and she's off...

Yeah! Alyssa is finally crawling! She started last week and each day does more on her hands and knees and less of the army crawl. I know my kids are kind-of slow at the whole crawling thing, but she cut a month off our fastest time! One of her favorite spots is on the landing. The past few days she has been trying to climb the step. Today, she figured it out. She thought she was so clever. Her other favorite spot is the bathroom. I guess we need to get in the habit of closing doors. She's really loving that she can get around wherever she wants. She doesn't stay put very long at all. Well, except for outside. Yesterday I took her outside on the grass, and she just sat there because she didn't like her hands to touch the grass. Oh, she is a cutie!

Earth Day 2008

Sean is having major issues with whole global warming thing. He had an especially rough week with Earth Day approaching and how political it has become. There was so much stuff on t.v. about it, and everytime he'd see something that got to him, he make me come in the room to watch. So, I thought I'd be a supportive wife and make him an Earth Day cake. Kylee and I surprised him by singing "Happy Earth Day to You!" It was really funny. It may become a new Marchant tradition.

If I could only have my two front teeth.

Kylee finally pulled out her second bottom tooth yesterday! It was so loose for the past few days, but she didn't want us to pull itShe wanted it to come out when it was "a little looser". So, we were at my mom's yesterday and she fell down the stairs and must have hit her mouth on the wall, cause a few minutes later she had her tooth in her hand. Later, she asked, "If I fall down the stairs again, will another tooth fall out?" Kids say funny things, don't they. So, we had to take a few pictures. Of course, Aaron and Collin wanted pictures of their mouths, too. And Alyssa is just cute, so I had to include her too!

Who needs toys?

So, I've read a lot of posts recently about kids and the things they find around the house (other than toys) that provide hours of entertainment. So, when I saw Aaron playing this morning, I thought I'd share, too. Recently, Aaron has been into instruction pamphlets. He loves to unfold and then try and fold them back up. He carries them around all day, puts them under his bed when he sleeps, and is constantly asking if it's the right way. It's pretty traumatic if the instructions end up ripping. But luckily, there is usually another one somewhere to be found. Collin is into computers. It's amazing what a 2 year old can do on a computer! Seriously, he can navigate all over and He can drag and click and do all kinds of stuff that even some adults probably can't do. It's crazy to think what these kids will be like with computers when they are older. I think he's addicted - he must get that from me!
