We are rill clazzy here in Idaho. Plastic bags on Ada's legs due to our lack of actual snow appropriate wear, my dad's old, gross, blood-splattered hunting sled, my awesome borrowed boots straight from 1985, etc, etc...
The putting on of the plastic bags. Which she didn't really need because a fall would probably land her on her butt. Duh.
All bundled up with Sweetie.
The infamous "sled". We did put towels down to shield her from the blood.
I think she enjoyed it.
There are three animals in this pic and a dog right off camera. Ada Heaven.
Land of the 3 dollar movie and 35 dollar pedicure. Goodbye New York City. I'm not at all sad to be missing my 7th Christmas with you. I'll see you later--after all the crowds die down and make it pleasant once again for the locals. We're starting out in Salt Lake and Midway and ending in California. I love Utah. I really do.
Went to the Central Park Children's Zoo this afternoon and this happened. Yup--it appears that this one will be an animal lover. It's sort of inevitable. I guess my genes are stronger than Kyle's after all (obviously it's a competition).
So. Many. Babies. Here's Ada and June meeting for the second time. I've never seen her show so much interest in a baby before. The only time she ever touches her doll is when she's throwing it out of her way. Not the maternal type.
Bought white pants and a white button-up shirt, made the cape, desperately sought out a Bedazzler but ended up gluing on the rhinestones. $50 later and I'm not sure one primary party makes the hassle worth it. Must find something to do tomorrow... I guess at this age it's really more about the pictures.
That hand in her mouth is the reason Ada's already had two colds in the last month. The pediatrician told me that NYC kids will be sick 9-12 times between September and April. 9-12 times!!!!! 2 down, 10 to go...
I think I'm sort of over blogging--just not motivated AT ALL. But here's a pic of Ada all bundled up and ready to go out this morning. Really, what else needs to be said (except that she has giant, lobstery man hands. Bad angle)?
Animal sound apps. She will actually sit still for several minutes in front of this thing. Every one who knows this child can see what a big deal that is. The glazed-over look she gets is disturbing but at least it's sort of educational, right??
I'm trying to be better about taking pictures when we are out and about. I really have no excuse with the camera on my phone being so decent. I'm just terrible at documenting.
So here we go: We went to a tumbling class this morning with friends, Jacob and Annalisa.
Just in case you missed her, she's the one with "Ada" written across her back.
Bubbles are becoming a theme on this blog.
We took advantage of the gorgeous 75 degree weather by making a pit stop at Shake Shack (don't be too jealous Jessie. I was thinking of you and your non-access to delicious, beautiful meat the entire time).
Running around the Natural History Museum grounds.
Ada was so exhausted after all of this that she actually fell asleepin the stroller on the way home. I know, I know. I couldn't believe it either. Next goal: taking pictures of Ada's actual face.
And I think quite an improvement. Thanks Ikea!!! Not sure how those red boxes will hold up. Clear would have probably been a better choice, but this way it will be like Christmas every time she opens them up.
We'll see how it looks after Ada the Torpedo is done with it.
