Kids in stripes

So I've been thinking that it's been a really long time since I've taken pictures of my kids! Shame. Shame on me!

I have to say that one of the most rewarding things about being a mother of two is seeing them love and interact with each other. The first time Ethan reached over and helped Leah get one of her toys just melted my heart. Ethan is always very concerned about Leah and where she is, and is very gracious at sharing his (precious) cars. Because Leah is definitely more mobile now, she is able to be involved with Ethan and likes to be where he is. She's a lot more aggressive than Ethan is. It kinda makes me laugh that she pushes and runs over Ethan more than Ethan does her. It has not been a piece of cake having kids this close together, but I'm so glad we did. It's getting easier every day and I know they will have a great friendship and relationship. (I'm sure with a lot of quarreling and whining in between.)

Oh, and FYI Leah will now eat baby food! She eats both store-bought and home-made and likes to take bites of what we're having. I really don't know what clicked, I tried every other day or so and all of a sudden she acted really excited when I got it out. Maybe she just got hungry enough!

Oh wow! He has gotten so big! Such beautiful children, and so good natured. It must be because of their excellent parents.

There's no way that's Leah....STANDING! Don't tell me she can walk already? I hate being so far away! On the one hand, I get to see Schell's kids grow, but I miss so much with you guys!

I had to check out your blog. Great pictures! You're kids are adorable. I love to watch Ethan at church. He has the best facial expressions. I hope you are surviving the move!
