Life Lately...

Soooooo... someone in our house got some new teeth.  It wasn't Grant.  Nick and I had absolutely no idea that 6 year old molars were a "thing."  Georgia was at the dentist this week and learned the news that she now has 2 more teeth in her mouth.  All this time, we've been waiting for Grant to get teeth and Georgia was the one growing some new ones!  She was so proud of her 2 new little guys that are just starting to poke up in the back of her mouth.

Grant has discovered his tongue, though.  He loves to chew away on it.  (Note the Thanksgiving outfit.  I refer to it as his "outfit of shame" since he comes home wearing it several times a week from daycare after spitting up or pooping on his original outfit that he got to sent to school wearing!).

Meanwhile, Grant is just happy to jump, jump, jump the day away at school.  At least he's happy when I arrive to pick him up.  

Picking up my little buddy at school this week

When not jumping, Grant is VERY interested in food.  Any food.  Particularly, any food that the rest of us are eating.  Since, he's a second child, we pretty much just hand it over to give him a lick or two.  This week, he was pretty happy with some plain penne pasta!

He still loves his bath time.  There's nothing cuter than a clean baby...

This week, we celebrated Valentine's Day...

I ran out of work early on Tuesday so that I could attend Georgia's party in kindergarten.  She was so excited for party day!

Showing me around her classroom

Tuesday also happened to be Georgia's Jump Rope for Heart day at school, so she was also sporting some new "jewels" that she earned by fundraising for the American Heart Association.  Thank you to everyone who donated to her event.

Miss G was STARVING after all her jump roping because she inhaled several of the safe cupcakes that I brought for the party.  Valentine's Day and Halloween can be a tad stressful for food allergy families, but I've found that being one of the room parents definitely gives me some control of the food situation since I run the Sign Up Genius for the party.  Her school also highly encourages all parents to contribute items that peanut/tree nut free, so she was able to eat a good chunk of the food at her class party.

After the party, G and I ran over to our local outlets to grab some candy for Daddy for Valentine's Day.  While there, we had to throw some coins in the fountain!

Just a typical V-Day around our house these days...

Grant most enjoyed eating his cards.  Thank you to everyone who sent both the kids cards and dollars.  Georgia loved depositing both her and Grant's earnings into their piggy banks!

Mimi arrived for her annual February visit on Thursday night.

Georgia and her daisy troop participated in World Thinking Day on Friday evening at the high school.  It involved all the daisy, girl scout, cadet, etc. troops in town.  Georgia's troop learned all about Madagascar and were charged with sharing that info with the other girls.  I was so impressed to watch Georgia talk to the other girls and tell them all about lemurs and games that kids in Madagascar play.  I was especially impressed that she was more than willing to talk to the "big girls."

Handing out lemur passport stickers

The weather this weekend has been GORGEOUS!  Apparently there will be no snow in Maryland this year, so we might as well move right to spring.  Although I really want my 4 paid snow days, I won't complain about 70+ degrees in February either.

Watching the kids play

Pretty much the entire neighborhood was out celebrating the nice weather.  It looked like a beautiful spring day in MD!
