new activites

Now that the days are sunnier and warmer, there are a lot more activities to do with Andrew. We've been having fun. I would say that one of the most fun parts of being a parent to a toddler is watching them think and having fun exploring. Here's what we have been up to:

Andrew loves to play on this bike even though he doesn't exactly know how it works. Every once in a while he will accidentally push himself backwards which he finds amusing

In these next few pictures, we went to a local school playground. Most of the equipment was too big for Andrew but he still found his own way to have fun.

He had more fun in the wood chips than I ever thought would be possible. After about 15 minutes of playing in those things, it was time to move on...but not before 'sampling' a few.

Andrew looked at these kids for quite a while, trying to figure them out. I love that perplexed look on his face

We came across a rock that had water running out of it. He loves to splash so this was the perfect finding. Naturally, he left soaking wet but it was SO worth it!

Back at home, there is more splashing in his new 'kiddie' pool.

As always, Andrew just being so darn cute!!!

14 months

At 14 months, Andrew:
-has become much more vocal. He 'talks' a lot and can be quite loud when he does. I guess that's one trait he gets from his Mom
-is walking more on his own. When he first learned to walk he was very cautious and much preferred to hang on to things. Now he is finally branching out and feels more confident about walking from place to place without help
-is becoming a picky eater. I never thought I would see the day! As is typical for children his age, vegetables are hard to get down him.

Uncle Matt came for a visit this weekend. Andrew was surprisingly comfortable around his Uncle. Matt scooped him right up and Andrew didn't complain...highly unusual!

Andrew trying to escape. Not sure if he is trying to get away from me or just wanting to play outside

Spring has sprung!

It's been too long since I posted a few pics and now I have too many to share. We've been spending most of our time outside lately. Andrew begs to go for a walk or play in his swing. He is still our cautious walker but is slowly making some progress
