Summertime is upon us. And we are enjoying these slower days. Don't get me wrong - life is still wackadoodle crazy with a toddler and teen but it's at least crazy at a bit slower pace right now. Tiny has taken full advantage of more down time and has recently become absolutely enamored by stuffed animals, dolls and toys of all sorts. She also prefers that Dave get in on the play game.

Truth be told, he's much better play time than I am. :)

We also checked out the local splash pad and, while she looked adorable, Tiny had no idea what to do at this place with random water. Hopefully she'll get into the swing of things next time.

We also went to the SLC pool (i.e. indoor) where she preferred the hot tub. And let's be clear that it wasn't actually hot. More like lukewarm. The rest of the water was quite cold and she was NOT having it. 

Surveying the lawn and neighborhood has become a bit of a summer staple. As have adorable outfits and shoes I wish came in my size.

She's also become quite the tiny terror when it's time for me to get dressed in the mornings. We generally have a short week when Dave only works a couple of week days followed by a long week where he works four or five 12-hour shifts in a row. That would be this week. So getting dressed with this munchkin is, let's say, an adventure. And tonight will be full of pizza, baseball and an early bedtime. Momma is tired.

Today was also my baby's last day in the baby room at daycare. It's amazing to me just how tiny she was on her first day. She was wearing preemie clothes and diapers. And they were too big! Now she's in a size 4 diaper and 9-12 month clothes. Yes, she's almost 19 months old so she's still super small. But the progress she's made is remarkable. As is the love her sweet teachers have shown her.

She is very rough and tumble, though, so I have no doubt she'll full embrace being an official toddler, going out side to the playground, and being a "big kid." :-)
