Slapstick comedy and other pics

28 02 2013

Apparently Amelia already has a slapstick sense of humor…

She also loves a truck book given to her by one of mommy’s colleagues this past week.

Last weekend was the last “Mama Goose on the Loose” class with our friends Owen and Miss Laura and others. It was a fun Saturday activity!

We drove to Richmond, VA to meet up with Carrie and Leila this weekend. They had to drive quite a bit longer than us- we were really thankful they came.  We had a great time together. We went to the downtown location of the Childrens Museum of Richmond and then discovered they had a Short Pump location near our hotel too. Amelia and Leila had a lot of fun playing together at the museum both days.

They both love babydolls

and eating out at restaurants.

We all enjoyed the hotel. They even had pots and pans to “play with”.

They both love to take walks. Daddy took a lot of long walks with them in the hotel hallway. (Warning: this video is over 5 minutes long but it’s filled with cute hugs!)

They liked the vegetable garden and fishing boat at the museum.

The indoor “sand” box held their attention the longest.

They played a lot of games at lunch.

It’s cute just to watch them eat together.

Such a fun and cute age!

One of my Valentine’s Day gift from Paul was to come home to our new nursery furniture all put together this evening! He even patched up wall holes and touched up paint tonight. I am so excited! I’ve already put our fun new and hand-me-down baby boy clothes into the dresser and infant supplies in the changing table. I’m starting to feel more ready for what is coming in 8 weeks or less…
