Rainy Day Fun for Toddlers in PDX

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

I know I've complained about it before, but it's been really rainy in Portland this winter. Like really really rainy. And when you have a busy toddler that you're trying to entertain all day, it can be a little challenging when you can't get outside to go for walks or go to the park for days on end. Luckily, Portland has lots of great indoor activities that are perfect for little ones and so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites that Henry and I have discovered so far!

 
 (And yes, I realize it's a little ironic I'm posting this now considering it's supposed to be in the 70's and sunny for the rest of the week. But it looks like the rain is going to be back the following week so I thought I'd just go ahead and share this today for future reference!)

OMSI 
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry has this kids' Science Playground that's perfect for toddlers! There's a water play area, a sand play area, blocks, a woodland area, and lots of other fun areas that are great for littles to explore. The nice thing is that it's all in one room, but that's also the downfall because it can get really crowded! (Especially on a rainy day!) Kids under 3 are free which is nice, but adult tickets + parking can add up after a few visits so a membership is a great idea if you're planning on going more than a few times.

The Children's Museum is a quite a bit larger than OMSI and things are spread out over a variety of different rooms, which can be a nice in helping it feel less cramped. However, it does get really crowded on the weekends so be warned! Some of the stuff here is a little beyond what Henry's into at the moment, but there are all sorts of different activities so it's great for him to be able to try different things. They do charge for children over age 1 though, so a membership can be a good way to go!

Kid-friendly Cafes
Portland has lots of great cafes where you can get a coffee or lunch and your toddler can play, making them great spots for play dates! In Northeast, Roseway Play Cafe is awesome! (It's actually where we had Henry's birthday party!) The owners are really nice, it's super cute and clean, and there are lots of fun toys. The set up is great because the play area is separated from the cafe, but there is a big cutout where you can sit and easily watch your kids play, which is nice. The only thing I don't like about Roseway (at least right now) is there is this play structure with a slide and Henry doesn't really get that he's not supposed to climb up the bottom of the slide...ha. So if there are older kids trying to slide down, I feel like I have to constantly monitor him which is a little annoying...but I'm sure he'll grow out of this phase eventually. Another cute place in North Portland is POA Cafe; it's a little more "fancy hipster" and super Instagram-able. The play area is smaller and it's not gated off so it can be a little challenging to actually keep adventurous toddlers from running through the cafe. But they've got lots of books and magnets and other fun toys, and the food is great!

Henry seems to really enjoy music and there are a number of musicians here in Portland specifically geared towards kids. However, the only one we've had a chance to see so far is Mr. Ben, but he's great and perfect for the toddler set! He plays at various restaurants and cafes around Portland, and it's a perfect thing to do when the weather is not so hot.

 I just checked this out for the first time last week after hearing about it from a few different people, and Henry really liked it! It's held out in their soccer dome and there aren't really that many toys or things for the kids to play with. But there is a big padded floor that kids can play on, as well as a trampoline, and it's just a nice place for toddlers to have open space to run around! Plus, it's only $5 and it's a good place to go if you just want a change of scenery and a space where your kiddo can run without having to stand out in the rain.

I just checked out this toy store on N. Williams for the first time the other day and it's so neat! They carry lots of high-quality toys, primarily from Europe that are more old fashioned, not battery powered, with lots made out of wood. But the best part is they have this super-cute play area! Henry has had a blast playing here whenever we've stopped in and he usually has the play area to himself. Plus, the toy store is right near one of my favorite coffee shops, Ristretto Roasters, so grabbing a coffee and letting your toddler play here is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. (And it's actually just down the street from POA Cafe too!)

I'd seen this on Facebook for awhile now, but finally checked it out for the first time. It's held at Thunder Elite All-Star Cheerleading in Clackamas, so it's a little bit of a hike from Portland, but it's a lot of fun for toddlers! They had a parachute, blocks, and lots of fun other toys perfect for young kids. The floors are padded and there is a trampoline and some squishy mats the kids can jump on. The space is pretty open so it's a good place to let them run around, and it wasn't too crowded the day I went. It's only once a week, but for only $5, it's a fun thing to do on a gloomy day.

