|A huge thank you to grandparents in Japan for sending over these authentic ninja costumes for playing dress up! |
Including tabi shoes! Halloween prep is now done and dusted!
Dear Maya and Emi,
It's been another long stretch between posts. February was a bit busier than most years in terms of meetings, appointments, etc. We also had the most roller coaster-like weather patterns I can remember, with t-shirt weather days proceeding huge nor'easters on several occasions!
Maya, you also had your mid-winter break from school. We had a few day trip ideas in mind but ended up doing a few other things instead that week. The first of these was a quick trip to a small local zoo on a beautiful warm day (though there were leftover snowbanks in the parking lot).
Later that afternoon, Maya, you agreed to do a fun princess photo shoot with mommy. I had a few locations in mind, but the one that we ended up at is a favorite of yours, too. It's a town where they used to produce a lot of iron, so there is colorful blue slag left allll around. To you, it's like treasure!
Then the very next day Grandma and Papa Stan picked you two up in the snow (see, I told you the weather was ridiculous) to spend the day with you AND keep you overnight. Both of you! What a wonderful treat for you guys AND for mommy and Baba!
Other than that it's been a normal month of school, homework, reading, dance class, indoor play like games and crafts, and outdoor play in the snow or in the mud depending on the day. Oh, the occasional break to play with Snapchat is pretty funny, too.
|Super happy to greet the dance teachers at the beginning of class!|
You two argue a LOT lately (though strangely if you take a bath together you get along so well!) But you also make us laugh every day and we love you even when we're pulling our hair out! Parenthood in a nutshell! So, mommy's going to go take advantage of your being in bed now and rest.
Love you both!
