We love playing outside

Despite a few (or four) scuffed knees and some dirt in their mouths, the girls have LOVED going outside each day and discovering new things. Phillip and I are in the process of getting a swing set and cleaning the garage. Two things that will greatly help our daily explorations. Here are some pictures from our recent outings.

We went to the park yesterday with the girls. They were so big!

Trying out all the new toys

Avery swinging. She wasn't too sure about the swing until Atley also started swinging. Then she knew it was okay and started clapping and waving her arms.

Atley was a natural swinger. She was even pumping herself!

Back at home...Avery hanging out on the kitchen cabinet.

Phillip blew up our pool and put a bunch of plastic balls in it. The girls really enjoyed playing in this outside in the grass and now Atley's favorite thing is to throw the balls down the didn't last for long :)

First Haircuts! Phillip's mom came over and cut the girl's hair. Just a trim to help even it out...

Sharing! They have such a give and take relationship at this age... Atley is usually the biggest helper and is always finding pacis', lambs, or sippy cups and giving one to Avery. Already the little mama.

They are drinking sippy cups for 3 out of 4 meals so far. It was a fairly easy transition and we are only doing the bottle for before bed.

They are also eating organic cheerios from little kiddie bowls. All of these little independant things they are doing are really helping mommie out :)

How could I not add this sweet picture of Avery....always climbing in and out of things.

Our little girls...all 3 of them!

Avery was so funny. This was her first time in the grass (her first real time) and she didn't want her feet to touch the grass. She kept that foot off the ground the entire time she was sitting there. Lately I've noticed a rash spreading from her legs now to her tummy....I wonder if she was trying to tell me something?!

My mom, Nana, was here that week and helped us play outside.

This is one of 5 tunnels that we bought at a garage sale. The girls were just learning how to get in and out.

That is all for now!
Blessings to you all!
