Yea, it’s been a while…

No excuses, life got busy, blogging got pushed to the side.  So, photos!  Here’s what we’ve been up to these many months….

Sophie having a tea party with all her 'friends'

Beth made Sophie’s original cat hat (pattern from the 60’s or 70’s) but it was getting too small, so I made her the next size up.  It fits my head, so the sizing is a little off, but it works.

Living with a toddler means toys all over the place, all the time.  There is no point cleaning up in the middle of the day, toys are bound to be dumped all over the floor, on a regular basis.  At least Sophie likes to help clean up at the end of the day.

Watch where you step!

This was a Valentine’s Day craft, that is still up April 4th….  I found the original tutorial on Martha Stewart, and I love the way the hearts look in the window.

Windows are just so much more fun when they're covered with colourful hearts.

Sophie’s hair is getting long, but you wouldn’t know it with how curly it is, until her hair is stretched out and put in braids.  Amazingly for now, she sits relatively still while I try to wrangle her curls into neat little braids.  I love the little braids, they don’t stay tidy for long, her wild curls just can’t be contained.

Tiny little french braids

We regularly walk the trails across the street from our house, either to Rocky Point Park, or Old Orchard Park.  Soph likes to grab a stick along the way, to drag in puddles.

Another regular spot is the park outside the Rec Centre.   Sophie has no fear, and just grabbed onto the monkey bars, and started hanging!

Fearless

She also is a big fan of slides, obviously.

Getting ready to fly down the slide.

Now that Spring is here, the flowers are blooming all over the place.  Daffodils are springing up around the library, and stopping to smell the flowers has become a ritual.

Smelling the daffodils

When two toddlers get together, and it’s quiet for a minute, you know they’re up to something….

Every single book off the shelves, and onto the floor.

There is a new exhibit of sorts outside our library.  To bring attention to the plight of trees, an Australian artist has painted the trunks and some branches of 12 trees outside the library, with a super vibrant, non-toxic paint which will fade over time.  At first I was not into it, but now that the cherry blossoms are coming out, it looks pretty cool.

Sophie loves the blue trees.

So, that’s what we’ve been up to.  I’ll try to be on top of this blog, because it’s a great thing to look back at.
