Spring is Here!

Words cannot express how happy I am that it’s finally getting nice out again!

I think my child would live outside if we let her. We go on walks just about every day now, and the past couple of times I thought it would be fun to capture a few pictures along the way.

She loves doing stairs all by herself 🙂
“I think I’ll run in circles now”
not a big fan of standing on the retaining wall…

“doggie!” her first word besides mama/dada – she LOVES doggies 🙂

    Such a cutie!! We are loving this warm weather too!! It has been in the 80s here and I took the boys to the beach yesterday!

  • I know – I had to remember to get some pics of things other than Hayden 😛 The beach sounds way fun! Too bad we don't have one even remotely close… at least there are pools!

  • So many fun pictures!! I am loving the weather lately – it has been perfect for being outside!!

    Hayden is getting so big! Look at those two bottom teeth! She's just too cute! And how wonderful it must be to have so much family nearby!

  • You're so lucky to live so close to family! If my mom lived on my street I would probably never get anything done because I would just want to hang out with her.

  • Awww, so fun!  She is adorable!

  • Little Stitch

    You are living my dream!  Same neighborhood as family- that is so wonderful.  Little Hayden is such a happy cutie! 🙂

  • Great pictures. That's awesome you have so much family in your neighborhood, literally within walking distance!! That's a blessing.

    It's sunny here too, in the 70s, but we unfortunately I came down with a cold on Monday so we haven't been enjoying it this week. I can't wait to feel better and get outside!

  • Those shoes that Hayden is wearing, are thise PediPeds?? They look a lot like the same pair Sophie has. But hers is pink with the flower.

  • Aweee! I love all the pictures! So adorable! 🙂

  •  exactly :)I love that Hayden is big enough to run around on her own now too 🙂

  • hehe – i know! i was just telling Wes how weird it is that this is Hayden's second spring! Time is going so fast already!

  • yes I know it truly is a blessing 🙂 It's funny you say that because having them so close is the only way I DO get stuff done sometimes lol

  •  hehe – i love how much she loves being outside… even after she was born last year, going on a walk with the stroller would always brighten her mood 🙂

  •  aww – yes it really is wonderful! It started out with just my grandparents out here, then my family, eventually wes and i came back here, and then another set of my grandparents! we love it 🙂

  •  that stinks! I hope you get to feeling better soon!

  •  thanks! I love taking pictures outside… natural light just makes them turn out so much better 🙂

  • She's adorable! And it's so cute that you live near your family! 

  •  thanks! – we love it 🙂

  • Wow, look at that girl go! trompin all over town! woo! She's so cute, and those pics are awesome 🙂
