It's official, we had OVER six inches of snow. I would guess around 8 at our house. Greenville, SC is currently a winter wonderland. Yesterday we had that beautiful, fluffy snow. Erik and Fender had an absolute blast playing in it. Fender was hysterical. He hopped around in it like bunny. He would jump up with all feet up in the air at the same time and then pounce down into the snow. Then he would stick his nose down in it and flick it up into the air. We got some really cute video of it, I will have to post it once we upload the video on my computer.
We brought Harper outside to check it out for a few minutes. He seemed to like it. He was trying to look around and check everything out. He was a little stiff in his snow suit but he didn't seem to mind. I can't wait until we can play with him in the snow. We are really going to enjoy making snowmen and snow angels with him one day. We can go sledding and have the occasional snowball fight :)! In a way, having kids allows you become a bit of a kid again.
In other news, Verizon has FINALLY announced that they are releasing the iPhone on Feb. 13th. Wow, that took them awhile. I had been waiting since June to renew my contract in the hopes of getting an iPhone. Then last week, I gave in and got a Droid X. So far, I have loved my Droid X. There are a few things that I am still trying to get used to but the Droid X has a great 8 megapixel camera with a flash, talk to text, this Swype feature that makes texting really easy. I love all of the apps. And it has a nice big, clear screen. With that being said, I am a Mac user, so there is still something cool about having the iPhone. I have thirty days to return my Droid X. What do you all think I should do? I am still debating.
Harper has really grown over the past month. He loves to talk and I am pretty sure that he tries to have entire conversations with us sometimes. He loves using his hands. He will remove his pacifier and put it back in his mouth. He even learned how to knock over glasses on the table. As a matter of fact, he managed to knock over two glasses at lunch the other day. If there is a plate on the table we have to be careful because he already grabs for it and pushes it away. He can hold onto small bottles and tries to hold big ones by himself. It is sad when you realize how fast they grow up but it is so amazing to see him learn new things!
