Dog Days

This week has been *H.O.T* needless to say, we hung outside a lot. Did you know that it's near impossible to find a sand and water table anywhere around here?!? I had to improvise. I grabbed a storage container from the attic and we filled it up with water. Elisabeth had a great time. She preferred trying to drink out of the hose. The first day we played, she also felt it necessary to get IN the container! So get this, I'm sitting there, taking cutie pictures of her cause she kept putting her little leg up on the ledge and then BAM she plops in. I was grateful for a shockproof/waterproof camera! Elisabeth wasn't hurt or anything, I think she was pissed at getting into such cold water! Anyway, add that to my "awesome mom moments."

So now that I've been home for a week, I've run out of *things* to do with Elisabeth. We go on walks, go to the library- it had been too hot for the park, but I plan on doing that this week. What else do people do with little busy bodies??

And speaking of busy bodies, today, Ellie has been walking around the house! Just little bits here and there, but she's been walking, all by herself! I'm pretty excited for her! And her teeth are ALMOST in- and THAT I'm very excited for, just so that she won't be in so much pain anymore. Cuttin 4 teeth in a row couldn't feel good for anyone!


mmm nom, nom, nom!

Totally random- I made strawberry shortcake cake and it was *divine* seriously. Probably worth the 10lbs I'll gain from eating it.

Daddy let me get in my tub with my diaper on- we learned those diapers can hold a lot of water! (so why do they leak at night?!!)

I love the hair!

It's hard to find things to do with kids that age, since they're still a little small for children's museums, etc. You've pretty much covered the main activities I did with my kids at that age. Wish I had more suggestions for you! (Other than, enjoy being able to take her to "grown-up" places, because before long she will be getting into everything when you go somewhere and it will be a pain to take her shopping or anywhere like that! :)
