watching turtles at the Montshire
climbing up a chair, around the counter, over the stove and sink to snag the m&m's from on top of the fridge
making pictures in the snow with our snowshoes
jumping in puddles on a yucky snow-melting day

We put Adara on skis for the first time on Friday, and she immediately put her hands on her knees and started going. She loved it! Emily was excited too, and it really starting to get the hang of the snowplow (or 'pizza wedge') and even a little bit of turning/watching where she's going. :) On Saturday we went out again, this time with Mimi and Papa. We didn't get any video until towards the end when they were tired (working on living in the moment!), but it was a good time. After skiing, swimming, and a makeup gymnastics class with Daddy, the girls slept well last night!

Emily has had some great commentary on pregnancy lately.
Over Christmas at Heather Lane, she was coloring with Ruth (the fabulous woman who lives with Granny and also works at CCEF) and asking if there was still snow at our house in New Hampshire. Ruth responded that she didn't know and that Emily should ask her momimy. Without missing a beat, Emily says, "Mommy doesn't know anything." She went on to explain, "It's because she has a baby in her tummy." Apparently she took my explanations that having a baby in your belly sometimes makes you forget things a little further than I meant.
Now that I am really showing, she's amazed by how big my belly is. She told friend who was working in the nursery last week that "Mommy's belly is as big as an exercise ball!" and then yesterday after staring at me seriously for a minute, came out with, "Mom... I think you are as big as God!" You ain't seen nothin' yet kiddo... :)
Here are the girls getting some baby brother practice with sweet Ollie Jorgensen!
