A case of the giggles


The other day, as I was putting Madeline down for a nap, I had an "ah ha" moment.  
I was pulling her curtains closed when I noticed all the light streaming in.
So the nap was delayed.
And instead, I asked the dumplings if I could possibly snap a photo or two, 
as I'm attempting to improve my indoor shooting.

Madeline was interested in other things, 
but I did manage this one shot.

{That big, bright, pink thingy behind her  is her princess tent.}

Caleb thought it would be fun to make faces at me.
Look at his stink eye! lol

Great, now that we got that out of the way and know the lighting is fine,
what happened next?
Well, they hopped on Madeline's bed and snuggled.

Then they got a major case of the giggles.

They love to 
tickle each other, 
squish each other, 
and giggle uncontrollably.

{And yes, Caleb's tongue is blue, courtesy of a jolly rancher he just enjoyed.}

Madeline thought it would be funny to sit on her brother.
Apparently Caleb thought so too.

Ah, these two.
They have so much fun together.

Rolling around on one of their beds in a fit of laughter is an almost daily occurrence.
It warms my heart to hear and see it.

I just found you via Emily's embrace the camera post. Your posts bring pure joy to my heart--and reading how God led you in your adoption journey is so neat. My husband and I both have desired to adopt, even before we met each other. We've always had a desire to adopt after our second biological child. I know it sounds strange, but it's definitely a peace that we've had. Our second sweet boy just came on the scene around 6 months ago and so we are prayerfully asking God to lead us through the next steps as we pursue him and what he has for us concerning adoption. Anywho, really encouraged by reading through your story. thank you : )

Kevin and Michele Friday, May 11, 2012  

What fun they have!!! Such cute pictures! They remind me so much of our L & L... I found them "wrestling" one day, but wasn't fast enough to get a camera! Surely warms a mom's heart to see her kids have such an amazing bond!
