Calli added the word "up" last week to her mama-dada-vocabulary and she can wave "bye bye" (even if it is 10 seconds after daddy goes out the door). Here's her first sign.


And here's a little of Grant's life.

snow walk

We did our snow walk! Tim made a sledding hill - for himself - Grant wouldn't go. I dragged Calli in the sled propped up in her Bumbo seat. It was a perfect little car. Although, she did tip out on her face once. Head in the snow, feet in the air. Oh my so funny and also not...because I try not to be the meanest mom on the planet. I plucked her out and brushed her off. She wasn't fazed a bit. Just ready to roll once again. Man, she's hilarious! It's starting to look like she's the opposite of her brother. She's a rough and tumble dirt eater.


Well we got covered with a good 16 inches of snow over the last three days. Tim's bird feeder is the only refuge for the fat doves and tiny sparrows flocking to the yard for food.

We're thinking about going sledding behind our back yard but at the moment we have two kids that don't like sledding so we may just pull them along in the sled for a snow walk. This is pretty nice to have snow for the week but I'm going to want to go running outside soon so.....let's just keep it winter for a week.

During bath time tonight it dawned on my soul - it may be a lot of work but two kids are better than one. And who knows, maybe someday three will be better than two?

a good january

I'm sad it's February. Why you ask? Not because it's still freezing cold out. Not because it's the lovey-dovey Valentine month. Not because I can see summer over the horizon and I haven't had a sweet swim suit bod since high school. Nope. I'm sad because my bundle of free subway sandwich coupons just expired on the 31st. I've been eating free at least twice a week the entire month. The stack of coupons at Grant's preschool just kept being there... and sometimes growing... so I took one everyday. That was fun!
