Kyle is 10 weeks old

Here are some pictures of Kyle...almost smiling. He does smile at times, but I have been cherishing the moments instead of running for the camera considering the smiles don't come often. Yes, he has been a slow smiler, but I have looked into it, it doesn't mean that he is unhappy...just slow :) (Andrew smiled late too. "Normal" is 6 to 8 weeks).

Three Cheers for Andrew

Last Thursday Andrew has NO time-outs or spankings ALL day! He was a great listener, which doesn't happen all the time. He did put Kyle in a time out because he "wasn't listening," so we had to put him in his place.

We have put into place a couple new rules...if he is going to go on and on crying he has 5 seconds to let it out or he has to cry in his bedroom. It has worked pretty well so far.

Andrew also has something we call "crazy hands." He puts his hands in Kyle's face and waves them around. Now we say..."good-bye crazy hands, hello nice hands," and he does it.

We take one day at a time and lately we have had a lot more good days than bad and that is something to smile about.

We bought a Camper!

We got a steal on a 2002 Jayco Camper and we love it! We took it for its first debut to Babler State Park; it was a beautiful weekend, and the perfect chance to figure everything out. Andrew kept saying "my camper, my camper." I guess he likes it! All four of us slept on the king side pull-out; that was real family bonding! It was also memorable because it was Kyle's first camping trip. We hope he loves camping as much as we do.
