Snowed In 2015

It doesn't snow very often in Ms. In fact, the last time we had good decent snow was about 3 years ago. Every year after was just a tiny light dusting. So when we FINALLY got a good 6 inches of snow, we couldn't help but play in it for what felt like hours (really a solid 45 minutes because C's face was about to freeze off). We built a snowman, C ate several fist fulls of snow, threw numerous snow balls, and drank hot chocolate to warm us back up. It was a glorious two days of snow!

January Recap

I've been absolutely HORRIBLE in the past about documenting iphone photos. Hoping this year to do a better job and just throw them on a recap post at the end of each month. January was a long, weird month. We got back from NZ in the beginning (I promise to be documenting that trip soon). Then we were hit with sickness after sickness. We made lots of transitions and did a total spring cleaning of the house because...... we've decided to move!!! That's right! We are moving just one city over, but we are so excited to be closer to our friends and church! The house went on the market at the very end of the month/ beginning of February, but we've had tons of interest! Hoping for an offer soon!

Anyways, here's the past month in iphone photos, some edit, some not, but I'm just glad they are finally being documented!! Now to go back and do October-dec...:(

Canaan moved out of the crib and into his big boy bed. He's done FANTASTIC!! seriously. He never tries to get out of it, and he waits on us to get him in the morning and after naps. So thankful for this easy transition!

Willow moved to her room! She's doing great in her crib at night... but naps are another story.

Date night with husband to dinner and target! This date night was so refreshing. We ate the yummiest food at Bablu. We then went to target and just muddled around. We danced in the aisles, laughed, and took photos. We even decided to buy all of C's potty training gear. Haven't potty trained just yet, but we are getting close.

Willow is 4 months

I'm not real sure why the spacing is all crazy with this post, but really, who cares... do you see how precious she is??

oh my sweet W,

you are 4 months old! I'm a few days behind on posting this, but I wanted to wait until we went to the doctor and got you measurements and weight. You weigh 13.14 and are 24inches long. You are exactly on the 50% so basically perfect:) You are sleeping like a champ at night. Your last nurse session is at 8:30, you're asleep at 9, and your sleeping until around 7:30-8am with no waking!! Naps, however, are a different story. you pretty much hate it. You go down great for all 3 naps, but you're waking up 40 minutes in exactly. We've tried pretty much every method to help you fall back asleep and nothing seems to be working. So, we are just giving it to the Lord and trusting him with it. Sooner or later you will get the hang of it, I'm sure. Just a rough little transition for you (or really me). Other than that, you are such a happy girl. You smile constantly but have yet to giggle. You are still swaddled mostly (you arms are free, but you like it tight around your body). You have a love/hate relationship with tummy time. You hold yourself up so well and have rolled over once. You are so fascinated by your big brother and love to watch him. You're 100% a mommas girl. Some days, I'm the only one who you will let hold you or snuggle you. You are in size 1 diapers, but as soon as the pack is out, you'll be in size 2. You are strictly in size 3-6 months clothes. You are nursing 4 times a day and taking a bottle at 5:30 which we both love. Sometimes it's a pumped bottle and sometimes its formula. Either way, you and I both love it and it helps you sleep through the night. AMEN. I couldn't love you more little girl. You make me want to have all the babies. You have the most precious personality and the chubbiest cheeks. Momma and Daddy couldn't be more thankful for you. We love you!
