January was an eventful month. Here's what we've been up to:
Moms, has your morning ever gone from this...
to this, in a matter of minutes? If Jackson could hashtag this picture, it would be #sorrynotsorry
These two...are mischievous. One constantly steals my phone, the other steals my stuff. One day Roscoe took a sealed container of crayons out of my church bag, snapped the top off, and ate every single crayon.
But when a certain little boy keeps stealing your toys, what's a dog to do?
In case you're wondering, this is exactly what the relationship between a boy and his dog is like.
The other day I caught Jackson sharing his lunch with Roscoe.
We spent the entire month battling sickness. Thankfully the yucky stomach bugs passed us by, but the kids couldn't seem to get rid of the fevers. No fun.
I'm ready for warmer weather! Clearly, I'm not the only one...
The kids had some fun with books. Summer's new favorite book is The Book With No Pictures because it forces the reader to say really silly things. Kylie got some birthday money that she was thrilled to spend at Barnes & Noble.
I finally finished Jackson's baby book. He loved looking at pictures of "Baby Jack."
We've had some chilly treks to the bus stop. No one seems to mind but me :)
Once the girls are on the bus, Jack and I make the walk home. I enjoy these walks with him. Seeing things from his perspective is so interesting. It rained one morning and he was fascinated by all of the worms on the sidewalk.
I love to see him excited about learning, which is why I decided to register him for preschool this fall.
Broadening his circle of friends wouldn't hurt either. Ha!
Seriously though, he's so fun. I really do cherish this one-on-one time with him.
We all had a great time celebrating Kylie's birthday at the ice skating rink. Summer was a natural!
We started working on a 750 piece puzzle. I was afraid it would overwhelm the girls but they actually really enjoy searching for "matches" in their down time.
We had fun celebrating Chinese New Year. The girls love learning about different cultures!
I got to have a lunch date with Summer. Love that girl!
I thought it would be fun to see how our family changes over the year. As of January 2017, this is us!
