#themacboys2013 :: february

I made it through February of my 365 project. Although some days it is hard to get a picture every day, I love that I have all these snap shots to document our year. They make me happy.

February was filled with some big milestones for the Mac boys. Levi finally was brave and crawled out of his crib. First time ever. He thought he was pretty rad. We celebrated Cora’s heaven anniversary. We did some Valentine crafts and hosted our annual happy heart cousin party. We celebrated Chinese New Year with friends. Griffin finally decided it was time to walk. Yay! We are all so very happy about that. He is almost keeping up with his brother now. We had some gorgeous weather at the beginning of the month and then a huge snowstorm at the end. One boy loved the snow, one boy hated it. We are so thankful for the moisture the snow brought, but so ready for Spring now! We were stuck in the house for days because of snow, so I finally decided it was time to take down Levi’s crib. Levi is doing so great in his big boy bed. In between these milestones we have been reading, taking baths (with and without water), baking cookies, giving concerts, snuggling and playing. Sweet moments that I am so thankful for. I love being mama to the Mac boys. 🙂

I was inspired by the 366 project that Drew did of her darling little girl last year. She has a great post with tips on 365 projects if you are wanting to do one of your own. You can start anytime! I can’t wait to see all the pictures of my boys at the end of the year. I am planning on printing them in a book…they will love it!
