More playtime outside. When we bought this house, I had no idea how much we'd use it after we had kids. I'm so thankful we have all this space and grass to run around. As soon as the sun started shining through the clouds this morning, we headed outside.
Last night, I discovered a nest of baby robins in our honeysuckle. They are so young they hardly have any feathers. They just sit in their nest with their heads pointed to the sky and their mouths wide open hoping their mama will come and bring them a worm. It's the cutest thing. The nest is in the dead center of the image and if you click on the image and make it bigger you can probably get a look at some little birdy heads.
And some videos. Last year, my cousin Angie posted a video on her blog of her son eating fresh peas out of their garden. At the time I was so in love with that video and the idea of my own kids doing the same that I swore I'd plant them the next year...and I did. Here is Jack picking all the peas out of the pea pod. Avery wouldn't put them in her mouth. She was also obsessed (as you can hear in the background) about a slug we discovered that she named Slimey. She was terrified of him and it took some major discussions to assure her that he wouldn't hurt her and he doesn't move much at all.
This last video is another conversation with Avery. Sometimes I have a hard time following her because our talks don't generally make any sense from beginning to end. They end up being little snippets of a bunch of different topics. This one starts out about a surprise for me, then turns into a talk about my birthday, a surprise for my birthday, then about birthday cake and that you eat it with a fork. The video ends with Jack hucking rocks in his basketball hoop. He's lucky none of them landed on his toes...
