It's Official...

Rebekah is walking! She has taken a few steps here and there and took about eight steps on Friday, February 5th, but today, I'm making it official. Rebekah walked the width of our playroom twice this morning and did some more walking after lunch today while we were in the living room reading. How exciting for all of us! Of course, she's still a bit wobbley and stiff-legged, but she's well on her way to running around with Elise, any and everywhere! Go, Rebekah, go!!!

Snow Days

It's going to be easier to document our last week in pictures than words because of all the snow we had. The snow started Friday night and ended Saturday afternoon. Then we got another round of snow Tuesday night, ending on Wednesday afternoon. This meant we had a lot of family together time, and thankfully we were able to get a trip to the Y and library in on Tuesday before more snow arrived. I don't mind the snow except for the fact that it's hard to play outside. Elise LOVES the snow because it gives her a chance to be outside for a long time digging. Ray doesn't mind snow in few inch amounts, where it doesn't disrupt life too much, and Rebekah is typically just along for the ride now, but next year we'll see how she really feels about snow.

Elise and Rebekah LOVE going to the grocery store. Beside storytime at the library, it is probably one of their most exciting adventures out of the house during the week. I mean what could be better than having people tell you how cute you are and visiting Mr. Bill at the deli counter for a piece of cheese!?

Elise in particular has become very involved and interested in our trips to the grocery store. She has started writing a grocery list.

She gets to push her own shopping cart and fill it with all of her favorite things- fruits, yogurt, cheese, lunchmeat, ect.

Just this past week, she and Rebekah thought they would start putting the groceries away while I went out to get the rest of the bags. I think they went from being helpful to help yourselves when the blueberries spilled on the floor!
At least it kept them busy!
