Toddler approved

These long, cold, snowy days seem endless. Ari keeps asking: "can I go out and ride my trike now?" One of these days I'll be able to say yes, but until then I'm always looking for ways to keep her busy indoors.

Stamps and play dough!

She loves using ink pads and paper, too, it just takes a little more oversight with a two year old!

Ari is already a huge play dough fan, so this was a fun, new activity that she enjoys, too. 

What are your favorite ways to play indoors with littles during the long winters?

My Little Man

A year ago I was snuggling my newborn, amazed at his perfect little size.

Now I'm watching a little boy waddle around the house; listening to him giggle and laugh at his sister's antics; picking up after him as he displays his increasing delight in the law of gravity; and constantly, constantly feeding him.

His top 10 favorites are currently:
time with Daddy
bath time
bedtime cuddles
...and did I mention bananas?

Happy first birthday, my sweet Caden James!

What a face.
