When Peanut graduated daycare, she looked so grown up standing on that stage receiving her fake diploma. As a result of that image, I decided to call the past few months "one last summer as my baby." I knew it's where I would witness some small steps, but giant leaps for Peanut-kind. And I wanted to make sure to remember them. But most important, enjoy them. I'm glad for these memories. For capturing these moments in time. And for having one last summer as my baby:
|She went night swimming with her cousin and|
thought it was the coolest thing ever.
We went away for a few days and when I went to the motel room to change into my bathing suit I came out and there she was swimming in the deep end all by herself. (With floaties, of course.) But without either of us. I caught it from the balcony:
|That little dot in the middle of the pool is Peanut|
She's no longer apprehensive about trying new things, for the most part. Especially when it come to rides. She loves the big ones, and can't wait to be tall enough to ride the really big ones. She especially likes the ones that make daddy nauseous:
|The Tilt-A-Whirl is no longer my bag.|
|She even drags My Director on the tamer rides.|
|We went through the fun house three times.|
|Boogie board doubles as lounging device.|
|The picture is rated "Arrgh."|
Yes, I just went there.
|This is one of my favorite pictures ever.|
(Those pies were delicious, by the way.)
