Happy Valentine's Day.

We had a very special Valentine's.
We got you two balloons and a book, I Love You Through and Through. Daddy got Mommy a popcorn Maker. (we will get a lot of use out of it). You and I got Daddy a Lego Star Wars game for the wii.

You had your first ever piece of chocolate. You weren't terribly impressed.

We had blueberry waffles and eggs for breakfast.

We had Asparagus soup and jalapeno and corn muffins for lunch. You weren't as excited about the asparagus soup as you were the last time you had it so we also gave you some leftover pizza.

We also went clothes shopping for you. All of your pants were too short. Some of the outfits you got for Christmas and your birthday are already too small. We bought you clothes in size 2T. I can't believe the pants fit you. You pretty much skipped right over the 18 months clothes. They only fit you for about 2 months. Slow down boy, you have plenty of time to grow!

To end the night we went out for Mexican.
You loved it!
And you were very well-behaved.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Dreaming of Spring Cont...

Since it hasn't been nice enough to go out again I will post the rest of the pics from our "nice day". After playing the morning away you were ready for a nap.You are usually very happy when you wake up from your naps.
And very cute.

You were wondering why I was laying on the floor snapping pictures of you. I do all kinds of crazy things to get the best angles.
You helped me get a snack ready for us.
Then we went on the porch to enjoy our snack in the sunshine.
Your favorite. Popcorn!

Then you tried to help cleanup all the popcorn we dropped on the floor.
We had fun!
I can't wait for our next nice day.

Dreaming of Spring

It is 55 and sunny here to day. I wish it would stay this way. I know it won't so we got out and enjoyed the weather today. No coats necessary, yay!The hyacinth on the kitchen windowsill brings a bit of color to the gray scene outside.
We hit the park and got reacquainted with the swings. Teige was a little leery at first but as soon as we started swinging he quickly remembered how much fun it is.

Ugh, walking in the snow is hard work. He even tried to crawl in it a couple of times. We really weren't dressed for that.
Already giving me panic attacks about the possible injuries stemming from his increased mobility and independence.
Oh boy, maybe spring can wait a little longer. I don't think I'm ready for this. Let's go back to the swings!
Ahhh, that's better :)

Our New Place

We moved to a new apartment last weekend. It is just around the corner from our old place.This is the place. We live on the first floor. I am loving the big screened porch.Another chair will join this one soon. And some plants after the last frost. (Not soon enough!)You enter from our front hall into the living room. The living room opens into the Dining room. See the beautiful light we have. We have wonderful exposure all day. Lots of great big windows in this place. The house is old but the windows are new.More amazing windows in our dining room/ playroom/ office. It all fits beautifully. This is the biggest room in the house.
Office/ craft/ sewing area. The hallway to the bedrooms and bathroom is on the right in this picture.More amazing windows in the Kitchen. One curtain completed and hung before the move in. I need to sew it's mate.Plenty of room for all the cooks in this place!Teige's room is at the end of the hall. The other door in his room (on the right) leads into the kitchen. We have opted to leave it permanently closed so he doesn't run around the house in circles all day and so we can keep better tabs on his whereabouts. As if he leaves my side for more than a minute ;)

Plenty of floor space, for an active boy, in here. Thankfully those mats work wonderfully at cushioning his tumbles.

More beautiful windows and wonderful light. Lucky boy. We gave him the best room in the house.

View of the backyard out his window. We plan to hang a swing, from the big tree, when the weather gets nicer.

A closet with a door, yay! A huge closet at that. (Bigger than ours!)Yeah, I couldn't resist bringing in the slide. We need to practice for the upcoming playground season. Well, this concludes our tour. I forgot to get a picture of the huge clawfoot tub (I can stretch my legs all the way in it) and the big window in the bathroom. Oh, and our room. Truly it isn't exciting enough to get photographed.
p.s. I have to apologize I tried to uplaod a video for the last two hours and now I am giving up. Oh, blogger why must you mock me?
p.p.s. this is why I don't upload videos that often
