I dare you not to smile

`Sometimes you catch yourself smiling stupidly at your computer screen when no one else is around and you can't help but laugh at yourself. If you watch these videos, I have a feeling that will happen to you now. So grab a friend (or kid) so you can smile together.
Here's a video of my oldest son that may explain why he has such a funny face in ALL the pictures we take of him. I'm trying to get him to say the word "amazing" (because it makes me laugh, he pronounces it "mexican.") and he takes it upon himself to give me his very best smile, which is of course what you are supposed to do when mom pulls out the camera. Right?


Next is the little guy, smiling away at the camera. It's not funny, it's just so sweet that I find it impossible not to smile back at him.

I know, I know. Everyone thinks their kids are the cutest, and I'm no exception. But you have to agree, it's hard not to smile.

A bump on the noggin


Well, Asher likes to play, and play hard. Despite this we have managed to somehow avoid injury thus far in his life. Until today. He was feeling a bit giddy, and in a fit of glee (for his life is really quite wonderful) he slammed his head into what he thought was the couch cushion, but was in fact the wooden cross bar that runs along the back side of the couch. The result? His first bruise, and boy was it a doozie! (The picture doesn't do it justice.) It's swollen pretty badly and Riley can't help but call him "klingon boy" because of it's location. But he was tough! Even when he accidentally bumped it into the edge of the kitchen table later this afternoon. I no longer wonder why they call them "toddlers." Despite the clumsiness, he's lots of fun, and so is his brother, who happens to be getting HUGE.
Asher 22 months, Grayson 8 weeks
