Everyone is gone, the house is quiet and I’m trying to catch up on work that I’ve been neglecting. I think even Chase is wondering what’s up with all the silence. The good news is that the weather is still beautiful and we’ve been taking full advantage. I truly believe that we have all experienced improved moods since the weather got warm and sunny. Even Ben noticed that everyone seems just a little perkier.
Chase’s first birthday came and went and along with it a lot of changes. On Sunday night Chase made for the stairs and climbed all the way to the top and was just as proud of herself as can be. This means new things for her new play set because she can climb up and go down the slide by herself and she’s pretty excited about that too. I think she’ll walk very soon but if she goes about walking the way she’s done everything else there probably won’t be much of a warning.
I got Chase some new vintage toys so old that they actually say made in USA. I have no idea why I picked up so many pull toys but at a dollar a piece why not? I also found some cool European duck pull toys. The single duck has a mechanism that quacks when you pull it. Chase is really into ducks now and says cack cack cack every time she seen one. Me and my sister really cleaned up on Sunday.
Here are some pictures from today.
