Evening at Sky Sox

We took the big kids and went to a Sky Sox baseball game with friends this evening. It was a PERFECT summer evening and it was a fun and relaxing night. We did leave our busy toddler at home with a babysitter. It might not have been relaxing had she come along. She can come when she grows up a little…

Flashback

I cleaned off a very old camera today and I found these gems.

This was 2013, soon after we had to leave Africa. N had just turned 3. This was likely their first of MANY visits to the public library here in Colorado. They wore new winter coats and boots which were certainly a novelty at this point.

What a beautiful thing. Two and a half years later we still don’t take the public library for granted… one of the amazing things about of life in America.

Book Worms and Snuggle Bugs

One of Her Favorite Things

We recently purchased a bird feeder for our balcony.

It’s pretty much one of her favorite things.

Our tiniest talker now spends half of her day pointing out the window yelling “Mommy! Birdie!!  Two birdies!!” Or “Mommy! Birdies eeeaat beafast!”, “Mommy! Birdies eeeaat lunch!”, “Mommy! Birdies eeeaat niiinner!!”.

It’s pretty much tons of fun.

And now she’s become our resident bird-feeder filler-upper. I give her a tiny cup and taught her to pour slowly and she can do a pretty decent job.

She takes a scoop…

Says“sllooow” for a reminder…

and then pours (most) of the seed in the right place…

And repeat.

It’s pretty much the cutest thing.
