Oohhh, I love Ruggeros focaccia bread!
On July 4th, 2008, The Jib FINALLY "declared her independence" and decided she was ready to walk. She's 17 months old, and had BEEN ABLE to walk for months. She just refused to do it. Ande decided that he was just going to make her do it that day, and she did!! (YEAH!!) Now when we go somewhere, she gets mad if she doesn't get to walk! Kids are so funny!
Throwing a fit because I won't let her out of the stroller...notice the flying hat!
July 4th was a day of many firsts for the babies (the older kids weren't with us). The girls both tried cotton candy (or candy cotton as Puckey called it) for the first time. I wasn't sure if they'd like it....JUST KIDDING! What kid DOESN'T like spun sugar with flavoring in it?? (Okay, so there may be kids who don't like it, I just don't know any...)
Sharing with Daddy
Another first was the fireworks. They both LOVED them! The Jib would gasp each time a new firework exploded in the sky (good thing they weren't shooting them in rapid succession, she would have hyper-ventilated!)
We had a really nice time playing at the park together, although I did decide that Ande is no longer allowed to push Puckey on the swings...
Umm...Mama, look at what Daddy's doing...
Puckey is the little red blur in the middle of the picture
DO YOU SEE HOW HIGH DADDY PUSHED MY BABY?? She's almost as high as the top of the swingset!!
