The last week has been amazing around here. The sun has been out, temps were in the low 70s, it was dry and clear as a bell, and everything was blooming.
(That is not our house. This is a shot from our garage. But that is our magnolia in bloom.)
S and I have fallen into a nice springtime routine. After breakfast we head out and do some errands. By the time we get back it's usually naptime, then she has some lunch and hangs out in the house.
Sometime in the late afternoon we put on S's Crocs and head outside.
The first couple of times, S was really tentative around new surfaces. If she started to wobble near the mulch or the grass in the back yard, she'd throw her hands out but try her hardest not to touch the alien surface. After finally getting her hands dirty, she got more comfortable with the whole situation. Now she motors straight toward the rose bush or the backyard.
S is fascinated by the (too many) dandelions in the yard. By next year she'll have figured out how to blow on them.
We're going to have to figure out a new routine this week since it's going to rain for days on end. But S has a really cute raincoat, so I'm sure we'll figure it out.
