"Kyseeya" is Mad Gab version for what I hear come out of Burke's mouth so many times each day I cannot even count them all. Any guesses?

Translation: "Can I see her?"
Of course you can Burke...and love her to pieces.

Thumb Sucker

I caught the girl in the act of sucking her thumb and snapped this photo. I later noticed the two binkis in the bed right beside her. Evidence of our futile attempts to keep from having a thumb sucker. It doesn't seem to matter how hard we try she prefers her thumb to the bink when its time to sleep.

And let's be honest...she is sleeping through the night so...really...I'm not trying too hard to disrupt that habit.

No matter what is going on...
...or who is around...

...it always seems...

...all eyes are on Blake.

Who says good looks are everything? What about a sense of humor?

Charlie's birthday

Holding true to birthday tradition, Charlie woke up to breakfast in bed. The sleepy five year old could barely keep his eyes open.

At 5 years old Chralie is learning to ride his bike, swim, and read. He really likes to be with friends and loves baby Blake. He is frequently heard telling jokes and has a few good ones. His most commonly told joke is "Knock, knock. (Who's there?) Boo. (Boo who?) Oh, it's ok baby. It's only a joke."
Charlie wanted a strawberry cake with strawberry icing. Knowing that he would end up with a PINK cake I tried to get him to choose something else or let me color the icing. He just looked at my like that was such a foolish suggestion..."strawberry isn't blue," he must have been thinking.

Charlie got a "sport suit" last year for his birthday and was pretty disappointed a few weeks ago when I told him that he had outgrown it. Then the light turned on and he said, "Good thing I can just get another one for my birthday." Good thing I found one.
