We had a progressive activity day today.
Early this morning I suggested Maisy draw a picture and I'll write her story about it. This is what she wrote:
So the picture is of Maisy with her hands behind her back looking side eye at the cake with a candle on it on the table. On the floor she's drawn her bed and a rug and above her head is a light.
Our next activity was inspired by pinterest. I decided we would start out by going for a walk in Tilden park down to Jewel lake, have a picnic and look for rocks for our end result project of painted heart rocks.
We turned looking for rocks into a pretend game of us being paleontologists going on a dig for dinosaur bones. So we dug and dug for the perfect dino bones with sticks.
We came home and I put Maren down for a nap while Maisy scrubbed all the rocks in the sink. When she was done, she went for a nap.
I woke Maisy a bit later and the rocks were ready for painting!
Here are just two pictures from an amazing birthday party we went to for our friend and neighbor 1 yr old Sage! It was at the Bay Area Discovery Museum on the most perfectly warm and beautiful January day EVER!
We've had a great start to the year! Maren is now a total walker and is very determined to WALK. She really no longer wants to be held or in a stroller or a grocery cart. It makes outings adventures. She sure has spunk- that Maren!
Maisy is surprising us daily with her talents, her compassion and how in tune and alerted she is to everything!
Both girls are such joys! I'm a very lucky mom.
Next week we'll be heading to LA for my step brother's wedding and we'll also make another trip to Disneyland with family and friends! Yay- for LA!
