Carson especially loves patty-cake. If he is within earshot and I say "are you ready?" he sits up, grinning, and puts his hands together. He can be totally bummed, crying, whatever, and he's always cheered by a little patty-cake. Cracks me up. What's even funnier is that with the twin factor one will watch me playing with the other and enjoy it vicariously. Truly hilarious. Brady thinks it's fun just to clap, with or without the words.
Emmie loves the boys. She loves to run up to them and yell "BOO-YAH!!!!" Usually it makes them laugh, sometimes it scares them. In general they love her even when she loves them a bit too hard.
Logan is finally better - whatever he had lasted a long time and he hasn't had any energy until today. He was doing laps around the house until I told him to go out back and run around on the porch. Which he did. Then he did a little show outside the window as he ran back and forth. He's back to normal.
They (R & L) went to the dentist today - which is like some kind of special event to them. They love it. Sad, but true.
Brady has screamed off and on through the last two nights and my brain is done. I went to church yesterday (for the first time in two months) and felt like I kept talking too much - you know, like I haven't seen many people so I just kept talking?

Jeff went to CA last week and defended his dissertation - so all we have left to that saga are some last edits to the paper. That's a relief!
I mailed off my taxes this morning. That's almost as big of a relief. Now all I need to do is sterilize my house (I won't go into detail about the leaking green diaper crud)and I'm all set. I'm seriously considering not making dinner.
Carson loves the pots and pans drawer
Buds! Brady loves to watch the cars go by out the window
my little nurse
They loved the hospital nursery
Brady loved his (beat-up) reflection
Carson LOVED the train set
Brady loved the drums
Aunt Ginny let them climb in the canoe (that you aren't supposed to climb in) while I was on the phone...
Aunt Ginny took us to the Discovery Museum...
we went in the aviary (we never do with Daddy because it's muggy and sometimes the birds swoop at our heads and he hates that)
Aunt Ginny! She took them on the zoo carousel (which I nearly never spring for)
I love this - Carson gently puts his arm around Brady...then B tries to edge him out of his window spot

Carson was simultaneously pulling Brady's hair and patting his head - hurting and comforting...?
my little ponderer

Okay, people. Here's R & L's pride & joy - a 10" snowman from our tiny snowfall
They (generally) play very sweetly together
classic Brady stance - doing a split
This girl...she is as sweet as she can be. She just said to Ginny "can you hold me? I'm a little bit heavy but not TOO heavy"
heading off to school (homeschool academy)
When I picked Logan up from school his teacher said "apparently your sister is quite the Santa Claus" - he had been telling about all she brought him
