Munchkin's new thing is sitting in her bumbo seat. She likes watching her brother play. She bobbles her head and follows him around with her eyes. And you know little man loves an audience! He soaks up all of her attention and tries to get her to play.

Munchkin is now three months! She is a sweet and happy baby. She is starting to be more aware of her surroundings! She stops crying when her big brother talks to her and is also quite interested in the dog, following Juney with her eyes. She smiles when we say her name and turns her head when she hears someone talking. Lately she has been doing quite a bit of talking herself! She is much chattier than I remember her brother being, which does not surprise me at all!! She still loves to snuggle and is all smiles while taking a bath. She is a good little girl!!

We made "cloud dough" using 2 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. It had a fun, silky soft texture but was MESSY! It was very similar to wet sand except it didn't stick to your hands.

We still love bath time! And we love glow sticks too! This time we took the sticks and connected them.
It was a challenging for little man. The hole is pretty small. But a huge sense of accomplishment when he got it!
And we had to turn out the lights to admire the glow.
Here is little munchkin after her bath. She loves being nice and clean!

Yesterday little man turned exactly 2.5 so naturally we had to make a cake. Truthfully, we look for any excuse to bake a cake ... any excuse to eat cake, actually!
We started with a plain old boxed cake mix, added plenty of food coloring and spooned it into a 9 x 13.

Little man loves to play in the snow but sometimes I'm not up for it... So here was the compromise, we brought the snow inside!
I put a towel down and filled a Pyrex dish with fluffy new snow and a few scoops and spoons for playing. It was a huge success! We played in the snow all afternoon, refilling the Pyrex dish several times.
Of course he wanted to put on his gloves and eat the snow.

We spent last week in Ohio! I was pretty worried about a plane ride (with a connection) and both littles but they couldn't have been better!
I opted to skip the stroller and put little munchkin in the moby wrap. She loved it and slept through most of our traveling! I could not believe how good the littles were both there and back. They were polite and cheerful. There were no tears and no potty accidents despite all four flights being delayed.
The days before we left, I deprived little man of his iPad and tv. So he was thrilled to be able to watch his shows and play games on the plane.
We had a nice visit in OH. The babies were spoiled by their grandparents (as always) ...playing in the snow, eating chips, ice cream and of course lots of attention!
