January

In my continued attempt to catch up, here is what I remember about January…

In mid-January, we remembered the 1-year anniversary of Dad’s passing.  We all miss him SO much every day.  Through my sadness, though, I have such a feeling of peace knowing that he is in a better place. 

We got busy cleaning our house out and having it staged to put on the market.  I was perplexed by the idea of living in a staged house with 2 toddler boys and a working studio, but it has been alright.  We’ve been given enough advanced notice with the showings to pull things together.  We’ve had to go to Mamaw’s house for naps pretty often to get out of the way of showings.  I think our stager did a nice job making our house look warm and inviting.IMG_0368IMG_0364IMG_0363IMG_0372IMG_0373

Everyday life has gone on with the boys.  They are so much fun and so sweet, and silly.  Logan Bear’s vocabulary has developed a lot; and kind of in a sudden burst.  He’s so precious and cute.  Nathan holds conversations like an elementary-aged kid.  Logan is stubborn, independent, and focused.  He’s perfectly fine playing on his own.  He has a strong hold and gets particularly upset when Nathan tries to take something away from him.  Logan rarely gets in trouble, but he is still learning to follow directions.  Nathan is needy, dependent on his Mommy, manipulative, loud, very smart and super cute.  He tends to catch trouble more than his bro.  Both of the guys blow me away with the things they say and do, and their little ways.  IMG_0334IMG_0357

Apparently I didn’t take many pictures in January.
