Holidays part II

Along with all of the fun holiday festivities, while in Florida we managed to use our annual pass to Sea World one last time. Calvin and Noah absolutely love all of the beautiful animals there, especially Shamu.





Although my siblings were forced into going again- they're more into the roller coaster theme parks- and tried to act unimpressed all day...
I still managed to catch them enjoying themselves:
Besides the animals, Sea World has also introduced Calvin and Noah to cotton candy- a life changing experience for them.
Calvin made a huge step forward in facing his fears and actually rode on the merry-go-round this time. (In the past we've waited in line for thirty minutes, only to leave once it's finally our turn with a sobbing Calvin- so this was a pretty big deal.) You can see the pride in his accomplishment.

While Noah would be all too willing to ride on anything he could waddle his way onto, he was left to just amuse the passersby with his few, fail-proof crowd pleasers...

the one-handed peek-a-bubba

and the "I know where my nose is"
And besides all these great times, one of my favorite things was getting to meet my dear friend's new baby girl. Here is beautiful Isabelle and a very happy Calvin. Don't you think he needs a little sister? :)

YES, YES, YES, I think they both need a little sister. Are you trying to tell us something?

It is about time you give me a niece! I want to do princess books!

Settle down here, let's be rational. Definitely no girl on the way, just Carolee's daydreaming.

Hi there! I love that peekaboo and nose shot! Your camera skills make me jealous :) Miles is at the stage where he flutters his fingers at everyone and says "hi!" It's interesting to see who does or does not respond to him. Wouldn't we all love to have some more girls in the family ;)

Yup. Totally agree. Rb...who am I going to dress up with tutus and high heels? You obviously had a problem when I did it to Noah. Er- or have I not mentioned that? :D
