This pass weekend was the best we’ve had in a long time! Little miss Adriana was finally able to try out her pink wagon that she got for her birthday. O....M....G! This little girl was having the absolute time of her life as soon as we started moving down the driveway. We only walked down to the park to play a little and then detoured to the outside of the neighbourhood to visit the infamous ducks. This time she was free to get out and watch them instead of being buckled in – sorta, the wagon has a seat belt.
This was also the first time we were able to take her to the park and let her run around by herself too. When she started walking it was wet, then snow and then more rain – finally gone and now it’s dry enough. She decided to go on the swing first because the other kids were on them too. Then she decided she had enough and wanted to go on the slide by herself for the first time. Of course she needed help to walk up the steps to the platform and I held her hand so she could sit on the top by herself. With her Daddy waiting for her at the bottom, off she went down the slide by herself!! I’m not too sure who was more happy, Adriana or Mommy because she did it by herself?
We played for about 45mins and then hopped in the wagon again and headed to the bridge where the ducks are. These are the same ducks we visited almost every single day last year! Almost all the females are “hiding” until the little duckies are ready but the males are still around. Adriana was
to quacking at the ducks the whole time. We weren’t prepared to see them
but I plan on keeping some bread/snacks in the wagon for next time. We headed
back home and of course she spots a dog by one of the houses. Every time this
happens, it’s like when an elderly person sees a newborn. Seriously. Her eyes
light up, hands together tucked under her chin, and she even does the “AWWWWW!”.
Every, single, time.
The next day we did it all again. This time we let her get into her wagon by herself and she grabbed the buckle all by herself. FYI: there are two seats and if the other buckle isn’t done up – she will reach across and do it up. Safety First, of course. The boyfriend went to get some groceries and since Adriana didn’t want to nap, we went to the park instead! On our way, we ran into a neighbour who has a little boy (just over 2yrs old), who we hadn’t met yet. He tried to share his Recorder with her but it wasn’t of interest to her. He even tried to kiss her good bye but she wasn’t having any of that either! ....Good Job little girl ;)
Since it was just Adriana and I, the slide was a bit harder. It was more running around than anything! But again she loved it. When her Daddy showed up – everything stopped and she wanted to go home. Daddy’s little girl.
We are getting closer to our Newfoundland trip!! About 3mths to go now and we’re off on Adriana’s first plane ride. We keep pointing out airplanes in the sky and use her Airplane puzzle piece to teach her it flies – unlike the sailboat or car. She even makes the engine noises Lol It will definitely be interesting and I know many people are excited to see her too. I’m making sure to bring the good camera (Canon T3i) with us so I can get some really good pictures of her with people and in the same places I had visited years ago!
This coming weekend, Adriana will be going for her Doctor’s visit. Yes, more needles but I can’t wait to see how much she weighs and how tall she is again. She already is starting to wear some 2T size clothes but its hard to find pants that fit her in the waist and length. She’s a tall girl but not a chunker! Needless to say she wears a LOT of jeggings. I’m never worried about her getting needles – she always does well, Trooper. She actually loves the doctor. Whenever we’re waiting in the room and she comes in, Adriana goes right to her arms! Hopefully it stays this way for awhile....wishful thinking?
