Feeling Tappy

Kennedy has been in a ballet and tap class for the past few months and she is loving it. I can't watch while she is in class, they ask the mommies not to as it can be really distracting. I am dying for her recital in May, but every now and then she shows me some steps at home. She will say things like, "put on the popcorn song..." and I begin googling things like "pre-school tap popcorn song" until we (most of the time) find the song she is looking for. Thank you, Internet.
This song happens to be one of her favorites. I have to believe there is a little more choreography than she is choosing to show me here...

That Time It Snowed

Kennedy just could't catch a break this winter. She so desperately wanted snow for Christmas, which didn't happen here in Dallas. Then we had a massive ice storm. Then she got super obsessed with Frozen and wanted snow with every fiber of her being. I don't wish of snow for days, but a little here and there would be nice! A few weeks ago we got a dusting and she just about lost her mind.

She wanted to build snowmen (Olaf, specifically), eat snow, have a snow ball fight and make snow angels. It snowed just enough one afternoon to do a handful of those things. The novelty quickly wore off because we don't have the right kind of clothes for snow (like waterproof anything) and after she played for a little bit, she was ready to come in for hot chocolate.

We had to make our angels in the driveway because there wasn't enough snow in the grass. 
(Insert eye roll from my east coast friends who have been buried in snow for weeks)

They Can't All Be Winners

Not every photo shoot we have is a raging success. I tried to get the girls in their leopard dresses after the Sip and See. But neither wanted to cooperate.::sigh::

"Mom, she's pushing me!" Kennedy says through her sobs.

three months

Chloe celebrated her three month birthday on a visit to Albuquerque. We had a wonderful trip and she got to meet so many new people. More on that trip is to come.

At three months, she is now considered an infant and no longer a newborn. That newborn stage passed so quickly the second time around. ::sniffle:: It is fun, though, to watch her grow and become more aware of her surroundings. She smiles a lot now and is laughing more and more. She's getting grabby and often has a fistful of my hair in her little hands. Kennedy thinks its funny, but she isn't going to find it too funny when Chloe gets some good tugs on her hair.

She loves to hang out on her changing table and watch the mobile. She loves to be outside and still enjoys being carried around in the sling. She loves her big sister and never makes Kennedy work to hard for a big, happy smile.

Chloe is still eating and sleeping like a champ. We are starting to find our way into a more predictable daytime routine. During the day she eats about every 2.5-3 hours, plays for about an hour and then naps for anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours.

She is a happy and sweet little baby and we just love her to pieces.

Little Boo at three months.
