February tends to be a busy month with Valentine's Day and Aaron's Birthday.
And while we love any excuse to celebrate, open gifts, have a date night, and go with the flow as life pushes us forward, it's always nice to get back to the ebb.
Although grocery shopping on Mondays, laundry day Tuesdays, and daily trips to the park are nothing to write home about, they are what make life what it is. And sometimes the down time can be just as fun and canteen filling as wild activity packed weekends.
It has been this down time which has showed me that Grace is a lot more clever than I give her credit for. She figured out how to get to the figurines on the bookshelf by flipping her bucket upside-down and balancing on it.
She was pretty proud of herself, and to be honest, I was pretty impressed with her skills.
You can only let your baby get away with so many things until they do something like this.
After an afternoon with a friend and her small baby, Grace was reminded no less than 400 times "Gracie, we don't touch the baby, we just look." After baby Max left and the seat remained, I let her play pretend with a stuffed animal that she could touch all she wanted.
And she proceeded to point out his tongue and sticking out her own. I had no idea she knew that, and wouldn't have believed my eyes had I not snapped a picture at the very same moment.
Now we're heading into March. In like a lion, out like a lamb. Or is it the other way around?