Only in Portland would a brewery be a good place to toddlers....but it really is! Hopworks Urban Brewery has two locations and they do a Tot Tuesday (or Thursday, depending on which location) once a month. Plus, their breweries have a very kid-friendly atmosphere and have play areas. (The play area at the Powell location is a little bit bigger, just FYI)

One rainy day activity I wasn't such a fan of was PlayDate PDX, so I just thought I'd throw it out there for any other toddler parents. Granted, the day I went was really rainy and it was a weekend but it was CHAOS. There were so many kids and the play structures are really designed for children who are older. There is a very small "toddler" area but older kids kept cutting through and knocking Henry over, and it was just a huge headache. I'd definitely save this one until your kiddos are older for sure!
 
Finally, there are a few other indoor activities on my radar that I haven't had a chance to check out yet, but I thought I'd link them here as well in case anyone is interested!

The libraries here in Portland have a specific story/music time for each age group, and I used to love taking Henry to Book Babies when he was younger. It hasn't worked out with our schedule to check this out now that he's older, but I'm hoping we can go soon!

All of the Portland Community Centers offer a bunch of different indoor activities for toddlers (ages 1-5) that look really fun (and are really inexpensive!) so I'd love to check some of these out! Some of the community centers also have pools that offer special open swim times for kids under 5 with their parents, which would be another fun rainy day activity!

I haven't checked this out, but I've heard good things and it definitely seems toddler specific.

This kids art studio looks really fun and I'm looking to checking it out down the road. (It says it's designed for kids 1-10, but I think Henry might still be a little young)

I drive by this place all the time and have been meaning to check out one of their open gyms, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

So while I'm hoping everyone can get outside this week and enjoy some time at the park and doing other outdoor activities, it is Oregon and I'm sure the rain won't stay away forever :) Hopefully this list comes in handy next time you're looking for some indoor toddler fun! (And I'm always looking for new ideas too so if there's anywhere I need to check out, let me know in the comments!)

Henry's Favorite Books at 15 Months

In Henry's 15 month update that I posted last week, I mentioned that he is such a little bookworm at the moment! He absolutely loves for us to read to him and is constantly bringing us books to read to him. (And often he'll sit and "read" a book to himself, which is the cutest thing ever) I thought I'd share a few of his current favorites in case anyone was looking for some new ideas for their kiddos. (These would also be great Easter basket ideas too!) Henry has lots books so these are definitely not all of the ones he likes, but I just thought I'd share the ones that are really on repeat right now...

Henry's Current Favorite Books

Goodnight Planes - I wasn't expecting him to be so into this book, but he absolutely loves it right now! (He also has Goodnight Oregon and Goodnight Michigan and we read those a lot too!)
How Big Is a Pig? - This one is really cute and the illustrations are charming.
New York: A Book of Colors - This was a gift from his aunt and uncle in NYC and he's really been enjoying it lately. It's just one color per page so it's a very quick read, but I love that it reminds me of special landmarks in one of my favorite cities! (He also has this Paris one as well and loves it too!)
Dear Zoo - Henry LOVES lift the flap books and this one is great for working on animal noises too. 
Where's Spot? - This is another lift the flap book and when you lift the flaps looking for Spot all the animals say "No!" and since that's pretty much Henry's favorite word, he really loves this one.
Ollie's Valentine - I picked this one up on a whim at HomeGoods and he wants us to read it to him all the time! (And there is a mirror on the last page of this one and he gets a kick out of that)
Pop-Up Peekaboo! Meow! - Just like his lift the flap books, Henry loves this book because he gets to open different pages of it and surprisingly he hasn't ripped out the pop-up animals yet! 
Goodnight Moon - This is a classic and there is just something so soothing about it! We read it every single night as the last book before he goes to bed and I have the entire thing committed to memory.
Harold and the Purple Crayon - This was a book I had as a kid and I thought it might not hold Henry's interest yet, but surprisingly he likes it! (We have it in board book form, just FYI)
Winter - We have a few of these 'Bright Baby Touch and Feel Books' and they're really simple, but he seems to like them a lot! (Plus, this one is just one word per picture so it's super short!)
T is for Truck - This is another touch and feel one and he loves looking at all the different trucks!
Little Blue Truck - Speaking of trucks, I know this is a super popular one but for good reason! It seems to really hold Henry's attention and it's got cute rhyming.

Those are a few of our favorites but I'm always up for suggestions! Whenever we go to the library, I feel like I always end up picking out random books so I'd love some ideas for books your kids love!

