This is how you undo your car seat buckle so you can escape.
This is how you hide in a really small place (the bottom of Daddy's closet) and scream "Mommy Mommy Mommy" at the top of your lungs until she searches the house and finds you.
This is how you wash the dishes. Try not to get too much water on the floor. Mommy doesn't really like that. This is how you clap your hands when you sing She was actually singing to him--"If you're happy and know it..."
Couple more of the kids.
He sleeps like this all the time-I think he's going to be rolling over soon!
Natalie and her pals Carter and Quinn. Carter is moving this weekend-we're sad but at least they'll be on the island so we can still play together.
Hope you enjoyed Natalie's lessons. She's very determined about the way certain things should be done and doesn't mind telling you about it... maybe she has some teacher in her?? :)

I had a baby shower for my friend, Jess, yesterday. Brian was going to take the kids out but ended up watching them plus Jess's 15 month old, Carter, in the back room. When we went to "release them" this is what we found: Amazing what 2 kids can do, huh? (the other two boys were at the shower.) He had it all cleaned up before we could get back there to help! Everyone was in awe...what a guy I have! :)
Natalie thought it was pretty cool that all the chairs were away from the table (for the shower) so she parked herself under it for awhile.
Go Penn State!

With Jess and Carter (why did I wear white pants to a pumpkin patch?!)
Some more of Blake since he slept through the whole thing.
She wanted him to have something to look at too. So thoughtful. :)

Getting ready to take the PT test (two mile run, and timed sit-ups and push-ups) Bri is right in the middle of the front row.
Reflexive fire--you jump up from behind barricades and shoot at targets
Urban orienteering--they had a time limit to plot and find specific points. Bri's really good at this... we never get lost. :)
They try to make it as realistic as possible as to how it would be in Iraq. This guy gave Brian the coordinates for his next point.
Hand to hand combatitives
I know that he did a lot more than these pics capture but it gives you an idea. I'm so proud of him. It's huge to have been able to participate in this! Way to go, babe! :)

He called again this morning. They're done!! They got to do a lot of fun things for the mystery events including getting out of a flipped humvee, clearing rooms, giving IVs, and hand to hand combatatives. They actually wrestle each other and "choke out." Yikes...but he says it's safe. Now it's all over and they can relax. :) We'll let you know the results on Monday!!
Here's some pictures of the kids the past couple days.
Trying out the playdough with her best bud and neighbor, Carter.
I love that Adam is born now... we can gang up on the girls at Christmas together! :)
