two and a half and one...

hello my sweets.  it's nearly the end of the next month and i've been delinquent in posting…because life is busy with you two.  so here we go.  this month was filled with train rides...
sled rides...
getting your first ski passes for next season from sugarloaf...
celebrating birthdays...
and wearing matching jammies...
okay jazzy bear.  you are one now!  what a sweet year…fast, beautiful, and snuggle-filled.  this past month has been about:

chilly mornings...(especially on mornings without heat!)...
going out to dinner (you should have seen the floor below you…oh vey!)...
hikes...
independent eating/covering everything you own with yogurt...
riding the plasma car...
dressing for success...
reading special cards from special great grammies...
and look at what a difference a year makes (easter 2014 versus easter 2015) on deedee's shoulder...
and my sweet you turned one year old.  here you are displaying the aftermath...
looking dapper...
wearing girlie hand-me-downs...
boy am i glad you are here in this world.  you are such a gift.  a wiggly, silly, sweet gift.  love you love you love you.

and miss maeve.  you are two and a half and just a hoot.  this month you loved boots…snow boots, rain boots, mud boots, and my boots...
crawling into small spaces...
meeting amos and blueberry at sugarloaf...
and your mind may have been blown watching amos ride the chairlift...
you play the harmonica...
you hung up your artwork from school and had an art show (and got to stand on the counter with your pieces)...
you are an incredible artist.  i bought you a canvas and this was your first official piece…you used a brush and glorious shades of blue and green.  it's gorgeous...
on your next canvas you used your feet and hands…and knees and thighs.  a full body artist!  we spent lots of time cleaning up in the sink.  playing at the sink is probably your favorite thing.  you get your chair, your apron, some toys, and just splash and suds and rinse and repeat...
this month was the first time you wore tights (you aren't a dress girl) and you loved the idea...
you had your first girl scout cookie ("scout cookie") this month.  thin mints…well played lady...
we took this just before facetiming with nana...
we unearthed the chalk now that the driveway is clear...
we played in the cadillac...
we collected easter eggs at the farm with friends in the snow (?!?!).  you only wanted one of each color...
and my dear, on this particular day you wore overalls and a striped shirt and pigtails.  be still my heart.
and now this month's videos…

a little kazoo and harmonica duet...


another duet with interpretive dance...


and some sibling love.  jazzy you were laying on the floor getting your snowsuit on and maeve you came up and laid on top of jasper and started hugging and kissing and holding his face.  it was adorable...

okay you two.  a quick blog post…and like every post it gives me the time to reflect on how sweet the last 30 days have been.  each month just keep getting better and better.  love you both…hugs hugs hugs.
