Swimming & Stuff

  • March 29, 2010 12:08 pm

We took Kira swimming at the grown-up pool as part of a family play date on Saturday.  I was a little worried at how she’d do in a pool, since she freaked out in a little wading pool when she was 5 months old.  Ten months later, I was hoping she’d forgotten that traumatic experience and was ready to enjoy the fun that is water.

She was a little unsure/clingy at first, but got pretty relaxed really quickly.  Soon she was floating around, letting Daddy dunk her (which I got on video in case it should ever be needed in court – LOL), and generally having a great time.

Do I look just like my Daddy, or what?

Then of course, a few more random shots:

Mommy, can I eat the wood chips?

Someone want to open the front door, please?

A Touch of Spring

Well, the weather got nice for all of about two weeks, so Kira and I have been enjoying it with walks around the neighborhood and around in the yard.  She wasn’t so sure about the feel of sidewalk and yard under her bare feet at first, but once she got used to it, I think she’d rather be outside than inside.

Running down the driveway!

Strolling up and down the sidewalk

Hmmm...the sidewalk seems to have ended.


We also decided to open up her bedroom to her so that she’d have more places to play during the day and also so that we can start moving some of her toys in there and out of the living room.  We child proofed it by putting up all the choke-able things and bolting the bookcase to the wall.  She promptly went to work messing it up with all the happiness of a 15-month-old. 

And…another attempt by Daddy to entertain the young’un.

Trip to the Museum

I took Kira to the First Impressions room at the local science museum for children, Impression 5.  She had a great time running around playing with all the new toys in the room.  Later we explored the rest of the museum, which was a little more advanced for her, but she did like the comet display, even when a group of small children trampled her to the floor in the dark when they didn’t see her.

In water-table duds, checking things out

All those toys and still found the books

Check out this giant mouth!

Kira has decided it’s fun to climb up on stuff.  Kind of unfortunate, but a part of life.  It won’t be as bad when she learns a bit more that she can’t hurl herself forward off of things, but in the meantime, I guess we’ll just have to keep an extra-close eye on her.

Last night she accomplished climbing on top of her Intelli-table to get on top of her toy cabinet.  She was pretty proud of herself.

Note:  Needless to say, the Intelli-table has now been moved from this advantageous spot.

Just some random shots…

Nothing seriously newsworthy going on, so just a few random shots. 

Oh, Kira is making her first trip to the children’s room at the local science museum on Saturday.   I can’t wait!!

Ready to go on a walk!
