Our world is now full of school (hers and mine), playdates, swings, babbling, rolling, and solids.
Last Labor Day we spent the long weekend with my parents in Maryland and mom and I ditched the guys and went to a fabulous pick-your-own farm. This year we have a 6 month old. What a difference a year makes!
Em had another artistic week this week, she made this “Sassy Sunflower”. We need more frames around here! Em is just loving her day care so much and that is fabulous! She hugs her teachers (but always has a hug for mommy when I pick her up), LOVES going for rides in the buggy (a 4 seater that sits the kids 2 by 2). She sits in the front with her little friend Kai and apparently they were holding hands in the buggy the other day. I cannot wait to see that picture!
But no matter how happy she is in school, she still loves play time with daddy and especially play time with Sophie the best giraffe teether on the planet!
Fridays I don’t have classes and Em’s day care closed at 1:00 for the holiday, so we made a play date with her friends. We met Stella, Gavin and Hayden at the park. We got there early to play and Em had SO much fun! We brought the playmat, a bunch of toys and then we found out that Em fits in and loves the swing!
and we sat with no hands on the ground! First with a hand on her leg and then no hands!
And then we played with her friends and got back in the swing, this time with Hayden, who has the best smile! She loved the swings too and Em had so much fun playing with her.
A few more swing pics. If we ever do move, we need a house with a pool and a swing. Forget kitchens and bathrooms, this kid is all about the water and the swings!
This weekend we also played at home, because you can’t spend every day on the swings!
Play time was followed by story time with daddy – always a big hit – he does voices!
(are you sick of pictures yet??)
We have been using D’s old t-shirts as spit rags, but yesterday he found out that it is easier just to put the shirt on Em. It is a MUCH better rag that way, and it was a great rag to begin with!
And then, to wrap up the holiday weekend, Em played in her swing. We just started putting on the toy bar and she likes it a lot!
