Today I was just about to do goodnight prayers with Bea when Kelly ran into the darkened room with news that the sunset was beautiful, so she and Bea watched it together. I love those girls.
today I put Sam in his jammies, and while I was taking off his day clothes (or "pre-jammies", if you will) his shirt got stuck on his head. I braced myself for an irritated cry. Nope. Instant hilarity! Sam must have somehow known how silly he looked, because he was really hamming it up.
Today, for the first time I can recall, Bea ate at a Kids' Table and Kelly and I ate at the Adult Table. We were at my co-worker Javier's place and he has two kids, and so they all had dessert on the coffee table while we ate at the big one. It was awesome. And a little surreal.
Today Kelly went to watch some children at church, and I got to hang out with Bea and Sam. We went to the park, and it was a Big Hit.
I won a bug contest at work so I got this sweet comic book! It is full of nerdy jokes. Bea liked it. Maybe she will follow in my nerdy footsteps?
Today I went out into the yard with Bea to pick some mint, and I stopped to take this picture. She ran ahead but when she saw that I had not followed, she turned around and came back to me, then hugged my legs, looked up into my eyes, and said "I'd rather be with you, Daddy." I am not an emotional man, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a little misty right then.
Today I gave Samuel a bath, and Bea wanted to help. Unfortunately she was afraid of the water and of Sam's splashing, so mostly she held the washcloth over the bathtub and squeezed it. It dripped water on Samuel, which he found HILARIOUS.
Sometimes Bea wants to play with things that are designed for actual babies because she sees Samuel playing with them. Tonight, after he went to sleep, she decided to play on the play mat with Kelly. It was adorable.
