from a whisper to a shout

i don't know about the other moms out there, but ofttimes i find myself raising two different children. one whom we know is summer and the other we lovingly call "demon baby."

as a case in point, here is a clip of our little banshee as she wakes up from her nap:

and here she is again waking up from an obviously more pleasant nap; please note the good use of her "inside" voice:

unlike with, say, the incredible hulk, what brings out summer's inner screecher is yet to be clearly determined. just the other day, i was eating lunch at the byu museum of art with my brothers when all of a sudden and quite unprovoked, summer let out an at-the-top-of-her-lungs, blood curdling scream and proceeded to throw a first class fit. naturally, the college students all quieted and stared to see who was making such a monstrous noise.

okay that crying one, made me totally baby hungry! I'm glad I've got one in the oven because I can almost smell her sweet little baby breath as she screams through my computer!

yeah - luke has been doing that just the past 3 days. weird. and we have no idea why. just when he wakes up from naps - he screams at the top of his lungs and after about 10 mintues calms down but not from anything we do - it's like he just decides he's done. and it kinda seems like he is screaming AT us. he definitely has a dr. jeckle mr. hyde type thing going on.

That first video, she looks like, "what the heck, woman? Pick ME UP!" Both are very cute.
