Alisea gets her ears pierced and Ethan outsmarts dad

We decided to go ahead and get Ali's ears pierced. I think if she had any hair, we'd have waited awhile, but the poor kid still doesn't even have enough for a little bow. She only cried for a second (okay, maybe more like 4 minutes) but she seems to be no worse off for it. Anyway, they look so cute and pretty. Now, if she's not wearing pink ruffles, maybe admirers will guess she's a girl. She's still not really walking. She teases us with 2-3 steps, but then goes right back to crawling. I think it's a patience thing, which we are discovering she doesn't have. Wobbling steps just take too long.

Kids are so funny. Ethan has a way of getting the best of his daddy. Today, we had a little picnic at the park and Ethan wasn't eating his sandwich. He wanted the chocolate teddy grahams instead. So, Casey says to him after much argument.. "Ethan, I will give you the world, but first you have to eat your sandwich." Referring to the food we had around, And Ethan replies, as serious as can be, "but I don't want to eat the world." We got a good laugh over that one.

Hope everyone had a pleasant Memorial Day, and had a chance to reflect on what the many men and women service members over the years have sacrificed so that we can enjoy our wonderful freedoms.
