Photos from the Week

Last Sunday we met my mom and her friend for lunch and once we finished with lunch we decided to stop by Kristian's grandmothers house for a visit since she hasn't seen Hunter in a while.

He had a bit of "stranger danger" at first and stuck close to daddy. 

But it wasn't long before he had warmed up to his great grandmother and was playing Peek A Boo and walking around her house like he owned the place. 

She absolutely loved seeing Hunter and it was so sweet seeing them together. We need to make a point of taking him over there more often. It's been tough this winter since one of us is always sick and Lord knows we don't want to bring any germs to a 92 year old. 

On Monday Hunters daycare was closed for MLK day and I was able to telework. Despite the very cold weather we did get a quick stroller walk in to get some fresh air and ease a bit of stir craziness on both of our parts. 

I was cleaning out part of our office/storage/disaster room and found some of my baby pictures and it seems that Hunter may be my child after all. Above are photos of each of us at around 11 months old. 

Yesterday morning we woke up and actually had a little bit of snow on the ground. For once the weatherpeople predicted (somewhat) right. Even though we've had some flurries here and there this is the first "real" snow that Hunter has seen. So I let him check it out for a few minutes before taking him to daycare. 

He seemed fascinated at first. 

Even a bit excited. 

But then after falling down and getting his pants a bit wet he wasn't quite so into it anymore. In this pictures he's even saying "mama mama" in a concerned voice. Poor thing. 

We're supposed to get more snow this afternoon so hopefully we'll get a chance to actually play in it a bit. Oh and next Wednesday it should be 60 degrees. Go figure.

Great pictures! I definitely hope that my children will be able to know some of their great-grandparents someday.

I agree with Hunter, I like the snow until I fall in it too! Haha

Aw, it is nice and nothing gives older people more joy than babies. We used to bring my nephew to the nursing home and everyone would brighten up. Laura's great-great-grandmother met her before she passed away at 101. Her great-grandmother passed away the Spring before she was born, but she still has one great-grandma and both great-grandfathers.

My kid never had any stranger danger. She went to everyone and she's more cautious now, but she'll talk to anyone with a healthy distance. She's not shy (unless it's for attention). It would have been nice to have one that clinged a little bit though.

Natalie hates anyone and everyone but me, Matt and Matt's parents. Even my siblings and parents she is unsure of.

That's great Hunter got to spend time with his Great Grandma, what a treat!

Jamie wasn't so sure of the snow either. He took two steps and then had a breakdown because his shoes were dirty with snow. Lol. Toddlers are weird!

Hahah awww so cute! That's sweet you were able to take Hunter to see Great-Grandma, it must thrill her so much! Have a great weekend!

Love all of these photos!!! Especially of the one calling for Mama in the snow! :) I swear he is just getting cuter and cuter with each passing week.

Nat said...

He is so precious!! He looks just like you in that picture! I don't blame him about the snow- I'm not a huge fan either once I get wet.
