January 2016

January, we did our best to fight the post-holiday gloom...
The biggest development was Vianne starting a dance class!  Wednesday afternoons at Kids Dance & Fitness, only a five-minute drive from our house.  Her "Creative Movement" class exposes her to beginner moves in ballet, tap, and tumbling, and she LOVES it!  It was pretty surreal buying these...

(Outside the studio after her first class)
Oliver developed a fascination for garbage bags
and still loves books!

He also likes to wear things that aren't his (hats, shoes, etc)

This is his new favorite position on the changing table.  He thinks it's hilarious.  I've actually become quite adept at taking off & replacing the diaper this way.
In Oliver's life manual: If sister is ever on the ground, she must be hugged!

This month he decided "No more high chair!"  We kept Vianne in one until she was over 3 years old 'cause she didn't know any different and we got away with it.  But watching his big sister at the table, he decided that's where he belonged, too - and where he's been since!  He actually does pretty well for a little guy.

Rainy day activity: shaving cream paint

More rainy day activities: homemade playdough
and ice excavations

seed slime
and general silliness

Towards the end of the month, the kids & I headed to Oregon again 'cause I was aching for some time with Rebekah.  Both kids took runny noses up to Oregon with them...
