slippin' and a slidin'

okay, i have to apologize for starting this post off with a picture of my backside (and yes, that is a white SHIRT under my pink shirt) but i just had to show off the talents of our little boy. as you can see in this home video, scott will sit at the top of the slide and when i reach my hands toward him he reaches back and scoots his bum along until he slides down the slide... all by himself!! he's done it many times and he LOVES it! just watch -


it was so warm today (about 40 degress! woo hoo!) and we played outside as much as possible. scott is now big enough to sit in his stroller without his carseat and i'm about to shed a couple tears at how fast he is growing up. just look at him with his little boat shoes... aren't they the cutest? (until he kicked one of them off on our walk with our friend ann jones and we had to retrace all of our steps to find it!)

and this is a typical image of scott on a not-so-warm day. he loves to play with his basket of toys. i thought he looked angelic in this picture.

and of course i had to add another picture of scott playing with his dad. they are seriously so cute together.

I love that he pushes himself down the slide! Alli loves playing outside, but we haven't done that one yet!

I am glad he loves the slide. Warm days are so nice to be able to play with the kids outside. I think they get bored being in the house all day.

So cute! Wasn't yesterday amazing! We went for a walk when I got home from work. The sunshine makes me so happy! Scotty is such a cutie. Hope this weekend is just as nice!

I can't believe he is big enough to go down the slide! He is seriously so dang cute. I love those pictures of his grumpy face...so sad, but so cute! Lucy and Scott need to meet. I miss my Nata.
