A New Month and Another Milestone

Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty regular as far as events go. We pretty much just did what we always do. We did welcome in February, though. It’s hard to believe that January is already come and gone. Time sure flies!

The Weekly Weather: We’ve had typical January/February weather. Cool days and a few rather cold nights (I pulled my outdoor succulents into the garage so they wouldn’t be negatively impacted…which was good because we did get frost covering everything one night). Smatterings of rain, but no big storms. The past few days have been rather pleasant. We haven’t even needed jackets in the afternoons.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work and at home. He also went in for a day of jury duty which was LOADS of fun. 😉

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been pretty much just pluggin’ along with my normal stuff, too.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s scootin’ along in school (loves his GT class that he goes to once a week) and enjoyed getting to build a “secret base” at the park with friends (no pictures because a) I left my phone in the car and realized it too late and b) it’s secret!). I love that our park has a ton of big oak trees around which the kids can run around and play.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: We’ve moved her from her high chair to a booster seat at the table (this is the milestone referred to in the title). We’ve also taught her (for the most part, haha) that plates are vessels for food and stay on the table…they don’t get upended, sending food skyward.

This Week in Pictures:

Sitting in her new-to-her seat (it used to be Joseph’s). She loves the fact that it happens to be a cow, haha. She also loves getting to use her Minnie Mouse plate and fork.
Walking home from picking Joseph up from school. She’s independent but not able to bolt, haha.
The ever-so-popular “after school snack” is a must in our house.
I decked out the piano with my “Love Day” decorations.
I also put up my door decoration. I can’t believe it’s held up this long. I used a chunk of burlap ribbon, pipe cleaners, and string. It probably cost less than $5.00 to make and I’ve had it for several years now.
I also put up my paper hearts. I’m so grateful my friend Mandy gave me her stash of scrapbook paper when she no longer needed it. I’ve done a lot of fun things with it.
A new quote for a new month. This was said (or written) by someone named Zora Neale Hurston. She was an African-American anthropologist and author from the early 20th century. Her most popular work is the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God.
Joseph and Paul had a fun day at the park the other day.
I love the big trees there!
Joseph used his Christmas money from Grandma to get Beyblades.
He was able to get the starter kit where two Beyblades come with a battle arena. He was pretty excited.
We went to the farmer’s market in Old Town Helotes today, and Joseph had to pose on this tiny wagon. He wanted a “stoic wagon-driver face” which I agreed to…
…as long as I got a smiley picture, too. 😉
Bonus video! Abigail loves to “lead” the music when I sing our nightly “Happy Family” song.
