Ahhh . . . The Good Life

Colin and Jennsen are getting bigger every day and as exciting as it is, I want them to stop it :)
If I don't let Colin outside enough he becomes a little terror (typical 2 year old), luckily one of the neighbor girls loves to come over and ask him to come play outside with her. I think he even said her name yesterday, Kyra, which is a pretty big deal (I can't be sure if he said it or not because he was crying after he came inside and it was hard to tell, but that's what it sounded like).
Jennsen is a very big girl, and I mean that in every sense of the word. I think she hit another growth spurt recently because she would not stop eating. She is only 6 1/2 months old but she was eating 2-3 jars of solids (with ceral mixed in) and 6 bottles of 6 oz, all in one day! For those of you who don't know, that's alot!
Toward the end of her meal she decided that she wasn't getting it fast enough and grabbed the bowl and started guzzling. She was quite the mess afterward but it was worth it to see how funny she can be. I believe this is carrots or squash that she is eating, we just started green beans though and she's not nearly as enthusiastic about eating them.
Colin hurt his foot the other day, it has a big ol' bruise on it now (running on short little legs makes it difficult to cut corners). To help him stop crying, Ben put him in our bed with his Ipod and some old headphones. It worked, Colin thought it was the coolest thing ever.

No more tears. Just a happy little rockin' roller. My guess is that it's either "Fire Burning" or "Fireflies" that he is listening to. Then again it might be Journey.
