Rainy Day Project

Unlike my friends and family up North, we haven't had many "snow days", but we have had TONS of rainy cold days these last few weeks! I wish they were snow days instead, but I'll take some chilly weather any way I can!!

To keep my little guy busy and away from watching too much TV, we make stuff together!

This particular project was inspired by a Curious George episode we watched together one morning! George was feeding the birds at the farm & Jack said, "Mommy, can we do that?" Yes! Yes, we can, and so we did (again!) Check out our first bird feeder project here!

Use what you have!

Before we painted, I cut a round hole for the bird to be able to reach the birdseed! After letting the paint dry, I attached the baking twine for hanging & the paper straws to the bottom of the container, to serve as resting spots for the birds! {Sorry, no pics for these steps!}

The project took us a couple days. Waiting for the paint to dry and waiting for a sunny day to hang it up, didn't come easy for a 3 year old! :) We have blue-jays, cardinals & woodpeckers that fly around our neighborhood. One of these days, I'm hoping to snap a picture of our bird friends soon! Jack likes to check the window each morning to see if any birds are having breakfast!

If you make your own bird feeders, I'd love to see your pictures & I'll post to the blog! :)

Big news!

Its been a few weeks since my last post, but we've been busy!! Lots of exciting changes in the Prose house!

I'm going into my 2nd trimester with baby #2! Our big boy Jack, is going to be a BIG brother! Here is our announcement photo we shared with family over Christmas and then a few weeks ago with more friends & family!

It was a blast taking these photos of Jack. He was a typical boy & rolled around in the grass, but always a joy and excited to become a big brother! We are eager to find out if "our" baby will be a boy or a girl, but either way, we will welcome this little angel into our family!

We've been praying and trying for baby #2 all year, and I am so grateful to be pregnant. So far, it's been unlike my pregnancy with Jack. I've not suffered from any nausea, but upset stomach and digestion problems during the entire first trimester with very little energy. Thankfully, that is beginning to pass and I'm able to keep up with my 3 year old again!

I'll close for now, and post baby bump photos soon! Thank you for all your prayers!
