We finally got our first real snow today and we all felt well enough to go out and play. I was very happy about this, because I bought a little round sled in November and had almost given up on using it this winter. We were able to today.
We found a couple little hills and went down them. Cullen would only go down once. Gregory went down several times, but was a little nervous about it. Between the three of us I had the most fun. I sled down a bunch of times. It was pretty safe because it wasn’t very steep and the sled didn’t go far, but it was fun! Also it was easy, because the sled didn’t go far it took only a couple seconds to go back up. I hadn’t had that much fun in a long time. I was very careful. I was not about to risk hurting my pregnant belly.
The simple joy of the little hill made me just so happy. I have had so much anxiety and feelings of depression lately that life has just felt like a bit much. Today I was just really happy being outside having fun. That snow really lifted my spirits.
Gregory wanted to make a snowman, but the snow was too dry for that. So, after playing for a while Gregory got cold. We decided we better get him back in. On the walk home he started crying. I guess the cold was a bit much for him. He stopped when we got inside and changed his clothes.
Then Gregory and I had some hot chocolate.
Oh it was such a fun morning.
This past weekend we went and got two parakeets, one yellow, one white. The white one I named sugar and the yellow one I named butter. They are very sweet birds.
Parakeets are very easy to care for. Their noises make me happy. They also aren’t too loud which is good.
Daddy had gone to work and I was in Gregory’s room with him.
Gregory decided to play pretend.
Gregory – “I be Daddy”. He looked at me “you be Mommy”. Then Gregory lifted up my shirt, touched my belly and said “you be Gregory.”
I thought that was too cute.