Currently: March

Is it just me or is March flying by? I can't believe April will be here before we know it, and so I wanted to pop in and share a little bit about what I've been up to lately! This post is somewhat short and sweet since I've got out of town company this week, but I thought it would be a fun way to say hi :)


Some of my recent favorites from Instagram - follow along with me (@inthepinkandgreen) if you aren't already!
 This month, I'm...
 
Making: Henry's Easter basket! (Well I'm not actually making the basket itself, that would be some intense Pinterest level dedication and ain't nobody got time for that) Even though Henry obviously will not care whether or not he has one this year, I am still having a lot of fun putting one together for him! I may try to put up a post about what I'm including if I have time later this week, just because I've seen a lot of bloggers putting up those posts lately and they've given me some great ideas! Also, I really want to try my hand at making one of those "naked" cakes this spring! I see them on Instagram all the time and I think they look so pretty...but I just don't know if I can bring myself to do it because frosting is definitely my favorite part of a cake, ha!
 
Cooking: In my crock pot, all of the time. Seriously, how do people live without one?! I use it at least twice a week pretty much every week. It's just so much easier to get dinner done earlier this in the day while Henry is napping! I recently made corned beef for St. Patty's day in it and it was delicious!
 
Reading: Way too many articles about the election. I know that reading all these various theories about how everything is going to go down over the next few months ultimately isn't going to change the outcome, but I can't stop clicking on them when I see them on Facebook.

Wanting: The rain to stop. It's been so rainy in Portland over the past couple of weeks! And yes, I know that it's what I signed up for living in the Pacific Northwest, but still. I'm ready for nice weather!

Looking: Forward to our trip to South Carolina at the end of this month - I can't wait! So that, and then seeing Henry in the ridiculously cute Easter outfit I got for him this Sunday :)

Wishing: The rain would stop. It bears repeating.

Enjoying: Having my sister in town! She came to visit from NYC and it's been great having her here!

Eating: Salt and Straw 'Pots of Gold and Rainbows' ice cream! Since my sister is in town, we've been indulging in some of Portland's best sweets and this seasonal flavor is a Lucky Charms lover's dream!

Loving: That I found Henry and I matching Converse this weekend! I'm so pumped for some mother-and-son twinning this spring and summer :)

Hoping: That my husband is able to get our basement finished quickly and without too many issues. Since he works from home, he's working on finishing part of the basement so he can move his office down there and out of our guest room. But since our house is almost 100 years old, trying to deal with things like wiring is not super straightforward and everything ends up taking way longer than anticipated. It's a slow process and I feel bad that he's having to devote so much free time to something that's been pretty frustrating. But I know it will be worth it when it's done!

Needing: To get a haircut - it's been way too long!
 
Feeling: Like I'm finally starting to adjust to the time change from Daylight Savings. Even though I love having the longer days, that first week always feels a little off to me. (Thankfully Henry didn't seem to have a problem with it at all though!)
 
Wearing: These lip balms and this blush palette - two of my spring beauty favorites for sure!

Watching: Quite a bit of TV recently! (See: ALL OF THE RAIN) We watched the finale of Downton Abbey earlier this month and I'm still sad it's over. We also blew through season 4 of House of Cards when it came out on Netflix in the course of a weekend! And then I was super into this season of the Bachelor and was really happy with the outcome! I think Jojo will be an awesome Bachelorette and Ben and Lauren seem really happy! I know, I know, it's a reality TV show and I always want every couple from it to work out and they usually don't. But I really think Ben and Lauren will? They just seem so in love! (I am literally this show's target demographic because I'm such a sucker...ha) Speaking of relationships, we've also been on a big Fixer Upper kick lately because it comes on both our HGTV app on our AmazonFireTV and it's on Netflix. Seriously though, Chip and Joanna are the definition of relationship goals. I'm looking for some new shows to watch though, and I'm open to suggestions!

Bookmarking: This and this (both via Cup of Jo) because toddler humor is where I'm at these days :)

What about you? How's your March going?

