Sweet Things

It's afternoon nap time, which means I should be cuddled up under the green blanket with some food network. But I wanted to record a few little sweet moments before they scattered right on out of my brain...
  • We went to the park Friday with Carolynn and Callahan, and Jenny, too. Phoebe and Callahan went for a ride in the Radio Flyer, and seemed to have great fun-- even though neither of them looks like it here! The new spring weather has brought us outside a lot these last several days, and "Radio Flying" has become one of our new favorite pastimes.
  • Yesterday after church, Phoebe fell asleep -- hard -- to some Praise Baby... she never falls asleep anywhere except her crib or car seat. But she was so tuckered out, the minute I got her to sit still, she was out like a light. She didn't even wake up when Michael put her in the crib, which is nothing short of miraculous.
  • Phoebe is changing so much, so fast... today, she helped me put clean laundry in the laundry basket. Usually she just stands there at the dryer, but today she actually put every single dry red item into the basket. She also will now help Daddy put away her bath toys after a bath -- but not before saying bye-bye and kissing each one.
  • We were able to go an entire "wake time" (about 2 1/2 hours) with a bow in our hair! It's tiny, and yes, it's the kind that holds to supposedly one strand of hair... but it's also amazing that we can finally wear a bow!
And now... naptime for me!

Ah, we too are struggling with bows/clips in hair. I found some tiny little clips at Target that she seems not to notice and will leave alone, but everything else gets pulled out immediately. I tried a tiny pony tail on the top of her head this evening, to which Kathryn threw an all out temper tantrum... Guess we'll stick with the clips. Good luck to you!
