At six months you've really got the rolling thing down.  You started rolling front to back and back to front and now you can go on either side.  You've figured out you can get places this way ... like over to your brother's car that you want to put in your mouth.     You took your first plane ride using your brand new passport.  It was a doozy.  Quito to Atlanta to Chicago and about 36 hours later Chicago to Boise.  You much prefer to sleep in your bed than in ...

Our maid is, I think, horrified by the ways we let these two kids interact but Eden doesn't mind a little rough housing and I like to be able to encourage Canaan in his relationship with his sister.  I don't want to be a house of "No's" for him, of which there are already many, where his perception is that his sister is off limits.  So as long as she's happy and game for it, we'll let him love her how does it best!                     &...

    Eden,   Somehow you became five months old in the blink of an eye.  You went from being a little, snuggly newborn with not a care in the world other than a warm place to sleep to a delightful little, still snuggly baby who loves to be apart of whatever the family is doing.  At dinner time now you don't want to sit in your little chair on the floor because you can't see anything.  But you're happy to be in the bumbo on top of the table where you can watch your br...

Just for the records, I need to make note that Eden rolled over for the first time last Saturday (about 4 months, 1 week).  Her dad saw the whole thing in live action since I was washing dishes and he had Canaan on the potty with Eden right between us on her ladybug/flower activity mat.  She was pretty surprised to find herself on her back but did it two more times before rolling a little too hard and knocking her head on the tile.     We made a little bit too big of a deal o...
