This past week we've been taking Phebe out for spins on her birthday present - a Radio Flyer tricycle - that I don't have to bend over, plus I can also steer it with the handle. Oh yeah! I love it! And so does Phebe! She now understands my requests for: "Hold on tight!" and "Put your feet up!" Most of the time she works with me, but then there's the other times that she drags the toes of her shoes on the footpath and turns around and just grins at me, as if to say... "Yeah yeah yeah, whatever Mama!" The girl is all rascal! Honestly, every single time I say the word 'come', she runs the other way, usually to a corner somewhere, giggling her head off. She thinks it's a game! I'm usually wrestling her to put on her shoes, coat, hat... anything really! She's so wiggly and giggly. It's definitely a whole new parenting experience for me! Today we dropped by a local clothing store, I took my eyes off her for half a second (because the lady that owns the store said something to me) and when I turned around, there she was, she'd climbed up the 2 steps and was standing in the middle of the window display! She is comical in everything she does. I'm never entirely sure if I should be laughing or telling her 'no'! The weather is chilly but beautiful here. I love the Fall weather and since my girly likes to be outdoors, well, we try to be out there as much as possible. She loves getting knee deep in leaves and running through them! Winter is getting close... I'm trying to prepare myself for it. Today we walked up to the library and I signed us up for Thursday morning 'Toddlertime', because we're definitely going to need some indoor activities when the weather turns colder! It's so nice to be getting into a routine now. My hubby returns to work on Monday, it's been wonderful having him with us throughout the past 6 weeks. He's hoping to work short weeks, right up to Christmas and we couldn't be happier!
