I'm taking the easy way out by updating with pictures from the last couple months...one massive post of pictures!
Baby girl had to take a trip to the doctor one afternoon in the end of December. Hard to tell here that she wasn't feeling well. She sat in this big kid chair (for a few seconds) waiting for the doctor to arrive.
Fun at the park together.
Checking out the train display at Northpark Mall
Jack at his 3 year check-up
Bedtime with Bear. Love seeing that happy face at bedtime!
Amelia has had an obsession with babies recently. This doll is bigger than Amelia is but she loves it. She will carry her dolls around, sway back and forth with them, and say "baby, baby, shhh, shhh."
Jack had his first visit to the dentist right after turning 3! He did a great job and got a good report on his teeth.
Amelia eating her first whole apple. She loved it!

Party time at Chuck E Cheese's for Griffins 3rd birthday.
Jack loved going on all the rides and playing lots of games.
At just over 3 years old, this big boy is now potty trained (as of about 2 weeks ago.) I really can't believe how awesome he has done!
Going for a walk on a beautiful evening
I love how these 2 play together in the big red car and how they have converted it into a 2 seater. They take turns with which side they each sit on. Whoever sits by the door has one foot in and one foot out of the car. It seem completely normal to them and they just love it! Makes me laugh.
Spinning in circles
First time practicing cutting with scissors. Jack really caught on quick and enjoyed this activity. It was perfect to keep him busy - while I sat cutting out coupons, he cut out pictures of things he liked.
Now is this some awesome bedhead hair or what?!?!
A trip to Barnes and Noble
Jack had a chat with mom-mom on the phone while they were on their way home from a cruise.
Party time in Houston for Pa-Pa's birthday!
Jack and "Spot"
Look how much these cousins have grown. Crazy!
Superbowl Sunday. The boys were in charge of making the cheese dip. Jack loved helping out in the kitchen as always.
Amelia in her football outfit
Jack's had his first time working on the computer with a mouse. This skill is gonna take a while to master. He got a little frustrated getting it to work right but was very proud to be working on a computer like Daddy.
We just recently had another snow fall. It has been a cold winter with more snow & ice than usual, but we have really enjoyed it all.
Playtime with Daddy
Bathtime! The kids just started having baths in the tub upstairs together and they are loving it.
We went to a valentines day party at our friends Mason & Maggie's house. The kids decorated valentine bags, exchanged cards, went on a heart hunt in the backyard, decorated cookies, and had a picnic lunch while watching a mickey valentines movie. So much fun!
We took Daddy to the airport on Valentines Day so he could go on a business trip to India.
Here are a few of the things we did to stay busy while he was away. We took a walk to the corner store for hotdogs and had a picnic outside with the cousins.
Amelia and Eliana having a picnic in their strollers.
We had lots of outdoor playtime with so much nice weather! Amelia and her friend Lorelei in their cozy coups.
Yup...she has a big white flower bow on her head and she is playing in the dirt. This crazy girl sure doesn't mind getting a little (or a lot) of dirt on her.
We went to the playground with Ledger and Griffin. They found the perfect hide out!
After lots of playing they stopped to rest and eat sugar!!
Picnic and playtime in Lorelei's backyard.
We have been having too much fun! Crazy that we are nearing the end of February. Sure seems to me that it was New Years just last week. So thankful for the gift we are given with each new day together and treasure all these memories we are making.
