Just a random assortment of what we've been up to lately...
Titus is perfecting standing - he loves to pull up on EVERYTHING! The last few weeks he has even tested out letting go a few times...crazy to think we may have a "walker" soon!
Boden had "Character Day" at school - where you dress up like a character from one of our favorite books and then bring the book to school to share with the class. He dressed up in his baseball uniform (t-ball t-shirt under his Cardinals jersey- had to wear them both) and took the book "Froggy Plays T-Ball." He had a lot of fun with it - he was so excited that he got to take his glove to school!
Boden is such an artist - he amazes me every single day with the elaborate drawings he comes up with - he will sit and draw for an hour sometimes - I asked him one day what he was doing and he said
"oh, I'm just using my imagination" - I love that kid!
this pretty much sums up Claire....sitting on the counter, crazy hair, hollering about something, with a dumped box of crayons...yep, that's pretty accurate.
Titus got ahold of a chocolate chip pancake I left unattended for about 10 seconds - lucky duck...
Boden read his first book! He is having fun learning to read and it is such a joy to see him grown and learn. I love getting to see the lightbulbs pop on when he figures out a new word or concept.
It's been a pretty mild winter here - we had snow one day for about 20 minutes. We've had a lot of days to play outside which the kids love and so does mama.
Boden's artwork was featured on the entrance wall at school - I just happened to take him to school one day that week so I got to see it and snap a picture. He LOVES art!
in addition to standing Titus is constantly exploring the stairs. I knew the day would come that I would dislike that double staircase...it's here! He makes a dash for the stairs every time I put him down (as long as the dishwasher is not open. If the dishwasher is open he prefers to try to crawl in it instead). :)
Tea party with my favorites. There is no photographic proof...but I was dressed up too!
So that's a bit of what we've been up to - in between my kids catching every single virus and cold that comes near them. I'm so ready for spring and warmer weather to come!
