Photo Friday

Happy sunny Friday everyone! We have all finally started to emerge from the cold that was working its way through our household (minus some lingering coughs) and have also had a full week of beautiful play-outside-every-day weather! Lewis is loving puddle jumping, squelching through mud, and finding sticks and other treasures that are emerging from the snow drifts. Mama is loving not having to bundle us in so many layers, longer and more frequent outside play times, and sidewalks that are actually navigable by stroller! (There’s a bit of an ice sheet still left in some places, so at times it is more like ice skating down the sidewalk, but it is a huge huge improvement over lumpy messy frozen inches of snow and ice and slush that a stroller had no chance of rolling over.

The combination of daylight savings time and miserable coldy toddler did throw nap time and bedtime into a bit of a rough patch for about a week, but we are back on track now and Lewis is sleeping just as well as ever. Mama, on the other hand, is fighting with the lovely fun of pregnancy insomnia and lying awake in the night thinking of all sorts of random things plus occasionally being kept awake by the kicks and acrobatics of a growing baby. At least I can still fit in a nap for myself during Lewis’ nap time most days if I need it!

Back to rice in the sensory bin. He loves making constructions with funnels and old yarn cones to pour the rice through.

Another Lewis request, to take his picture as he ran through the room. He looks so big here!
