Our Year So Far....

I know I drifted from "blogging" for a while. Sorry!!! I'm going to try to update more often!
Here are a few things that have been going on with us this year....
Josie in the dress that Nana got her with dogs like Zoey's on it.

Josie's new baby

"L" is for lion....ROAR!!!!

Josie is learning how to use a "big girl" swing!

And she can climb up the slide all by herself!

This is what happens in the car on the way home from a long day when you refuse to take a nap. One day she'll hate me for this, but I'm getting my revenge!

We're growing Josie's bangs out. This is her "pig-tail" look.

And that's basically what's been new with us lately!

Valentine's Day

Lane and I have never made a big deal out of Valentine's day. I personally think it means more to do something "sweet" for each other on a random day in June, rather than a particular day that we're supposed to do something nice for each other. So, we typically just exchange cards. But I want all holidays to be something meaningful, fun and special for Josie...especially now that she's getting big enough to really understand what's going on.
One of my favorite Valentine's day memories was always making my mom's special Valentine's day cookies. We've been watching our weight at our house, so this year we opted for a low-fat version (and ended up throwing half of them away). We had a great time making them, and that was the whole idea anyway.
Eating sprinkles, rather than decorating! A couple of times I handed her an iced cookie to decorate, and she immediately popped it in her mouth.
