Rylan loves to scream

Rylan has the highest pitched scream of an baby I've ever heard, and he loves to scream. I decided to record his screaming because, as annoying as it is now, I know that 20 years from now, I will wish I could remember what Rylan's scream sounded like.

Cole Peters Pan

The latest obsession in our house is Peter Pan. As a Pan fan myself, I admit to kickstarting their interest by showing them the classic Mary Martin version of this play, but Cole is the one who's taken it to obsession level. I think he wore this outfit for at least part of every day last week.

Rylan can sit up...and watch TV!

While getting our house ready to sell, I have let my children watch far too much TV. Today, I even stuck Rylan in front of the tube. He sure looked cute with his eyes glazed over while watching Baby Einstein.

I just read...Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch My husband, who is a huge Neil Gaiman fan, recommended this book to me. After I read the first few chapters, he asked if it was too Douglas Adams-ish for me since he knows I am not a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fan. My reply was, "Not yet. Does that mean it's going to get stupid?" Since I've now finished the book, I can say that the humor in Good Omens is very similar to Hitchhikers, but it never gets stupid. There are no aliens with multiple heads in this one - just average humans with average flaws and human-like angels and demons. The humor was entertaining without being over the top, and the writing was fast-paced and imaginative. A very creative reimagining of the Apocalypse

Each at four months. Any resemblance?

Eli practices the "guitar"

I bought Cole a t-ball set for his birthday last November, and it immediately morphed into musical equipment. The bat became a guitar, and the t-ball stand became a microphone stand. I believe it's been used for t-ball about two times since we got it. Other items that have become guitars: sticks, spatulas, spoons, vacuum attachments...The funny thing is, they both have toy guitars.

Also, for some reason, Eli likes to take off his pants when he pretends to be a rock star.
