Snow Day

We thought we'd get through this winter with no snow, but here we go...

I bundled Rosemary up so she should get out and enjoy her first snow.  She bore it well, but really just had no idea what all the fuss was about.  

The county delayed school and Ben's office started late -- BUT, Tim's school was not in session and Ben had requested the day off.  So not an official "snow day," but the kids had fun.  They started playing at 7:30 this morning and then came in for hot chocolate.  Good thing they started early because it was all gone a few hours later.

Half a year

My little Rosemary is 6 months old. She seriously has been an awesome addition to the family. Super sweet and smiley and can handle three older siblings with style. Everyone, including her three year old brother, loves her. The smiling and cooing never, ever gets old. I used to call Joe my little runt.  But she has definitely taken over the title.  At her well-child this visit, she weighed just 13 pounds 9 ounces and 25 inches long.  That safely puts her in the 5th and 25th percentiles

Don't you love the warm winter?  We walked to the park one afternoon:

My sister Mary took some great pictures of the kids right after new year's:

And here is a picture of me as a babe.  This one popped up on the screen saver a few weeks back and I was stunned by how much it looks like Rosie (or Ro, Ro-Ro, Roey, etc)
