Eating her veggies!

She's eating her lunch! Sometimes she doesn't eat well when I cook
for her, but that could be because I often wait too long to start
making a meal for her and she gets hungry and so I give her a snack
while I cook and then she's not hungry for the meal. It is all about
the timing. Routines. She has a routine at school where outside
playtime is just before lunch, and then nap time is after lunch. So
today, I prepped the food for cooking before going to the park. Then
we played for over and hour, and when we got home all I had to do was
turn the stove on while we washed up for eating. When the food was
ready she was hungry for it. Now she's napping and there was no fuss
going down for a nap. Good day! Amen.

Pushing the swings

Too wet to sit in the swing since it rained last night, so she made a
fun game of pushing the swings and counting "1,2,3,4,5!".

Juni's valentine

Juni got a Valentine's Day card from a boy friend at preschool! The
same boy who held her hand and locked eyes with her on her very first
visit to the school. So sweet.

Super bowl Saturday

We have an annual tradition to go bowling with friends every Super Bowl weekend. This year it was just the three of us and we went bowling at a place in our town. We had plans to meet friends in a town that is about an hour south of us, but we took a late nap today and then slept for 3 hours so by the time we woke up we had missed out on the group bowling event. I say WE napped because all three of us took a long afternoon nap. It was great. I was tired after a busy week at work, and it was great to be able to sleep when I wanted to today. Here are some pictures from our family game at our local bowling alley. Bob won! Oh, and even though Juniper is too young to bowl, we played with bumpers up on the lane. They were up when we got there and we didn't ask about taking them down. Juniper liked looking at all the bowling balls and surprised me when she was able to lift an 8 lbs ball. Maybe she will bowl next year?


Juniper had a fall at home the other night and here is a picture of her bruised eye. She was sitting on a sofa chair and attempted to move to sitting on the arm of the chair but over shot it when she jumped up. She fell to the floor. We are not sure what she hit her eye on. We were skyping with Grandmom at the time so she saw the whole thing. Bob has been singing to Juniper, "shine on you crazy shiner".

Wearing shades

Grammy Award!

Not even 2 and she's got a Grammy!

Daddy was excited to share the news of his client's GRAMMY award with
his daughter on Monday, but she reminded ol' pops that Grammy had
already been awarded a special treat at her birthday party last week.
