Wasn’t I just writing a farewell to January??? Why do the first few months of the year go by so quickly?? February was filled with lots of fun, like babywearing mini sessions, surprises (one of my best friends is PREGNANT!!!), and overall joy. I am enjoying the last few days I have left until my Little Minion turns one and my Tiny Dictator turns five and starts kindergarten.
It astonishes me everyday how much my children change everyday. February 1 my littlest wasn’t yet standing up and today she pulls up on everything. In the past month my son has learned new words, like tardy and new things, like solar systems, and is continuing to amaze me with his math prowess (totally not inherited from me). My greatest prayer and wish is that I can be the mother they need to be everyday. And many many days I fail. Miserably. I’m thankful for Grace and that both of them have incredibly forgiving hearts. They don’t expect much from me, just to love them (and serve them nutella sandwiches and juice).
February was Snowmageddon month here in Clarksville, Tennessee and even Nashville was hit with quite a bit. We were trapped inside for what seemed like forever, and since Fort Campbell was shut down for a couple of days, Husband enjoyed some off time with us. We didn’t play in the snow much (only about as long as it took to shovel the driveway), but we greatly enjoyed our newly cleaned fireplace. There was lots of warmth in our home on those days. Lots of cabin fever, but lots of heart as well.
Before the snow could melt, we were hit with the Clarksville stomach bug. Let me just say, this was probably the worst bug I’ve had in a very VERY long time. Tiny Dictator was the lucky one to catch it first, followed by my poor Little Minion, then myself, then Husband bringing up the rear. My house has never smelled cleaner, as we all walked around in a fog of Lysol to avoid getting the ickies again.
February was a month of fun, but I’m actually happy to see it go, in favor of slightly warmer temperatures and SUNLIGHT! Beloved, blessed sunlight that has been so scarce this winter is slowly making it’s way back into our lives, and we are thrilled! Next step, cleaning the pool and gearing up for the inevitable birthday parties!
Happy March everyone!
