I know I have not posted a blog post in a while so I am sure its no surprise to anyone but I am officially closing this blog. I am grateful for everyone's support and interest and I really enjoyed writing it when I had the time but I have found the idea of it overwhelming for a while now so I am officially ending it.

Wednesday haiku

Eight in the morning
Eight degrees in Fahrenheit
Eight inches of snow

The flu
Tummy sick with flu
Toddler, boy, girl, then husband
Its coming for me

Red velvet cupcakes
Sit uneaten on counter
Why do I bother

Officially toddling

We are officially a baby free home. She has been weaned for a couple months and we are into sippy cups and straws. 

She has been pulling herself up on furniture for a while scooting around the edges but this weekend that changed. She is now an independent two footed mover and she hasn't stopped.

Snow day!

We got an unexpected amount of snow last night. It was enough to actually cover the ground and both delight and confuse the dog.

He has recently reached a point in his training where we can take him off his lead some in the backyard to play with him and let him run. He loves it and is very praise motivated and so is thrilled that he gets so much praise for doing something he wants to do any way, chase a ball and run. The snow added a whole new level to this excitement and he had a blast sprinting around the yard and kicking it around trying to find the ground.

The older two kids really enjoyed the snow as well but it was a very cold day and since the snow was too powdery to make snow balls or snow forts or snowmen they did not spend a lot of time in it. Rather enjoyed hot chocolate after getting cold hands a few times.

The toddler was very pleased to practice her walking outside and was fascinated to watch it come down and see how it changed everything but she found it to be disappointingly cold and wet to play with.
