[Telling off Ryan: "no, bad!"]
I was a little confused the other week when she learned "stuck", since I didn't understand how we could possibly be saying that word enough so that 1) she would repeat it afterward, and 2) she would have opportunity to use it again. And then I realized that something seems to get stuck around here just about every day, mainly her.

So this has been rather a pathetic winter here again.... it has snowed a couple of times, but not much each time at all. We were supposed to get a big snowstorm last week though (dubbed "snowquester" by the Post, which is funny but yet not, if the sequester puts me and many others out of a job...), but yet, as tends to happen around here, it was a bit underwhelming. Instead of double-digit snow accumulation, we got maybe an inch of accumulation before it turned to rain. We had all stayed home to be on the safe side, though, and I think Josie really enjoyed the day anyway. She loved splashing in the slush and puddles, Ryan got to practice plowing the driveway with our new (to us) tractor and plow attachment (although he likened it to plowing a slushie), and Josie had a wonderful time of hitting a giant physio ball over to us so we could bounce it off her belly.

Also, one milestone happened recently that I was particularly pleased about: Josie slept through the night every night for over a week. Then she got sick (again) and her sleep suffered (again), but hey. That's progress :)
