Slippery Slope ~ Best Shot Monday

As much fun as we had cavorting with friends and family over this past week, there’s something to be said for coming home.  We’ve managed to put away most of our clothes and have de-decorated all but the snow stuff which we figured can keep the house festive through the long months of winter, though by the looks of things around here, we’re in a much different place weather-wise than we were a week ago!  Yup, when we pulled in last night we could see mulch in our gardens!  Gotta love Michigan!

I knew it would happen – the blogging lull that was bound to occur once I returned to work.  Believe me, it’s not for lack of great content!  There’s been so much happening around here!  Seneca continues to belly laugh and just loves it when people give her their undivided attention.  She’s consistently rolling from belly to back and isn’t screaming through tummy time anymore.  Her tracking is right on and she’s gaining more control over her hands now too!  Calder, well, he’s just a big bundle of change these days.  I swear within the past week he’s learned 40-50 new words, many of them names.  His comprehension of two- and sometimes three-step requests is amazing, as is his imagination.  What’s his favorite gift, you ask?  That would be the plates, cups, and measuring set from Tia Gretchen!  He’s all about serving pancakes and coffee!  Then again, he’s done his fair share of bootie shakin’ with his new microphone too. 

I have way too many pictures to share this week, so not all of them will be “featured” in a specific post.  This little series is one of my favorites.  Our family in da north know how to make a sleddin’ hill!  Three launches and a tow rope make it great afternoon activity!  Here’s our run down the big launch!  The best part is that the day was so mild that I didn’t worry about having him out in the weather!
