"God sees you not only as mortal beings on a small planet who lives for a brief season -- He sees you as His child. He sees you as the being you are capable and designed to become. He wants you to know that you matter to Him." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Gym & Swim
Oh what do you do in the wintertime, when Ohio has no Spring?
Do you find a warm pool, and floaty noodle...
Is that what you do? So do I!
The local YMCA has a fun gym/swim group for parents and toddlers, and we enrolled with our friends Kristen and Claire. That Lo enjoyed himself more than the pictures show--a lot of times he wasn't very smiley at class because he was extremely focused or observant, but I could tell he was enthralled by all his peers and the activities.
Note he is still hanging onto that huge ball even while teeter-tottering.
And I wondered why he gets sick so often. Balls aren't just for bouncing--they make great teether toys. BTW, that Lo has a couple more new teeth on top that sprouted up over the past couple weeks. =D
I liked learning all the cute little rhymes and songs from our instructors. Hopefully I can keep doing them at home even when our course comes to an end.
After a few classes, that Lo got better at accepting the routine and structure of the activity.
He actually really does love the parachute type of activities (we do it in nursery at church as well)...I'm not sure why the somber face in this photo, unless maybe it was because we were trying to fold up the parachute to put it away and he felt sad about it.
Our two babies just held hands on their own as we walked through the parking lot.
Tee hee. Such cuteness I cannot even stand it! And yes, that is our children bundled so heavily just last week. But I think springtime might actually be here as of current posting time.
