Cassette Tapes

While the rest of America has moved from cassette tapes to CDs, iPods, and beyond, here we are still stuck in the 80's! My car only has a cassette player plus cassettes are very cheap - even free - so we've enjoyed making a small collection for Margo. However, when she unravels them it reminds me why technological advance is a good thing!

Evidence of a fun day

Margo and I enjoyed a fun outing with Nana today shopping and eating... as evidenced by the lollipop in her hand while sleeping! Doesn't get better than that!

IKEA Bandwagon

While in Orlando, Margo and I enjoyed visiting shops around the area that we don't have in small-town South Carolina. We enjoyed an outing to an IKEA store and I have totally fallen in love with the designs, ideas, and prices! I picked up a catalog, bought a toy for Margo, and who knows if some furniture may soon find its way into our home...

Walking at the park

"Pincess Be-ow"

Margo loves listening to Disney soundtracks on internet radio. Her very favorite is "Beauty and the Beast" and every time she hears a song from it she runs to the kitchen shouting "pin-cess be-ow" because she wants to watch scenes from the movie with Princess Belle in them. I still can't believe how much she connects and understands!

Our Big Talker!

Who's copying whom?

Hop, Skip, Jump

Margo's new game is to hop and jump in her crib when she wakes up from a nap. She wants me to come in her room to watch and join in her fun. We usually play with some of her stuffed animals by me using them as a puppet show at her crib bumper level and after the performance she enjoys jumping around as if she is in a bouncy house. She always wants "mommy in?" but I try to inform her that the fun would end very quickly if I tried to climb in and proceed to break her crib in a million pieces. So, she seems happy enough to enjoy Carolina and me as spectators.

Another Day at the Park

It is finally cool enough to spend some time outdoors again! We enjoyed an evening at O'Dell Weeks and all enjoyed the playground!
