It has been such a great day that I am blogging twice (now that is a good day...most days it is hard to get one in!) I have had so much fun with Mili today and she must have had a lot of fun too because she didn't want to go to bed tonight. It was way too pretty to not be outside so we just had to go out again. We sat on our "neatsheet" (the blue thing in the pictures....if you don't have one, you should....they really work.....repels water, sand, and I don't know what else but we didn't get wet sitting on the ground). We sat there for almost an hour enjoying the birds feeding from the grass (Mili learned the sign for bird and is so cute signing it), blowing bubbles, and reading books (from the library). One of the pictures above shows Mili signing "more". She wanted more of everything. Her behavior was incredibly good today as well. She sat on the neatsheet and didn't try to get on the grass (it probably helps that she doesn't like the feel of the grass on her bare feet anyway). She was just happy with everything today (I love those days and try to take advantage of them as much as possible....today I was successful in doing so).
After Mili's nap we had creative play in Mili's floatie for the pool. It was her idea to get in and my idea to pull her around the house. After a few rounds of this my back was breaking so I ended up tying a towel to it so it is easier for me to pull (up and down the hallway and all around the living area, Mili Bear giggling the whole way). She has truly been a joy today. I am so glad Mili Bear is ours to love and care for. I love my life (great husband and great baby....what more can one ask for).
Hugs and Kisses!!! Hope you enjoy the pictures of our precious Mili Bear.
