Leah and Joel hanging out together after church.

I try to get Leah outside to the park often even though I feel so busy right now. It is good for both of us to get out of the house to enjoy some sunshine and let Leah get some exercise. Joel usually spends all of our time outside the house asleep as the Baby Bjorn, car seat and stroller all make him pretty sleepy.

This is how we do the park nowadays. I adore Joel’s “Opa hat”. My Opa (what we called my mom’s dad, Dutch for grandpa) always wore a hat like that except his didn’t have any funky plaid or bright colours so this style of hat is now known to us as an “Opa hat”.

One of Joel’s first smiles. Grandma knows how to squeeze a couple out of Joel. He smiled his first awake smile a week and a half ago on Wednesday. Smiles are still a rare sighting around here from him but the yawn is an old regular.

Leah: Mommy, I want it
Me: Excuse me
Leah: Can I hold Joel please?
Me: Sure

Leah and I had are first picnic of the year last Saturday. She was happily playing outside while I cut the lawn and Granddad and Morgan fixed our deck. I noticed time was ticking away quickly before we had to leave for her preschool open house so I brought her food outside so she wouldn’t have to take her jacket and shoes off and then back on again after lunch. Granddad was using his loud drill so she would take a few bites then cover her ears while he was drilling and then eat a few more bites.
