It’s January 26th today and it already feels like spring. So Sofia and mommy went to the park to enjoy the gorgeous weather.
I’m realizing (with mixed emotions) that my baby is growing fast. Last time we went to the park she was afraid of going down the slide by herself. Today, I lost count of how many times she went, alone. And not just the kiddie slide, she only wanted the tallest, most wiggly one.
So here’s another milestone we passed, no more help needed from mommy at the park!
Today Sofia discovered she likes playing with stones. She likes to pick them up, drop them, bang them together, she’d even like to eat them except mommy always catches her in time!
During our outing this past weekend at Partridge Creek, we stopped by the play area so that Sofia can watch the kids play. But she wasn’t content with just watching, she wanted to join in. So daddy took her for a walk on the green peas, where some boys became really interested in her. She’s gonna be a heart-breaker some day ….
Sofia’s favorite toy at the moment is her play mat. It has a southwestern, cowboyish theme, with a horsey, a cow, a cowboy rooster and a pretty star, as well as a cute little mirror above.
She spends hours looking and cooing at the toys but mostly at her own reflection in the mirror. Mommy is very happy Sofia likes this play mat because she gets to catch up on house chores while the baby enjoys herself on her own … Let’s hope this phase lasts until the baby is ready to sit on her own.
Today, for the first time ever, Sofia and Daddy were home alone, while Mommy went to do some last minute Thanksgiving shopping. Both Sofia and Daddy had a blast!
