10 Mos, 2 Wks/ 2 Years, 9 Months

Last night i was supposed to host my quilting group but it snowed quite a bit and was really slick-- there was a good deal of ice under the latest crop of snow. My parents are coming to visit this weekend and had told me a couple weeks ago that they hoped the snow would be gone so we could go to the park-- no chance. It's supposed to be in the low 20s for a high for the forseeable future with more snow off and on-- this snow's not going anywhere. So, maybe my parents will settle for some hot chocolate and a trip to the nature museum which we have planned for Saturday. I took Henry there about a year ago and it will be so fun to see him there now that he's bigger and i'm guessing more psyched for everything. I managed to snag the library museum pass for it so we'll all get in for free!

Henry has been making tons of art projects at Ms. Brenda's lately. Most days he has things to bring home and he's so excited to share them. We have a whole wall of our kitchen dedicated to his artwork and he loves putting them up. In his words, "maybe he'll get to do a project today... that would be super fun!"

Silas is just starting to get the hang of this pulling up thing. He has repeatedly pulled-up with success on his leapfrog play table (oh and in the bathtub of all slippery places). I think that other things don't quite give him enough incentive becuase he'll get part of the way up and then just kind of sit back down. He's also working on lowering himself to the ground from a standing position so even though he's still not crawling like a "normal" baby, he's certainly making strides in the mobility department.

I think it is time for Silas to get a mohawk haircut. He has the perfect hair for it. What a great expression, he is obviously doing well. Looking forward to seeing you all soon. Gran
