Cap Cutie

Mummi made this hat hoping to have a granddaughter someday. We had a little photo shoot with it. We just love this little girl. Thanks Mummi for the cute hat.

Kaleb loves his neighbor buddy Chase. When they see each outside they start squealing and run to each other. At church they love to hang out together and they hold hands and walk down to Nursery after Sacrament. It really is so cute to see them together. Most of the time it is a love hate relationship. One minute they are doing great then they start beating on each other and cry, but if you separate them they cry cause they want to continue to play.
The other day Chase was over playing and so we got a couple of Spider Man shooting web. They have so much fun together.

4 months old

Our little Kaija is now 4 Months old. I can't believe how time has flown, and how big she is. She is a chunk and is not a little baby anymore. I held the neighbors baby this morning, and it was like picking up a feather compared to Kaija. Hope she has her Dad's metabolism and not mine when she gets older.

3 Reasons Why

I would love to have Kaleb potty trained and I have attempted a few times to start with him. Here are 3 reasons so far why it is not working.

1st reason. HAT:

I try about 6 months or so ago because Kaleb would come up to me and tell me that he is poopie so maybe he is ready?? I buy him this potty at Ikea cause it is dirt cheap. Bring it home and try to get Kaleb to sit on it but he just wears it as a HAT.

2nd reason. ROCKETS:

I try again I think shortly after Kaija is born and I see this Cars potty at Walmart and it is not to expensive and he like the Cars movie so I think yeah he will want to sit on this. So he is excited and he does not want to sit on it but I convince him to. He actually pees cause I had the tub water running and he gets a treat. I get him to sit on it one more time then he likes to pretend it is a ROCKET.
3rd reason. HIS DAD/MASK:

I buy Kaleb cool SpiderMan, IronMan and BatMan underwear and tell him that if he is a big boy he needs to go potty in the toilet and he can wear the fun underwear. Well Mikko shows Kaleb how to do this with the underwear and now he just wants to wear them as a MASKS!! Thanks honey. Oh well we will try again in a few months.

Cute Noises

Finally captured Kaija lauging. I have to take video from the side otherwise she just stops and stares at the camera.

Kaija like to blow bubbles lately. It is really cute. I was trying to get a picture of her blowing the bubbles but of course I pull out the camera and she stops whatever she is doing and just stares at the camera. I wonder if that would work while she is crying. Maybe I will start taking pictures while she cries to see if she will stop. If you click on the photos you can see the frothy spit around her mouth!

Spider Man does Sleep

Went to the Kid to Kid Halloween costume sale with Kaleb and we found a Spider Man costume. It was a little big but Kaleb wanted to wear the mask really bad. I let him and I still had to run two more errands but he would not take off the mask. He got lots of comments and looks from people in the stores. I was surprised he would even wear it. But as you can see he would not take it off and Spider Man fell asleep in the car on the way home. He continued to wear it all day. I hid it that night after he went to sleep!

Strong Men

Labor day weekend we spent most of the time still cleaning and organizing our house since we put it on the market but we got a little bit of fun in. We borrowed Pekka's key and used the pool at his townhouse.
The boys were trying to prove how tough they are.

This is only the second time that we have taken Kaija into the pool she is just too little to be out in the sun.
