Mid Summer Thoughts

"Go see Debbie, How many days Mommy?" This is a phrase we hear frequently these days. Cambry (and the two of us) are very excited to be making a trip to see Joe's sister in California this weekend.

Here are a couple of photos from our June outing to the zoo. Feeding the birds was her favorite.

Playing outside in the $10 pool is priceless.

Two sweet little smiles to share with you!

These two pix are from the 4th of July. We ventured downtown for the fireworks. It was late, she enjoyed it...until... "Fall down and hurt the knee at the fire-yerks." Getting even the tiniest scrape if the end of the world. We of course had to leave right away. :) She is still taking about it, along with the scrape from Grandma's and the one from the zoo (both over 1 month old, completely healed, and invisible.)

On the bright side, her language skills are incredible. She has gone from using 3 words in a sentance at 18/19 months to creating whole stories, using verbs in the corrrect tense, and labeling objects with several adjectives. Amazing! (All mother's say that don't they?) I know that signing with her for the last 18 months can be thanked for much of her mind blowing language development.

Here are a couple of pictures of her first pony ride. We are at a little carnival the day after the 4th of July. She insisted that I stand back; she could do this on her own. Such an independent creature and still just as meticulous as ever. Some of her favorite things lately are: motorcycles, airplanes, swimming pools, tennis shoes, high heels, coats, and "Sfub - Bob" (Sponge Bob). The cutest thing she says, well one of the cutest, is "Mommy maked a mess." She says this everything I am bent down cleaning up one of the messes she made.

That's it for now. I hope everyone is staying cool. Look for us next week, pictures of the ocean and the beach! Take care.
