look who's 8 months!

fastest 8 months of my life! this little man is such a joy.

at 8 months he:
sleeps 12 hours a night
LOVES his fruits and veggies
is starting to eat breads and grains
basically just wants to eat everything in sight
rolls and scoots everywhere
watches his sister so closely and always has a big smile for her
loves bath time and soaks me with all his splashes
kicks those chubby legs over and over
does crunches on the floor, he's gonna have abs of steel :)
still loves his bottle

we just adore him!

hallie in the car



i have so many pictures of hallie in the car. it's a little ridiculous. i just think it's adorable that she brings stuffed animals everywhere we go and always makes sure she buckles them in. she is the best stuffed animal mama i've ever seen. i love going places with this girl.

ps please note all three of these photos were taken when i was a passenger. i never use my phone while driving. rest assured. ;)

six pictures from after church

^^^because each child should have a turn being non-blurry.^^^

^^^he looked too cute for words.^^^

^^^the elbow patches were my fav.^^^

at the start of the year we moved to late afternoon church. it has been a rough transition for both our kids. (and a little for us too. :) boston's longest nap of the day is the exact time church is and he's not liking it. it's made for some pretty long days, as mark and i both take turns going to meetings first thing in the morning. but we love our ward and sundays are still pretty special days for us. especially after mark finally gets home and we stuff our faces with food and change into sweatpants. :)

these faces.

 ^^^these are their "we need something from you" faces^^^


this week we have all had colds. if they needed a lot from me last week, they needed everything from me this week. yet somehow when they are sick it's easy to cater to them because it is so very sad to see the dry skin from the runny noses and hear the coughing all night. :(

we are all happy to have the weekend (and hopefully our health) in sight!

snow day









it finally snowed again round these parts! it started snowing at dusk the other night. my children and i were cozy in our home, with nowhere to go and nothing to do but wait for mark to make it home on the slick roads.

we went to sleep to snow falling fast and woke up the next morning to everything covered in white. hallie was ecstatic.

of course the first thing hallie did after preschool was bundle up and make snow angels all over the yard. boston and i watched from the window, feeling torn because i want to keep that baby indoors with me forever, but i will be so happy when hallie has a playmate to throw snow with.

she came in all rosy-cheeked and tired, changed into her pajamas and promptly fell asleep.

this part of winter is pretty magical.


ps the not so magical part? boston has had a cold and cough all week and it's made me sick with worry. :( i feel terrible for the little dude.
