In the yard:  We had our first snowfall of the season!  Just a dusting but it hints at the winter months ahead as we burrow into the house amongst cozy blankets, warm drinks, and books that take us to far off places.

Soothing:  We did some new sensory therapy with clay.  It was a huge hit so I’m sure we’ll be doing it again soon.

Developing:  Gabriel is such a strong baby.  This past week he’s decided sitting up is the way to go.  He brings himself up to a sitting position when you have him sitting on your lap.  He’s only 3.5 months old!!!

Time with mom:  I’ve been trying to give all the kids some one on one time with me this past week while Gabriel is sleeping.  Chris and I worked on paracord bracelets.  This is our first try below but I found this tutorial on Pinterest last night that cleared up how we attach the cord on both ends of the bracelet clips.  We’ll have another try at it this week.
