Long Overdue

I've been a terrible blogger lately.  Sorry about that.

Honestly, things around here have been pretty dull.  I'm NOT complaining, in fact, I prefer it that way, but it makes for pretty boring writing. 

The kids had a really fun weekend.  After a big storm on Saturday, they got to help Daddy shovel the snow. Jovie would have stayed out there for hours if we would have let her.  We also put together a Gingerbread House.  The kids thought that was a blast, but promptly started eating the candy off the roof later that night. Otherwise, we just watched all of the big college football games.

Carter has had a good couple of days.  He's had a lot of therapy lately, and it seems to be paying off.  He still has a very hard time lifting his head while he's on his tummy, BUT his upper trunk is definitely getting stronger.  He's not as wobbly when you hold him in the sitting position.  He's been rolling from side to side like crazy.  In fact, his vision therapist could not get him to stay on one side to concentrate on a toy the other day.  Carter just wanted to show off his motor skills instead.  Too cute!  He's obsessed with the Christmas tree, and would lay on the floor staring at it all day if we let him. I had been holding off on the solid foods lately with everything that happened on Thanksgiving, but decided to start him back up today.  He's still trying to learn what to do with the spoon, but he tries very hard.  That's all I can ask of him.  Here are some pics of him looking at me like "Get out of my way woman, I'm lookin' at my Christmas tree"

I'm going outside right now to shovel about 2 feet of snow. Oh how I miss California, Yuck!

Cute, cute, cute kids. Carter looks extra snuggly in those pajamas!

You know, the snow looks pretty and fun ... but I am so glad not to live in it! :) Carter is adorable as always, and WOW is he doing great! I always love when my Peanut gives her therapists a hard time. It shows that she has the will and ability to be spunky!
