Miss Pea was 11 months old last week - only another few weeks until 1 year?! How time flies...
Piper is walking everywhere now, preferring walking to crawling every time. She is such a sweet baby; happy and loves to be snuggled and cuddled by everyone. She has her times when only Mama will do though - and Mama is okay with that!
She's pointing now (so cute! I had forgotten how much I love pudgy pointers!), getting into everything, "driving" cars, and waving hi. She really loves babies, loves to cuddle and rock baby dolls and her monkey, and loves to watch and pet real babies too!
Ruth had her first gymnastics competition on Feb. 1st. We were lucky that Grandma was able to come to the house to stay with the boys so Josh and I could both go with Ruth to the competition! (and Piper came, too, of course.)
Ruthie did so well! She did 4 events; beam, floor, bars, and vault.
She ended up with 2 silver ribbons, 2 bronze ribbons, and a bronze medal overall! We are so proud of her!
We were able to get a new computer this week to replace my old, broken, always saying it's unplugged and dying, wouldn't let me get videos up to share without overheating and shutting down, computer. Hooray! So, we have to play a bit of catch-up now!
These are from the school Christmas concert, obviously back in December.
Yes, it has been winter and we've had snow for months all ready. However, it's also been too cold for any good outside play for the younger kids. Finally (fingers crossed, knock on wood, and all that!) spring is coming and our temps are much nicer! We were able to get outside to play at Grandma & Grandpa's house yesterday afternoon...
Then we walked to a nearby park with a small hill for sledding!
