Just a few shots of me & Liv after we got home from the mall:
And one of Livia being quite the goof-ball!
My husband was so excited to see the cell phone pics & video of Liv jumping on the trampoline/trapeze thing at the mall, that we decided to take here there once again so the both of us could enjoy her jumping show.
This time we came equipped with a good camera & camcorder. I hoped to be able to get one of the good videos up, but unfortunately it's just too large to upload directly onto the blog. I'm not giving up entirely; I have an idea of what to do, but it may take a little more time than I'm willing to devote right at this time.
So, after Liv figured out what she was going to get to do again, she was SO excited! And once again, she amazed the people working there. Livia isn't the least bit shy or timid when it comes to jumping!
She went right up to the girl working there for help getting onto the contraption:
A couple of weeks ago out at my parents, Liv's cousin came over for a visit. While there, the girls had some dinner; one just ate a little more variety than the other... Liv loves to try new foods, and she thinks that everyone needs to try new foods as well. It's obvious that not everyone feels that way. Case in point:
This little cutie was almost forgotten from a couple of weeks ago:
Our daughter seems to be QUITE an artist! Perhaps it's [way] too early to compare her to the 'greats', but I couldn't resist the funny title for this post! Thanks to a super gift from her Aunt Kendra, Liv has been having tons of fun 'coloring' in the bathtub... and just this week those random colorings have totally evolved.
On my Mom's day off work, we were able to make it over to the neighbors for some jumping-fun for Livia. My parents have taken her over there to jump with the kids before, but on this day it was just going to be Liv jumping. Meg, Jay & Sam were at day care, but Liv's Aunt Tanya gave us the OK to let her jump on the trampoline. So off she went!
After Liv was finally convinced that she'd been swinging long enough, we decided to take a walk over to the neighbors'. On the way there, we passed by the cows -- which Liv is now convinced that are 'her' cows! I can see why she thinks that:
I feel so blessed to be able to spend all this extra time with Livia lately! Something that she definitely enjoys is swinging -- and since we were out in the country with my mom on this particular day, I was able to get some great photos of my little munchkin:
Guess who got new boots??? I'll give you a hint... She has blonde hair, blue eyes, and is almost 3. Give up? It's Livia, of course!
[see squirrel encounter #1 first]
Just a few days ago, we had to stop at that same rest stop, and sure enough -- we had another squirrel come up to us! Livia had some fries left over from her lunch.
She was EXTRA good this particular day, and was treated with McDonalds. She actually fell asleep with a little nugget in her hand!
Anyway, Liv decided that the squirrel would definitely like the fries:
