It was a pretty hot Saturday morning when we went to the farmer's market. We tasted and bought some yummy peaches and walked down to the end of Main Street to see the trains. Caroline would have stayed all day, but her cheeks were turning pink and it was just way too hot out.
Grampy came for a visit and brought Adon and Gabe along. We had a great time playing Wii, running in the sprinkler, looking at airplanes, going out to eat (and waiting a long time for a table), and just hanging out and spending some good time together.
In July, I joined a blog circle and we documented breakfast time. This month our blog circle is documenting what getting ready looks like. Be sure to check out Stephanie's blog next.
Getting ready is always an adventure with two little ones. It's just more fun to play and move and wiggle and run. And the diapers...oh so many diapers.
Julia's getting pretty quick. She's been starting to crawl so any chance she gets, she's on the go.
Getting ready usually requires a trip to the dryer to find clothes. This time, Caroline left as quickly as she came, leaving Nighny and Another One Nighny behind.
Caroline is becoming quite independent. She still needs some help with her clothes, but she loves to brush her teeth herself. She's actually getting pretty good at the back-and-forth brushing motion. She always informs me "Caroline first" when I ask her to go brush. Mommy finishes up just to be sure we keep those teeth clean and white!
And what girl doesn't need to spend a little time on her hair! Oh that beautiful, red hair!
Head on over to Stephanie's blog to see what getting ready looks like for her!
Eating and sitting and crawling, oh my! Lots going on this month. Sweet potatoes were one of your first foods...I'd say you liked them! You've been sitting up like a champ and you're even starting to army crawl. We had some fun playing around with shadows and the bright morning light.
Caroline is eager to help out with chores. She wanted to help Daddy take out the trash and recycling. She did her job well, two Nighnys in tow and all.
I started a little project in hopes of capturing the everyday, every day. 7 days done....358 more! Here's what I shot this week. I'm also posting these as I take them over on my Facebook page: facebook.com/donnacoppinphotograph.
"It's the perfect wheel!" she said over and over as she examined the tricycle wheel. We looked at each other wondering where she learned that phrase. It must be from one of her "shows," we concluded. She did not want to give Daddy the wheel when it came time for its turn during assembly. She clung tightly informing us, "It's the perfect wheel, it's the perfect wheel." We eventually convinced our passionate, newly two, Caroline, that we should put the wheel on the tricycle because she would have a lot of fun riding on it. Even after "the perfect wheel" found its new home on the tricycle, almost tearful cries of "want the perfect wheel, want the perfect wheel" could be heard resonating in the halls.
With Caroline's "help," assembly took a little longer than planned, but it was finally time to gear up in her Minnie helmet and take the tricycle for a spin. "The perfect wheel" turned out to be a little squeaky, but hearing the wheel turn as she rode down the hall only completed the picture. The Minnie helmet quickly became a required accessory not only for tricycle riding, but also for coloring at the table, watching tv, eating, and reading.
