February Happenings

It’s hard to believe February has already come and gone. I can hardly believe that March is here and my baby girl will be one in a few weeks.

Here are some of the happenings for the Boreing family in February:Little Cowboy Helper

Weston loves being in the kitchen with me. He’s learning to wash dishes and is doing a great job with them. Wearing his little cowboy hat in the kitchen is just too cute! Playing Uno

Paxton is such a big kid these days. We’ve been teaching him to play Uno and he’s doing quite well. We’ve spent several of our winter nights playing games with him. It’s so much fun having a child that is old enough to really play games!Snuggles

My days are spent doing lots of snuggling with my little people and the cold February days have been perfect for this!
Daddy Daughter

We didn’t do anything special for Valentine’s Day but I did make sure to take a picture of Miss Cecilia with her daddy on Valentine’s Day! This is a tradition I plan to continue with these two. 11 Months Old

Cecilia was 11 months old on the 20th!

Here are some milestones from 10 to 11 months:

  • Weighed 19#4oz at her checkup
  • Nosy – pulling things out of drawers and cabinets
  • Cut her first tooth (bottom left). It poked through on February 5th
  • Has 2 teeth (bottom)
  • Can stand up without holding on to anything
  • Wearing 12 month clothes
  • Loves feeding herself
  • Nurses about 5 times a day
  • Mostly sleeping through the night – wakes every few nights

She is an absolute joy and such a blessing to our family!

Lego Game

John David’s parents visited in mid-February and brought a lot of Legos that belonged to John David as a child. We’ve had a lot of fun building with Legos in the past few weeks! We have been playing ‘The Lego Game’ as a family. We take a dice and our container of Legos and start building. Whatever number you roll (1-6) is the number of Legos you can add. We all enjoy playing this game. It’s fun creating a wacky Lego structure and it’s great for preschoolers because nobody wins or loses – we just have fun!

Snow Angel

We woke up to a surprise snow on February 24. There wasn’t a lot of snow but there was enough to get out and play for a bit. The boys enjoyed making snow angels.

Cecilia and I even dressed up and went out for a few minutes!Baby's First Snow

She really liked touching the snow and she probably would have stayed out much longer and ate a lot of snow but I thought it was too chilly for a baby to be out too long.

February Snow

We had a ‘big snow’ the next day. It started snowing on Wednesday evening, February 25th and we woke up to a winter wonderland the next day! The boys had a big time playing in this snow!

They built a pretty big snowman with their daddy and even gave him a real carrot nose (they were tickled that I gave them a real carrot!)Busy Girl

Cecilia is more of a toddler than a baby these days and she’s into everything! Her favorite spot in the house currently is a drawer in the bathroom that contains her daddy’s hair cutting kit, beard balm, nail clippers (nothing dangerous or hazardous). If the bathroom door is left open, you better believe she’ll be exploring that drawer! She also enjoys the ‘kid’ drawer in the kitchen and rearranges the dishes in there and she also enjoys pulling clothes and diapers out of her dresser. It’s adorable to watch her pull things out and then put them back in – such serious work for a little one!Mama and Pax

The last weekend of the month, Paxton and I had a date. We ran several errands and went out to a favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch. What a joy this boy is and it was neat to have a child with me running errands but not have to undo any carseats (he is able to buckle and unbuckle himself in his booster)! We also decided that dates need to happen more often.
