  • Mica has been pulling this thing where he gets up ever so quiet, and comes to find us. All the sudden I look up and there is Mica. Last night after the kids were in bed, I was wrapping Christmas gifts (I don't think he saw anything), and I looked up and there is Mica. He did this to me 2 other times: 1. I was awake, feeding Isaak one morning. I look over to the side of the bed, and there's Mica. 2. I was in the kitchen doing dishes, Mica was down for a nap, poof, there's Mica. He scares the crap out of me. The boy is usually loud, so it throws me for a loop.

Busy Bee's

  • We've been extremely busy at our house lately. I've been baking cookies, making almond bark candy, and getting ready for all the holiday events.
  • I finally got a holiday photo of the boys I like. I had to do a little Photoshop work. Mica was cut out and placed into a photo with Isaak (who was already smiling). Mica is at such a hard age to get to smile. He has his tongue hanging out of about half the photo's. On the back of the cards this is what it says:

You Rock Baby

  • Isaak is rocking out with his Baby Legs, leg warmers.

Christmas Photos

  • We're trying to get the perfect Christmas picture. We decided to go with Isaak being in a package because he's our BEST present this year. We still need to take another round of photo's. Isaak either has his hands in his mouth, grumpy, or Mica won't smile.
