Spring!

Spring is here! sure we have another couple of days till it is "official" and the lat frost is almost a month away, but oh my spring is here!

We have been trying to spend as much time outside as possible. The flowers are blooming, the air is warm, and we are just loving spring! The bee is at such a great age for really exploring the outdoors also. She chases ants, catches ladybugs and laughs when she touches rolly polly and they roll in a tight ball. She is enchanted with the radishes and spinach and carrots that have come up in the garden and helps me water and weed every day! She can't wait for the spinach to get big enough to eat!

And we found a TURTLE in our driveway a couple of days ago. Slowly, as turtles go, he wandered through the backyard, down the hills to the fence. We opened the gate for him to get to the creek and he left. The bee loved it, she loved watching him go across the lawn slowly and find his home. It was amazing.

Huck isn't so thrilled with being outside. He seems to be a bit scared of grass, which is odd. So we have been putting him in the pack and play, or I've been wearing him. But he is outgrowing wanting to be worn all the time also. So that has been a bit sad. But he still naps for long chunks of the day, so we are outside during naptime frequently.

It's beautiful here as well. Birds are singing, nice breeze, sunny. Ah, I love spring!

Are those cloth diapers?

Erin said...

Yup, those are cloth diapers :) Maybe I'll do a post on using cloth sometime :) I love my cloth diapers :)

I love spring, too!

Don't want to freak you out at all, and I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, but just keep an eye on how Huck is about the grass -- he might have some sensory issues . . . pay attention to whether he dislikes other textures, movements, etc. All kids have some sensory seeking/sensory avoiding issues - just some more than others. He'll probably be romping around on the grass before you know it!!

You are the 4th mom in 2 days to say her baby is afraid of grass! One mom we talked to said her baby grew out of it at about age 2. Interesting!

Tara the bee was scared of grass too! She outgrew it around eighteen or twenty months, but she was terrified of it! It was hysterical, but sad too. She would be set on it and get the saddest look on her face and try to balance on her butt so her little legs didnt' have to touch it!
