Look At Her Go...

Caroline is officially crawling!!! I wish I had a battery for my camcorder, so I could put a video up to show her awesome moves :) For now, here are some pictures of her in action. Jake and I were eating Oreos, so we used the bag of Oreos for her to crawl to. Anything other than one of her toys, is great motivation to crawl super fast!

This is one of my favorite pictures of CC. When it comes up on my computer it is huge and I just love the way she has her right foot pointed and her big eyes are glowing. But then again, Oreos do that to me too.

Look-a-Like or What?

So, the other day Dusty and I were chilling on the couch when we saw this commercial for a movie called Walk Hard. We both looked at each other and started laughing so hard, because we were both thinking that our cute little Caroline resembled the actor in this movie "Dewey Cox". So, being the crazy parents we are, we got out the hair gel, the brush, the blow dryer, a necklace and of course the camera. With all of that we created Dewey Cox's daughter. Whatcha think?

I think Dusty and I only think this because we see her looking confused at 3 am with the crazy big hair.

A Parents Job Description

So, I was being noisy tonight and read this on someone else's blog. (I flipped through so many blogs, I can't even remember where I found it at. So, thanks to the wonderful mother that posted this job description. I would give you credit, but I can't remember where I found your blog?) In my opinion this is the best and most rewarding job! I would not trade it for the world. Being a parent is PRICELESS!
