Noah and I had a little date down to the audiology department at UC Davis. We noticed an improvement in his hearing almost immediately after the surgery last month, but I've been antsy for some documented proof that things really are better.

I loved teaching Joy School on Valentine's Day. Yes, it made the day a little crazier and busy, but frosting cookies with Luke and his buddies was a really fun way to spend the morning.
Noah was too cute when he walked out of class. He was really proud of the Valentine bag that he'd created.
Mom? What's that word, the one that means everybody likes you? Oh, I know! Popular. Mom, I must be super popular. Look at all of the Valentines I got!"

I REALLY enjoyed getting to snuggle Jack for two hours while Leah and Lucy slept and Nate and Andy took the bigger kids out for a while. How did I not even get a picture of that sweet baby?! It was heaven snuggling a little one again!
This was our first hotel stay as a family of five and it was great.
After thinking about it we realized that it has been ten years since we've visited. That's when the Sacramento Temple opened, and we just haven't made the trip since. The visitor's center there had lots of interactive activities that we all enjoyed. Noah was impressed by this giant Book of Mormon.

Noah went to his first 'friend from school' birthday party. He and Peyton are good buddies, and she really won him over with an awesome face painter at her party.
There's Noah and Peyton.
The 100th day of school was filled with celebration and activities. I was super busy running the centers, but quickly snapped a picture of Noah with Bentley and Everett.
We celebrated Nana's birthday at our house and, of course, she was in heaven being surrounded by her favorite little people.
Dad's at church meetings, Leah wakes up earlier than expected, and Mom still has to finish getting ready for church. On this Sunday morning it meant Cheerios to snack on in our closet until I was done. Leah loved the idea!
When the sun actually shined for a few days this month we were outside on bikes, at the park, or just exploring.
This darling pink marshmallow girl just wants to get out and explore too so she was all smiles when the rain finally stopped.
I always know when Luke is going through a growth spurt because he's extra hungry and every afternoon I find him napping somewhere.
Leah loves sitting on the mantle. Like, she screams to get up there and screams when we take her down. Silly girl.
