let me see that one, two step

BIRDIE TOOK HER FIRST STEP YESTERDAY! So exciting. So amazing to watch. I have lots of things to tell you blog readers about Birdie and what she's up to these days, but I'm usually too busy chasing her around. I promise to post a real update soon.

I can't even tell you how much I love this picture.

one little tooth

Birdie finally has one little tooth that cut through about a week ago. Can you see it?

splash pad

We have a cute splash pad in our neighborhood, and Birdie loves the freedom to crawl around and play in the water. Here are a few pictures from Friday.

We spend lots of time outside with this girl. That's where she's happiest.
About to venture into the yard....
Actually, maybe staying on the blanket is just fine....Here's a closeup of the purple flowers behind Birdie. I can't remember what they're called. I'm just impressed I've been able to keep them alive--that's a first. Here are a couple of pool pictures; Birdie loves going to the pool. This is her current funny face. Our neighbors loaned us this super cute floaty for the pool. Birdie loves it.

new pictures

Last week I went to my very first "Momma's Night Out." I went out with a dozen of the moms from our play group and we went to a painting class and all came out with our own versions of the same painting. Here's mine. I tried to make the tree look like the tree we used to have in our front yard in Colorado.

so stinkin' cute

Birdie and Teddy

Birdie hasn't really formed any attachments to stuffed animals or any other specific items yet; she seems to love all of her stuffed animals equally. Here she is with one of her bears. They have on matching dresses!

Birdie's hangout

Birdie is the perfect height to stand underneath our kitchen table.

Every mid-morning, Birdie stands at the window and looks outside for a while. The cool thing is that now she crawls to it on her own.
Today after lunch, we went to our neighborhood pool and then the swings. She was a very good girl and kept her hat on the whole time!

As usual, trying to get the camera:

It looks like I posed her legs like this, but she did it.

on the move

Birdie is getting faster with crawling (and cruising), but I haven't done a good job of capturing it yet. This is the best I've done so far.

Big Daddy and Bebe came to visit for Memorial Day weekend, and we were able to get tons of stuff down around the house. Thank you!

Here are a few pics from us hanging out in the backyard. I love these Texas evenings!

Ok, this is a peek into my true nerdy self. David installed this clothes line in the backyard so I can dry diapers, and I thought it looked pretty in the sun.
