parades and swimming and gardening. :)

Last weekend, Leah and Lenna were in the Redmond Derby Days parade - the girls had a blast in their decked out red, white, and blue wagon. During the week, we had our last week of swimming. Leah had such a blast. They have a blue floating mat for the kids to crawl across, and the first week, Leah was so scared to go across it. On our last day, it was no big deal and she went across as many times as they'd let her.

We went to the park a whole bunch too, because Leah talks about it pretty constantly. If you ask her about what's at the park, she'll tell you about the 'dwings', the 'dlide', the 'wocker' and the 'pinner'. And as soon as we get within sight of the park, she starts climbing up and out of her stroller in happy screams. She can climb up the stairs to the slide all by herself now, and get positioned and come down all by herself. It's crazy awesome.

Today Daddy was home, and so we did tons of gardening. We took two trips over to home depot, and Leah loved smelling the Jasmine tree.

With all that we've been doing, Leah has been a sleeping machine. She asks to go to bed around 6:30, and sleeps until about 7:30. She lays down for a quiet time in the early morning for about an hour (just hangs out in bed and relaxes), and then goes down for a big 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon. I'm writing this so that when this sleeping schedule changes and I'm not this lucky anymore, or when Rory is here and I'm sleep deprived and have no "me" time, that I'll remember that I once totally had it made. :)
