I love watching my man play with his baby girl! It is so special to me when he puts on pink headbands and acts silly with her. I remember my own Dad playing with me--although no pink headbands come to memory, and it was and is still special. Darren is a great daddy! Happy early Father's Day!

We fed the giraffe a sweet potatoe slice. You don't realize how big their heads are until it's that close to you! WOW!
Gotta love that long purple tongue! It was soft and pretty dry--sort of like a horse!

Emma was in rotten terrible two form today. Never, I repeat NEVER, let your child wear crocs to the zoo. She wouldn't keep them on--and amazingly they both came home. She wouldn't walk, sit, cooperate--GRRRR! You can tell that I'm trying to smile and deal with her but "God, give me strength!" Please pray with me!
She's yelling NO in case you're wondering!
Hey, look she's walking! Yikes-- a lizard! The Desert is HOT!
Caleb and Zeke were good travelling buddies! Caleb slept through most of our visit--whoohoo! FYI--watch out their dolphin show is brutally "GREEN" --it was nauseating! I actually wrote a comment to the zoo when I got home--and I don't do that sort of thing!

I had Darren tape bathtime with the Crazies! Emma was never big on splashing but Caleb never stops splashing--even when he's drowning himself and others! Anyone doing baths will most like be soaked and have to change shirts and mop the floor! It is very cute though! Emma likes to "help" us and believes that because we dump water over her head to rinse her hair that she should do the same for her brother. Two year olds--they're so helpful!

Look at the soft, fuzzy baby hair! It is growing over his ears but I'm not ready to cut it yet!
Emma "made" her playhouse all by herself today. She had a great time...as I think ya'll can tell!
We shared snack today--corn chips! Don't worry, I watched closely. Caleb sucked them until they became soggy. Emma would then announce, "Mess" and I would switch him for a new one! He had a great time and it was very peaceful--amazing for snack time!

Caleb has really gotten the hang of this walker thing! He will take anything and make it into a walker if he can't find this real one. He will use his barn, his sister's toy stroller, and the Dora car! All very entertaining. He gets quite annoyed when he can't run over the things in his way. I just had to catch this on video for ya'll. He is such a fun little bug! I know, I sound like a total nut in the background but this just truly excites me!

I love morning time at our house. It's not that I'm not tired--the first thing I do is get some coffee--it's that my babies are snuggly and the day is still quiet. I hardly get a chance to hold Emma these days because she is so busy. She also tends to be a true Daddy's girl and is most often on his lap if he is available. This morning she wanted to be snuggled in my shawl and we were laughing about our lovely legs. She says, "Luzly luzly." I'm not sure she knew what I meant but she was being lovey!
This is one of those weird pictures that I know will make me teary later when I'm old! My sweet baby girl's legs with her Mama's! Notice the unshaved paleness of mine and the bruised two-year-oldness of hers! HA!
