Julianna's New Hair-Do

Here is Julianna's new haircut.

Julianna tried her infant hand at hair design with scissors this morning before church - and was so proud, she told Daddy she "didn't even poke herself!" Mommy was hysterical ("You're scaring me, Mom!"), much to her (mom's) shame. Its just hair. But look how much she cut off! A visit to Great Clips this afternoon resulted in short hair, but not fixed hair. Julianna doesn't seem fazed at all, though after a few lengthy discussions reminding her that we leave hair-cutting to other people, hopefully, she has learned her lesson. "After" pictures to follow.

Aidan loves to find and carry around smallish things, which probably accounts for all those missing items that have disappeared in the last 8 months or so (we never lost this much with Juli!). We have a magnetic board low on the wall in the kitchen with alphabet and number magnets and Aidan loves to play with these. (He likes to point at letters everywhere and say "B!" He counts "two, free, two, free".) He also likes to carry the letters around, one in each hand (and eventually LEAVE them around). I noticed recently that he has a pattern to which two letters he chooses, which I think is fascinating. He picks two letter that look similar - A & V, C & U, M & W, O & Q, and most recently, P & R. It never ceases to amaze and amuse me that little brains are so capable and organized!

Julianna has just this last week begun to draw "people". Here is her artwork and its interpretation. Isn't it great!?!

Julianna's 4th birthday - celebrated at Grandma and Papa Rosendahl's
- and later celebrated at Grandma and Papa Gibson's

Happy 4th Birthday, Julianna!!

New Pictures from a New Camera

We have a new camera now, so I have to post some new pictures. (This is especially for you, Dad!)
I love these goofy faces Aidan makes! Little munchkin Ella is a master at the army crawl - and loves to be where the other kids are.
