February - Second Half

"Late February days; and now, at last, might you have thought that winter's woe was past; so fair the sky was and so soft the air." -William Morris

The weather the last couple of weeks of February was very volatile, ranging anywhere from the 20s to the mid 70s.  Regardless of the weather, we made sure to take our daily walk...


Some days the children were more excited than others. ;-)
We signed Joseph up for his first season of tee-ball, which starts soon.  He has already has some unofficial "practices" in the back yard with Daddy...






We celebrated my father's 70th birthday...





And Joseph continued working hard at occupational therapy each week...we're so proud of him!





And we also went to the Old Starmount Mardi Gras celebration with my parents, as we do every year...






And, some more fun moments from the people I love so much. :-)




Take the day that this little princess turned 7 months old

Such a silly boy!

My favorite little Tar Heels




Love watching these two hold hands and cuddle in the stroller :-)

February Thus Far

"The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size." -Gertrude S. Wister



This has been pretty much the warmest February ever in this part of NC, and here's a few pictures from our month so far...

We celebrated Valentine's Day with a date night at La Rue Elm downtown.  Joseph stayed with my parents.  Lizzie, while not pictured here, came along with us since she's still nursing very frequently.



We also took some Valentine treats to our police officer friends to thank them for all they do to keep us safe...




We had a random dessert picnic on our den floor one Friday night.  Just because.


And because the weather was beautiful, we made sure we got out and about with the kiddos a lot...


And no blog of mine would be complete without lots of pictures of these sweeties...because, you know, I'm kind of crazy about them...

Joseph has been continuing his weekly occupational therapy with Miss Jenna and is making great strides in motor skills!






He also went to Sunday School at church for the first time in a veerrrrrryyyy long time with no hints at all of any separation anxiety.  So proud and I love the Valentine he made there. :-)

Trying on an heirloom ruffle top and bloomers set, which fits her in exactly the wrong season of course. ;-)

Not overjoyed about getting bundled up for a walk

This is what this diva does during her brother's OT



Because I'm all about capturing real moments!

We still have almost 1/2 of February to go...excited about what adventures await!
