The Blizzard Warnings last night started to make me nervous....well I think the blizzard conditions were more for the mountains and some other areas of Southern Arizona. But you can see that we did get some great snow - and in the middle of the day! It made everyone pretty cheerful around here. The teachers took the kids outside for just a few minutes. It snowed for about 2 hours and Seth was outside for most of that. He made a few little snowmen. I went out just for a short snowball fight. It snowed a little bit more at dinner time and Rhianna and Seth headed out again and then we had another round of hot chocolate. What a fun different day for us here in Tucson!

4 Months

Today Maren is 4 months old. We are having so much fun with her. She was sick a week ago with a yucky cough and lots of mucus going on, but she is better now. She is starting to get even more vocal. She can push with her legs and scoot around backwards on the floor. She can grab at things and hold toys for a little while. She is champion thumb sucker and super cute when she does it. I think she has discovered her tongue and she keeps sticking it out. She still has a slightly goopy eye- the tear duct still must be blocked. She still only poops every few days. She is chunky and smiley and has a great laugh and we all just love her.

The kids in November...

Surprise - Seth lost another tooth on Sunday! I guess it was more loose than he thought. He was just messing with it with his tongue while in the bathroom and it popped right out. So now he has 2 little baggies of tiny baby teeth he is carrying around to show his friends.

Wiggly Tooth - Now Out!

I loved it when Seth discovered a few weeks ago that he had 2 wiggly teeth - he said it in such a cute way. So he has been wiggling and drooling and one of those front teeth was so super loose this week. I hate pulling teeth. So Rhianna offered and discovered she doesn't like pulling other people's teeth much either. I think it was just that last little bit of pain Seth was worried about. Finally on Friday morning he let Steve pull it out super quick. This makes Seth the youngest of our kids to lose a tooth. He is 5yrs3m, Rand was 5yrs6m, and Rhianna was just past 6yrs.
