Marc took Poppy on her annual sled ride to school.  She was so excited...

Sam and I stayed home and read his favorite books.  He is absolutely obsessed with these two pop-up books.  One is an Elmo book and the other one is Trucks.  Sam doesn't talk yet, but he loves trying to make the "ucccckkkkk" sound to let us know he wants to read the trucccckkkk  book.

He follows me around all day long with these books and begs me to read them (which I usually happily do, but I do tend to get sick of them when we've already read them 20x and it is only 10:00 in the morning) and cries and whines when I try to do anything (oh, like start a load of laundry, wash dishes, GET DRESSED, make lunch).  I remember going through this phase with Poppy.  She had these three board books that all involved singing songs while reading them.  She did the same thing, begged and whined all day to read them.  And when she wasn't looking, I would hide them behind the pillows on the couch.  I felt bad doing it but for my sanity's sake, it was necessary.  And now I find myself doing the same with Sam and these pop-up books.

I got all caught up on your blog today - I'm such a blog loser these days... just cannot keep up with reading or writing.
Anyhoo... so great to catch up with you. Can't believe how big Sam is! I love (because it's not me dealing with it) that he's obsessed with a few books.

Look at that happy girl in her sled!

I love the shots of Sam with his book... although, I don't blame you for hiding them. There is just so many times you can read the same sentence, right!?

Jealous that you have enough snow for a sled ride! Not nearly here :(
