Based on responsibilities at different locations, I took Grace to school while Erin took Abby and Lilly to Day Care.  Grace and I were leaving a few moments before them.  Erin was nursing Lilly.  Grace and I completed the departure ritual — don’t forget the backpack with lunch, got in the car.  In the meantime, Abby watched us leaving without realizing that she was heading to Day Care with her Mom.

In a soft and sincere voice:  “Daddy, please don’t forget me….”

I smiled knowing that no matter what, I won’t.

Snowy Day

Today all schools were closed and so everyone was at home to enjoy the snowfall.  Lilly was non-plussed but did attempt to make a snow angel before calling it a day.  Grace and Abby enjoyed tasting snow, making snow angels and of course, knocking lots of snow off of everything they could touch.  Add to that hot cocoa when they got back inside, and a good day was had by all.

3 months with Jessica Bear

3 months with Jessica Bear

Because she’s a little overachiever (well, actually I don’t know when babies are supposed to roll over really) Ms. Lilly chose today to wake herself up rolling from tummy to back and then at day care today, she rolled from tummy to back. We’ll see if this is a skill that she continues to exhibit or if she just knew that she was 3 months old today and so should do something special to mark the date.

Today’s Jessica Bear picture is special because she’s wearing a shirt which her grandmother Vicki selected and of course it has “cowgirls unlimited” on it, because what granddaughter of my mother’s wouldn’t be a cowgirl?

Grace is taking her turn showing her stuff at swim lessons

Grace is taking her turn showing her stuff at swim lessons

Today was Grace’s first day of swim lessons at a new pool and we’re really happy with the instructor and the time that was spent on Grace. The location is really good too; while Grace swims, we can head to Pullen Park for 30 minutes and then come back! Of course, this time because the train and the boats were closed, and it was raining, after a ride or two on the carousel, Abby wanted to see what Grace was up to, and so off we trotted to see how swim lessons were going. Grace is really getting much better with her confidence in the water, and maybe by this summer she’ll legitimately know how to swim!

She starts daycare today, however, she’ll be back with us in a week, so lets all cross our fingers that our little lady does well at making friends!

Disney on Ice

Disney on Ice

Somehow it’s become a tradition to attend Disney on Ice during the holidays– fortunately for Abby, this year was a great time for her to join in on the tradition. The girls loved the celebrations and loved seeing some of their favorite princesses.