Henry at 15 Months

 Hey there, this month is flying by! I realized it's been awhile since my last post, things have been busy lately! Last week, Henry turned fifteen months old and so I thought it would a great time to do a little update on what he's been up to lately! Even though I don't necessarily miss doing his monthly updates, the nice thing was that they did keep me accountable for writing down all the new things he was doing. But after he reached the big milestone of turning one, I feel like I haven't been as on top of keeping track of all the funny things he's doing right now, and there are so many! I know I'm going to blink and he'll be two, and I'll regret not writing down more. So I thought that doing periodic check-ins like this might help :)

 

Henry is so much fun these days, I'm really loving this age! He's becoming so independent and really funny, and he just has the best little personality. Some days he seems like such a big boy, and then other times he still seems so small. He can be very friendly and outgoing, but then sometimes he'll be more reserved and like to sit back and observe. He's very curious and wants to know how things work, but he also loves to laugh. He's full of energy and pretty strong-willed; if he doesn't like something, he lets you know! He's still such a cuddler though and very loving, and overall just has a really sweet disposition. I'm so thankful I get to spend my days with him! 

Here's some more detail on what he's up to at 15 months...


Stats:
At his 15 month well check up last week, Henry weighed 24 lbs 12 oz (80th percentile) and he's 31.5 inches tall (70th percentile). Although I'm not sure his height was super accurate because he was in a mood and did NOT want to stay still to get measured, ha! (He was also in the 99th percentile for head circumference! #babygenius) He has been holding strong with four teeth for the past few months but he's finally getting a few more in! He has at least two molars and another tooth coming in on the top (and possibly some more on the bottom) but it's hard for me to tell because he HATES when I try and look in his mouth. But thankfully the teething hasn't affected him too much because I didn't even realize he had teeth coming in until the doctor said something!

Health:
Overall, Henry is a healthy boy and we're so thankful for that. But cold season has been tough on us and he's come down with quite a few over the past few months, including getting brochiolitis in January. I have him out around other kids pretty frequently and I know it's par for the course, but it's still frustrating. He's had a pretty gnarly cold the week before last, but thankfully is better now. The week before that, he had a stomach bug which luckily only lasted about 24 hours. But he did really throw up for the first time (well, a few times...blech) and so he was a pretty shaken up by that. I'm looking forward to warmer temps, more time outside, and hopefully less of this swapping germs back and forth with all of his baby friends!

Likes:
The boy is OBSESSED with books! He loves grabbing them off the shelves in his room, and we read morning, noon, and night. He'll even sit by himself and read and it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. He loves being chased, he thinks it's the funniest thing ever. He really likes climbing on furniture, specifically our end table (which he uses to get on the couch) as well as climbing into the rocker in his room and the chairs in our family room. There are a couple fun museums in Portland that we have passes to and he seems to like going to those. He loves the park and he really likes music! He also loves brushing his teeth, as well as watching Cam and I brush our teeth :) He's also still totally obsessed with anything with wheels! He loves all his toy cars/trucks at home, but anytime we're out, if there is a wheel of any sort anywhere around, he will find it! This includes the steering wheel on the jungle gym at the playground as well as random peoples' stroller wheels/bike wheels. He has loved wheels for awhile and I thought it might just be a phase, but it looks like it's here to stay. He just loves turning them and watching them go round and round!

 
 
Dislikes:
 Basically, he just really doesn't like anytime that he wants to do something and I don't let him do it. So that's caused some meltdowns, but he usually gets over it relatively quickly. Sometimes, he really hates having his diaper changed, and then other times he's fine with it. He's usually OK with going in his car seat, but sometimes, he'll randomly get really upset about it. He's also had some mild separation anxiety when he goes into the nursery at church, but that seems to be improving thankfully!

 Wears:  
He still fits in to some of his 12-18 month stuff, but is mainly wearing 18-24 month things these days. I'm still loving Old Navy for cute yet budget-friendly clothes, but the Hanna Andersson pajamas are our favs! He's still in size 4 diapers, but I think we may switch to 5's soon. I still love the Honest diapers, but have recently been using Huggies as well. Henry was starting to soak through his Honest diapers at night, and so I decided to try the Huggies Overnights. (I know Honest just started making overnight diapers too, but I decided to try the Huggies since they were a little more economical) He's been doing so great the past year using Honest so I was worried about how his skin would react to a new brand...but it turns out his bum is not quite as sensitive as I thought and he's been doing just fine with them! I still plan to use Honest during the day, but recently Henry has really not been wanting to get his diaper changed, and so I actually got some of these Little Movers Diaper Pants because they just slip on like underwear, which is much easier to deal with when he doesn't want to lay down on his changing pad.
 
