Don't fall over...

Don't fall over, I'm updating the blog.  I'm taking pity on poor Grammy and Papa who are far away and need a grandkid fix,  

 Lainey is getting more and more active.  She loves her toys.

 She's a happy, happy baby.

 Noah loves the workbench he got for Christmas.  He likes to be like daddy.

 I love baby feet.

 I love this baby!

 Katelyn loves making some jewelry.  

 ...and then she loves dressing up with her fine jewelry.

 Noah wrote his first letters.  "T", "U" and "H".  He was so proud of himself!

 Lainey got her first two teeth in at 5 1/2 months and now we're waiting for some more.

 Grammy, the sweatshirt you bought her is SO cute.  (And it's nice and warm!)

 Lainey is eating all sorts of food now.  She likes baby oatmeal, bananas, carrots, peas, green beans, acorn squash, pumpkin, butternut squash and avocado.  She gets really excited at meal time. She kicks her feet and flaps her hands.  :)

 Noah likes to do school too.  He's knows all of his letters and this little game I made is helping him with his fine motor skills.  He's trying to attach all the clothes pins to his letter board.  He needs help getting the clothes pins on but he can match all of the letters.  He likes being big like Katelyn and when she's doing school Noah wants to as well.

 Lainey LOVES the bouncy. 

 We have to be creative on cold winter days when we can't go outside.

 Sweet girl.
 Katelyn's home school co-op started back up yesterday.  This semester in science they are learning about chemistry.  They did a science experiment about water molecules and then they created a water molecule and an alcohol molecule using gumdrops and toothpicks.  

 Lainey is 7 months old now.  She's showing more and more personality.  She is very happy and just goes with the flow.  She loves watching Katelyn and Noah.  She can roll all the way around now so she's starting to get a bit mobile.  I'm not quite ready for that!

 It's been unseasonably lovely this week so we're trying to Carpe Diem and enjoy it while it lasts.  We've been to two different parks and the playground at the church after home school group this week.  When we were driving out the back entrance of the park today there were some horses that were right by the fence along the road so I pulled over and let the kids have a visit.

 The horses were friendly...and huge.  Noah and Katelyn loved getting to hang out with them.

 It's days like this that I really love homeschooling.  I like that we get to have times like these in our day.  Katelyn got all of her school work done, the kids played at the park for 45 minutes, we visited with horses, Noah got to see the train go by, everyone took a good rest this afternoon.  It was a fun day.

All in all, this winter hasn't been too bad so far...
