Oh the things that make us laugh

At what age do kids stop saying cute or funny things? I hope never. Here's some things the girls said yesterday that got us rolling:

Kawai (7 yrs old): We were discussing some pants she got as hand-me-downs, and Kawai asked me, "What does hammy mean anyway?"

Mana (4.5 yrs old): After finishing up some popcorn, Mana brought a handful of unpopped kernels to us and asked "Can we plant a popcorn tree?"

Alani (2 yrs old): After getting hurt, she drank some water and then told me "This water feel me better"

The Baby Whisperer

Keanu got to drink my milk from the bottle yesterday. No wonder the midwife called Robb "the baby whisperer" at the hospital.

Shell Beach sunset pie, etc.

Kawai and I love it when he makes his lips like this.

Thank you C. and E. for the awesome birthday earrings!!!

My two blue eyeds (for now at least). (And why does the blog always flip pictures of Mana??? It doesn't do it to anyone else. I give up.)

Who are you and what are you doing?

Practice with a new baby

Which one is the baby?

The 2 year olds

Here they are actually looking like they are sharing and getting along. They do it really well, some of the time.....I had to steal this from my sister's blog.
