Ain't nobody got time for that.
We haven't had snow, but temperatures have been cold enough to make being outside pretty miserable. While we try to get out for at least one walk and/or bike ride a day, we spend way too much time inside the house.
Introducing Amelia, the stander.
She's so good, she can even do it while taking my picture.
Truthfully, she's still gaining her confidence and standing completely on her own happens rather by accident. Mostly when she lets go of something without thinking about it or when we prop her in to position and leave her there.
Not to be left out...
"Mommy, take my picture now!"
Oh goodness, he makes me dress him like this 10 times a day. Then I made the mistake of playing the I'm-going-to-put-Kitty-somewhere-and-you're-going-to-rescue-him game one time, so now I'm forced to play it every time he's in costume.
Little Monkey has been working diligently on learning his letters. Finally.
Me: D is for Daddy. We're going to draw a picture of him.
Will: You want me to draw a picture of Mike?
Looks just like him!
I painted the kids' playroom granny smith apple green. A shade so unlike me, I still don't know how I feel about it. But I do know how I feel about painting, so it's going to be sticking around for awhile. I'm hoping the room will come together soon and I'll fall in love.
Amelia loves her freedom. We have gates blocking the stairs, and we've had long talks with Will about making sure the lid on the toilet is closed (because someone is a huge fan of water). Girlfriend is all over the place.
We seem to spend a lot of time in Amelia's room lately. Will is my shadow and likes to help me get her up from naps, change her diapers and clothes...
He also likes to sleep with her 'for pretend.'
We did manage to get out a little bit this week.
The bounce house...
And a special outing for breakfast.
Bring on spring. We're beyond ready.
