Miss Lola Jane

Lola hasn't been sleeping well since the move. She was such a great baby when it came to sleeping through the night. Theings were great, then we went to Hawaii and moved. Since we were in Hawaii she has been waking up at 1:30 and wanting to get into bed with us. For Brian's sanity, I have been sleeping in Lola's room with her. So last night I tried something new. I put her in the big bed and stayed with her until she fell asleep. Guess what? She slept the entire night!! It was awesome.

Now in case you didn't know, Lola is an artist. Each day she draws amazing things that I get to "find." It is a lot like finding figures in the clouds. She has drawn a surfing dog, snakes, a tree, etc. The drawings are abstract and I love each one. Then she drew something amazing today. I have included a photo of it.



It is very Tim Burton if you ask me- Corpse Bride, anyone? There is a woman's face (in the upper left) that appears to be looking at a blob like baby(lower right). I think it is very telling about her current sleep problem. So, I have named the piece "Seperation Anxiety."
What do you think of the picture? Tell me. What does it say to you? Can you believe this is the work of a 16 month old? I know... she is soooooooo advanced! ;)

Well at school Jones has been learning to paint using both his hands and feet. Which is pretty awesome 'cause then we don't have any mess to clean up at home! He's a regular Picasso really.

That is amazing. Lola doesn't know the glory of color because I am too lazy to clean it up. The one time she was able to use markers, her ear was green for a week.
