This pony will soon be too small. Soren is able to dismount on his own and has begun to handle the reins.

The Getaway

Fiona started out as a happy child.

But then she met Soren and he told her tales of fun times beyond the fence.

One set of wheels, one shirt, one pair of pants -- they make their getaway.

The adorable pumpkin

Fiona was a pumpkin for Halloween. Next year we will have a family costume and everyone will dress up as part of a champion dodgeball team (but no spandex for me).

Fiona is very happy. Perhaps being the second child, she appreciates the attention that she gets because she doesn't get as much as the first born. She is quick to smile and giggle.

Soren found an easy way to meet women

Soren is very comfortable on a horse. He can't wait to get his own pony, but is willing to share for now.

Soren's new pet

Our neighborhood is full of spiders. Soren spotted this large one on the ceiling. It was soon in a jar and on its way to the science table at preschool. Soren isn't afraid of spiders. Nor is he afraid to watch Harry Potter and he loves the large spiders and snake in the movies. He is afraid of vacuums, but only when they are switched on.Posted by Picasa

I believe I can fly

Soren loves to fly high into the air. It is quite a workout. Posted by Picasa

Fiona continues to improve her commando crawl and is able to leave the room when her father isn't paying attention. Fortunately, Soren watches after her.

Soren with JJ. He rides, feeds and cleans up after JJ. We pretend that JJ is his horse to keep his mother from buying a pony for Soren. Posted by Picasa

Soren is still tall

He is 42" tall and 35 months old. He is still skinny and enjoys racket sports. Anything that he can swing at a ball is a racket. He also enjoys throwing balls high until they get stuck on the roof.

Fiona has begun to crawl with her arms. She can get her hips off of the ground when she isn't moving, but has yet to crawl on her hands and knees. She loves to watch Soren and Soren loves to mimic her screams.

We are back

The kids keep on growing up much too fast. Soren plays nice with Fiona and makes her laugh. His potty skills are superb. He is ready and willing to go to the bathroom anywhere and anytime whether standing or sitting. Recently he has been adding fertilizer to our lawn (not the grass that Fiona is on above). Fiona outgrew her bedside crib and has moved into a much larger one. Soren is about to move into a twin bed. Unprompted, he said 'I like horses'. I suspect brainwashing. Fortunately, he said 'I like baseball' the next day. We have begun to play baseball. He enjoys pitching more than hitting.
