In the last week, Kale has really been working hard on this new sound/face. He cracks me up! He mostly does it if I blow lightly in his face - he has to do it back at me and it usually comes out like a raspberry without the tongue. Gotta love it!

By the way, that's Atlas' annoying yipping in the background (yes, the big one), he wants to come inside. Haley's voice has some cameo moments in the 15 seconds also.

Arts & Crafts Time with the Roberson's

So we decided to do a little Arts & Crafts with the kids. We had some finger paints, and an end roll of newspaper (If this is something you're interested in, most local newspapers keep the little bits at the end of the newsprint roll and sell it for charity, you just have to go into the paper and ask). We started by tracing Haley on the paper, then we used a stamp pad to give her fingers and feet, and finally we stripped her down and let her go at it with the finger paints.

Then we thought we couldn't just leave it at Haley, so we traced Kale out also, but he really wouldn't be able to grasp the whole finger painting idea and Haley had such a good time with it, we thought we would just let her paint her brother - she LOVED it and he thought it was hilarious! Then we just let him roll around on the traced image of himself. Too cute.

The final steps of the project will be to cut the outline out, and add a computer printed version of their faces to the head. A fun way to create a keepsake of how the kids are at this moment in time.

As promised, I finally got video of Haley. She says all kinds of things in this so make sure you have your sound turned up.
