Spring has sprung


Just kidding.

This is what we woke up to this morning on April 15th! Yesterday the kids were playing in the rain with their rain boots and umbrella, and today we had full snow suits!!

This big girl

finally slept in her own bed!

A week shy of 18 months old and she slept in her own bed, in her own room, for the very first time last night. It was like we never really got around to moving her out of the pack n play in our room. I nursed her until she was 11 months old, so it was nice to have her right there with me. After that.....I don't know, I just never moved her out! She slept great last night.....an extra hour!.....fingers crossed it continues. She's just getting so big! Fun to watch her grow, sad she's not a little baby anymore.

Scrub a dub dub

Two babes in the tub.

When you've been in that January and February funk and a good scrub just gets you in a better mood!

We are so ready for spring break. Hoping for good health and happiness these next couple weeks to get us through!!

Siblings

Just over a year into his journey as a big brother and Mace is such a pro! I am so proud of the way he treats Remy. He has more patience for her than he does for any of the rest of us, that is for sure ;)) Very rarely does he ever get frustrated with her. Most of the time he is very sweet and caring and loves to help.

If she cries in the car, he tries to make her laugh (and usually succeeds). He loves to play hot cocoa parties with her, and he will give her all her babies when she's looking for them. In the mornings he loves to snuggle with her and watch a show she likes, like Mickey Mouse or princesses. He loves to check in on her at school....I think it's one of the highlights of half day kindergarten for both of us!--that when we get to afternoon preschool, we get to see Remy and hold her and give her hugs and kisses.

And of course Remy absolutely loves Mace. I'm not sure if she understands that Mace is also a child like her? It's hard to tell. She loves to hug him just like she hugs us.....but she would also like for Mace to be able to pick her up, and he can't quite do that, ha! She does know that he will play with her, and dance with her, and sometimes she will start to chase him or run away from him to start a silly game of tag or peekaboo! It is so sweet.

I have always loved having an older brother, and as Mace and Remy both grow, I hope they treasure how special they are to each other.

Tooth fairy visits

Mace man has been keeping the tooth fairy busy at our house this week! He lost his first tooth on the last night of Christmas break after wiggling and wiggling (and very well freaking out and having a couple of all out meltdowns about what it would actually be like when the tooth came out). He pulled the tooth on his own though and was so excited when it came out. He almost became a very wealthy fellow because the tooth fairy was having trouble finding anything other than a 50 (but seriously.....we never have 50s......until we just need one stinking dollar!!!), but the fairy scrounged up a dollar and even managed to sparkle and glitter it up because that's what the fairy does I guess. Mace was thrilled and now thrilled again this morning to find another dollar for his second tooth. No more loose teeth at this time, so the fairy might get a break!

2017

Nine most liked pics from Instagram in 2017
Another year is coming to a close......Time moves too quickly with little children at home! We have had a special year watching Mace start junior kindergarten and Remy turning in to a little toddler. We were able to take some really fun trips to Florida and California. Celebrated wonderful birthdays and holidays. Capped off the year with a white Christmas.....and we actually were in our own home for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for the first time ever which was different and sort of fun. We are so thankful for our family, our home, and our health and are looking forward to 2018.
