(This picture cracks me up 'cause it shows his little about-to-cry pouty lip. Ha!)
Savannah is her same exuberant self. The apple of every eye and joy of life. She is daily growing and changing into more of a little girl and less of a toddler. Every day she wakes up, and I discover she is capable of saying or doing something new. I wonder if she even realizes these things? I love her to pieces, but I pray this cold weather lets up soon because she needs to go play at the park! Cabin fever is wearing on this crew.
January dragged by but as usual with preparations for Chick-fil-A Seminar, February flew. We did manage to enjoy the brief two days of snow that fell, and our trip to Washington, DC for seminar went off without a hitch, a much needed break for me.
(Savannah would have absolutely nothing to do with the snow. As a matter of fact, every time we tried to put her in it or play with her she would just cry incessantly, so I have no fun or cute pics of her in the snow like the rest of my friends=( The best I could do was get her to take a walk down the street, which she decided would be fun to eat...ick.)
(This is the only picture I have of her actually in the snow...she was furious with me for putting her there, and as you can see made a bee-line for the driveway.)
(Joey desperately wanted someone to have a snowball fight with him, but the best he got was the opportunity to toss snowballs at Savannah's feet. I attempted, but after he fast-pitched an iceball into my lower back, I fumed back inside and told him he could snowball fight himself.)
(Notice the frozen reflecting pool behind us...you know, the one located between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial....well...)
(...We decided we needed to join the 100 other people talking a walk across the frozen water...it was a little slushy and cracking in places, but still very solid...my first time a real frozen body of water....)
(....Near the end of our walk, I was getting a little leery of the slushy ice, so I made my way to the edge to hop off. I stopped short when I realized the entire edge around the reflecting pool was completely melted. Everyone was literally walking on an enormous sheet of floating--now melting--ice. I stopped a little too long before hopping off because I was enamored by the fact you could actually feel yourself bobbing up and down this close to the edge of the ice. Yes, too close indeed...I fell right through! Thank goodness the reflecting pool is only about two feet deep!)
