I still don't have much time to write, but thought I would put a few new pictures on for you all to see!

This picture was taken after baths one night. Carole just loves bathtime with her daddy!

Here we have Andrew sitting with his Speech Language Pathologist who works with him once a week. He always looks forward to her coming.

This last picture is of Carole SITTING UP playing with her toys. She still tips occasionally (hence the boppy pillow around her) but she is getting better!

Fun Pictures

One day Carole lay on the floor fascinated by the big Tigger stuffed animal. She rolled around and played with him for a good half hour!

I thought this picture turned out so cute of Andrew and Carole laying next to each other after their bath one night.

Andrew Riding Rides

On Labor Day weekend, we took Andrew to the local festivities. It was the first time in his life that he got to ride carnival rides. He thought it was pretty cool! His favorite was when he got to be the engineer of the train. Everytime a ride would end he would shot "Agin!" Translation: Again!

While big brother rode rides Carole watched safely from her stroller. She loved being out and about! I forgot to take a picture of her that day! :)

Carole and her Daddy

Carole loves to spend time with her Daddy. When she sees him enter the room, her face just lights up with smiles! He always brings a smile to her face. She especially likes it when he hums "Pop goes the Weasel" to her. That always makes her stop crying!

Potty Training Story

We have been trying to potty train Andrew for a little over a month now. He was doing pretty good getting the number 2's in the potty. About a week ago he started to regress. He would do it in his pants everyday at nap time. He knew he wasn't supposed to because he says that poo goes in the potty not his pants.

Well, one day after a meal Phil asked Andrew if he had to go. He said no. Phil told him to tell us if he had to go. He said, "Kay, Dad!" He then ran off to play with Carole in the kitchen. He pushed her around in her walker and played with her for a good 2o minutes. All of a sudden he came running out of the kitchen and ran towards the bathroom. While he was running he was yelling, "Da, Da, butt ow now!!!" Sure enough, he had to go! Phil and I were so shocked that he actually told us he had to go!

More pictures

I love Carole's bright eyes and just had to share this picture! Can you notice that her cheeks are starting to fill out? For those of you who don't know, Carole had not gained any weight for over a month. We are now adding a fortifier to her milk and she is starting to gain!

This picture is a pretty typical scene in our house. Andrew loves to play next to Carole. In this picture I think he is trying to "read" to her. I don't think she was listening! :)

On the go!

This is one of my favorite pictures of Carole. She now gets to where she wants to go by rolling. She started out near the living room and ended up under the dining room table. She loves to be mobile. She also gets very mad when she tries to crawl and is not successful. Rolling around keeps her mobile but she cannot control her rolls to get to her desired destination.

Fun Pictures

Here is the King and Queen on their thrones!

Carole posing on her throne.

Here is Carole doing her favorite thing, eating! She sees anyone holding a bowl and she goes nuts. I don't think she will ever starve! We like to call her Miss Piggy.

Here is Andrew and Phil on a rainy day. We finally got some rain. Andrew has rarely seen rain in his short life. He thought it was pretty cool to go stand in it.
