Sheer Joy

A few of my new years resolutions are to spend more time outside and to spend more time reading to and/or teaching Brady and Anna Belle. Brady recently got a new bike, so we walk a lot more. We made it out to Coles Mill, which is a WONDERFUL walk from our house. We go through green belt, a wooded path, past a fishing pond, and a duck pond on the very short walk. The best part was seeing these joyful faces from my kiddos.
This makes me giggle every time I look at it.
This is Brady's face when he calls someone a silly goose.
The fam came over to our house to celebrate Grammy's birthday. The cousins' new favorite game it to chase and wrestle with Sam. At Papa's house, they run in circles. At my house, they dart around the trampoline. Sam's a trooper.
A random afternoon art project with Brady.
I am VERY pleased to announce that Anna Belle slept in her crib last night. After almost 11 months of nursing through the night in our bed, I was delighted that she transitioned into her crib last night. She slept from 8:30 pm to 5:30 am with NO CRYING! Praise the Lord... I didn't think it was possible. I hope we can keep up this new schedule. I'm so used to not really sleeping at night, that I couldn't sleep. I slept from about 9:30 pm to 2:00 am, and then couldn't get back to sleep. I'm sure my body will start catching up soon.
