Life Lately: February 2014

Yet another month has come and gone.  I can't believe how quickly February went!  The major events of the month were:
  • Finally finding our house!  More on that later.
  • Every single one of us coming down with the same cold the week after we got the house (we were so grateful that we had a house and didn't need to go out looking while we were sick).
  • Valentine's Day
  • A playdate with some of Isaac's friends once we got better
  • Going to the zoo.
We got Isaac this Noah's Ark set for his 1st birthday and he just recently started playing with it a TON!  He loves the animals and Noah is "bampa".

One day after house hunting Andy worked from home for the afternoon.  Isaac was really excited to get my laptop and "work" right next to Dad.
The weather has been a little crazy here this month!  We've gone from 70+ degrees to the 30s overnight more than once!

One cold, rainy day Isaac decided to entertain himself by cleaning our tub.  I'm not complaining!
When it finally warmed up a little we went to play outside.  Isaac picked up almost every stick we saw.  At one point he had 7 or 8 in his hand.
We loved watching the Olympics!  Getting an antenna so we could actually watch was a great investment!  Isaac loved watching the "pincesses" ice skating.  He would get so excited whenever we got to watch them!
Back in October Isaac got a green straw cowboy hat at a party put on by Andy's work.  It finally fell apart to the point where it was shedding EVERYWHERE!  We finally got him a new, black hat.  He's happy to have a new hat and we're happy to not have green straw all over the apartment!
One morning I told Isaac it was library day and he immediately grabbed one of our cloth bags and started putting books into it (not necessarily just library books).  He's a big fan of library day.
On Valentine's Day, one of the girls in our ward put on a party for all the nursery kids.  It was absolutely gorgeous weather so we walked down to the party.  I don't have any pictures of Isaac playing, but he had enough fun that he was heartbroken to leave!  Seriously, tears the whole way home!
Just a fraction of the people who were at the party.  We didn't think to take a picture until almost everyone had left!

That afternoon Isaac woke up from his nap with the cold that we then passed around the whole house.  Not even Andy escaped it!  We spent the next week curled up in blankets watching movies.  One day Andy even stayed home from work to help me with the boys because they were both sick and I was sick enough that I couldn't do it all by myself.
We had found our house by the point, so Andy spent a lot of the week watching videos for how to do the projects we have upcoming: laying tile, laying wood laminate flooring, painting, fixing a ceiling fan, etc.  Isaac was sick enough that he just wanted to curl up next to Dad and watch the videos with him.
Luckily the weather was gorgeous the whole week, so we were able to get some fresh air and go on lots of walks.  Adam LOVED the time outside!
Poor sick Isaac...
I knew Isaac was feeling better the day our apartment looked like this before noon.
Once we were feeling better we were so excited to have new friends come play!

Silence during a play date is usually a bad thing... especially when there's 3 toddler boys together!  I looked over and saw Isaac sharing his favorite books with Gray.  He kept going "yoohoo" and waving for Nash to come join them.
The first meeting of the Friday Night Movie Club.  Dumbo and popcorn.  It doesn't get much better.
That Sunday we were all just sick enough that I didn't want to go and risk getting everyone sick, so we headed out to White Rock Lake to enjoy some time in nature.
This view was just what my soul needed.  The sound of waves and seagulls took me right back to my childhood in Seattle.
Isaac has gotten way into dressing up lately!  His super hero capes, hooded towels, and every hat in the house have gotten some major use lately!  I think I'm going to need to get more boy dress-ups!

Trying on mom's boots.  He actually came over and made me take them off so he could put them on.

I told you the weather's been crazy this month!
Isaac got out all the plastic bags one afternoon and when I told him he'd need to put them back he looked at me, shook his finger, and said "No, no, no. Try again." Talk about sass!  I tried not to laugh too hard, but it seriously cracked me up!
The last day of February was absolutely gorgeous, so we went to the zoo with some friends to take advantage of $5 admission before it ended!  We're definitely going to need to get a pass this year, because Isaac loved it!  It was actually pretty fun because while we were watching the lions and tiger they started roaring.  All the boys thought that was pretty darn cool.
This is what pure joy looks like!  I love my smiley little boy! 
Caleb fell dead asleep when Aarika put him in the Ergo.

4 of the 9 boys there (these 4, their younger brothers, and one dad).  The majority of our ward's "double boys" club (5 or 6 of us all had our second boy this year).

Isaac with Blake and Bryant.
Adam must have had a goal to roll over in February, because he decided to roll over at about 8:30 p.m. on the 28th right as we were getting him ready for bed.
All in all, February was a pretty fun month!
