Cuddling with the Boppy.
Passed out on the couch.
Grandma J came to visit this past weekend. She had a very eventful arrival on Friday night but I'll let Tyler expound on that in another post. She was here through Monday morning and got to spend lots of quality time playing with Addilyn and watching Asher sleep. Here she gets an up-close view.
Addilyn has been very active as of late. She's learning all sorts of new things like how to open doors (which means that we get to keep all outside doors locked to prevent her from going for a walk unattended). She's been pretty helpful though over the last couple of weeks and takes great joy in cleaning up. Here she's helping out by entertaining me while I feed Asher.

This is Asher before the bath. He was all wrapped up and quite comfortable.
Here a video of his first bathtime (and his first video if anyone is keeping track).

He sleeps decently at night. He likes to scream a bunch between 8 and 11, but after that he usually sleeps pretty well. I (Tyler) typically will sleep through the one or two mid-night feedings and Erin will get a little bit of a nap in the afternoon, so things are becoming slightly more normal. If you have trouble getting your kid to sleep, I have one word for you (actually it's not technically one word, but the brand name has no spaces) Rockabye(especially try the Pink Floyd and the Led Zeppelin).
The other day Addilyn decided she wanted Asher to sleep in her bed with her. She really expected us to leave him there for the night. It was pretty funny.
Lately Addilyn is getting quite funny. Tonight we had waffles for supper and she proceeded to eat from one of the long sides of her rectangular shaped piece until she had a long flat side and a long jagged edge. This became her train and she drove it all around the table saying "Choo Choo". Awesomeness. I'm also pretty sure that she quoted 30 Rock at dinner. She's fun.
Asher is fun, but in his own special way. For example, I started this post well over an hour ago. I just put Asher in his crib, I thought he was asleep. He's crying again.
Addilyn loves to dance. The song we're dancing to is the new Song of the Now.
And now, a message to Samuel.
Grandma Johnson flies in tomorrow evening. Woo-Hoo. Erin and I are going to run away to a place where it is cold, dark, silent and with soft beds. Mmmmmmmmmm. Or that was my dream, whatever.

We'll start with Addilyn's affinity for his car seat. She loves to play with it. She buckles and unbuckles one of her dolls into it over and over throughout the day. On this day she was a little sleepy and decided to just use it as a rocking seat for herself. She looks so comfy!
Asher sleeping on Daddy over his lunch break.
Both Addilyn and Asher seemed to enjoy bouncing on the ball with Daddy.
Asher struck a pose while sleeping on Mommy.
And here's a video of Addilyn jumping.
