Back to Winter...

Happy Sunday morning!  As I type, we're watching the morning news, which is all about the HYPE about potential winter weather for us this week.  Everyone here is over the moon since we haven't had even an inch of snow yet this year.  We have 4 snow days to burn (or we are all essentially "working for free" for those 4 days).  Bring it on!  Sorry daffodils.

The Thoman week...

Georgia and Nick hit up the indoor pool for some winter swimming last weekend.  Grant and I stayed home and I got in some quality cuddles.




My heart knows that these days are numbered, so I'll take whatever I can get.

I got in a second set of cuddles later in the week when I was rocking him to sleep too. 





Don't worry - Grant had plenty of awake time this week too.  In fact, he had a blast waking up his sister on Thursday...




So far, Georgia is all Nick when it comes to waking up.... GRUMPY!  Grant is more like me... once he's up, he's up and pretty much ready to start the day.  I plopped him into bed with Ms. Grumpy and even Georgia couldn't resist that gummy smile (STILL no teeth!).




Grant also tried some new foods this week.  His new favorite is baby yogurt.  It only gave me a mild heart attack to give it to him knowing that was the food that Georgia first reacted to five years ago.  But, Grant inhaled his yogurt (just like Georgia did) and then NO REACTION.  Phew.  

He also tried roasted parsnips and ate some of the broccoli right off my plate at dinner.  YUMMY!









Grant's ability to pick up food is improving each and every day.  We introduced puffs about a week ago and he was really struggling with getting them into his mouth (and not choking) on them.  But, by the end of the week, he's become a master of grabbing a handful of them and shoving his entire fist into his mouth!

Georgia also had him in high-five bootcamp last weekend.

Honestly, some days, I think Georgia could just stare at Grant and he'd think she was funny.  He just adores her.  It's just the best thing to watch.  She walks in a room and is instantly his entire world.

Other weekly randoms...

Our little shark still loves bath time.




Ironically, right after I took the photo above, Georgia showed up in my timehop and there's really no arguing that these kids are related (Georgia was just a few months older at the time).





I managed to escape for a few hours on Thursday night to finally go back to blonde after spending the fall/winter as a brunette, so now Grant and I are twins!  But, he definitely had the hair moment of the week when he rocked his first mohawk...





He also discovered the joys of eating wrapping paper... cause what 7 month old doesn't think that wrapping paper is the best part of the present?!?




Most days, he's just our happy little camper...




And with that, let's hope that I update next weekend with lots of SNOW pictures!!  Hoping Grant gets his first blizzard experience, Georgia gets her first kindergarten snow days, and Nick gets to finally use his snowblower.
