i used to hate hate winter before i was married.
but i think that i was just bitter that i had nobody to cuddle with. ha.
we have been doing some fun things together lately.
those winter blues got nothin' on us!
we won't mention the fact that each outing ends promptly with a defiant meltdown...
(courtesy of jane, not jeff ;)
i feel like such a mom when things like that happen. jeff gets so embarrassed but i just kind of shrug and revel in the fact that I'm totally a mom!
i've been feeling like a mom a lot lately.
(yes i realize i am a mom, but it is still a bit exciting and surreal to me :)
there are these two little teeth popping in on jane's bottom gums.
these unwanted visitors have barged into our lives like they owned the place and caused many tantrums and tears.
im not looking forward to meeting their equally intrusive neighbors in the (probably) near future.
oh and blowouts? maybe it is a coincidence that she has ruined every outfit for the past week, but i'll go ahead and blame it on the teething as well.
the joys of motherhood. (and i actually do really mean that.) because although jane has been having a rough time, i've had a lot of opportunities to comfort her in ways only a mother can. and cuddle her, and make her laugh...and oh man that little girl lights up my life! i love that as she gets older and develops more of her personality, i really do feel like she is my friend. she is just my best little friend.
anyways, here are some pictures of our recent wintry shenanigans.
a couple days later, just like every other person in utah- we went to the ice castles. also I'm pretty sure we were all there at the same time as everyone in utah because that place was packed! it was so cool though. literally! (punny stuff.)
the ice castles were sweet. we had fun going with kim and caleb and her 2 kids. sam 'stole' one of the icicles for a souvenir. it didn't last long.
after jane snapped out of her rage, she was exhausted.
sweet little girl.
