Today we went to the spray park with some local moms. BigKid had a blast. I thought the water was pretty cold, but she was right in the thick of it. She did go back to play in the grass after about 40 minutes, when she got too cold for sprinklers. When she warmed up again, she went back in the water. And my camera apparently takes really good crisp pictures (that have been sized down for the blog, lol) when you figure out all the options for manual mode. It’s not just a point and shoot after all!
Today we went to the lake again with Scott, Mark & Kim. Great fun was had by all, especially BigKid. She went in the inner tube (with a grownup) twice, once with Kim and once with me. She LOVED it. Unfortunately, there are no pictures. Because although I remembered to bring the camera this time, I left the memory card in the computer, and apparently I can’t take pictures without it.
I do, however, have a photo of the aftermath. We were walking around the parking lot while the guys got the boat loaded back on the trailer and BigKid tripped over a rock. So I give you, baby’s first road rash.
Truth be told, this photo is from after we got home, and she’s crying about something completely unrelated. She cried for about 10 seconds when it actually happened and then wanted back down to play again. Everyone thinks she is very brave for wanting to go on the inner tube and for recovering so quickly from her fall.
And where did this toddler come from?
BigKid no longer crawls. She has better things to do, apparently. She figured out how to stand up without holding onto anything a few days ago, and since she can carry more with her hands in the air, who needs crawling? Too cute to see those short little legs cruising around the house. Even cuter when she starts dancing to whatever music might be playing. Shaking her little bum around. Very, very cute. Time to start looking for the Salsa Tots schedule.
Some pictures and a brief update.
We now have a 1 year old. She walks, almost runs, and stands up all by herself. She weighs 19.5 pounds and is 29.5 inches tall.
This one is way closer to my size than that one we have at home.

I was very excited to see them.
