Getting closer to the finish line!
Day 70 – Today was gorgeous weather so we spent a lot of time outside. We are going to try out a little gardening this year so Annaliese helped us to get started. We planted a few of our veggies in egg cartons to get them started indoors. Annaliese liked the dirt part the best.
Day 71 – Today we played with Play-doh. Annaliese still can’t really figure out if she likes it or not. She mostly likes pushing her fingers or other objects into it. Its definitely a good way to practice her colors though!
Day 72 – As I was throwing away an empty tissue box today, Annaliese protested. I decided to let her play with it since she showed such interest. I let her stuff and un-stuff her cloth wipes in the box. She really liked it; especially taking all of the wipes out and throwing them around the kitchen.
Day 73 – This was Annaliese’s first year of actually being able to dye Easter eggs. I bought a kit for $2 at the grocery store. It was a little messy but the end result was pretty cool!
Day 74 – Daddy’s birthday is also approaching so we decided to make a gift. I used a recipe for finger paints that I have seen passed around on facebook and pinterest many times. It turned out pretty well…here is the link.
Annaliese painted a beautiful picture for her dad.
Day 75 – With the coming of spring we have had a huge increase in wildlife in the backyard. The birds, squirrels, and rabbits are everywhere! Today Annaliese and I pulled up our bean bags to the sliding glass doors and just observed outside. She was fascinated with all of the animals playing in the yard and it was nice to sit down for a few minutes 🙂
Day 76 – We took advantage of the nice weather again and headed outside. We brought some of Annaliese’s cups and tea set items and filled them with water. Our “water tea party” was quite messy but lots of fun. Why is it that toddlers like pouring water so much?
