Scavenger Hunt Sunday 1-20-13

While we got out of the house a few times, we're still spending a lot of time at home, so all of my photos are from around the house this week. Here are my interpretations:

I took some newborn photos of Nick this week.  I used a basket that we store blankets in for most of them. A lot of the photos you can't see the basket, but this one you can.  When Addy saw this one as we were looking through them the other night, she asked, "Why did you put Nick in the basket?!"  :)

It was fairly warm out on Friday, so I sent the big kids out to play in the yard.  Ellie (and Addy) "parked" themselves on the snow and started filling buckets.  They were complaining of cold butts when they came in!

Friday was my first day on my own with all four kids.  While Ellie was at school in the morning, I set up this tub of soapy water for Addy and Will to play in with some bottles and animals.  I took this one in "Auto." :)

Nick is the fourth child, so pretty much everything he wears and uses has been worn or used by at least one other person.  We received the hat on his head and the blue blanket when Ellie was born and the white blanket when Addy was born.

People Watching
Nick has started to be a little more alert for longer periods of time.  Here he is watching his brother and sister playing in the water.  He's already shown he is strong, holding up his head for 30 seconds to a minute at a time, so I think he is going to be joining in on the fun sooner rather than later!
