It's mid-March and it's acting like early Summer. I keep waiting to wake up to frost or cold weather, but the sun shines merrily in the sky begging us to be outside and see the new life peeking through and blooming out.
All covered in a veil of yellow pollen.
So we rub our eyes and sniff our stuffy noses and enjoy it to the hilt.
We finally got our trampoline up. It'd been sitting in the garage for a year.
A year, people. Because we get ourselves all up in a big hurry.
Anyway. The kids love it! They spend hours a day out there bouncing around, playing games, reading books, laying flat on their backs or bellies. Just enjoying the beauty that is a trampoline.
Since it has this lovely netting up the sides that is so securely attached to the frame, we also pretend it's a giant play pen for Daniel. He's safe, he's happy. It's a thing of true beauty.
Speaking of true beauty... have you seen my kids? I kind of like 'em. A lot!

I am ten months old and...
...I have five teeth.
...I am pulling up and cruising all over the place.
...I have started babbling. It's really cute.
...I'm learning 'no'. It's not really cute.
...I have begun to fight nap times. It's not really cute, either.
...I will tolerate anything if it comes from my brother.
...I don't tolerate as much when it comes from my sisters.
...I have zero interest in using a sippee cup.
...I want your attention, but I would prefer to not sit in your lap or be cuddled close...
...but you can carry me around all day long. Just don't sit.
...I love this warm weather thing. I spend a lot of time crawling around on the deck and cruising around in the yard in my stroller with one of my siblings pushing me.
...I want food.
...there have been tornadoes today. Like the kind my family endured just a few days before my birth.
...I am really good at manipulating the steps. It makes Mommy nervous.
...I am beginning to mimic hand gestures. I will wave 'Bye-Bye' and am working on signing 'please'.
