To say I am a bit behind on this blog is...well, the understatement of the century! I know at work to accomplish things I have to set goals- so I am setting a goal to post once a month this year and I hope to stick to it. I really hope this blog is a reflection of God's blessings and what he is doing in our lives.
Keeping up with two boys is so much fun...and let's be real...exhausting! I believe the noise volume increases exponentially with the number of boys and their age! Nap time is such a blessing! So, here goes...I will try to recap February.
We traveled to Keystone the end of January/beginning of Feb. This was Jay's first flight and trip and we had a blast! Nana and PawPaw (my parents) went too and helped Jay along in learning to ski...and generally about snow! It snowed a couple of the days we were there which made it fun. Aside from skiing, Jay's favorite thing was the Gondola which was right outside our condo. He wanted to ride it ALL THE TIME! You could ride it up and down and so we would over, and over and OVER! But the views were always breathtaking and it was a relaxing ride.
Of course, then we had Valentine's Day. I got a new machine for my birthday and I got to put it to work in making the boy's Valentine's! Jay's Valentine's included animal crackers inside.
Gavin's was Banana baby food and said "I'm BANANANS for you"! Even though he is 14 mos. old...he is the oldest in the class and most of the other babies aren't eating much yet. We had fun making them!
Both boys are growing so fast and doing new things. Jay has recently really started to enjoy coloring! Of course, he is still a rambunctious boy...but he can settle down from time to time! Gavin is now 14 mos...walking and likes to talk to us- if only we could understand him! He says, Momma, Dadda, brother, and he has said puppy. He wants to run so badly and tries to keep up with Jay! Gavin is also quite the dancer! As soon as he hears music come on he immediately starts to move! Too cute!
We have been enjoying the unseasonably warm days...and started to plant a garden this month. We have planted potatoes, onion, carrots and broccoli so far. We have plans to add green beans, cucumbers, okra, squash, spinach and maybe corn. Yes- it is ambitious. Matt decided we might as well try a lot of different things and see what does well and what doesn't. We certainly will have a learning curve!
Jay has enjoyed helping Matt get everything prepped and the actual planting. I am anxious for our first round of fresh veggies! I really want the boys to learn where their food comes from and I hope the garden will be something they take part in and can see grow.
Until next month...
