totally two and eleven months...

being behind on posting this blog feels about right…seems like we are always playing catch up and a bit (or a lot) behind.  anyways…the photo above was from the national toboggan championships at the snowbowl.  and below, we now own two pair of kiddo sunglasses, so we eat dinner with someone wearing glasses a few nights a week.  but both of you on the same night is rare...
this month we had a fun outing to flatbread pizza.  jasper, you love pizza as much as me, maybe more...
maeve, you loved playing with the dough, getting flour everywhere, and watching the pizzas cook in the oven.  oh, and we went in our jammies.  christmas jammies, in fact...
with all the snow we've been limited in where we can go with the stroller, so we take lots of walks to madeleine point. i'm so excited to take you guys there this summer!
jasper, you are cruising.  pulling up on everything and getting around.  you love pulling up on legs or chairs so you can see people...
maeve…this month you grew into a two year old.  with more opinions, more words, and so much playing.  even with a little more whining, you are still so happy 95% of the time.  this month has been filled with…

fancy dining...
helping shovel (lots)...
looking cool...
walking hobbes...
sorting clothes and making mini-beds of clothes...
playing with nana's dollhouse...
meeting the worlds smallest nesting dolls...
trying to fit into jazz's carseat...
playing school with caroline...
going sledding [read: sitting and eating munchkins] with friends...
getting a surprise visit from dee-dee after sledding.  your expression and the fact that you are about as tall as you are wide when wearing you winter gear makes me smile so much...
impersonating amelia earhart...
pigtails!
a few things to remember from the month for you maeve: how much you love when your deedee and nana are in the same place, doing your your boy and girl puzzle, getting wrapped up like a baby after bath time, your love of the rear window wiper and christmas light spottings from the car, studying the alphabet with your foam bath letters, chairlift excitement, eating your first donut hole, current evening routine (bath, maeve and finn puzzle, taxi dog, and the finger game), your arms flung out to the side midway down the hill when you got up the courage to go down a HUGE sledding hill alone, and watching eat your first girl scout cookie.

jasper, this month brought you from baby to toddler…and oh my are you cute.  you and cousin eve had lots of playtime...
you and hobbes love your floor time...
and you are so into food...
and i can't believe how few photos i captured of you this month.  it made me really sad.  sorry, buddy…it is no representation of how much i adore you!  a few things to remember from this month: your adorable wave, your sideburns, clapping, four teeth, standing in your crib, reliably sleeping through the night, grinding your teeth, woofing like a dog, and eating finger foods faster than we can put them down.

together we went to sugarloaf…twice!  we did lots of sledding...
sat on a chairlift (that wasn't moving)...
hiked around...
took the dogs along for our family walk...
braved the cold…brrr...
and played together for a long time.  jasper you crawled right up to maeve who was in your carseat with her passie and grabbed it out.  maeve you smiled immediately even amidst your surprise...
and shared your winter wonderland with a friend...
and here are a few videos from the month.  first, maeve your first time skiing on your own!!!
second, team drinking...

and lastly, tandem spinning...


by the time this is posting, we're well into your next moth, which is a heart-bursting handful…and everyone is on the moooooove all over the place! anyways, i friggin' love you guys! so much! xo.
