February Life...

Just a little catch-up on pictures and what's been going on around here lately.

We celebrated Mimi's birthday when she was here visiting a few weekends back...

Every year for Mimi's birthday, Georgia demands that we make her cupcakes!

Grant was not pleased that he couldn't eat the cupcakes, so he did his best to raid the Lindt balls....

Girl Scout cookie season is almost over... thank goodness.  Georgia has been selling cookies since December.  I've definitely learned some lessons this first year and feel confident I'll have a better grasp on all this stuff when it rolls around again next year (aka - just order an extra case of thin mints and samoas to save myself from having to "restock" time and time again from our troop's cookie mom).  

Yes, we actually do accept credit card!  Hahaha

Winter decided to never show up here in the mid-Atlantic.  On Wednesday, it was almost 80 degrees.  Totally ridiculous.  Then, an afternoon thunderstorm rolled into town.  I got home to find the deck in absolute disarray.  

We still can't figure out what wind managed to get that wicker/orange chair behind the table/chair set

Meanwhile in the front yard, our first daffodil of the season showed up... on March 1st.  So crazy!  Even the Cherry Blossoms are starting to come out.

Grant and I even walked up to the school to pick up Georgia this week.

On the food front, Nick and I were gifted 3 free Hello Fresh meals from one of my co-workers.  Overall, we really liked the meals, but the prep was way too intensive.  They might be good for the weekend for us, but on a weekday, it was too much chopping, boiling, zesting, etc. when I'm also trying to feed two other kids.  Georgia wasn't able to eat the meals because they all had a cross-contamination warning on them.  So, even though they were tasty and we liked trying new things, there is just no time for me to deal with all their prep steps during the week!

This big guy has been teething like crazy all week (STILL no teeth) and also has been nursing a stuffy nose and lots of green gunk.  Ewwwwww.  Thankfully, he's still pretty happy, even with all the snot and junk coming out of his raw little nose.  Like all babies, getting his nose wiped is apparently THE most traumatic thing that could ever happen to him!

I love belly rolls!

He makes a good pillow

On the peanut butter front... It's like 2 steps forward and 1 step back.  

Eating like a big boy on Friday night

Last Sunday night, Nick took Georgia out to deliver some cookies to his co-workers.  Grant and I went upstairs to do our peanut butter dinner/bath.  Oh boy.  About halfway through dinner, he grabbed the spoon from me and managed to cover himself head to toe in peanut butter applesauce before I wrestled it back from him.  Needless to say, his bath was an extra special event that night...

I basically had to waterboard this baby to get him clean!

Last weekend, Nick took Georgia to a neighbor's birthday party at Climb Zone.  Grant and I hung at home, but kept receiving his text pictures and videos.  The place looked amazing and G had a blast spending the afternoon climbing and pretending to be on "American Ninja Warrior."

Last weekend, Georgia also wrapped up her winter gymnastic session.  It's onto dance and tball for the spring!

Last weekend, we also finally got to meet the newest edition to the family, Baby Elliot!  Grant seemed to enjoy not being the youngest and loved meeting his new California cousin.

Onto March...
