Five Senses

Madeleine, the cutest snow angel!

Seeing
Snow, snow, everywhere, snow! We had the fifth biggest blizzard in history over the weekend (I have been in Boston for 2/5th of these!) and oh my goodness is there a lot of snow out there! We were smart and made sure to get a sled on Friday before the storm started so we got to take Madeleine sledding for her first (and second!) time. After Matty cleared out the stairs and the car on Saturday I pulled her around and she waved at the neighbors and giggled with each down slope; it was adorable. Today we took her down to the park near our house and pulled her around and then took her down a little hill with us a couple of times. We got some major belly laughs out of that! I already got out of work Friday for it and I am not-so-secretly hoping for just one more day of snow fun!

Tasting
Since I was not able to partake in the shoveling fun due to the five stitches in my hand, I was in charge of meals yesterday, and I must say it was a fun day of cooking. Breakfast was pancakes: plain, blue berry and chocolate chip; lunch was Cuban sandwiches using the leftover pork roast from Friday's dinner and, after some chocolate chip cookies for snack, I made polenta cakes, macaroni and cheese and salad for dinner. Blizzards are delicious!

Hearing
The sweet sounds of toddlerhood; Maddie is laughing, grunting to indicate things she would like, and saying something that sounds an awful lot like "no", especially when asked if she is ready for night-night or needs a diaper. It sounds so cute that I can't help but laugh as she bolts for her playroom saying "no" after we tell her it's time for a night-night story. She's also saying "milk" especially in the mornings when I am getting coffee ready and normally pour her little cup full of milk so she can have her morning drink with us.

Smelling
The Maple Pecan Porter I just pulled out of the Sam Adam's spring sampler. Tastes like pie and smells like it too!

Touching
Maddie's soft baby skin, like all the time. I love stroking her little cheek or holding her soft little hand. It is amazing how incredibly soft and delicious baby skin is. Oh how I love it!
