Random Catch-up

I've been neglecting this blog more than I should and so now it's time to catch you up on some of the photos and videos from the last few weeks.

As I mentioned in yesterday's posting, Sweet Pea likes to climb out of her high chair now.  I wasn't able to capture it on camera yesterday because I really am not that bad of a mommy.  Today though Daddy was able to capture her while I played the role of spotter.  We really will start strapping her in...I promise!  I just forgot and then it was too cute not to get on film.  Enjoy the series:

A few weeks ago:
Gotta love summer with Concerts in the Park!  I wasn't allowed to wear my hat because Sweet Pea thought it looked better on her...which it did:

This toy is a little big for her still, but we had to give it a shot.  Don't let the smile fool you, she actually didn't enjoy it for long.  It might be a few years before her feet can actually reach the pedals.

She likes the bell though!

Last weekend:
A glimpse into Daddy's future with two adorable girls to entertain:

Another Concert in the Park...this time with a Neil Diamond tribute band! Gotta start them loving Neil from a young age like my mom did with me! I need to explain these photos...besides being cute they also show a first for Sweet Pea. I always see pictures of little ones crashed out where ever they were playing and wondered if Sweet Pea would EVER do that because she normally just starts to cry and whine when she gets tired. The concert ran right up to her bedtime and Sweet Pea was definitely tired by this point and so she actually laid down next to me! By the time Daddy got the camera out she decided it was time to do some stretching before bed, but it was as close to sleeping as we have come yet. Maybe one of these days we will find her asleep surrounded by her toys.

Video of our little jumping bean from 7/30/10:

On her 16 month birthday (7/29/10) she learned how to make her circle-of-neglect play music and you have to love the smile she gets when the music actually starts! When you hit the duck button in the center it plays a duck sound, hit it again and it says duck, hit it again and it says pato (duck in Spanish) and then if you hit it a 4th time it will play the music. She only does the center one, but since she is hardly ever in the circle-of-neglect that isn't too bad.


  1. LOL "the circle of neglect"!!!! Took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about!!! too funny. We have the same high chair and Chloe crawls out of hers too! You canNOT forget to buckle them in, that's for sure!!!!! I've learned that the hard way!

  2. wow, look at her climb. that music festival looks like it was so much fun!! wish we had something like that here.

  3. Very cute! Thanks for posting these and keep us up to date with you guys :)
