The Great Outdoors

The weather has been pretty nice here the last few weeks/weekends. Anytime it is even kind of nice, I drag the kiddos outside to play. One day it will be 70 degrees and sunny, the next 48 and rainy. So we take absolutely every chance we get to be outside right now. Here are some photos of what the Harv has been up to lately.


A typical setup when we go outside to play with Mary Helen.


Such a sweet sweet girl.


Harvey loves to eat some grass. I try so hard to keep him off of it, but he's a determined little guy. I figure we're vegetarians, so he's just doing what comes natural. Now if he could just get his arms around that tree..........


I took him on a picnic in our backyard this Wednesday on our day off.
Again, with the grass.


Ok, mom said I can'ts has dat grass ober dere----what about DIS grass ober here???



He decided I didn't know what I was doing with his food---I was feeding him much too slow. So he snatched the bowl out of my hand and threw his food everywhere. Good idea.
So, ams I suppose to eat off da gwound now? Dats sick!


We all went out after dinner the other night to enjoy the sunset.






And I've decided I LOVE to do photo shoots at the park. If these don't make you smile, I don't know what will.




So stinkin precious!

Harvey's started to do some new things over the last few weeks, so here are a few Harvey updates.

*He's a lean, mean waving machine. He loves to wave at anyone and everyone. Today while we were in Stride Rite, he saw himself in a mirror and waved at himself for quite awhile. He really loves himself. :)

*Last weekend we bought him a ball, and he LOVES it. He figured out how to roll it back, so this is quite a fun little game for him.

*He has been clapping for awhile now, but recently he has really put it together. He claps when I sing(mostly because I'm awesome), when he hears music, when I'm done singing (because he has good taste and he knows his mama's amazing).

*He just started saying "da-da". Not really referring to John quite yet. He says it anytime I say "mama". Of course. Dada is always the favorite, even when they still don't quite know what they're saying.

*He learned how to sit himself up when he's laying on his belly. Very helpful.

*He just started reaching for us this week. He's still trying to figure out how to harness that power. He reaches for us all the time----like when he's having his diaper changed, when we're wiping his nose, when he's been in his highchair for what he feels like is too long. He thinks he should be able to get out of any situation, simply by raising his arms. Silly magic arms, why don't they work all the time?!!

*He now signs 'more' when he wants more when he's eating. It's a bit modified from the real sign, but we all know what it means. He's a genius (when there's food involved).

*And while I've been writing this post, he has started real crawling. Like on his knees and everything. Way to go Harvey!
