Hard to rest

Unless we are out running errands, miles has such a hard time slowing down at home to nap. He'd much rather play and then crash about 4:30 or 5. Sometimes I purposely run errands during nap time to ensure he gets a good one. Of course that will all change when we put him in his big boy car seat. He's almost completely outgrown his infant carrier. His ability to sleep so well in it is the only thing that has kept me from switching sooner. 

He cracked me up today while trying to fall asleep for a nap. I told him he needed to lay down and close his eyes. This is what I got: 


Finally, he slept....such a sweet little face!

I found the game Kerplunk at a local thrift store in perfect condition for $1! It's the kids' favorite game right now. Even Miles loves to play. He likes to lose because it means more balls (marbles) fall when he pulls a stick. The girls are perfectly fine with this. Winning is a big deal.

Molly: my baby's name is Caroline but her nickname is carol.
Sophie: my baby's name is hosanna and her nickname is hose.
Molly: like the garden hose?
Sophie: (kinda laughing) no


Molly brought home her pizza certificate from the library for completing the summer reading program. It's for a local pizza establishment and Sophie was remembering Molly received Pizza Hut coupons for the book-it program last year. She couldn't remember the name though and kept asking when Molly was getting one from huts peas! Ha ha

Miles came upstairs carrying a ball in a pan with a spoon saying, "cook ball". He then proceeded to take the ball, place it on the spoon and play baseball.
