Duck Face

Have you ever seen the duck face on Cole? I was just looking through my pictures and came across these and had to laugh. He does the duck face when he is getting angry, and it probably doesn't help that I laugh at him...but come on...it's funny looking! These pictures aren't actually of the duck face, but they are close enough to give you an idea of what it looks like. He actually has a hurt lip in these pictures. I don't know how he got it, you'd have to ask grandpa. This first picture is accurate in how he is normally feeling at the time of the duck face: angry.The next picture is accurate in the pouty/duck face. Just put the two of them together...without a swollen lip.And just randomly because I can....Cole isn't feeling 100% and so he wakes up at night, but not really wakes up. Normally a drink of water will calm him down, but tonight he was not awake all the way and obviously distressed. I asked if he wanted water and he screamed yes, and since I didn't want him to wake up Caden I asked if he wanted to come with me to get it. He screamed yes again. So I get him a drink in the kitchen but he doesn't want to drink it in the kitchen, so I take him back to bed and try to give it to him and he's crying about something. Finally I figure out that he just wanted the cup to be on the floor. He never did take a sip of the water, but once I put it on the floor he just laid down and pulled the blanket over himself. What a funny kid.

And again, just because I can...the other night at the hotel Dan and I were watching TV or something and the kids were sleeping. Kember bolts up right and starts lecturing Caden in her sleep. It was the funniest thing ever. I asked Dan if I talked in my sleep and he said no, but then I got to thinking...how would he know? He'd sleep right through it. So I wonder if it's hereditary, or if she was just really really frustrated with Caden in her dreams.

I don't remember you talking in your sleep, but Zoie does it sometimes.

Aw, such a cute duck face. :) It must frustrate kids so much when we laugh at them when they're upset about something. Someday, they too will understand.
I do weird things in my sleep - or I used to. Not so much anymore. Joey has once or twice but I've never heard either of my kids talk in their sleep.

My kids yell at each other in their sleep...sometimes at the same time while they are both asleep! Very noisy!
