Walking!! Clinging!! Swinging!!

She's been taking a few steps here and there for a while, but now, well, I think the pictures speak for themselves.  This was Saturday morning, and then Saturday afternoon:

Sunday we went to check out the playground on Patch.  We saw Jennifer out playing with her girls so we stopped by to say hi.  Elora lunged for Jennifer as soon as she saw her, and then immediately put her head down on her shoulder.  It was neat, because she rarely does that sort of thing.

Emily was too busy playing with a little friend to pay us much mind, but Ava wasn't. She was playing around the picnic table, and being adorable.

We encouraged Elora and Ava to say hi to one another, and it was going well until Elora decided to lunge for Ava the way she'd lunged for Jennifer.  Part of it was that she got too excited, and part of it was that she's still not real steady on her feet and she wanted to hold on to Ava for support.
Anyway, it totally freaked out poor Ava and she went to grab for her Mama, but Elora was still trying to hold on to her for balance.  It was so funny, and so cute!  After that, we left Jennifer to comfort a traumatized Ava (I may be exaggerating) and went to go swing.

Elora wasn't too excited about it at first, but she caught on.  And check out the shades!

After swings, it was slides.  I slid down with her the first time.

After that, I helped her to slide solo.

And she kept those sunglasses on the whole time! Either she wants to be like Mama and Daddy, or she just realized that they made the sun less bright.  I'm not sure I care why she kept them on, they're just so darn cute!

A lot of pictures this time, I know.  But seriously, how could I not post these??  And I needed this, the sunny-happy-fun-goodness.  It was exactly what I needed.


  1. love the pics. looks like such a fun day! Her little dimples in the last picture are SO CUTE!

  2. Great photos! I see another scrapbook page coming.

  3. So cute! Looks like a fun day. I liked watching her today even though she was unsure she was just so very very cute!

  4. She's so adorable! Love the shades.

  5. ok adrienne!! Did you back post this? Or postdate? I know you mentioned in your newest that you won't do that again....I never saw this one which makes think you...this is the problem with trying to back post to when the even happened . If you've got different days you want to post about just schedule new posts for the future about a day apart to give people time to see them but back dating does not work. No one knows to look back. did I make any sense?

    on to the pictures! You know I love them and baby Elora. What a little baby doll. The thing with ava was hillarious! She had the look of oh my god, get her off of me!

  6. that last picture is killer! she has the cutest little smile! And the walking is really exciting! Yay Elora!
