I've been keeping up with things around the house, wishing for warmer weather!
We've had a baby shower, and helped with a wedding shower.
We went shopping for and purchased a new van.
We FINALLY paid off our school loans.
We've also been to play at 2 different friend's houses and gong to a new mom's group- which was a music class "preview". Both kiddoes had a blast.
We're prepping for a visit this weekend from Erik's parents- which is meaning I'm spending a lot of time in the kitchen- cooking therapy, if you will. It's nice. I'm making sure to make extra large batches of everything so there's plenty to freeze for later meals- I'd wiped out all of my dream dinners a few weeks ago... speaking of which- I have a few more to show you... I'll get around to that... sometime.
Sophia is a full fledged crawler now. Climbing even up onto the shelf under our side table in the living room. Dear Lord please have mercy on me- don't give me a climber!!
When Sophia isn't crawling around- she's demanding in a very loud and shrill voice that I hold her.
Matthew is growing/ developing a lot too lately. "crafts" and painting have taken our afternoon time. A few weeks ago he told his first joke:
"why did the orange go to the doctor?"
"because he had a peel!!" hilarious- best joke I've ever heard.
He also told Erik and I a bedtime story 2 nights ago. I'll have to write that up for you sometime soon too... it'd be an awesome thing to make into a real book- with illustrations and everything... you know, if I was some awesome artist or something. :)
