coffee time and cute chubby legs.

This is the cup I found on Elliot's dresser this morning filled with black coffee and lots of sugar. Elliot's been waking up really early and getting into stuff really quietly. (like coffee and the computer) I told him I didn't want him having coffee, especially before school, and he said he'll have it when he comes home. Um, no he won't.... Usually we buy 1/2 caff and let the kids have a little with milk, but this time all they had was Colombian. There is a big difference. Last night Elliot had some after school because Misty and I were visiting and I made a pot. He bounced and chattered non-stop. I'm lucky not to be in the mental hospital, he was driving me mad. Good thing I caught it, or he'd have been off the walls at school.
So, how cute is his "I love coffee" face? You can't tell in the picture, but he crosses his legs under the table and swings them back and forth.

Trae has coffee (milk with a few drops of coffee) every morning...today we were out of milk, so he got whipped cream.


Archers legs were so chubby and cute to begin with, but now they are downright irresistible. I love this toe thing he does all the time now. I'm thinking he'll be rolling everywhere soon...
