain the best of friends.

Here's the pictures that prove my children play together. . . (YES ALL OF THE PICTURES ARE BLURRY. . . sorry!)


These pictures crack me up. The first one is Isaac's face Christmas morning, the next two Ainsley. SO FUNNY! The last one is Ainsley riding her new "bike". She thinks she is pretty hot stuff, when she's on it!

There is nothing better in the world than when your kids are playing together nicely.

LOVE the pics of the kids. And I love that you posted! :) Made me happy to get your note and come see this! (by the way...no, we didn't get new collars. I'll wait and get Mav's from you! :)) I can't decide who's happy/surprised face I like better of the kids. Both crack me up! I love the jammies...where is the family photo of all of you in them?! :)
I am so happy for you that the kids are BFF's. That was my best accomplishment when they figured out how to play together. It makes it that you can be mom and not referee all day long. And yea for no more sicko's! Carter started his little cough yesterday. I am hoping it doesn't end up into his chest. Just when I thought we were getting better!
Talk to you later! :)

That is so cute. So I guess its true, having 2 kids is hard when the 2nd one is little, but when the get older is so fun?! I cant believe she is so big and walks and everything!

I can't believe Ainsley is walking...and those pj's are so cute! I too can't wait to see the bond between Elodie and her new sister..it should be really fun and crazy!!

Hopefully you are back for good..we have missed you!

Ainsley is even starting to look like him. In that 2nd picture of her Christmas "reaction" she looks like Isaac. Move closer, and I will babysit for FREE!!!!!!

HOw cute!! I can't believe Ainsley started walking at 9 months. That is crazy early. I know what you mean. I love watching my kids play together too. That is a crack up that Isaac is the only one that can get her to talk.
