"Snow" Day


It finally snowed here in North Carolina. Yes, I use the term lightly. In fact, I know you can't see the other side of our lawn, but if you could you'd know that it was grass with no snow. Luckily it all depends on perspective and my kids were THRILLED beyond belief with the slush we had.We rushed outside first thing (honestly I was worried if we didn't go out first thing it would melt before we could get out there!)

The quality of the snow didn't damper the enthusiasm though. They went "sledding"...Made a snow angel...Tried to make a snowman, even stealing what snow they could get off the van...And had a snowball(slush) fight.

After about 15 minutes, we'd done it all and we headed inside for breakfast. That afternoon we went out in the 55 degree weather in short sleeved shirts and took a walk. So, I guess we should title this post, Snow Morning, instead of Snow Day.

Half a Year Old!!!


I know it is sad when my last post was Rex's 5 month birthday and this is his 6 month post. Oops. I guess not much has been going on in our household. 6 months old finds little Rex grabbing for everything and putting it in his mouth. He loves to roll and will roll all the way across the room to get where he wants to go. He also inchworm crawls by mashing his face into the carpet and pushing himself forward with his feet. He eats like a champ and has lately been very into his biter biscuits. He still isn't the great at sitting up, it is more accurately called slumping over.

He lost his contact 3 times this past month. Grrrr. Fortunately we found it right away twice, this past Sunday it was lost for good. Hopefully losing the contact this often will not become a regular occurance. He also introduced me to the misery that is thrush. I'm not sure how he felt, but it was the most painful thing I've ever experienced.

Happy 6 months Rexy! We love you.

(Doesn't it look like he's saying a prayer??? Either that or saying "I'm done with pictures now.")
