Snack time!

He had fallen asleep on our way to Costco and did not move from this position until we had to get him out to put items in the cart ;). 

His favorite place to watch Thomas.

Simeon's half birthday was on the day of the opening ceremony for the Olympics. So we celebrated both :).

Dakota went to an all day men's conference, so Simeon and I went on a date to Starbucks...he enjoyed his water from a straw!

He loves the way he looks in this hat ;)

Eating poprocks sent from Grandma Blaubach for Valentine's Day!

We got him some chocolates for VDay, and he was a little concerned that I asked him to put down his apple to eat the candy ;).

A lovely couple from our church let us use their condo in Door County one weekend! It was chilly out ;).

And I wonder where Simeon gets his facial expressions from ;)

Sisters :)

A fun pool!

Lydia hadn't had her coffee yet apparently ;)

Simeon loves playing with his friends Addie and Amelia! 
Especially when he gets pulled around on his truck :).

Watching Daddy

Aunt Lyd built a sweet snowman for us to enjoy.

Lina and Belle came over for a sleepover. Slick Simeon snuck his arm around the ladies while watching Mulan 2 ;).

He was pretty delighted to have them over. Apparently, I get a little old sometimes ;). 


Simeon helping me organize his room :).

Amusing himself while I work on projects. 

612 Eastern Ave!

We like him :)

He's finding it more and more difficult to get comfortable on my lap.

Hahaha, you're obviously a comedian.

 Teething while watching "Preacher's Wife" with Aunt Lyd...making sure he sees all the classics. Now that's what I call good lookin'!

Helping make playdough.

He loves it :)

I took a Chinese Class this past semester, and they had a Chinese New Year Celebration. Simeon donned this Indonesian garb to look semi-Asian ;). 

Simeon and a little China doll :)

Addie perfecting her chopstick skills!

Lydia and I tied and won some Malaysian money :). Poor Allison is holding my child and having to use her left hand ;).

Dakota and Dad giving it a try.

So pretty!

The quite long dragon dance, that had Jenna's heart racing ;).

Nehemiah came to play! Simeon was rather stand offish at first...

But warmed up and wanted to make sure he had his nuk ;)

Sweet boy!

Saturday morning donuts from Sweet Creations...yumyum!

It was substantially below zero for a good portion of the month ;).

Simeon eating with his cuzins on Christmas Eve.

The Fam (I think I was around 27 weeks at this point)

Opening presents...he wasn't the biggest fan...I'm sure he'll come around ;).

Papa and Nana with the ninos.

Simeon during an affectionate moment ;).

Christmas morning breakfast...Simeon enjoyed this much more than his gifts :).

Merry Christmas :)

Sim's new fave hat.

Stylin' and ready to go! He really loves his new winter accessories and makes sure he doesn't leave the house without either of them :).

Christmas Day at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Getting a little help from Uncle Nate and Lina.

Just like Grandpa ;)

Simeon's first time under the mistletoe! He looks pretty comfortable ;).

His fave reading spot.

We didn't have a working stove/oven for the first few weeks in our new house. Dakota did a little demo work and switched some things around in our kitchen so now we have a fully functioning kitchen :). Simeon was rather distressed he was not able to help in the process.
