We finally got our family photos back this month and now have to decide which ones to have printed and send them out to family. They turned out so good and I am excited to be able to share them. They will be coming to you all soon.
I didn't take as many photos as I should have this month. Probably because we were not off somewhere for the weekend. It is tough for me to remember to take photos of every day occurrences. But these are the ones I truly want to remember, so I need to get better at keeping the camera out and ready for the unexpected moments.

Eddie can now hold his bottle all by himself and drink. He has also started rolling over (from tummy to back) on occasion. He eats almost anything we put in front of him and even some things we don't intentionally put in front of him (like his sister's safety scissors, OMG that was a rough one for me). He had his first taste of green smoothies this month and he seemed to like them. He sucked them right out of the straw. He is now getting meals three times per day (still pureed foods) and has milkies 5 times per day (and during the night as well). He isn't sleeping well in his crib, so he does spend a lot of time with William and I in our bed, but we need to stop this. I think I may look into somehow getting his crib into our family closet (which is really a bedroom turned into a closet because there are not any closets in our house) so he can have his own space to sleep and we can let him try and cry himself back to sleep occasionally. Libby usually sleeps through his crying, but when she doesn't it can be trouble.
I am still plugging away at my One Thousand Gifts bible study. Here are a few more things I was grateful for in the month of January.
A warm winter day
Fresh eggs from the Gronski's chickens
Homemade Chapstick, Face Cream and Deodorant (and feeling productive while making them)
Potty training successes
Edward's wrinkled nose when he smiles really big
My sister-in-law and her great stories about dating (so glad I am not at that point in my life!)
Grandma Connie and her willingness to help me whenever I need it
A husband who listens to me
