Can you guess who these are?

Eden and Andrew got some little digital cameras for Christmas in their stocking. I've finally gotten around to figuring out how to get them to talk to our computer. These are some pictures they took this evening.

8 months already!?!

I can't believe its been 8 months! Where did the time go?

He likes to make this kinda cheesey wrinkly-face grin when he thinks we want a smile. He also likes to talk to himself in the mirror and chew on the sides of this toy. Thanks Grandma!

A couple weeks ago, he was lifting this basket over himself and then pushing it back down again. Of course as soon as he saw me with the camera, he stopped to grin at me.

His other recent accomplishments include:
-Rolling over and over to get where he wants to go (well, sometimes he gets where he wants to go). He's our first baby to really roll around like that.
-Really sleeping through the night, sometimes. He's been going 9-10 hours (most nights) for a little while, but lately he's surprised us with a couple of 12 & 13 hour stretches! Yay Jakey!!! His daytime sleeping leaves a lot to be desired on a lot of days, I think he's just having a hard time working around the family (kindergarten) routine. But, I really am grateful for the night-time sleeping, I'm starting to feel more like myself finally! I feel a little bad bragging when some of your babies aren't there yet, but there is light at the end of the tunnel for you too!

My little girl is growing up!

Eden lost her first tooth!!! She kept telling me that it was loose, but I didn't really believe her. Then one day she woke up with her tooth on her tongue! Luckily, she didn't swallow it and the tooth fairy remembered to bring her two quarters on the first night her tooth was under her pillow. And she even let Eden keep the tooth as a momento.

She also recently mastered the skill of tieing her own shoes. I still double knot them before she goes to school. But, one day the teacher made them take one shoe off for an activity and she tied it back up all by herself!

She also insists on actually reading her scripture at family scripture time. I don't know why we didn't think about it sooner. For a long time we just had the kids just copy us reading a verse for their "turn."

She's also become a lot more helpful in ways that I want her to be helpful (instead of just the ways that she wants to be helpful).

We love you, Eden!

This is something Andrew has been into lately. (I wouldn't want him to suffer from "middle-child syndrome".) His latest most favorite thing is transformers and we finally got a video from Netflix for him. He's watched it a 'few' times, but what he really likes to do is play just the title sequence and theme song, and he tries to match his 'moves' with whatever autobot is being spotlighted at the moment. I wanted to cut this down, but the funny stuff (I thought) was at the beginning and end, and I don't know how to cut out the middle portion of a video. It's still only 25 seconds.
