Our Life in Pictures

Kenna is smiling! This is the only photo I have so far of her cute little grin, but she is consistently smiling at us throughout the day. I love it! Now I can't wait to hear her giggle for the first time!

Tobin is growing more and more fond of Kenna every day. He has gone from saying he hates babies to telling Kenna "I love you" multiple times each day. He loves to put his head next to hers when she's lying on a blanket on the floor and smile at her while repeating, "Kenna, Kenna, Kenna!" (At least she'll learn her name fast!)

Charis and Arden are forever finding creative costumes around here. The characters of the day in this picture are gypsies. Don't ask me how they came up with that--as far as I know, we haven't referenced gypsies since last November when they read the story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame (Disney style, from the library).

Charis is still in love with her baby sister. She asks to hold her many times each day, and I try to accommodate her request as often as possible. The only thing that bothers her is when Kenna spits up! She loves to make up songs to sing to her, and she coos and talks to her in such a sweet little voice. I love listening to her--makes me think she'll be a great mommy herself one day!

We call this pose of Kenna's "The Thinker." Looks just like the sculpture, don't you think?!

Arden playing his "drums." He's been inspired by his friend Kyle, who plays drums and let the kids play on his drumset when we were at their house for Easter dinner.

The day The Box came...our new Sonlight materials! Charis and Tobin are thrilled!

I was showing Tabitha the pictures of Kenna and she said "Nenna". It was so cute.

Cute pictures! I can't believe how big your kids are getting: it seems like just yesterday you were leaving Idaho with little Charis.

The pictures are precious! I'm so glad that all the kids are coming around to how sweet babies are, LOL! Love the gypsy costumes--we have really creative costumes around here on a regular basis as well. Who knows where they come up with these things?! : )

Beautiful pictures! I think Kenna looks like Tobin in the one of her smiling.
