our trip to mississippi

The trip was great. The kids were great. The flights were short and all the luggage fit in both the car we left in D.C. and the car that met us in Mississippi. Isaac was excited to finally ride in the airplane. He ended up falling asleep on the first flight and was getting a bit antsy on the 2nd, but all in all, he was a good traveler. Juliet is at a great age to travel. She will smile at almost anyone who smiles at her. Tim and I did fine, too!

Isaac enjoyed his Handy Manny Color Wonder book from the Toole's!
Juliet is the belle of any ball with her personalized bloomers from the Brown's!
Here is Tim playing with Juliet and Isaac during the layover in Atlanta when everyone got out of their pj's and into their day clothes.

Before leaving Virginia

We had some time to just be with each other outside. At 6 months old, Juliet has quite the personality and I feel like we are getting a taste of the teenage talk-back a little early. She makes herself loudly known if she is unhappy in the slightest. Her expressions are developing, but if you keep her happy, she has a way of making you feel like you are the coolest person EVER. You see my quandry in trying to raise a baby who is content in all circumstances! Well, I'm failing at this point. Enjoy the pics. Remember that you can click on each pic to see it in higher definition. Just remember to hit the back button to get back to the blog.
Oh, I was also able to capture Isaac and Juliet's first fight over a toy object!!! I realize this is only the beginning! And, Juliet is getting around pretty well. She is crawling, but still sometimes falls over!

Preparing for halloween

Isaac is going to be Indiana Jones for halloween 2009. we found a great cowboy set that has a few items that Indiana would always have. Isaac couldn't let one night pass him by without trying out all the different accoutrements. The best part is that he is in his underwear. I'm pretty sure this is a norman rockwell moment. Juliet got in on some of the fun as well.

Photos from the Chatman's

Well, the clips in the last post were at our house before we moved. The pictures in this post are from the first couple of weeks here at the Chatman house. They are great hosts. We have still not gotten the go ahead from Tim's work to make any arrangements. This adds to the stress level of doing anything. We are just trying to enjoy the children as Juliet leaps through her new abilities and Isaac works on his potty training (less enjoyable). We hope you enjoy the pictures. In case you didn't know, you should be able to click on any picture to get a bigger view of it.

I'll share with you, mama...

We're in the car headed to IHOP for dinner.
Isaac: "Mama, are you going to sit next to me and my pancakes?"
Mom: "Isaac, I'd love to sit next to you, but I don't really care about sitting next to your pancakes."
Isaac: "I'll share them with you, mama"
Mom: "You will?"
Isaac:"A bite"..........."A piece"............."A little piece".........."like this" [holds up his hand where is thumb and index finger are pinched to together as if holding a crumb]
"I'll share with you, mama".

***************

We're in the car and it begins to rain.
Isaac: "I'll sing the song.....Rain, rain, go away, come again another day"
[waits, looks to the sky, and listens...]
Isaac: "Did it work?"
[still raining]
Isaac: "Nope. I'll try again....Rain, rain, go away, come again another day"
[waits and it happens to stop raining]
Isaac: "IT WORKED, now we can go to the park".
