As requested, more of my beautiful children...

Of course I am happy to supply our fans with more pictures of my children, as requested by some of you! :o) And also, a random image I call "Still Life With Orange Soda." I don't know why, but I like it.

These are all from March 10. Except for the soda one. That was from January. :o)

Click to see the glorious details. Like the spaghetti in our son's hair.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Easter!

The kids bring you art in celebration of the March holidays. Jackson's is just plain cute. Maggie's struck me that she is having this sort of literacy explosion right now and has to put a few letters on everything, even when it may seem out of place. (Click the image to see the full-size version.)

Maggie's musings

Here are some random quotes collected from Maggie...

  • "Jack gets to do everything and I don't get to do anything."
  • "You know what they say: 'Stars are only yellow.' That's what they're say."
  • "Why do I not..." (As in, "Why do I not get any ice cream?" or "Why do I not have anything to drink?")
  • "American cheese is not real cheese. Did you know that?"
  • "I think Jackson's voice will sound like Daddy's voice when he is big and he is not a baby anymore."
  • "Today I am going to get money and candy...that money you're going to give me." (Me: "It's called allowance.") "Oh. I just call it money."

Pictures and Milestones

Here are a few of Jackson's latest milestones:

  • He has 7 (!) teeth! Holy cow, that is one toothy baby!

  • He is drinking from a sippy cup and eating mostly table food.

  • He has learned that objects have purposes and will try to put socks on his feet or open a book to "read" it.

  • He signs "more" and waves bye-bye and hi.

Here are some recent photos of both of our sweeties.
