"Mom! Donald Duck is coming for a visit!"



That's how Hannah used to pronounce "your welcome."
Now she says it perfectly and it makes me just a tiny bit sad.

Love these darling little fuzzy birds that greet me each morning at my kitchen window.

A Live Doll

Eli is here at just a perfect time for my girls.
They enjoy him and are learning so much about how to be little mommies.
They even play with him like a doll.
Here, Celene put him in her doll bed and pushed him all around the house.
He loved it, of course. :)

A good shot showing the speed used for the ride, haha!

Grandma Sammy found some iceskates at Goodwill and Miles wanted to try them out on the driveway.
With the recent thaw and freeze, it's slick ice out there!

He did a lot of this.

And this is what Celene did every time he fell. ;)

Eli Update

It's been a little while since I've documented how quickly our littlest of littles is growing up.
He easily mastered crawling about 2 weeks, right around 7 months old. 
However, that skill was obviously only learned for the purpose of crawling to the nearest item with which to pull himself up on and walk along.
Growing up too quickly, I say!!

 And this is the latest way to "sit" in his highchair.

They are building! I love it!

I adore the animal pen. *Squeal!*

Celene this Week

"Mom, I made this picture of you. I put a skirt on you so you weren't naked."

"Mom! Come outside! I made something for you!"

"It's a heart. Because I just love you sooooo much!"


Morning Quote

This morning....

Me: "Look kids, it started snowing!"

Miles: " Wow! It's pouring!"

Hannah: "It's pouring? Miles, snow doesn't pour. It's not pouring. You're a dork."

A Little Fan

 Shawn is working on finishing our dining room lately. 
He has a most avid little fan who loves to watch him work. 
It's quite adorable.
