February Roundup

This will be a quick update, because February was a quick month. Grandmari came to visit for a few days to celebrate my Grandma Mimi's 87th birthday and it was fun to have her here, and to see my grandma a few times during the month. The rest of the month was spent preparing for baby boy's arrival. We are pretty much ready at home and at work, so I'm feeling pretty relaxed right now.

Now that we are ready, I've also been trying to spend as much time as I can with Sophie since her "only child" status will be expiring next week. She really is a good girl, and I know getting a brother will be a great thing for her down the road, but I do feel a bit guilty for what I'm about to put her through. We went to our usual places, but also went swimming at the rec center a couple times and the weather finally warmed up enough for us to visit a few parks.

One Sunday this month was our Stake Conference - always a joy with kids. This time we brought a couple cans of play doh and it kept her busy for almost 40 minutes. I actually got to listen to some of the talks!

We went to the farm twice this month now that the weather was warmer. It was our first visit since last fall and Sophie was so excited ride the ponies again. 

Sophie has become really good at playing by herself on a regular basis, a skill she's going to need when baby brother arrives.

One day she wanted to make a rocket ship from a box (something she saw on Daniel Tiger) so Dave got her a box and coloring it kept her busy for almost a week. Kids really do love an empty box!