Eats:
Ever since Henry turned a year, eating has been a little bit more of a struggle. He used to happily try whatever we'd set in front of him, but the past couple months he's been much more picky. Although I have to keep reminding myself not to label him as a "picky eater" already, because after all he is only 15 months old! A lot of what we're going through is just normal toddler behavior where he's trying to exert his independence and test boundaries, so I don't want to start calling him a picky eater and have it become a self-fulfilling prophecy situation. But these days, he does pretty much refuse to eat anything that resembles meat or vegetables, so I've had to be creative about how to work those in to his diet. I'm hoping to do a separate post with some of our favorite recipes, but basically we've been doing a lot of quesadillas, smoothies, and various healthy things baked in a mini muffin tin. It's frustrating because often I'll make him something one day that he'll completely devour and then the next day, he won't touch it. Pretty much the only things he consistently loves are fruit, sweet potato, pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt, cheese, and anything made of carbs aka Cheerios, crackers, bread, etc. I'll admit, I get a little frazzled when he won't seem to eat anything and keeps throwing all his food on the floor, but then he'll have days where he'll eat really well. According to our pediatrician, that's all normal for this age and so I try not to stress about it too much, especially since he's staying right on his growth curve. We did completely stop nursing last month, and he loves drinking whole cow's milk out of his straw cup! I'm thankful that weaning was an easy transition for us both :)

Sleep: 
As frustrating as eating can be some days, I really can't complain because Henry is still an awesome sleeper! He usually goes to bed around 8-8:30pm and wakes up between 8-8:30am. His bedtime is a little later than some other kids his age, but since we usually don't have anywhere to be before 9:30 in the morning, putting him down later and having him wake up later definitely works better for us and he seems fine with it! We don't do any super complex bedtime routine either; he gets a bath (usually only every other day though because otherwise I think his skin gets too dry. Plus, giving him a bath just adds one extra thing to do in the evening and that's way too annoying to do every day), we brush his teeth, go up to his room, change diaper/put on pjs/sleep sack, and read a couple short books. Then he goes in his crib, we turn on his humidifier and his sound machine, and we don't hear from him until the next morning. He is down to one nap and since we usually have activities in the morning, most days he goes down around 1pm. He'll pretty consistently take around a two hour nap, but occasionally he'll go closer to three hours, which is really nice. He is almost always in his crib with his sleep sack on for his nap, because car naps are no bueno and I haven't had much luck transferring him to his crib from the car. (He will still nap in his stroller though if we're out and about traveling!)



Favorite Things:
 I did a post last month about our favorite things from the past few months, and we're still loving everything I mentioned, as well as things from my past favorites posts. As for other toys, some of his current favorites are this car track, these magnets, this 4-wheeler, these types of balls, and this little iPad thing. And then he has lots of favorite books but I think I might do a separate post on those :)

