This is Little Girl in her teepee (gifted by grandpa & Uncle Jonathon). You can't see it, but that's what she's inside in those last few pictures. It is so hilarious to watch her crawl in and play with her toys or read a book. Sometimes we close the front and see how long it takes before she stops playing music on her drum and pokes her head through. She usually takes a quick glance to make sure we're still there and then resumes with her playing.
We're still here Little Girl, we're always be.
Even when you're 16 and you just want us to GO AWAY! <---I hope not.
Last night our good friends (and one of the only couples we know with a youngster as well) kept L.G. We ate a big, fat doughnut from Gourdough's, an amazing food trailer that serves the most decadent doughnuts. We got the Flying Pig. A doughnut smothered in maple icing and topped with bacon. After that we just went home, layed in bed and watched High Fidelity (we love making fun of Laura's man voice!) for the umteenth time.
It's important to remember US. Because US made THIS:
I know that's not correct English, but you know what I mean. Here she is drumming without a care in the world at our friends house early in the morning. Although I missed my little alarm clock (when my friend, Jessica sent this pic I hugged the phone), I know it's important that I get more at ease with being away from her. Because one day she will WANT to leave, and that will be okay. Just as long as she comes back...LOTS. Because I'm always gonna miss my Little Girl when she's gone. ALWAYS.
Today, Mommy & Daddy HAD to get haircuts. Little Girl was so good. Well, besides trying to play with the testers of hair products. But really, who can resist?
Rediscovering Sophie! Best teether ever.
Shirtless breakfast. Wish I could still get away with that...or not.
Folded Up Tunnel Fun!
Remember that tunnel (from IKEA) she crawls through? Well, even when it's folded up she manages to utilize it. Yesterday she discovered how to crawl in and out of it, which she did, over and over and over and...you get it. She also likes to push it around like it's a shopping cart. She grabs things as she goes and tosses them in. Blocks, oh yeah! I want some of them! Little wooden car? Yep, you're coming along for the ride too! She usually pushes until she gets stuck under the credenza. The tunnel gets stuck, or SHE actually does. Either way, it cracks me up.
When Daddy got home we went to the Austin Children's Museum. I had never been, and the last time Daddy had was when he was ten, which was, like...a long time ago ;) Wednesdays they have community night. You donate what you can as admission (suggested $1 per person) and from 5-8pm the museum is yours! We got there around 6:30 and stayed until exactly 8! It was so much fun we didn't even look at the clock once. The best part is that there's something to do for kids 3 and under. Lots of times, kid friendly doesn't mean baby friendly, so it was nice to have an area just for the babies where we could relax. As usual, Little Girl was in love with all the kiddos. She made a few friends and had the most fun with this step stool, that of course isn't intended to be a toy, but ended up being one anyways. We've decided to make the museum a regular thing for sure. Totally worth $3!
