What We've Been Doing Lately

Well, we've been hit pretty hard by the snow recently...but its resulted in some warm and snugly times spent indoors. Here's our house during the last snowstorm:

And here's our poor giant pine tree. The weight from the wet snow broke off several branches leaving it looking like someone took a huge bite out of it. We had to move my car out of the driveway for fear that snow would be the least of my problems when I had to go to work in the morning.

Norrin was recently moved into a big boy bed. We had almost a full week of restless, wild nights in the family bed and that was all the sign we needed that it was time to move our lil man into his own bed in his own room. If I needed more confirmation, it came the first night when he fell asleep in the first ten minutes that he was in his new bed. He's got a comforter covered in robots, he turns on his fan every night before he gets under his covers (he likes the white noise just like his mama) and on more than one occasion, he's found a cat buried under the covers with him.

As the weather continues to stay chilly, Rolo has found extra warmth next to our space heater.

Da has been taking lots of close ups of his handsome lil boy:

In between snuggles with Rolo:

I'm not sure when Norrin decided that the cats couldn't walk anyplace by themselves. He carries Rolo everywhere explaining that they're going in the kitchen to eat or to the living room to sit on the couch under the blanket. Scout is too fat for him to carry, so he makes me or Da carry Scout someplace.

One of Norrin's new favorite places to sit...not really sure this is the most comfortable seat in the house.

Snuggles with Da:

Time for Peek-a-boo:

Where's Ma's kisses?

The morning we took Norrin to the doctor, I had him practice saying "Ahhh". He liked it a lot. And by the time we got to the doctor's, he was well rehearsed and performed like we took him to the doctor every day :). I was very proud of how fearless he was.

Here's a picture of Da taken by Norrin. Not too shabby, eh?

Norrin's favorite snack...this week :).

Every time one of us has to leave, we have a game we play that I can't even tell you when it began. Norrin gives us kisses through the gate at the top of the stairs. We have to kiss him through every single space. Its pretty cute and has resulted in fewer tantrums.

And last, but not least, the winter boredom must be getting to Norrin because Da caught him dropping miniature marshmallows into the grate that we have yet to replace.

And that's just a snippet of what's going on here. Norrin is extremely chatty and its pretty funny to hear what he'll say from one day to the next. Some new favorites:
"I missed you today, Ma"
"Da make dinner for you, Ma"
"Shhhh, Da sleeping"
"No, I do it. You get away, Ma. Get away"
"I snuggle with you, Ma"
And there's singing every day. Norrin is constantly working on singing his ABC's. He's got the tune pretty good...he just needs to learn the letters :).
