We had such a wonderful and low key weekend. Friday was an absolute blast. David LOVED the snow and had the best time running around and playing with the neighbors. He even got to skip his nap and have hot chocolate with marshmellows. Daddy made it home just in time to make a huge snow man before the sunset and finish off the night with pizza and friends.
Last weekend David was invited to his dear friend Harrison's 2nd birthday party at the Fire Station. David ADORES fire trucks, but was a little overwhelmed by the whole experience. The firemen were so kind to all the kids, let them pile into the driver's seat, and even turned the lights on. Like all things, David likes things in theory more than practice. The fire station was a bit like Santa Claus, but he warmed up after being there for a little while and of course was delighted to hear that cupcakes would end the day.
Evie is doing really well. She has grown so much in her willingness to eat and has the cutest little thighs and cheeks to show for it. I cannot wait to see her in bubbles this Spring and Summer. She has rolled over a few more times even though she doesn't love tummy time as much as her brother did. She is taking a 1 hour morning nap, cat nap around lunch, a HUGE nap in the afternoon, and then another cat nap around dinner. I am assuming she will start to drop those cat naps as she gets older. It is tricky trying to remember what I did with David and then adjusting it to fit Evie's needs.
David is just plain silly. It has been the biggest change so far. He runs around the house making all kinds of weird voices and does this silly strut as well. He is full of energy and has taken to jumping on furniture and screaming into pillows. There are no more smiles for the camera. He is much too busy to be bothered with posing for Mommy. He is in a huge train phase and could play with them non-stop all day long. It is crazy weird to hear him speaking in sentences. He is still extremely detail oriented and is not one to like a mess. His eating has gotten significantly better--he now LOVES broccoli (which he calls garlic for some reason or another) and carrots.
We are blessed and I love my job.
