Updates.. finally!

Well, finally, some updates! I've started them several times but never quite got around to finishing one! Ansel's gotten very busy this past month! He's fast, and crawling up and down large steps even.
He only weighed 17 lbs. 8oz. during the last shot he got a couple of weeks ago. . . he's eating good though (even off of a spoon.. finally!! Finger foods are still his favorite though) He still dislikes sippy cups, but he does really well with his straw cup. Maybe he'll have a little growth spurt before too long and hit 20 lbs so we can turn his car seat around! I imagine he'll like that better.

It's a fun, but busy age. The movies are rarely on the shelf any more, and he will find pretty much anything there is to get into and scatter (or "eat") Yep, the busy, curious stage keeps mommy very busy as well!
He also has such a variety of sounds and usually has a lot to say!
His top two middle teeth are starting to get pretty big... I can see why he complained so much about them!

We had a beautiful week of weather.. FINALLY. It's been below freezing for so long here that the 50's to almost 70's were very exciting! We got to go on walks everyday which is great because Ansel loves being outside, (not to mention he gets in a good morning nap that way!)

Ansel became interested in my ipod. We have some of his baby/kids music on there, and he got excited to hear it coming from the ear pieces.

He also has fun playing in the ball pit in the kid's playroom at Grandpa and Grandma Sneddon's!

He even got one piece of Valentine's Day candy, which he devoured (although it didn't stay down long)

Itsy Bitsy Spider Video

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Ansel started the cutest thing the other day. He gets mad having to lay down on the changing table.. now that he's such a mover... so we began singing while he's there to try to distract him. We usually do the itsy bitsy spider (the first time with actions, then I keep singing it until we're done!)
Monday when I laid him down on the table, he put his hands together, ready for the song! He'll usually stop during the middle two lines, then put his hands back together for the final line, when the spider returns! (His spider consists of holding his left hand still while his right hand pats it, and occasionally even turns his wrist a little)
We kind of got it on video, although he stopped as soon as he realized he was being taped! Sorry... I couldn't figure out how to rotate the video... I'll change it if I get it figured out.

Tool time

Daddy got some new tools... Ansel thought he should check them out.

hmm.. wonder how you use this one?
ha.. figured it out!

My chair

I got a cute new chair from Grandpa Miller. (I flashed him a pretty cute smile when I was trying it out)

It's great to cuddle in when I watch my shows....

. . . or to hide behind. . .

. . . and to tip over!
