I’ve almost got the blog caught up to the present day—so close! All the photos I took in January were right here at home, or at least on our street. Afton had lots of fun playing with some of her favorite Christmas gifts, including her easel

…some new puzzles

…and her new subscription to Little Passports! This one has been a huge hit!

We spent a lot of time outside, too.

Alex did lots of outdoor home improvement… with a little help from Afton. ;)

I obviously didn’t do a good job of getting in front of my own camera during the last part of my pregnancy, which makes me even more thankful for our gorgeous maternity photos. But it also motivates me to hand off the camera more often. Hold me to it!
