You know, January. What can be done with this month?? Almost over but there you go. Blah. Louis asked me about space the other day and planets. Tried to explain earth and the universe but it got complicated fast. Showed him this video which was all I could think to do. Not sure if it helped.

Only a month before his 3rd birthday…still crawls into our bed for early morning snugs every other night but that’s okay. Finally got to decorate his room after waiting since I was seriously pregnant with him to do so! Lots of love in the room – handstitched robot quilt from Auntie Charlotte (plus other quilts from Grandmas and Genevieves), my old sheets and dresser, dreamcatcher made by Uncle Justin, a couple of awesome hand printed cards from Brooklyn friends Valerie and Ian (Valerian), plus endless thrift store finds lovingly hoarded by this Mom.

Freezing All Week…

Both babies at home with me (too cold to walk to school) and Pat is taking French classes until 10:40pm each night (I know to the minute the time he walks in the door). Sanity somewhat still in place…the first photo is my drawing of Louis and the last drawing is Louis’s drawing of me.

I watch every night with Louis before bed. No kidding – maybe for 2 months now. Never gets old this one.

Thinking about casting this in cement and painting it the same color blue. Bought a pure beeswax candle that smells like honey and a little perfectly weighted gold holder thingy at this Waldorf shop I stumbled on the other day…might also try another one that is cut in two for 2 candles…

Walk to School

Walking to Louis’s school a couple weeks ago – the day before was so beautiful – snow everywhere and falling – I could only use the sled. Wish I brought my camera with me that day…

Accomplished 1 non-kid oriented thing today. Not bad.