Things I Want to Remember: 
-He's becoming really vocal, makes tons of different sounds, and loves to mimic us. As far as words, his favorite (by far) is NO. He says it constantly. It's his response to every question, even when he wants something...ha! He also says Mama (and mom too, which is funny) all the time, along with Dada. He says Lola sometimes, and tries to say other things like banana and ball.
-We're working on learning body parts and animal sounds, and while he's not quite there yet, I think it won't be too long before he has those figured out.
-He loves to grab a book, bring it over to us, and get in our lap to read, which I hope he always wants to do! He's obsessed with lift the flap books and one of his favorites is "Where's Spot?" You lift the different flaps to see if Spot is behind different things and instead, there's a different animal there with a word bubble that says 'no.' When we read it and say things like "Is Spot behind the door?" and Henry loves to lift the flap and say "Noooooo!" It's pretty cute :)
-Although he's always been really cuddly, he was never one to really give kisses/hugs until recently. He'll give his stuffed animals kisses and he gives me kisses when I ask for them, which is the best :)
-He loves to point at things and people and he's really dramatic about it sometimes. He puts his whole body into it and looks like he's trying to cast a spell or something...ha.
-He really likes to share with adults and hand objects to them. When we were at the Children's Museum this weekend, he kept picking up random things and would go up to all different parents and hand them things. (And luckily people are always pretty nice about it and act like they're excited...ha)
-He loves taking a napkin and putting it over his face so we'll ask "Where's Henry?" And sometimes he makes us wait a long time before he'll pull down the napkin with a big grin on his face.
-He loves shaking his head from side to side and laughing, especially if we start to do it too.
-He likes when I sing songs with motions like Wheels on the Bus or Pat-a-cake. 
-If we tell him not to do something and he doesn't listen and we say it more sternly, he'll usually start crying. Sometimes I think he does genuinely feel bad and gets sad if he thinks we're unhappy with him, and then other times, I'm pretty sure he's just fake crying because he's fine literally two seconds later.
-If he doesn't want to do something, he totally goes limp noodle on me and will collapse to the floor if I try to stand him back up. Super fun when we're out in public.
-Sometimes he and Lola will really play together and it's pretty cute. He's figuring out how to throw her toy for her (although most of the time he just takes it from her when she brings it back to him and then I throw it) and I think they'll have even more fun this summer as he gets bigger.
-He eats a banana pretty much every morning without fail and he still gets super excited about it.
-If he spots my phone, the baby monitor, or the remote, he tries to grab them and run off with them and he's totally fascinated by these three things.
-If he's doing something that he knows he's not supposed to be doing (like running in the bathroom to play by the toilet - so gross) and I go after him and say "What are you doing?" he erupts into a fit of laughter and thinks it's hilarious.
-Even though we usually save TV for after he goes to bed because we try not to let him have too much screen time, sometimes we'll have the TV on during the weekends and he'll lay on the couch with Cam and I and just veg out and watch a show with us and I kind of love that.
-He's always so happy (and usually jumping up and down in his sleep sack) after he wakes up in the morning or from his nap when Cam or I go to get him out of his crib. Lately he's been doing this thing where as soon as I come in his room, he'll flop back down and pretend he's asleep. And then when I say "Oh I guess Henry is still sleeping!" then he'll pop back up with a big grin.



I could go on and on listing things but basically he's just the best. While this age definitely has it's challenges, namely that he has a lot of big emotions and opinions but a very limited vocabulary with which to express himself, overall, it's just so cool to watch him turn into his own little person! I'm looking forward to the next few months (and hopefully enjoying warmer, less rainy weather!) with him!

February in Review

Happy March :) I'm definitely looking forward to the month ahead, as it will hopefully mean the start of spring and nicer weather! But February was a pretty great month so (like I did last month) I wanted to go ahead and do a quick photo dump from my phone of some of the photos that didn't make it to Instagram, but that I still wanted to share. Spoiler alert: They're mainly of Henry. Ha. 
 ^^The snacks table at my moms group is always decorated so nicely to coordinate with the seasons! And when it feels like most days I'm coming from a toy strewn house, I really do appreciate all the effort that goes in to make it cute and pretty for us moms :) (This was for Valentine's Day, obviously)
 ^^We got a new end table and Henry is obsessed with climbing on it! We are constantly telling him not to, but he looks so cute and proud of himself it's really hard to get mad.
 ^^And then if the TV is on, sometimes he'll just climb up there and chill. Ha.
 ^^My friend Meredith and I went on an epic TJs shopping trip and then cooked up this deliciousness to eat while watching the Bachelor earlier this month when Cam was out of town for work trip.
 ^^Henry entertaining his friends at a play date at our house earlier this month :)
 ^^I know I already shared a bunch of photos from our weekend at the Coast earlier this month, but we had a really great time so I had to share a few more :)
 ^^So windy! Haha :)
 ^^Our Airbnb had this end table that was had this wheel as a base with glass on top. We removed the glass (for obvious reasons) and Henry was obsessed with spinning this thing our entire stay.
 ^^When your mom makes you take too many selfies...ha.
 ^^Checking out the fishies at the Oregon Coast Aquarium!
 ^^We tried to get him to stick his face through this cutout, but this was the closest we got. And I actually kind of love it :)
 ^^This was another favorite from that weekend :)
 ^^We had some really nice days in February so we had lots of time at the park!
 ^^Working on his Valentines :)
 ^^Cozy little lamb after the bath :)
 ^^This one from Valentine's Day is a little blurry, but I love it :)
 ^^Helping Dada!
 ^^We all had fun having my mom in town last week!
^^I think this little guy may be an engineer like this dad, he's super interested in figuring out how things work! Our science museum has an awesome area for little kids and so I love taking him :)

Well that pretty much covers it for February! I know I will probably say this at every stage, but Henry is just so much fun right now! I'm looking forward to making lots of new memories this month :)
