January wrap-up

Millie offered to read a book to Max. I love it when they're nice to each other!


Max got to borrow our neighbor's/cousin's bike and was super excited to be on a Lightning McQueen bike while wearing Lightning McQueen socks and shoes.


Millie has a little obsession with climbing trees lately, which is really too bad because there are no good climbing trees around here! She makes do with this one by our mailbox.


I've recently started exercising at night. It was just a bit much to try and fit it in the morning routine. I don't really like doing it at night but that's better than not at all I guess! Harvey sometimes makes it difficult by being extra snuggly. I can't seem to put him down when he's like that.


A happy boy and a messy floor.


Not sure who got the dress code memo wrong - the underdressed kid or the overdressed one!


I may have mentioned this before, but Millie moved up a level in swimming recently which moved her to the big pool. Until they can swim the full 25 meters in a stroke they use this little platform as a halfway point. Millie loves it.


I had to document Max's request for breakfast every morning for a couple weeks - an apple with peanut butter. Usually accompanied by some "yogurt wif granola chunks."


I thought this was the cutest picture ever! Until Tyler pointed out a weird shadow or something that makes it look like Harvey has a bump or something on the right side of his forehead. Now it's all I see haha. Still a cute pic.


Having a baby snuggled up to you is one of the best feelings ever!


This is Max "hiding" to surprise Tyler when he came home from work. He obviously buys into the "I can't see you, you can't see me" notion.



Had to stop for a jump on our way home from the park.



The kids and I took a Sunday walk and partway through Max asked me to carry him. He giggled when I put him on my back and said "This is great! This way I won't get tired!" He's got it all figured out.


We hadn't listened to the Standin' Tall CDs in a while but Millie asked to listen to the one on service. Afterwards we talked about it and I told them I would start asking what they've done to serve someone each day at dinner. A few minutes later Millie snuck into Max's room and shut the door. I suspected some naughty behavior so I went in after a minute and found her making Max's bed! Such a sweetheart. I may have cried. Definitely made them pose by the bed so I could remember the sweet moment.


My last Sam's trip was the day before Harvey was born and it was high time we went. I "put on my big girl panties" as my mom says and took all the kids with me. I was exhausted afterward but we all survived!


First time at library story time in a while. Also, documentation of Millie's awesome hair. She rocked a headband AND a necklace around her head. I wish I had her confidence!



I think Harvey has officially begun teething. He sucks on his hands so much, usually audibly too which is so cute. Doesn't seem to bother him too much yet, thank goodness!


That's a wrap on January!
