Sliding in the Snow!

On Monday, it finally snowed a somewhat substantial amount. Yay! Kaidrei has dance on Monday morning, so I got both girls bundled in their snowsuits and in the stroller and headed over. Only once I got there did I remember that it was President's Day so there was no class. Oops! The bad part was that Kaidrei was so upset when we couldn't go in to dance. We compromised by playing in the snow. We walked back to the park - at a very leisurely pace since Kaidrei kept stopping to make snow angels in random yards. Once at the park she had a blast going down the slides and watched the other kids sledding. We are going to have to get a sled so she can try it sometime.

Here is a snippet of her going down the slide....

This was the second time she went down and she just loved shooting off the end and landing in the soft snow.

Our Cautious Walker

Malea really can walk, when she stops thinking about it! She is super cautious but in the last few days she has finally let go and taken some steps on her own. Tonight we caught the action on tape with the help of Kaidrei behind the camera!

I love that Malea was enjoying herself enough to sign for more. I love that Kaidrei was so excited for Malea's success. I just love my sweet girls and amazing husband - what more can I say than that!

Curly hair

This morning I thought I'd compare Kaidrei's hair curly vs. the straight pictures I posted a while ago. When I was taking the pictures I noticed how curly Malea's hair has gotten too!

Superbowl Sunday

In an attempt to watch the superbowl with minimal interruptions we let the girls watch a movie in their room. The real surprise of the day was when Kaidrei wanted me to straighten her hair after watching me straighten mine.
