Ali was convinced that Josiah wanted "a book about sheep" for his birthday. She went to the bookstore with me and picked out "Sheep in a Jeep". She had to give to Josiah first thing in the morning. He held on to it for most of the day.

Here Dad, try some cake. Mom says it's banana chocolate chip.

Hmmm, what is this on my hands? It sure tastes good.

Maybe I can suck the last bits of chocolate off my plate.


Yes, yes, a year has passed. Josiah is now one!

How to pick a pumpkin

Check each one to see if you can pick it up.

Pick up every possible pumpkin, even if you think you have one picked out.

Consult with your best friend.

Rejoice when you find the right one!

Teach your brother to do the same.

The Terrible Twos are Nothing Compared with Three

Daddy: Ali, go ask mommy if dinner's ready yet.
Ali: (shouts) Mommy, is dinner ready yet?
Mommy: It's almost ready.
Daddy: Ask Mommy how soon.
Ali: How soon!!!
Daddy: Ask Mommy how many more minutes it will be before dinner.
Ali: That will be twenty more dollars.
Daddy: (Can't talk anymore he's laughing so hard.)


Ali: I'm going to step over here, and then (as she's crouching to jump off the toilet) this Daddy, it's gonna be sweet!

Anna: (on multiple occasions lately) Guess what YOUR CHILD did today!
