New Baby Pictures!

We had our 20 week ultrasound today and saw a squirmy, healthy baby. He or she weighs in at about 3/4 pound and looks great. Here are a few pictures of the newest Schneider-in-training.

Here we have the big brother in training "rocking" his baby Elmo in a dump truck. Gotta use what you have, right?

What's In A Name?

After much coaxing, pleading, and promises of playing Cars Movie with him, I've finally gotten Christopher to start practicing letters. We worked on two the first week and three last week and this week. On Monday, he wrote his name (well, the first part of it) all by himself for the first time.
Needless to say, Mommy was very pleased and Christopher wanted to know if we could play tractor tippin' now. I have a feeling I'm going to be the homework Nazi in a few years...

LOOONG Ago Legoland

Many moons ago, back in May, we took a day trip to Legoland while we were in San Diego. The boys loved it and it was perfect for the under 8 crowd. They did have some stuff for the bigger kids, but we mostly skipped that. Here are a few pictures from our adventure.

It was downright chilly when we got there and predictably, Christopher was in a funk about it

Dinosaurs seemed to make things better, though

Digging for dinosaurs! I think this was their favorite part of the whole day and we came back at least 3 times.

Standing on the brown squares made the fountain start and that instrument play music. Christopher thought this was the neatest thing.

Taking a little break to build legos, of course!

Cruisin' with Dad

Fascinated by the saxophone, again.

Christopher got to drive his own Lego car! He made it almost the whole way around in the 2 or 3 minutes they had...

I promise we'll do something interesting enough to take pictures soon!
