Water hose on Wednesday.


It was a normal Wednesday afternoon.

We went out into the backyard to play.

She played in the sand and water cart.

She meticulously scooped sand into her cup and poured it into Lola's water bowl.

Multiple times.

She then started saying, "Bubbls....Bubbls"....so I caved and went and got some.

She opened the bubbles.

Poured them into Lola's water bowl.

And stirred.

I just sat back and watched. It was one of those days in which I thought, "Is what she's doing really that big of a deal??"

"Nahhh!" (And yes- I do answer my own questions in my head.)

Anywho....when it was time to go in...I thought it the right thing to do...to clean out Lola's water bowl.

Only....this chubby-handed toddler whisked (yes- whisked) it out of my hand!!

Again....I showed no resistance....and went in to get my camera. (I'm so weak...:)





And yes....that hose head is clean (?????)










At least she tried to accomplish what I had originally set out to do...


I think it's full now...


I guess she was still thirsty???

She got a little choked up here....with that water shooting straight into her mouth....


But it didn't slow her down one bit....

Look what she can do. I'm so proud. :)


She's mesmerized!



So happy with herself....

A funny story..

...well...I don't really know if you would call it funny...but Parker did something funny/cute today that I wanted to record.

We were playing outside. She had played in her sand and water cart for a while.

Then we went inside to get her Lovey and her stroller to bring back outside with us. To which she pushed her Lovey around the backyard for a while.

Then she sat on the doorstep while "sh-shing" Lovey (who was still in the stroller) and "bouncing" the stroller (like we do with Payton in her bouncy seat).

(all the while...I am just watching her from the middle of the yard...I was still sitting by the sand and water cart)

Then I see her stand-up...pick up Lovey...and then she starts fake crying..."Ahh-huhuhu....Wah- hehehe!"

From afar....I get this confused look on my face....and think...."Why is she 'fake crying'? Nothing's wrong right now." I admit....she does this often...but usually only when she wants something that she cannot have.

Ok- on with the story.

So after she does the fake crying...."Ahh-huhuhu....Wah- hehehe!"

She stops. And then immediately starts bouncing, patting, and "sh-shing" Lovey.

She was fake crying for Lovey!!! And then tried to calm her down with the bouncing, patting, and "sh-shing"!

I thought it was so sweet...too funny...and I never wanted to forget it.

Trying to dress herself...

saturday at granny's...


Today...my sister, my mom, me, Parker, and Payton loaded up my mom's car and headed to my Granny's house for a visit. We don't get to see her as often as we like due to school and busy lives...and mainly just pitiful excuses....but now that I am not in school until the end of August...I am able to visit more frequently.

We had a great day! We visited. Parker colored. We ate lunch. We visited some more. I took Parker for a little walk....





She sure did love those rocks! Granny was even nice enough to let us bring a few home....along with an empty vinegar jug (?) (pictured a little later) that we put some rocks that would fit into the empty jug...where she would shake it around and make a very loud noise....which she also loved. :)







Don't know what really compelled me to take a picture of this bird...and then, to go as far as to post it....but I think what I was thinking was that I wanted to see how close up I could get with the lens...and then I just wanted to include it because the sky was a pretty blue and I thought I'd share...

Today was also special because it was the first time that Parker has gotten to "hold" her cousin. I was sitting right next to her while Kristin was taking pictures. I really tried to narrow the number of pictures down for the blog because to you- they may all look the same (because they kinda do)....but to me....each picture has a different face for Parker (and Payton, for that matter)...a different moment... and there was just something so sweet about it. Parker loved holding the baby. She would pat her belly lightly and then gently rub it. She'd point to her ears. And she loved to give her kisses. And she even through a semi-fit when we took Payton out of her arms. It was just really sweet.



















And last...but not least....Granny with the girlies...


(this is the empty vinegar jug to which I was referring to earlier...)




Then end.

And now I'm off to read....for FUN! (Something else I never get to do during the semester!)
