Slowing down

January was a whirlwind for us, like I'm sure it was for many of you as well! We traveled every weekend except this past one and we can't believe February is here. I don't believe in New Year Resolutions, but I do believe in striving to make your life better - one of my goals for this year is to slow down. It's hard to do, but it's worth it in the end. We are reminded every day in subtle ways just how great life is, but also how quickly it passes by.

So, the Cains slowed down this weekend (only one of us went out of town and that was for one night!)! The weather helped us to slow down as well, but slowing down doesn't mean we're not having fun!

So what's a typical day like in the Cain household (when you can't go outside!) with an almost 10 month old - well here goes:

Let's see if Yo Gabba Gabba is on - those people are crazy!

Peeking around to see my Meme

This is mid-hit on the music maker - it's the first thing she does the second she gets in

Yay! Touchdown for Daddy's team - I've seen Daddy do this A LOT this football season

Having such a good time!

Daily Training Session with Cain

This picture needs some explanation. Cain and Catherine Ellis have been friends from the beginning, but now they are really beginning to enjoy each others company. Cain has been working each day with Catherine Ellis on throwing the ball. He LOVES to fetch and she loves to play, so what a pair they make. He's a great teacher - very patient, kind, and rewarding (with big kisses and talking) - and she's a great student. He thinks she is great and she thinks he is so funny. What is not to love about a big slobbery ball?? So, each day for a few minutes they work on playing together. It's hysterical and we hope to capture it on video soon.

Mommy & Meme did break away to do a tiny bit of shopping -
I was too excited to take the tags off!

Truly amazing - these little hands are so fun to watch!

What a great weekend we had slowing down and spending time with our families! February will prove to be a busy one too, but we plan to take another time out soon and enjoy a bit of the simple life. Happy February!
