Springtime has arrived – bring out the blankets!

We are so antsy to get outside once the weather warms up in spring.  As soon as it does – out come the blankets – Yay!

Every chance we get to go outside, we take.  We drag out a blanket, lots of toys, and plop Lily down in the middle of the blanket.  She’s mobile now though, so every once and while you have to pull her back onto her blanket as she’s wiggled out into the grass.  She loves to scoot around – arching her back and kicking out with her feet, or rolling over onto her side and wiggling like a worm.  Silly girl!

Gabe has been enjoying the nice weather too.  He will play with Lily (he likes to blow bubbles or tell her a story – either one will thrill her to no end) and play exploring games in the backyard.

Spring is for blankets!

These are all the pictures I ended up taking when Katie and Tom were visiting the week before Easter.  Tom had business training in Minnesota and we were so glad we got to play host while they were both in state.  We had such a nice visit – we bought and installed a basket ball hoop, visited Stillwater and hit the antique stores, celebrated Tom’s birthday, hit the Mall of America and Underwater World, tackled the sorting out the garage, had a fire and roasted s’mores.  Such fun!

Miscellaneous March

Here is a few odds and ends that happened in March.  First – Lily looks adorable:

Cupcake Lily

Isn’t she sweet?  This outfit came from Kelly.  It would make an excellent birthday party outfit with all the darling cupcakes on it.  Love the polka-dot tights.  Now that it’s warming up you’re going to see Lily in dresses a lot more.  Speaking of warming up:

Bike riding season has begun!  Yippee!  We go on long walks now, Lily in her stroller and Gabe on his bike.   We plan on doing lots of bike riding this summer.  There are nice routes of both straight roads and hilly roads in this neighborhood, so we have a variety of fun biking paths!

This is a cute little bit of Gabe’s homework.  They were working on homonyms (words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings).  This one is about flower/flour.  So funny!

We have been using the baby carrier facing out lately for Lily.  She isn’t much of a snuggler – no longer is she content to stay cuddled up against your chest (unless she’s sleepy).  She prefers to see the world all around her.  Unfortunately, she also like to grab at everything she sees.  Watch out!

Ooo - These look good!

Lily eats with a spoon!

Lily is now eating solids!  Yay!  We started her on solids just a couple weeks shy of six months.

She was a bit unsure at first – but has really starting to get the hang of it now.  She opens her mouth like a little baby bird when the spoon comes near, and seems to like just about everything we have tried – bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, corn, apples, pears, peaches, squash, peas, prunes, berries and green beans!  It did take a couple of times on the peas for her to get over her initial gag reflex to the taste – but now she can’t get enough.  She doesn’t seem to know that you shouldn’t talk with your mouth full either – the whole meal she goes “mmmm, mmmm, yum yum, mmmmm!”  It’s very cute.
