Hey Good Lookin'

Jonah loves to check himself out in the mirror, I mean with his Daddy's dashing good looks, who wouldn't want to stare at him all day long! We put his little play mirror up in his crib so that he could check himself out, just like his big sister did when she was his age. He really enjoys hanging out in his crib tapping on the mirror, smiling and talking away to himself.

Snow Part 2

The snow stuck around for about 3 days, I think that is the longest we have had snow on the ground here in the Carolinas, at least that I can recall. So needless to say when Sophie woke up on day 2 and saw that there was still snow on the ground she had to get out and play in it again. It was Daddy's turn this time and man did they have a blast! The snow had gotten a nice coating of sleet on top of it the first night and made for some great sledding down our front yard and on the street in front of our house....don't worry folks we live on a cul-de-sac so we weren't sending our precious little 3 year old careening into to traffic. No snow angels for Sophie and Daddy just an awesome igloo and sledding on her skateboard just like last year. Click HERE to see last year's snow pictures.
