Hanging with Mom and Dad

Last week when we went to Olive Garden for Colin’s birthday, Carina fell asleep in the car on the way home, ruining her bedtime.  She was up quite late with us, a very rare event in her life.  She had our full attention and loved it.  Chad doesn’t get to see her nearly enough during the week, so he loved it too.

*42Carina already knows to to fit into our family – she teases IMGP7188us like crazy.

Lately, while I prepare everything for a diaper change, she swipes the diaper real fast and then takes off running and laughing.  She always thinks it is hilarious to stand on the edge of the couch or the stairs and act like she is going to walk off.  It drives Ollie crazy and he runs over, grabs her to protect her from falling, and yells for me every time, all while she lets out her belly laughs.  That evening she was pulling that stunt with Chad, going so far as to step over the edge, knowing he would grab her.  Notice her little sunburn from the park that morning.

Here is a little video of Chad teasing Carina back.  She is blurry, but you can tell by her face that she gets a little freaked out for half of a second.

We love it when any of our kids get to stay up separate from the others- especially the baby. Sometimes Claire will wake up around 9pm when I'm just finishing up a show or project and I don't want to go to bed and I don't want to spend 20 minutes getting her back to sleep - so we'll just have her hang out with us for a while and it's always so fun. I love that video. Can't wait to see you guys!

It is fun to get some one on one time with my kids. Tomorrow I get to go on a field trip with lily at school and she is so excited!
