Sitting here watching baby girl sleep. She laid down for a little nap so sweetly. I told her I didn't want her to be too tired for gymnastics this afternoon and she crawled right on her blanket and went to sleep. I can't believe how quickly she has grown in two and a half short years... or how much that she has captured my heart!
We've had a nice morning, playing in the tree house, and doing a few chores. She said thank-for each towel I passed her to put in the dryer and helped me wash the dishes. Oh... and she is so sweet making up her bed in the morning. She pulls and tugs and straightens her blanket while I make the big bed. She's a little girl that has her Nana's heart.
We checked on the animals, and she played with a grey bunny. She spoiled him with a lettuce snack and helped herself to one as well. We checked on the chicks and Nana tried to explain that the Mama hen would flog us if we tried to get the chicks... We talked to the goats and Baabaa the sheep... and played with the kittens too of course!
The breeze was a little strong in the tree house... but it made her colorful spinners spin...whirling in the wind and she just giggled... and she played writing things on her chalkboard... (her favorite thing to do...other than climbing and sliding...Did you know that Nana can slide too... she gets such a kick out of watching Nana slide...lol)... Before we headed back to the house she had to swing a few times on the swing too...
Yep, I've just been watching her sleep and appreciating a wonderful summertime day with my Nugget!
